I can get this canned, bottled, or on tap. This review is for the tap variety. I drank a big mug at the Outback steakhouse in El Cajon. Pairs very nicely with their prime rib. The aroma was barely detectable due to the beer being served to cold and in a frozen mug. What nose there was showed some earthy biscuits and sweet malts. Color was a clear golden-brass color with large foamy white head. The head showed some lacing and lasted a log while. Flavors of yeast, biscuit, light malts and cedar. mouthfeel was a bit thin and watery. Anti-climatic finish with mild hops that leaves you wanting a big steak (so its a good thing they serve this at a steakhouse!). Overall: Recommended with conditions and reservations.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours with exceptional clarity. Light gold with lots of lager bubbles wafting toward the top to meet a fat soapy head of white foam that had better retention that I thought It might. Nose is crisp with only a slight bit of apple, sweet grain and a bright hops character. A bit of lemon from those pride of ringwood hops as it warms. Taste follows the nose all the way. The malt stays in the background until it warms and brings a light dry cracker. The apple is thin and delicious adding something cheerful and crisp. The carbonation has a small bite and the yeast imparts a bit of sourness to really round out this beer. Even though the middle is quite dry and palate cleansing, this beer finishes off dry and with a bit of sweet lemon and is very delicious. I would have this again.

Big ol' fluffy white head with stickage atop a pale golden brew. Looks like a nice glass of beer. No complaints here.
Grassy pilsner malts with a sprite hop presence. Surprisingly, pretty clean. Well-lagered. A slight musty Euro malt note that fades. Not bad.
Pretty clean again. Slight minty hop character that doesn't pair too badly with musty grassiness, slight mineral qualities, and watery grain. Finished gruff and spiny with adjunct sweetness hidden behind a note of fair booze.
Lots and lots of carbonation present. The body is weak, but it's a quenching drink. Booze presence is a little annoying.
Fosters is okay. I would order one when fresh, if left to macro options only.
