It pours clear golden/copper in color, big white head with good lacing. Flavor is straw, sweet malty. very light grass hop. Somewhat watery texture, light body. This has a bready aftertaste alot like PBR. light dry finish. As with most pilsners it was went down easy. Nothing real fancy or exciting about this beer.

This is a contract brew made by MBC for the theoretical "Fletcher Street Brewing Company, LCC", which doesn't exist in Alpena, Michigan.

Pours out to a clear (i.e-filtered) pale golden, forming a tall, poofy white head with excellent retention and nice lacing. Carbonation is medium-strong with spiral streamers. Domestic Lager aroma with some dry malts and not so spicy hops, wet grass, touches of sulfur and macro adjunct. Mouthfeel is initially spritzy with a light body. Doesn't taste to good, honestly. There is a slight and very brief notion of hops in the beginning, followed by the taste of sweet corn and some pale malts which are unbalanced by any hop bitterness. Not much better than a warm Stroh's.

Not recommended. This is one step above most macro swill. Actually, I would take an ice-cold Budweiser Lite over this any day. A black mark on the otherwise good reputation of Michigan Brewing Company. Down the drain it goes.
