This is a great American lager. I just picked some up today as Pabst is now marketing it more widely. I remember drinking this in the 80's and it seems to have the same great taste now as it did then. I wonder where this is brewed now since Miller-Coors owns this label after buying Pabst a few years back. There should be a lager beer drinking forum because it is obvious the beer snob crowd of micro-brews will not like this no matter how good and refreshing it is. Seriously it tastes good and is on par with Budweiser, Coors banquet, Pabst, and the like. Now I'm waiting for Hamms to make a comeback. Ill buy this again, but just so you know my favorite beer for the money now is Miller High Life.

Poured from 12 oz can into pint glass.
Appearance: pours a thick, frothy white head which gradually recedes leaving mild lacing. Clear, light golden appearance with plenty of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: white bread dough, yeast, maybe a little corn.
Mouthfeel: light bodied and fairly fizzy with a pleasant dry finish.
Flavor: lightly toasted barley malt, yeast roll, corn and some grassy hops in the finish.
Overall: pleasant and easy drinking. Well done to the style.

Don't know if this is 95% malt any more but they are using a can similar to it. No 95% malt label though. From a 24 ounce can labeled as "The Bigfoot" 24 oz.
Pours clear gold with a huge long lasting white head and plentiful lacing.
Smell is pungent spicey earthy hops with more than enough bready malt.
Taste is a bit too sweet for the OLY of memory but a tasty but less crisp than the beer of old. I think the older version used more of a Cascade hop flavor where this has some type of euro hop character now. More malt or malt + corn syrup than I like in a macro style beer.
Mouthfeel is medium and a slightly wet finish. Carbonation is robust or flaccid depending on how it is poured.
Over all if you want a good tasting malty macro beer for the hot weather give it a try. It was $1.79 for the 24 oz. can at a local gas station. Plus it has a shaded Bigfoot walking through the fir trees!

Pours translucent hay colored gold with a 1/4 inch white head that quickly fades to a thin ring on top and leaves faint spotty lace.
Smell is dominated by bready malt with just a hint of citrus hops and faint honey.
The flavors are somewhat muted and consist of biscuit-like malt and some faint citrus accents.
Texture is light bodied with high carbonation.
This beer makes no pretensions and has no delusions of grandeur. It is a refreshing, light bodied lager that is ideal for warm weather drinking sessions.
