The beer pours a deep golden, amber color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a dry lager yeast scent along with a touch of caramel malts for color and malt character. The taste is decent. It has a smooth and easy drinking pilsner and caramel malt flavor that goes down easy and finishes dry. It's nothing spectacular, but it's quite quaffable. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a good drinker and a good go to cheap beer.

Appearance is really great. Huge off white head clear amber color and really dense lacing.
Still had some head at the bottom of my nonic glass. Smell is bready malt with a bit of caramel malt. No hop smell.
Taste is sweet malts with enough herbal hops to balance the taste.
Mouthfeel is medium with enough carbonation. Finish is slightly dry with a balanced finish.
Overall I did not care for the bottled version but this review comes from a 16 ounce can brewed in Ft. Worth (Miller) and it is much better than the bottled version. I hate to say this as a long time union member but the boys in Ft. Worth are brewing some excellent beers. Check out the Fosters Oil cans from the same brewery. Best Fosters ever. The can date Jun 16 2014. Has to be the brewed on date cause this beer was really tasty.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. smell is very mild, some light malts. Taste is also mild, malty, a bit of grains, refreshing but bland. Feels light in the mouth and overall not terrible, but nothing special about this beer.
