Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine May 2007.

The resurrection of the retro Lagers has created somewhat of an embedded drinking culture populated with über-hipsters and nostalgia drinkers--half American heritage and half grass-roots marketing.

Pours off with a rush of foam, subsiding to a thin, bubbly lace that only survives from the active carbonation. Perfect clarity with a dirty straw color. Clean, fresh-cut-hay graininess, cooked grits and a mild floral aroma. Super crisp, with a semi-high level of carbonation that yields a smooth light body. Fresh snap of grain husk has a sharpness to it; modest hop bitterness adds to the effect. Very clean all around. Quick flash of malt flavor jumps to a raw corn-grit taste with a mild dextrin flavor in the end. Finishes dry with a lingering bite of grain.

It is what it is: an American Macro Lager--but for what it is, it's not too shabby and sits on top compared to the rest of the retro Lagers out there. Without a doubt, a staple on a hot summer day. Pair with a plate of fried calamari & hot peppers--Rhode Island style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

16 oz can with no freshness date. Different look bu the same old style labeling. $4.99 for a six-pack of tall boys is not a bad price.

A- Two fingers of froth hold steady after a moderate to hard pour, clear golden straw hue.

S- Ahhh ... that beery smell. Mild spicy hops with that graininess with a back-end of cereal grains.

T&M- Solid crispness with in the light to moderate body, carbonation is at a good level. Light malt flavor, clean cereal grain taste. Slightly bitter hops with a touch of flavor. Dry finish with more graininess and a kiss of hop oil flavor in the end.

D- Wow! what a treat, finally a macro with a bit of flavor. I would not have a problem having this in my fridge year round ... hell, it just bumped Schlitz off of my list.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bright, golden yellow in color with perfect clarity. Poured with a thick, soapy foam that slowly reduced to a wispy cap. Grainy corn, grass and light malt aromas with floral hop notes. Carbonation was slightly subdued up front creating a creamy feel. Light, tangy hop crispness through the middle up front with a clean semi-dry finish. Flavors are in line with the aromas. Light, crisp and refreshing. By far the best lager of its kind that I've had to date. Love the tall boy too.
