Sometimes we get so caught up in looking for the next great beer we forget to slow down and smell the roses. Sometimes its OK to drink an "ordinary" beer.
Can poured into a pint glass. Best by Aug, 6th of 2012.
A- Pours an extremely clear light colored straw yellow with 2 fingers of fizzy white head that quickly goes away leaving no lacing whatsoever.
S- Very litte in the aroma dept. Kinda yeasty, bready, some canned corn.
T- Taste is crisp, probably from the adjuncts in it, but theres something about it that is refreshing on hot summer days.
M- Thicker than most American Adjunct Lagers. Not near as high carbonation as some either.
O- If you want an easy drinker that is around 8 bucks for a 12 pack, and not the Macro Light Lagers that everybody else buys. Pick this up. Like I said before, sometimes it's OK to drink "ordinary" or "regular" beer.

One of the little delights in my life: driving around the Belleville area, the original home of Stag, and seeing the large billboards that exclaim Stag is 'not for beginners'. And being one of the more diabetic-friendly beers, it certainly is for people who spent their entire lives drinking and eating midwestern food.
Pours a faint yellow with lots of fizz- a 3 finger white head that recedes about as quickly as it forms. Nose gives off that typical adjunct character- stale malt, touch of lemon and touch of booze- while the light-bodied palate showcases a flavorless interplay of dry grain and bread crust flavors. There's a faint corn-like sweetness and a big carbonation, while the bitterness comes in on the finish bring a bit of booziness and leaving a bit of dryness and juiciness.
There are beers out there that, no matter how bad, still leave you with the impressions of your first few years drinking, forming friendships that last a lifetime yada yada blah blah. For some people, its Bud. Could be PBR. I don't give a shit. For me, it's Stag. This is a matter of hometown pride, and this beer can't get any better.
