Theres something about this beer that gets me excited. Maybe its the clear or short neck of the bottle. Its my go to at liquor stores if i just want to go home and relax. I can't say theres anything I dislike about this beer. The clear bottle is a risk for obvious reasons but its not gonna be a problem for most people unless you for some reason store your beer outside. In that case enjoy your skunked beer. In all seriousness its a classic beer with a taste many will enjoy.

Pretty basic but good. Good flavor and very easy to drink. Nothing particularly interesting. Good to keep around at home for guests.

It's easy to find in stores and restaurants.

I have enjoyed this beer for years now. It is definitely different from most beers that you find that are popular. Most beers are lagers and this is a great tasting ale. It has little bit of hoppiness but is great on the palette. It has more of a malt flaover rather than hops. This is one of my go to beers all the time.

This is great because it has the amount of carbohydrates listed on the bottle. Diabetics everywhere rejoice

Hasn’t been the same since they altered the recipe in 2016. (They removed the caramel color and replaced it with something else and it tastes much more mediocre now)
