Served in mug, beer pours a very clear amber color. Lots of carbonation. Decent head that dissipates quickly into white lacing ring.

Bit of a breaddy smell.

Clean and refreshing taste, slightly sweet but not too much going on here.

Very easy drinking and sessionable. Goes down very smooth, no aftertaste.

It’s a quality lager. It’s in a middle ground where it’s not necessarily fair to put against micro crafts, but it’s not a typical watered down macro either. For the price, it’s worthwhile for the craft drinker that wants to have a good fridge stocker for parties and guests. Good overall lager.

A grain front that goes into a bitter finish. An original craft beer before craft beer was a thing.

This is my go to beer as it is fairly cheap. I prefer it in bottles as it seems to be slightly more bitter this way. Anyone else with that experience? Maybe it’s just slightly skunked haha. It’s interesting enough and goes well with most foods. Best beer for the money here in northern Alabama. Everything about this beer is solid from the amber color to just how refreshing it is in a hot day.
