Aroma is sweet and mild. When poured in a glass, the color is dark copper. Flavor is sweet and the beer is pretty carbonated. Really the only downside of this beer is it can be a bit watery... But the beer is stille smooth, mild and refreshing. As far as American Lager goes, not as good as Sam Adams, but much better than Bud, Coors or Miller.

Not nearly as good as I expected. Tastes kinda flat, and doesnt have the "bite" I would have expected. A bit of a dissappointment.

A nice Amber Lager, in my opinion the best American one out there. For the price it is amazing. This is located in the East mostly, too bad for all the rest of people in the US.

I was somewhat skeptical about trying this one due to the price but was pleasantly surprised. The flavor is not outstanding but it is a very refreshing and drinkable beer. This would be a great lawnmower or party beer.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2011 Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy white head, short retention and no lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cereal, toast, biscuit), light spicy hops, and a clean lager character. Flavor is cereal and biscuit malt with faint hops and light bitterness. Light body and warmth, medium carbonation with a lightly sweet finish.

Has a dark body with a white head. The aroma is like wood, i cannot really say what type of wood but i get wood from it or carmel. Average flavor, it has a thick rolling feel on the toungue. It is a better choice then some other beers.

Wow....what a yawner. Not good, but not bad. By "not bad" I mean it didnt cause my dinner to defy gravity. Its hop character was mild alright.....all the way to being nonexistent. From a positive perspective its total lack of flavor allowed us to taste the pizza pretty well. I guess that should account for something.

I really wanted this beer to be interesting because of its history and because it was #200 for me, but it just wasnt :-( Watery and slightly sweet... pretty average in just about every way.
