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 ..

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.

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 buddys glass.

DruncanVeasey (8063) - 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: 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.

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.

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.

after4ever (7736) - 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!

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2003 1st rating was from having had this in a bar. A lot of people get all worked up over this for some reason. Decent amber appearance, solid white head, faint malty aroma. A step above the BMC lagers with a bit more of a hoppy bite to it and good for quenching thirst at tailgates etc. - Original Rating 3.7 Very impressed for an American lager - worth buying a six pack. Clean, crisp with no pretenses.

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.
