3.2/5 rDev -9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: 12 oz brown long neck bottle with a purchase before date on the side of the label.
Appearance: Inviting fresh looking head, bubbly and frothy just the way I like it. Bright copper colour, with a brilliant clarity.
Smell: Clean with a meek aroma. Light toasted grain, hint of sweetness and bread with a very faint hop aroma.
Taste: Clean and crisp with a moderate body, toasted flavours are a bit dull but still add to the palate. Graininess is laid back with a quick flash of sweetness then the hops roll in with a balanced bitterness and faint flashes of oily and herbal flavour. Grain flavours border on husky in the drying finish and become a tad bothersome.
Notes: A run of the mill amber lager, flavours are placid though sometimes plain is good. Its just and easy drinking brew, nothing special.
Serving type: bottle

Pint on tap at John Henry's in Long Beach, N.Y.
Appearance: It's an amber/copper color with heavy carbonation and a half-inch white head that recedes swiftly.
Aroma: Bready malts are up front, with some piny hops and caramel malts. Also, unsurprisingly, there's a note of buttery toast. Some grassiness, too.
Taste: Tasty. Really a perfect all-seasons lager. Smooth, crisp and refreshing, with enough complexity to keep you interested. Hop bitterness and alcohol are muted, while malts are very forward. Pretty much a perfect American lager. I had this alongside a terrific veggie burger, fries and a pickle and practically felt like singing God Bless America; tied the whole thing together in star-spangled glory.
Mouthfeel: The amount of body is spot-on. Some density, but far from heavy.
Overall: Excellent. A lager for folks who usually get bored by lagers. Also a lager for people who love lagers. There's everything to like about this, and no discernible flaws. Let's see what happens after the Anheuser-Busch acquisition.
Serving type: on-tap

Served in a pint glass at Estelle's in Boston.
Appearance: This beer had a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Toasted, nutty, caramel malts, lager yeast, and Noble hops.
Taste: Nice toasted malts, nutty, grassy hops, caramel malts, and a little bitterness in the rear.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, chewy, light to medium bodied, low to medium carbonation, and quite enjoyable.
Overall: Pretty solid lager. I haven't had it in a while and think it has gotten better than when I had it a few years ago.
Serving type: on-tap
