edit 2010- Thia years IMO is a little better, still way behind Foothills seasonal though.
As a die hard IPA user maybe my taste buds are warped. IMO this is a session beer with very little distinction. Obviously a very safe drinkable lager, and not bad by any means. There is just nothing to excite you drinking this beer, Not much of a head, little on the nose. Where are the hops? I know it's not an IPA, but still a little hops showing thru is what makes the European lager shine. Drinks like a BMC in my opinion, and in comparison an expensive one at that. Nice to try but Spaten Oct Fest is much better.
