Patriotic-looking (not the one pictured here) 16oz can from a 6-pack purchased at a local Grocery Outlet for $5.79. No clear freshness date, though the bottom of the can is stamped “1704 12:03.” Maybe this means April 17th, but what year? Who knows…

Poured a clear straw color, with a big, sudsy and noisy white head that remained in place for a couple of minutes, then began a rapid decline, though a foamy collar remained throughout it’s time in my glass. Lots of tiny bubbles could be seen hurtling skyward. Spotty lace left on the sides of my Boston Lager glass.

Cereal grains made up the nose, which was mercifully skunk-free, but was otherwise not that interesting.

The taste was about what one would expect for the style: malty up front, almost no hop flavor, and a clean finish. Again, there’s no skunkiness or crude, grainy harshness that sometimes seems like a given for the style.

Light bodied, with a decent mouthfeel – it’s a little watery, but given the style, it’s not bad

I was afraid this would be like the Silver Stallion I once encountered at the same place, but this was a decent, no-frills macro-style lager. Unlike other beer “finds” in such stores, this didn’t appear to have been sitting on a shelf for a long time, and was pretty drinkable for what it was. By no means was this something I’d tell someone to seek out, as it’s pretty interchangeable for many other, similar, beers, but for the same price I’d buy it again.
