Pours a golden-amber color (guess they knew what they were doing by writing "GOLDEN AMBER LAGER" on the bottle!), nice head for the style, decent lacing, moderately carbonated. Aroma - roasty toasty bready notes, lightly sweet, faint hops, maybe some faint green apple. Taste - follows nose perfectly. Finishes crisp with no aftertaste. No alcohol at all at 6%. Fantastic.

This is an outstanding lager. I really don't know what all of these people who give terrible reviews of this beer are expecting. I've read several, so it's not like I'm just ranting without reason. It truly appears they either don't know what they're talking about, simply hate lagers and/or large brewers, or just are making things up to suit the terrible rating they give.

Whatever the case, it's a bit sad. Wonderful beer, would recommend to all.

The only reason I got this was because I had a very limited selection and I didn't want to buy a sugary cheap cider or wine cooler. Brewed a month and a half ago and poured into a goblet.

Look: Crystal clear amber with a quickly diminishing white head and carbonation that swirls upwards as if trying to escape.

Smell: Mild fruity yeast and cracker with a touch of alcohol.

Taste: Exactly mimics the nose with cracker malt, mild fruity yeast, and a tiny bit of alcohol.

Feel: Very crisp and dry at the end. Lots of carbonation.

Overall: This is a Budweiser variety, need I say more? It's cheaply made and I wouldn't be surprised if the little malt that there is were malt extract. You might as well get Fat Tire if you are looking for a mild flavor such as this, even though this is an amber lager and not an amber ale. Oh, and not to mention Fat Tire is brewed by one of the best breweries ever.

Good Amber color. Smooth taste with strong lager finish. Nice compliment to Bud stable.
