One of the better choices among BMC-type lagers. Amber/copper color; modest head, decent retention and lacing. Aroma is mostly generic maltiness but has a bit of bready toasted character. Very faint floral hops buried way underneath. Restrained sweetness.

Simple flavor offers no surprises, but it’s solid and drinkable without any “off” notes like many of the cheaper adjunct-filled macros. Basic toasted malt, caramel, light sweetness, muted hops, low bitterness, faint floral/grassy taste in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel and carbonation both right in the middle of the spectrum, short, fairly clean finish. Drinkable.

Again, better than most macro offerings. I was pleasantly surprised after not drinking this beer in years.

Light brown almost no head. Fizzy.

Cheap malt and a little bit of hop and earth.

This beer is still a guilty pleasure for me, as I love how it tastes. Malty with better balance than most mass produced beers.

Pretty good for macro! Craft is now my first love, but sometimes Dos E hits the spot!
