3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quickly disappearing head, salty flavor pretty highly carbonated, yeasty flavor,dry aftertatste, a similar flavor to a coors lighth, but a little stronger in flavor and characterand not quite as sour, nothing offensive and definitely not a sweet beer, but not hoppy or sour.
"Apr0317" imprinted on the bottom of a 24floz can purchased for ~$1.25 in the St. Louis area. Consumed several times in the past, for this review 01.20.2017. Stag webpage states an ABV of 4.6%. Poured into a standard pint glass. In brief, the main characteristic separating this beer from other macro-style American pale lagers is that it is less sweet. There is a bit of diacetyl flavor too. While it ain’t great, it ain’t not too shabby either for what it’s worth. JStax (6919) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2016
12 ounce can. The beer is a clear yellow with a velvety head of white foam. The aroma has notes of corn husk, vanilla, and dried grass. Taste is sweet, grainy, and corny. Medium body, moderate carbonation, almost creamy in mouthfeel. Almost as though it’s a nitro beer. Mapinguarify (77) - SERBIA - MAY 26, 2016
Light, light, very light lager. It’s like you drink water. Not bad, but it’s just beer for hot summer days. ordybill (1805) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is big on grain and rice(?). The flavor is your basic AAL with grass, grain and some mild hops. Overall, a fair AAL. shrubber85 (11460) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Tall boy can (courtesy of Patrickctenchi and his never-ending quest for fine Pale Lagers). Corn/barley malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow with giant white head. Light barley malt and straw aroma. Very light body.

16 oz can:
Clear, light gold with a tall, sudsy, white head.
Sweet corn, barley malt aroma.
Taste is sweet....the same players.....corn, barley malt.....and a little bit of light, light fruit....
Not really bad at all....I have a soft spot for old, classic "macro-type" lagers....PBR, Hamm’s, Blatz....for what it IS, it’s exactly right. GunnyMeyer0369 (1) - Okawville, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2015 does not count
Stag is a good, drinkable and no nonsense beer. It’s not going to overwhelm those into craft beers. It’s not for those into light beers either. But it’s highly respected by those around Southwest Illinois as a beer that tastes much better than it’s price range normally would Finhead (1770) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Clear, yellow pour with a soapy, white head. The sweet aroma has corn and wheat. It has a light body with thin texture, average carbonation, and a very dry finish. Ibrew2or3 (8660) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2014
12oz can from Frank pours with a crystal clear watery gold body that supported a weak tan head. The mild aroma offers up some nice corn and pilsner like maltiness followed by apple to pear like fruity esters. The taste has a bit of a hoppy tang to it that has a citrus sense to it. It also brings corn and mild apple to pear fruity esters and then a sliver of malt graininess toward the finish. Not bad and this stays clear of being overly sweet. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Blake made me try it. Ok, it’s a macro lager. Ok it’s not good. But for the style I guess it’s ok. Maybe.
