Pours golden with white head on tap, aroma is some grass, hay, and earth. Taste is light grass, bread, slightly bitter finish. Very average lager, but better than a lot of them.

12oz can. Clear orange color. Thin, mostly white head, fading to minimal, then barely nothing, eventually. Decent lace enough lace to start out, though. Bubbles on side of glass. Moderate, more smooth + crisp, but stronger carbonation, but kinda acidic texture. Aroma is faint, a little watered down, but what’s there isn’t that great. Some caramel malt, light spice, little lagery funk, not much else. Not really much taste, either. Sour zest, some savory, not really sure, it’s faint. Good, for a cheap american macro-lager to get in lieu of Bud Light or whatever. I think this is slightly worse than Yuengling Light, but I’ll still probably continue to choose this version just because it’s a cheaper for the ABV. This is all about the cheap buzz, right?

Deep golden colour, with a thick white head. Malty aroma, caramel, some noble hop aroma as well. Flavour is well balanced, caramel sweetness nicely balanced by floral hoppiness. A nice surprise.

3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2006
When had on draft it’s really not too bad, but most likely because I’m not in beer-geek mode and rather just enjoying drinking beer with whatever food is being had. Anyways, this beer does seem to have some decent hop character when I tried it, and overall it tasted fresh. Not complex, not really that interesting, but far from being terrible tasting. Light and oily, fizzy texture. Lightly sweet flavors of maple and grassy hops. Decent but you basically know it’s not going to be too impressive.

blipp (9294) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Sweet malt aroma, not quite caramel, but close. Medium/thin body. Flavor is the same sweet malt from the aroma with the faintest hint of hops. This is way better that most pale lagers, I actually enjoy drinking it... and it’s pretty common to find on tap at many bars here in the northeast.

bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 6, 2003
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.

mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2008
[1267-20080408] 12floz can. Grainy haystacks and dirty barn floor aroma with mild green leaves and fermented Concord grapes. Clear, bright amber body with a medium-lasting bubbly white head. More fermented grapes in the flavour, mostly grainy alcohol and floral hay and straw bundles and peat notes. Medium body is grainy but not harsh. "It’s better than a kick in the teeth."

Smooth and crisp taste with some malty undertones. A really good beer to drink in a bar, or really anywhere. A decent head, but not much of a aftertaste or aroma. Good beer.

1.8
czar (9085) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
light yellow pour with a decent white head, little retention. sweet malts, light herbal notes, faint fruitiness, some citrus notes. aggressive carbonation, light body, no finish.

solidfunk (8964) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Very nice initial barley aroma. Pours amber without much head or lacing. Very good for style. Finishes slightly crisp. Nice barley profile. Tap at Blackfinn, stole a couple sips from a buddy’s glass.
