After a long time, I finally got around to buying a 6-pack of this again recently. The people in the store I go to gave me funny looks but I have fond memories of "The Champagne of Beers" and I wanted to see how well it held up over time. While this will never be Sierra Nevada or Troegs in my book, there is still a special place in my heart for this today and I was surprised how well it held up over all of these years.

I don't think I need to describe the pour much since most Adjunct Lagers look the same when compared to each other. The head wasn't that tall but the lacing was surprisingly decent and so was the carbonation. There is the usual corn and rice filler her but because there's just enough of a Wonder Bread-like aftertaste to this, there's actually enough body to save the day. A sightly grainy undertone lasts throughout and there's just a hint of sugary sweetness in the back as well. This isn't complex but this isn't water either!

Session beer? Look no further. All the HIpsters may love their PBR until their dying day but that just means that there's more of this for me. Everyone has their guilty pleasure and this is mine. Champagne tends to go down easily and effortlessly and that's the case with this too. Some of us know the deal that comes with living the High Life and we're ok with that - there's a good reason why this has been around for over a century!
