I don't know why this beer gets such a bad rap. It is by far the best tasting, mass produced beer in the USA. It has a fresh, clean, refreshing taste. On tap, this beer should out sell all the other mass produced lagers. I always have a twelve pack in my fridge - next to a few local IPAs and something new in a growler - and I find nothing strange about that.

Serving type: on-tap

Oh my what a beverage. You look at the can and you see words, many words. I like to pour it into a glass or a sink drain. When poured a rush of wild tobacco, dust, and titanium come directly to the nose. I like to wait as the head dissipates, which takes seconds, if not milliseconds. Then it's the time for a nice little sip. Oh my word, undernotes of pure sunbathed turtle shells in a stream, or a creek perhaps. Wonderful. I think the proper setting for this drink would be on a porch or prison. Highly recommended and would drink this everyday if I made much less money.
