Quite a pale yellow beer, typical macro looks. Decent head, a little thicker than most and lasts about as long as any mass-produced AAL; that is, not very long. Not much visible carbonation, glass like clarity. Boring looks. Smell is grainy, a faint hops nose, subtle metallic aroma, wet grass. Taste has a brief flash of grainy sweetness, fades quickly to adjunct/barley lager tastes. Minimal hops bitterness, clean finish. About average tastes. Light, bubbly carbonation, a little too much for my tastes, but not bad overall.

Left this one in the can because these beers all look more or less the same and I have decided the can is the proper serving vessel for the macro lager. Aroma is faint and barely existant. Woah, taste is not though! This stuffs actually good!
This is a very malty brew for the style and has a slightly buttery wheat bread taste balanced by a zippy bitter that slides in smoothly and leaves a crackery finish. It is mid bodied with a soft carbonation that slowly creeps in intensity, and drinkability is limited only by a full feeling in the gut. This may be the best macro lager I've had.

appearance. Has a yellow pilsner look with a 1 finger white head.
smell.- has a cheaper beer smell but the light wheat smell kind of makes me like it a little bit.
taste.- tastes like a heavier wheatier pilsner beer. is a bit heavier in the wheat taste than PBR.. Kind of tastes like a cheap thirty pack but really isn't that horrible. is a good session beer to get drunk on.
mouth feel- a little bit of carbonation but feels great on the tongue and mouth.
Overall this is a great beer to get drunk on. It is not a horrible thirty pack like a natural light but it is not a fantastic beer either. I do like Milwaukee's best ice better but this is god for the price and I'll buy it again because I definitely like it better than bud light.

I got this in a trade with a buddy of mine. (Abita Turbodog)
Pours a crystal clear straw yellow with a one finger head of white foam after a strong pour. Looks kind of fizzy. The head eventually drops to islands and a ring with decent lacing on the glass.
Aroma is on the grainy side, with definite DMS right there. In a beer like this, though, that is a common trait and kind of pleasant. Smells crisp and clean, with some light spicy hops way in the back.
Tastes like it smells; crisp, clean, light pilsner malts, and some residual sugar. For the style, this is pretty damn good. There is a light hop bitterness to this to balance the sweetness. Aftertaste is slightly grainy and pleasant.
Mouthfeel is crisp and tingly from carbonation. There is a sweetness here, but the beer is definitely crisp. The finish is crisp and on the dry side.
If you review this beer objectively, according to style, this is pretty damn good. No off flavors whatsoever, and one of the tastiest "macros" I've ever had. Maybe the fact it's an all barley malt beer has something to do with it, but if you're looking for a good macro, this would be the one.

Yikes. The fire-brewed disaster. Nearly clear, with a hint of yellow. Paper, metal, ash, and bum urine in the nose. Bizarre sour/metallic taste throughout (must be the fire-brewing). Just terrible. You are high if you think this beer is anywhere above a "D-"

New a guy back in the day that swore by this stuff, all he drank. I have a bar light up in my place of this stuff. Yellow beer, sudsy white head, more than your average adjunct, but it goes the way of the dodo right quick. Lager yeast, corn aroma, smelled worse.
Not much going on here, barely a malt and hop presence, balanced in terms of its sweetness. Maybe a little more bitter than most in its style. Seems like the stuff gets sold over brand loyalty moreso than uniqueness of the product, most comparable to Coors banquet beer I'd say.
A decent mass produced beer, dependable for some mass drinking where you don't want to bother wasting your $ and palate on high end brews after you're already trashed.
I wonder how many people referenced '30 pack of Stroh's, 30 pack of ho's' in their review?

Ah, the "fire brewed" beer of champions...
Light clear gold, slightly darker than straw. Refuge adjunct head of big, thin bubbles and no lace generation. Malty aroma, a little corn husk in character. Flavor profile is based on maltiness, a little Karo syrup non-descript, but fairly smooth and inoffensive. The finish falls down to me, not really hoppy, but a metallic bitterness that might actually indicate that but that's also emphasized by too much CO2 that tends to shove it back up your nasal passages. OK beer, not a favorite. Sorry, proc... ;>)

Stroh's in a can, why not let's do this...appears a golden clear bubbly quote, unquote beer look to it with large heavily carbonated bright white head floating above body dwindling at a moderate pace leaves some nice patches of sporadic lacing around my Duvel chalice...sorry Duvel. Aroma is heavy on the cooked veggie quality often described with these types of brews, mild corn sweetness something gives me the notion that there's just a touch of mild hop herbal quality going on which says alot when compared to most American light lagers. Taste not overly sweet definitely ridden with adjuncts but it's somewhat enjoyable combo of mild sweetness with corn and rice finish and a light herbal undertow of hop flavor not much bitterness of course but balanced and finishes with a touch of offness grainy/metallic combo...while the drinkability of this brew is solid all around "American" or "old timer" beer I'm proud to still be able to drink this over Bud, Miller, Coors just to be different, sometimes you get enjoyment with that as far as the mouthfeel goes it's light bodied heavy with the carbonation prepare to say excuse me honey...and yeah I know this one doesn't smell as good as my usual IPAs but come on our grandfathers drank a version of this beer.

Got this one out of a mystery beer machine at the bowling alley in Evansville, WI.
Took it down straight from the can. Not a ton of flavor, some corn and grain. Nothing overpowering. Light bodied beer with plenty of carbonation. Went down smooth. Could drink a lot of these without a problem.
