Poured 40 degree Fahrenheit into a Stella stemglass. No born date.

Pours a lucid straw color with a fizzy bright white head that falls out quickly. No lacing to speak of.

Smells of some corn and very faint hops.

Taste is really close to non-existent. Corn and a tough of hops.

Mouthfeel is a smooth, even, if highly effervescent spreading over the palate. Actually enjoyable.

Overall, tasteless but smooth. Very tolerable.

About time I review a Baltimore classic...err, make that a Pabst subsidiary disguised as a Baltimore classic, but who's paying attention to those kind of details? Poured into a generic glass, and served ice cold.

A: The cynical bastard in me says it's urine colored, but I'm not feeling like that tonight, so I'll say it has a nearly crystal-clear, light straw color. The head on this started strong like most macro lagers, and (due to its frosty temp, mayhaps?) retains surprisingly well.

S: Cooked corn, biscuit, and some (strange) funkiness. Smells like Baltimore, to be honest.

T: This actually has some flavor to it, and it's not unpleasant, either. It's corn-based, so it features some graininess with just a ping of sweetness. This is what Corona Extra should have been; pleasant, mindless refreshment.

M: IT'S NOT OVER CARBONATED. This criteria is VERY important. Many a macro lager has been ruined by either artificial off flavors, oppressive levels of carbonation, or both. It's high, to be sure, but it's manageable. Otherwise, the feel is nothing special. Goes down smooth like water.

O: Puts typical BMC crap to shame, and I even prefer it to certain craft beers, as well. Is it a great beer? Nope. Is it a great beer on a budget? YES. The fact that it's usually a little cheaper than Budweiser is just gravy.

But you know the deal - it's a macro lager, so drink it straight from the can, as frosty cold as possible, without over analyzing it.

I love the Boh, plain and simple! Natty Boh, please don't go, I'll drive to and fro, so you can go, into my stomach below! A wonderful beverage from America's past that has surpassed potential extinction and emerged unscathed to "The Bright Side."

Ahhh Natty Boh - my Hometown Hero.

Enjoyed this out of a pint glass at home in Baltimore, MD.

A: Golden with a thin white head that quickly clears.

S: Not much aroma here. Faint scent of grains and malt.

T: Corn, malt, and mild hops.

M: Medium carbonation, not too bad, not too good

O: Refreshing yet gritty, it's Baltimore in a can. Nuff said.
