3.71/5 rDev +22.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Had this in a bottle, poured into a pilsner glass awhile back and enjoyed it.
Stag used to have a bad reputation around these parts when I was a kid. But I needed a cheap lawnmower beer, and this caught my eye. Glad it did !!!
Appearance is exactly what you expect from an AAL. Pale yellow, with little lacing on my glass.
Smell was not as offensive as most AALs. Lacked the chemical smell, for one. Pleasant.
Suprisingly fresh taste. Not as corny as PBR or Schlitz. Nice finish, as long as it stayed cool. Very clean for the style.
Mouthfeel fits the style. Not too fizzy. Not too slick. It didn't get lost in the carbonation like so many other AALs. Bud comes to mind... By the time the fizz leaves, there's nothing left to enjoy.
Over all, this and PBR make the top of my lawnmower list. Not my favorite by any means, but when rated to style, it holds its own very well. $7.00 for 12 bottles doesn't hurt much either !!!!

2.7/5 rDev -10.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75
Appearance - had mine in the can, but I can guess what the color would be.
Smell - It smells really sweet.
Taste - the typical AAL taste, with that weird corn/rice aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - A decent body and carbonation.
Overall - this beer taste just like PBR, without that sweet taste.

Enjoyed in a can, you're not supposed to pour Stag into a glass. Best by 07/22/2013.
A: Awesome gold can with a retro feel. "Golden quality since 1851" Retro in a manly way.
S: Malt, corn, grassy hops.
T: Very malt forward for an AAL. Much more of a malt presence than just about any I've had. No metallic or corny off-flavors. Clean malt flavor with a bit of corn syrup and a light, grassy hops finish. Great for the style.
M: Light-bodied but not watery. A tang of carbonation and just a slight hops bitterness.
O: A very solid AAL. This was going to be my new go-to 'cheap' beer, but I'm being told it's not going to be distributed in my area much longer. Will have to pick some up whenever I'm in St. Louis or pay a premium to get it from someone who may still be stocking it here in KC.
