If I'm feeling like just an american lager that's easy to drink, I'm going with PBR over Bud, Miller Lite, or (most certainly) Coors. This pours a straw yellow with a slight foamy head. No lacing on the glass. Smell is grainy, hints of corn and barley. Carbonation is just right to make this a really drinkable beer to have when washing down wings or a burger. Never really gave much thought to this beer prior to just a few weeks ago, but now glad I have a new "basic" beer to get when I'm getting a little burned out on deciding among different craft beers.

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.
