This beer is my go-to beer, especially for the price. It is great all year round, but especially refreshing in the summertime. I love it paired with a good grillout/tailgate experience. It is not one of the best beers I have had, but is a tasty, reliable beer for your money.

My old standby. Cheap but awesome. Almost no head even when poured hard, but what a robust, refreshing taste, and the color is something to admire. Almost as good room-temp from the bottle as it is cold from a glass.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: pours a 1"+ off white head that slowly falls leaving some nice lacing on the glass. Color is a clear amber with mild streaming carbonation.

Aroma: toasted barley malt dominates the aroma, other than that, it is fairly mild.

Mouthfeel: light and frothy with a somewhat dry finish.

Flavor: toasted bread crust, some corn, raisin, maybe a hint of hops in the finish.

Overall: decent but pedestrian.
