Well, this is obvioulsy not an amazing beer, and my opinion might be a little biased, but I'm giving a high rate because I think this beer is an awesome choice if you're just looking for a beer to drink while watching sports, a movie, or even to drink with some friend.

Maybe it's not the most common choice for that, but it's absolutely my favourite as it's good enough for me to feel that I am not wasting or drinking garbage, and its price is still good enough for a beer to buy often.

Appearance (3.25) : pours a 2 finger head that quickly recedes to a 1 finger height and then a ring. Draught it is not. Body is transparent gold straw, champagne-like in appearance.

Aroma (3.75) : A sweet aroma, with sweet grains, malt, corn, barley, and a little hop. Just a lot of fresh, pleasant sweetness.

Taste (3.75) : This beer tastes like a much more prestigious beer. This is not a typical B/M/C beer. The hop comes out right away, enveloped by a subtle malty sweetness that compliments the hop nicely. Dare I say there's a pinch too much hop? Just barely. Impressive. A hoppy, dry finish with some dark and murky rye notes.

Mouthfeel (3.75) : creamy, a subtle carbonation - with a dry, musky finish.

Overall (3.74) : I was really impressed here. I wish I would have bought more. I like it a lot and can't wait to try their "light" offering. Much better than youd expect. Almost German-esque.

I took a trip to Las Vegas recently and one of the Casinos on the strip, Casino Royal had these for 1.00. Haven't had a Michelob for years and to my surprise it had a nice smooth malty taste, much fuller than I expected with just the right amount of hops. I was in complete disbelief that a domestic beer could taste this good. I generally have to pay 9.99-10.99 a six pack for the really tasty stuff but this is a nice brew to pack your fridge with if you like to pound down a six pack or two during a football game with the boys. Give it a try.
