I like everything about this beer except the way it tastes. Bottle or can appearance is in my top three for all time. Made in Wisconsin, originally, check. My dad drank it at the cabin, also in Wisconsin, when I was growing up. It just doesn't tast that good. I hate to admit it but its true. It is a decent lager if you don't have too many other options.

Nevertheless...PBR me ASAP !

This is a good cheap beer if you are on a tight budget and want a good clean american lager. The taste is better than your everyday bud light or natty.

It pours a mid yellow with a thin head.
The taste is a mild lager taste.
Overall this is a really good beer for the price.

I honestly like this beer, as it seems to me as a classic American style lager, with a fairly crisp taste that takes me back to my days in college. Furthermore it is very refreshing as and is a good casual beer for a good price. It also had a light clean feel whilst drinking.

A: Clear, light golden with a thin white head that forms an dissipates quickly. Active bubbles abound

S: Light cooked grains and a trace of malt sweetness.

T: Corn, malt, and almost no hops.

M: Thin, watery, medium carbonation.

O: This is not a beer I would choose to drink. However, it is better that Bud, MGD, "Beast" and Miller.
