Appearance – The beer was straw yellow with a big white head.

Smell – The nose closely resembles dried grains.

Taste – My initial reaction is to suggest this tastes like dried grass. The high level of carbonation quickly brushes away any sweetness, so the dry grains dominate. The dry aftertaste has the effect of actually making me want to drink more.

Mouthfeel – The very visible carbonation brushes away the taste quickly. The carbonation is downright aggressive.

Overall – It is beer. This adjunct lager runs on the dry side.

When I was a youngster, this is the beer my dad kept in the fridge. It was a good beer in the 80's. Fire-brewed. Served at Comiskey. It may have been the first 30-pack beer I ever saw. We drunked a ton of it. My dad shook his head when the stock disappeared, but he still bought more.
Picked some up recently to be nostalgic. Awful nasty crap. I'm pretty sure this beer has gone through some new ownerships along the way. It ain't the same.
You can't go back...

Not as bad as I had been anticipating. Here goes:

A: Clear yellow, OK head, very little lacing. Carbonation is also somewhat lacking. Meh.

S: Not as bad as other AAL's. Sure, there's corn, but there are also substantial amounts of grassy pilsner hops and barley. Good.

T: Follows the nose. More hops than most AAL's. Corn is actually not very robust relative to most AAL's. Not bad.

F: Smooth and crisp, but very watery.

O: OK beer. Would have over Bud, Miller, or Coors.

My first taste of beer was a Stroh's and it has a little more character than many of the other BMC beers and PBR but not a lot more. I use it for boiling brats.
