Bürger Classic reminds me of the way beer used to taste years ago, although not quite as good as Schlitz or Bud. It's got a bit of a darker color, but beyond that it's average in appearance; and it smells like beer - generic 'beer' - but it's also fruity. There's a good bit of apple to it, and that carries over into the flavor. There are some hops, but they're minor. And it's not particularly bitter, just balanced, and leaning towards the sweet side at that. Overall it's a decent price-point beer. It's clean and drinkable, and the fruitiness gives it an interesting character.

The Burger Classic was a golden yellow beer with thin white head that did not lace. The smell and taste were grain and malt. The mouthfeel was lighter body with good carbonation. Overall this was a very good classic american pale lager and would drink it again.

12 oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a clear deep gold with a half finger white head than hangs around longer than on similar beer.

Aroma of sweet grain along with a touch of caramel and citrus hops.

The flavor has quite a bit going on for a beer of this style. Some sweet bready grain up front along with a bit of honey and caramel. Some faint citrus hops are there along with a light, drying bitterness. Finishes very clean.

For a cheap ($6.99/12 pack) beer this is excellent. A great lawnmower beer with plenty of flavor.

Burger Classic Beer has a thick, quickly-dissipating head, and a clear, golden appearance, with no lacing. The aroma is musty, semi-sweet, grainy, and stinging. Taste is of sweet grain, a touch of hop bitterness, and it does have some bite to it. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Burger Classic Beer finishes crisp, dry, and fairly refreshing. Overall, this is just an average, budget beer.

A- Pours a really clear pale yellow with a thin fizzy white head. Head is gone in a flash and leaves pretty much no lacing.

A- Smell is pretty basic corny, bready, and lemony hops.

T- This one reminds me when I go home and drink with my Dad. It tastes a lot like PBR. Sweet grains, bready, corn and a touch of citrus hops.

M- Light in body and higher in carbonation.

O- Easy to drink for sure, and very cheap.

This re-activated classic American lager pours a pale straw yellow, thick foamy head. Lacing nonexistent.

Nose says malty adjuncts. Nothing worth noting.

Taste is mild, watery, but somehow balanced. I get some corn, some yeast, and a hint of hops somewhere in there. Not a bad lighter American adjunct lager, and spot-on for price ($12.99/24pack). A cool alternative to the PBR/BMC mainstream.

Poured a semi transparent golden color with somequickly dissipating white head on it.

Smell is faint grains. Not a great aroma.

Taste is kinda blah. Ok not terrible. Basic lager taste.

Mouthfeel is light. Goes down quick.

Overall an ok beer. Not great but it's drinkable.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is sweet, malty. Taste is also heavy on malts, some grains and a bit of sweetness, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent brew, great on a hot day.

Golden beer with a big, sudsy head. Aromas of musty, sweet vegetables. Tastes sweet and of adjuncts. A lot smoother than many other adjunct lagers. Goes down easy. Comes in convenient 12-ounce cans, which are only about $0.50 each. You can earn some locavore cred if you're into that sort of thing, except you really can't because it's not even made in Cincy anymore.
