It's my grandfather's beer. He added a shake of salt into every glass he got down at the tavern.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Look: It took a very hard pour to produce a decent head, and it didn't last for very long. Negligible lacing left behind. The color is a clear, pale gold- pretty much what you expect with this style.

Smell: Lightly sweet grain aroma, with a very slight touch of grassy hops.

Taste: Middle of the road grain and corn flavors, not overly sweet or dry. Finishes with a tight dryness. A very slight hint of grassy hop flavor lingers on the tongue. I started drinking it nearly ice cold, but it actually tastes better as it warms a bit. The sweetness of the grain and the dryness of the finish seem to be more balanced at higher temperatures.

Feel: Medium-bodied, with a bright and tingly carbonated bite.

Verdict: A fine enough no-frills lager. It doesn't leave a lasting impression, but it gets the job done- and I really like that you don't have to drink it at ice cold temperatures to enjoy it. It'd be perfect for a summer cookout.

I traveled to the wonderful city of St. Louis over the 4th of July weekend for a wedding and upon arriving me and some buddies decided to hit up a gas station in search of some local brews. We found this incredible gem for only $7 a 12 pack. You can even get a 4 pack of tallboys for only $2.97.

Needless to say this became the beer of the weekend and a hit at the bachelor party. It doesn't try to be anything more than it needs to be. A simple label that describes just what this is: Beer.
