Very unique and interesting bottle that appears to have the shape of a barrel molded into the neck. Poured a nice light copper that was bright at the bottom of the glass, but appeared just a little hazy just under the head which was quick to dissipate and did not last long. The smell was the familiar tang of American lager; tart, sour metallic tang mixed with sweet malts and barely noticeable hops. The mouthfeel is much thicker than any American style lager; sweet malt and maize dominate with some hop bitterness coming near the end; it feels almost under-carbonated compared to the "sting" that's expected with an adjunct lager.
All in all this is an enjoyable beer that tastes like something from a craft brewery. Not perfect, and it would be difficult to session a beer like this because of its tendency to become cloyingly sweet and thick in the mouth, but still something I would crave and enjoy drinking occasionally. A lot of pretentious snobs comment here that it tastes like a Coors product. They're full of baloney. If you put it in a micro-brew bottle and served it to them, they would not know the difference. If you see some at your local store, try it and see for yourself.
