UPDATED: SEP 11, 2005 Had this on tap. Copper color with thin head. Not much nose; a bit of malt. Spicy and a bit astringent. An okay choice if there isn’t a lot else on tap.

just a little above average beer. Gave it a higher overall score due to sentimental reasons. I grew up on this beer. It is still better than bud and coors. Its starting to become more popular around the country. If it was available in New Orleans i would drink it all the time if i just wanted to drink, like as an alternative to the huge beer companies.

When you live in PA and you drink beer you are going to have your fair share of "Lagers". Figured it was about time to rate this. Pours a translucent orange/copper amber with an average off white bubbly head that left some lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, pretzel and a little skunkiness. Flavor is similar to the aroma. A decent session beer although I have to admit I’m quite tired of it.

Amber body with an off white head. Grainy aroma. Slight hop finish. Not great, but far superior to the giants. Extra points for history.

(Draught, G&Ms) Pour a clear golden amber body with a moderate white head. Aroma of caramel and florals. Flavor of caramel malt, cream, and mid hops.

Poured a darker golden amber with white head. The aroma was a sweet malt and sorta skunky mix. The taste was a rich grainy malt flavor.

decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 23, 2006
An almost red pour. An aroma of corn and wet paper. A slight sweet malt flavor and a slight bitter finish. A watery fizzy mouthfeel. Not as bad for the style as I make it sound.

I got this on tap at Beef O’Brady’s in FL. Good amber color with a thin head that faded very quickly. Not particularly interesting, but easy drinking on a hot summer day. Better than Bud.

Whenever I have a party and I know there will be piss-beer drinkers there, I buy this. Not because it is bad, but because it is a light easy drinking beer that won’t scare away the Bud and Coors Light date rape fans. It’s kind of my way of forcing them to try something else and hoping they will broaden their horizons.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2006 It is what it is. In the Mid-Atlantic area, this is very available and it’s often served at parties, sporting events, etc. instead of the other macros, which is fine with me. It’s at least drinkable.
