Reviewed from notes. Enjoyed many times over the years reviewed here for the first time. Poured into dimpled glass mug fro reviewing. Typical AAL straw yellow coloring with that familiar funky smelling corn sweet flatness pours a fluffy head of about a half an inch to an inch in size. Not as sweet as the smell, a bit funky a bit of a watery finish with a bland attempt by some hops. Overall, I'll have this every now and again as it is brewed by whomever is currently brewing the Pabst line up (Miller contract) of old man cast off beers of yore. Really is like PBR's lesser cousin as it's not as sweet and goes down ok as a session beer, but I've found comes back to haunt and hang around the next day, which keeps me away from the beer that was once brewed here in Cleveland until 1971 by the Carling Brewing Company.
