Pint on draft at a local pizza parlor.
Pours with a well-sized, creamy and durable head over a clear deep amber body. Very good looking but it is downhill from here. The feel is OK, with a smooth creamy but overly thin body. The aroma has earthy hops which also bring a modicum of spiciness, plus a hint of baked bread from the malts. A suggestion of a metallic character that, fortunately, is missing in the taste.

Flavor: mild but earthy hops with a rather minimal malt base.

O: a bit more hoppy than the standard AB/Miller/Coors lager but, despite the darker color, lacking in malts.

Serving: Can
Served: 7 April 2014

Apperance: Had this one from the can, so can't really comment. Good looking can though, very traditional.

Smell: Smells sweet and somewhat corny, much like a PBR.

Taste: Not bad for a cheap beer. Definitely sweet but it's a malt sweetness, not an adjunct sweetness. The malt notes are rather soft, but are sweet and caramelly. No hop presence in the taste or in terms of bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Lively and carbonated.

Overall: An American classic, and a beer I've really been looking forward to trying. If this was distro'd in my area, I would definitely use it as my go-to cheap beer or party beer. This has much more flavor than BMC macros, but is competitively priced with those sorts of beers. A beer everyone should have at least once, if just for the history of it.
