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 Im not a great fan of.

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.

drowland (8476) - Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2009 I had this while visiting TN on vacation with my fiancees family and was apparently too busy to take good notes beyond the numbers. I was very excited to try this because Im from the Midwest and people talk about it all the time. Overall it was fine, but disappointing with all the hype. Now that Ive moved to FL, I can get this all the time. For being grouped with the "domestics" at restaurants and bars, its always the best choice. Get it fresh on tap or out of the can and its pretty darn good stuff - get it out of old green bottles and itll be skunked.

Had in bottle through a small sample and on tap at my Disney resort in Sept 09 .. . pours a light brown, with a great head, lacing is decent .. some faint caramel and dirty sock .. . i can see the popularity when compered to the BMCs but just a regular brew in the end.. . give a cat a can of food and its hyper, then counteract that with a its own bed, i dont get it ..

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Tap, House of Brews, NYC. Copper with a thinning off white rim. Cherry drop aroma with toasted nut hints. Bready, toasted malt slicked with caramel; vague cream and toasted nut hints. Toffee popcorn afters with vegetal streaks. More like a cheap Eurodunkel than a lager IMO. Drinkable.

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

bytemesis (7978) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 25, 2012
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.

after4ever (7943) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2006
12-oz., trade w/BeachBum25. Pours medium amber with a thin, diminishing white head. Yeast on the nose, with a nice, clean, mild, neutral flavor profile all through the drink, from the attack to the finish. Session lager for a hot sunny day. Thanks for the bottle!

Green bottle with much thanks to bu11zeye (and angrypirate06). Pours with a clear, light copper-amber body and a fading white head. Aroma is sweet, corn, caramel, nutty. Taste is water, nuts and caramel. Not entirely offensive. Lively bubbles, dry and watery finish.

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.
