I absolutely love this beer. On tap in my game room, you can't beat this beer. Smell, heck, so good that it attacted my wife to marry me. Taste...there's hops and smooth lagering, what else could a beer drinker want? Mouthfeel, wonderful volume and hop notes tempered with malt that nothing else on the planet could compare in any lager. Drinkability....if you're a complete wuss then you'll hate this beer, otherwise you probably don't fear the robust hops and malt. This company makes the best mass produced beer on the planet, hands down. I love it and it's what's on tap!

A good American beer right here. Marvelous appearance, bold golden hue- love at first pour. It smells great. Outstanding, four stars. Yeasty American lager smell. This lager beer has an impressive taste, much more going on here with a impressionable, strong mouthfeel and taste. It lingers in your mouth as a reminder that this is not your typical domestic budweiseresque lager. Of all the lighter beers or lagers I have tried, this is one American classic I can always depend on as a quality go to brew.
