It's a crisp beer that's way better when its cold than when it warms up. I think the cost is only justified if you're getting the bottles. because you don't see those Spring-top/flip-top/spring-top bottles anymore.

Best before 3/6/15.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, sugar, and slight grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable, but it gets noticeably worse as it warms up.

Serving type: bottle.

When I was first getting into real beer, I liked this a lot, maybe it's the bottle, but it always seemed just a little nicer than what was in my parents fridge. Revisiting it this weekend was uninspiring. It's heavier in malt than I remember, seemingly stale and under carbonated, and definitely light struck in its once distinguishing green glass. Skunks for sure, this may be a little older than optimal, but it's heavy as these lagers go, more sturdy and definitely with more malt flavor. I bet this is much better fresh at the source, but it doesn't travel real well in my experience. More filling than it should be, just quite unremarkable compared to my nostalgia.
