Notes: Brewing in the desert, we realize sometimes you just want a light, refreshing beer. American Flyer was created to quench that thirst. We take 2-Row barley and Saaz hops and ferment it with our house yeast to create a beer that is simply delicious.

3.78/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz can

Pours mostly clear golden, white film for a head.

Aroma is of sweet bread and cereal malts.

Flavor is a mix of sweet bready malts and dry grassy malts. Mild dry hop finish.

Medium body, tingly carbonation on the tongue.

Nice clean, dry basic lager. The flavor is good. Drinks easy. Very refreshing. Would have an ice cold one regularly in the Nevada heat

Having this here in Vegas. Curt review. Nice straw color with thick quick dissipating foam. Caramel and malt aromas. Light biiterness and carbonation. Overall tasty, crisp and refreshing.

Light straw colored body; decent white head. Very nice light cereal grain aroma; bread crust. Light malt flavor with a nice hop bitterness counterbalance. Light body; crisp and dry.

A solid pilsner beer, light and crisp with a mild, gentle flavor that satisfies.

This one pours a crystal clear gold from a 12 oz. can with a soapy one finger of head that leaves a nice lacing down the glass.

The smell is just a beer smell of some malts hops and that bread note. Nothing jumping out here.

The taste is clean and crisp lager with no fillers! Very clean water and nice hops coming through with a perfect tinge of that bitterness for a beautiful lager.

Mouth feel is clean and light with a wet and refreshing taste.

Overall a spot on lager beer! I really did not expect to get my hair blown back by a simple lager but these guys fooled me. This beer makes all other adjunct lagers pee in their collective ADJUNCT pants!

A nice and full malty lager. Soft bitterness with a touch of sourness. Quite creamy and probably a little heavier than most.. Aroma was hard to reach and a little indistinct. A tad cloudy but lots of lacing of a really white head.
This is a quite solid lager.
