I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured a normal lager looking golden color nothing special. The beer had a poor head and I was not looking forward to much. The beer also stunk, smelled sour. HOWEVER, the beer was not sour tasting and was quite wonderful. Nothing special like I said but very drinkable. I like it and would buy it again with its slightly grassy clean taste.

Hap & Harry's lager (Nashville, TN) on tap at the Casual Pint in Knoxville.

Pale golden with a very short-lived head 

Looks like a pitiful light lager, but has a decent aroma and flavor. 
Mostly malty in the nose but with a subtle hop presence. 

Flavor: notably more hoppy that the aroma indicates, with a lingering if light hop note. 

Feel: light body; crisp carbonation. Thin but not watery.

O: good flavor for style

Small white head dies into a nice lacing above a clear golden colored beer.

Aroma is sour grain malts with a little breadiness and maybe a little hops adding to the sourness.

A lighter bodied beer with a pretty big taste with a lot of sour grain malts, corn syrupiness, and some hops to a lesser degree.

A slightly dry aftertaste that brings with it some slight sourness.

When i first saw this in the glass I thought "Yippee, another Budweiser wannabee", but this beer had a lot more tastes coming through, I could drink a few of these.

Absolutely wonderful after a long day at work, refreshing and light. However, without a good days work before hand I found the beer to be lacking and almost a different experience. Very little to no head when poured from a bottle. I live in Buffalo so get a lot of exposure to Canadian and American lagers, and this was better than most easily attainable North American Lagers.

Somewhere between a miller light and Yeungling. Its typical look of an American lager, a medium copper, clear and with medium foam that fades fast. Sweet caramel smells, grassy hints of hops and sweet corn. The taste is a bit watery with corn, and caramel malt in the middle and a low hop background of earthy, grassy hints. Light, refreshing, crisp, clean and easy to drink. Pretty typical and boring. I wonder if it is an attempt to appeal to the commerical crowd?

Appearance: Pours a dark golden color with a fizzy white head that leaves leaves so fast it doesn't even remember the definition of lacing.

Smell: Sweet and malty.

Taste: Very sweet and malty with a rum type flavor.

Overall: The beer is way too sweet and I really don't like the rum flavor.
