Tap. Pours clear brown/amber, with almost zero head. Minimal aroma, with some sweet notes. Flavor is refreshing, with some malt character but almost no detectable hops. No aftertaste. Goes down smoothly; not a bad choice if served ice cold on a hot day.

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.

Draft to pint. Looks decent; copper with head that quickly turns into lacing. Smells like macro tap beer. Much like __________________ (fill in the blank with any pilsner advertised on tv). Tastes decent; upper end of macrobrews. Mouthfeel is meh. Overall, a decent beer for what it is.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2009 I had this while visiting TN on vacation with my fiancee’s family and was apparently too busy to take good notes beyond the numbers. I was very excited to try this because I’m from the Midwest and people talk about it all the time. Overall it was fine, but disappointing with all the hype. Now that I’ve moved to FL, I can get this all the time. For being grouped with the "domestics" at restaurants and bars, it’s always the best choice. Get it fresh on tap or out of the can and it’s pretty darn good stuff - get it out of old green bottles and it’ll be skunked.

downender (9008) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2007
On draft at a bar in Alexandria, Virginia October 2006. Pale amber colour with a slight white head. Aroma of sweet malt with a whiff of hops. The flavour also started with a touch of malt before a decent bitter finish. Pretty good for the style, which I’m not a great fan of.

Cuso (8950) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 9, 2015
Bottle kinda shared by Mattew, many thanks. Amber golden color with minimal white head. Malt, caramel in aroma. Light taste of malt, caramel, very light hops. OK.

Ibrew2or3 (8913) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2006
On Tap. Crystal clear light copper color with white head hanging around the edge of the glass. Light aroma mostly sweetness of some sort. Light and fairly crisp flavor of malty sweetness and some dryer grain malts. I can’t detect any hops. Very light beer that ends a little un-balanced leaning toward sweetness.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2011 Had from a variety case..enjoyed this beer, as far as pale lager’s go this is an average beer. Main point is that there is nothing offensive and its extremely easy to drink.

A nice beer at a nice price, at least compared to other more common "popular" (which I mean more common) beers that are out there. Nice light taste.

jackl (8556) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Can in DC. Copper pour with a small head. The nose is fairly sedate. Toasted grain, a bit of honey. Bread. The taste is lightly sweet. Apple and caramel candy. Dry finish. Somewhat watery. Fairly one-dimensional, though there’s nothing wrong with this. Light body, active carbonation. Overall, not bad for what it is.
