I was surprised by this beer. I picked up a 6 pack of 12 oz cans from a gas station in Northern Vermont. It's not available where I live, so it's my first try. Not groundbreaking, but... this is by no means 'awful' beer. It's surprisingly clean, more so than your PBR or High Life, both of which I like. The flavor is smooth and pleasant, I bet it's great on a hot day. It can't really be picked apart too much though.

It's not trendy, nuanced, or lovingly crafted. Don't let it warm up and drink it from a snifter. But for what it is, I think it's great and I'll buy it again, particularly at <$5 for a sixer. If you enjoy AAL, give it a try- it's a good one.
We're here to respect beer, so let's not call things awful that are simply out of fashion.

A terrible beer. It's my Grandfather's favorite, and I've had more of these than I care to admit
