served at about 45 degrees or so...poured into a standard pint glass. looks thin, has a white topped head that vanishes without a trace after a minute or 2. brew is golden in color. smells like malts and a good touch of corn. if hops are there they are mild at best. tastes quite sweet (in a corny, malty way), a bit of hops are present but they come to the party late and leave early. very clean finish, just a bit of lingering sweetness. feels thin but not as thin as many other adjunct lagers out there. carbonation is ok. i thought it could have used a bit more this one's just a bit flattish. not much carbonation bite. overall this beer delivers exactly what you'd hope from an adjunct. drinkability is just fine, the taste is not objectionable (or pretentious) and it doesn't get noticeably skunky as it warms up a bit like so many others in this variety. a good example of a very average, drinkable, and likeable cheap american lager.

Surprisingly full of character, and not like other American lagers. Much better - and plenty of history to boot ! I love the retro renewal - goes great with a sandwich, hot dog, at the ball park, picnic, Sunday afternoon on the driveway, whatever. Great stuff!

Ok. This is not a top shelf beer. This stuff is cheap, corn-heavy adjunct lager. That being said, it's dang tasty when it's hot out, has a little more ABV than your run of the mill 3.2, and I love that when I bust one out, very few people swarm around to get their hands on one, making it an even better value! Pale yellow in color, It's got enough malty body to separate it from the miller/coors/bud barley pop, while still being easy to drink in quantity. No real discernible hoppiness, especially compared to my standard IPA/DIPA fare. Refreshing, but not a light beer. Taken for what it is, I believe it to be a great beer, when limited to class-comparison. I'm drinking one right now, as it's 85, sunny, and I'm grilling. Boom.
