From a can at home. Nice looking beer. Thick creamy head that recedes to a sparse lacing in the a tall pilsner style glass. Active streams of bubbles accompany a staunch aroma. Very refreshing taste with a solid mouth-feel & a mild aftertaste. All in all a great beer at a great price.

I used to drink this beer in Jr. High. I hadn't had it since then (early 70s), so when I had it recently, I was a little nervous. I was not just relieved, but overjoyed that it tasted exactly as I thought I had remembered it (even though it was the first time I think I had had it actually cold). A flood of memories came to me of hanging out with my friends, skipping school, on a beautiful spring day, drinking beers by the lake.

16 oz. can

A: Looks more like a pale-ish ale with a strong base of yellowish brown
S: Smells pretty hoppy for a lager, but definitely notes of a creamy sweetness
T: Just tastes like a better version of Pabst Blue Ribbon. Tastes like a lot of standard American Pilsners even though it's a lager. Biscuit and toast tasting with very little complexity
M: Nicely carbonated and refreshing. Thin, but in a good way
O: Nothing special at all. I really do not like PBR so saying it is a better version is not high praise at all (despite what Nicolas Cage says). Pretty neutral beer that would be pretty good for a long drinking session. Has drinkability, but tastes pretty typical
