No head, no lace. Yellow color and nearly clear.

It smells like wet cardboard and brewery floor. Not attractive.

Round, malty flavor. Nearly no hop which makes this slightly sweet. Thin bodied and highly carbonated. No aftertaste.

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.

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

A- Golden yellow with a half inch head. Retention is so-so. Very clear.
S- Grain, a bit of grass, and a touch of bread dough to it.
T- Fairly sweet up front, being a bready sweetness. There is a grassy character in the finish. Minimal bitterness to it.
M- Crisp. Carbonation was a bit high. Body was appropriate for style.
O- It's an ok beer and an easy drinking one while out at a music bar, but not something that I need to repurchase for at home.

a clean amber/gold pour with a finger of head throughout. smells yeasty, a slight lemon zest, reminds me of yeungling. tastes just like it smells... definitely tastes like yeungling. not much else to say really. light bodied, crisp, and refreshing.

overall, a decent lager. very much like yeungling, in pretty much every aspect.. except a bit more refreshing and lighter in color.

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?
