Thanks to one of my non BA friends for bringing this back from a recent trip home.

A - Poured a golden color with a white head that leaves lacing behind

S - Is of very sweet malt

T - Follows the smell but its tastes very good for the style

M - This beer has a light body with higher carbonation to it

D - To me this is an excellent example of the style very easy to drink with a good taste as a beer geek you won't be blown away but for the style you will be worth a shot

A - Poured a very clear light yellow with a finger of head

S - Hints of grain, malt, and cigarette smoke....which is awful.

T - The taste reminds me of bad malt liquor. Glad I split this bomber four ways because it...sucks.

M/D - Mouthfeel was light and watery. The flavor was so bad it was barely drinkable

From what I gather, this is their old recipe beer. And I mean *old* recipe, as this is supposedly the same formula that was used in 1855.

And it's a heck of a nice pour for an Adjunct. You know how High Life has a real nice head but it goes away after like ten seconds? This is the same head, same tight white consistency, but it sticks around for ages.

Smells mild, light adjunct grass and corn along with Schlitz-level hops (that is, more hops than your average BMC, but nowhere near as much as a German pils).

Tastes good, the same sized flavor as Gusto Schlitz or Grainbelt, only a lot more balanced and pilsenery. Grain and weeds up front, hops near the back, and a pleasant beery sourness lingers on the back on the tongue.

Pours a light golden color with a small white head that left some generous lacing. Aroma is sweet and grainy with hints of corn. Taste is sweet up front, plenty of grainy, husky malt flavors, hints of corn, and the lightest of hoppings. Dry on the finish, medium body, very clean and crisp. Good carbonation. This would be a great lawnmower beer if it only came in cans. A very decent and slightly above average AAL.
