Bottle @ Buddy’s Crab House & Oyster Bar, Surf City, North Carolina. Amber with a carbonation and no head. Standard lager with a more malty nose than taste.

Bottle @ home, sent from Buffalo, NY. Been ISO this wale for quite a while. Isn’t a shelfie out here but I guess it is upstate New York. Clear, slightly burnt orange appearance with a thin cream colored head. Some caramel / toasted malty notes in the aroma along with a bit of spiciness from the hops. Hmmm, more toast in the flavor along with some doughy / crackery notes. Almost reminds me of a Samuel Adams Boston Lager. Not half fucken bad.

TAP: copper/amber pour, smells like wheat/grass, taste is earthy. Not great, not terrible, just there. A Philly staple.

Golden amber body with a good sized off white head that is actually kind of impressive. (3+) Rough grainy aroma hints at macro alcohol is off putting, with a light hint of sweet dried grass thats not unpleasant. Modest hoppy bitterness accents a sweet primary flavour profile. Sweet melange of muddled malts, grains and possible other fermentables? Average palate is more full than most pale lagers. I can’t say I enjoyed it, but it is inoffensive, and for a mainstream pale lager its surprisingly drinkable and has an inkling of real flavour to it. Handily exceeded my very low expectations.

12 oz. can. Pours a clear, copper-colored body topped with a medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is light pale malt with notes of grain and bread. The flavor is light pale maltiness with a slight amount of caramel sweetness, light breadiness with a light hop character that creates a small amount of bitterness. The finishes is crisp and clean. Light-bodied. It served a purpose while in Hilton Head.

DuffMan (10456) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2011
Clear bright amber, average white head with poor retention. Light grainy aroma. Watery light grainy palate with hints of caramel and metal. Pretty blah.

Draft at Wintzell’s Oyster House in Mobile. I was surprised at how common this beer is in Mobile and other cities down south, since it’s such a traditional Yankee brew. Pours amber with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, hops, grass, grain. Flavor follows suit, with a general earthiness to it. Mouthfeel is light and grainy. Finishes crisp with minimal aftertaste. When the choice is between this or typical American macro lagers (and that will generally be the case), I’m going with this every time.

On Tap. Pours a light brown with a small white head that dissipates rapidly. Aromas of caramel malt, faint hops, and apple cider. Taste is like caramel apple cider- not sure how to better describe it. Somewhat buttery mouthfeel. Hops are in wanting. Good clean and sweet finish. My pick out of the macro American lagers.

Salt and iron are not good things in a beer i.m.o….Are there some hops in this one, or just corn?

3.3
onceblind (9890) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2017
Clear bright copper hue with a thin bubbly spotty cap. Nice amber malty lagerish nose with calm amber and toffee notes on a light body. Smooth lagered flavor with semisweet amberish tones with light toffee and a bready doughy finish. Lightly sweet and amberish and bready. On the nice side of okay.
