Bottle. An amber color with little aroma. It's deinately better than your standard American lager, with more of a malt presence. Easy to drink.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Amber color with a medium white head. Some malts and very slight hop flavor are noticable. Very boring, but for being a mass made American lager, it is better than most.

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2003
A nice regional lager that has a bit more flavor than your typical mainstream lager. Darker copper color is inviting in a sea of pale yellow lagers. A slight malt note, and a bit more bitterness. Very drinkable for when nothing else is available, or when you have macro-swill friends coming over.

Shag (3001) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2003
A nice lager. A big step above BMC but nothing outstanding. Its in the same category as a Sam Adams Boston Lager although not as good. Good malt profile with a slight hop presence. But they need to get this stuff out of a green bottle, it can cause a variation from one bottle to the next. A good way to get people away from thier Budweiser if nothing else. Decent stuff.

Has a amber color with some carbonation and a metalic smell. Taste is smooth, lightly malted and finishes with a light hop bitterness. Overall not a bad beer, nothing special, but I got this can for free.

kyzr (1546) - Montana, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Looks like apple juice in the glass. Skunk aroma to start. More malt than hops. Finish is a little rough.

2.7
psark (54) - Binghamton, New York, USA - SEP 19, 2003
Malt balanced in the tradition of a helles more than a pilsner. No flaws yet not inspiring. Offered widely in it's market area, it is priced the same as Bud but is superior.

JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Mostly thin malts in the nose, darker than most American Standards. Thin bodied with a sweet rush of corn and a puny hint of grassy, murky hops. Also had a skunked version in my Brewing Science class at Purdue just to show people why NOT to buy beer in clear and green bottles!

2.4
Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2003
This beer is apparently really big in PA/NJ but you don't really see it in my neck of the woods. Clear dark amber with a thin beige ehad that disappears quickly. Very thin lacing. Light hoppy aroma. Light-bodied and crisp with a mildly bitter hops flavor. The finish tells me that this is not a beer you should let sit for a long time before drinking. Overall I'd say "drinkable" about sums this beer up.

1.7
Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Light clear orange, small white head. Light stale hops aroma, has some beer taste, but not much. Way ahead of a typical budmillercoors product.
