A beer haiku for you:

"An old standby beer,
Easy to drink and to own.
Anchors away, friends!"

Many years ago--prior to being introduced to Belgians, Brooklyns, Dogfish, and multiple other offerings I had this beer at the top of my list. Having not had one in nearly a decade, my revisit brought back good memories but provided clarity about my changing tastes. Bottom line--very drinkable and enjoyable beer, without pretense, but not nearly as tasty as many of its peers in this $10/six pack price range.

Cheers!
