I like this beer. Except for the finish, I would say that its twins with Sam Adams Lager.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2006 Light amber color with a beige head. Aroma is like an American lager. Flavor of bready malt and some hops. Slightly bitter finish

A good flavorful beer. I enjoyed it while walking my dog and smoking a good cigar. It just went down well.

Have to agree with the rater who described this as inoffensive but only mildly interesting.

fairly unremarkable amber, i suspect that if i were blindfolded id guess it was an ordinary american micro-lager. nice knotty pine yellow, but about as much head as a finishing nail. hot dog bun bready maltiness in smell, hops on the palate. improves as it warms somewhat, but great beers served round here seldom get a chance to warm up much, so that tells you this one languished somewhat.
