Honestly not bad for what it is. Maybe I'm biased as a N'anglander. Has a bit of honey in the flavor and finish. Definitely on the sweeter side for a lager. Finally reviewing this after finding it on-tap at Portside on NAS Pensacola!

Wanted to try this one for a while. Just showed up within the last few years here. I was not disappointed or altogether impressed, but I do like this beer.

Purchased a 12 pack for $7.99 from a local beer/wine store. I could not find a date on the bottom of the can. The graphics on the side was a retro design with 1975 in bold letters. Cracked open the can and poured it into a mug. It poured a fizzy yellow with a decent head. The aroma was faint but then again my sinuses have been acting up. Bubbles streamed up the sides so evidence of carbonation. The taste which is the most important part of any review was crisp and clean. Mouth feel was smooth and refreshing. Over all a good beer. I would buy this again and keep at least a few six-packs stocked in the cooler and/or pantry.

As a new englander, this is my usual go to inexpensive beer. A tasty lager that is not overpowering nor exorbitantly weak either. Definitely to my tastes. I do recommend trying it out if you have not and if it is available in your area. Even if it is not to your liking the price is very reasonable so there is not much of a loss in the wallet and.

This is probably my favorite mainstream American lager. It has much more flavor than other watery macro beers. Price is decent ($6/6-pack of 16oz cans).

Got it because I watched Jaws one night and couldn't resist the throwback can. It's okay. Show me the way to go home so we can get a bigger boat.
