First tackled one of these enigmatic brews in the winter of '92 with BeerLad96 and BeerLad 97, and since, all three of us have sunk many a golden pint. Full bodied, smooth mouth-feel and a prevelant bitter taste. Best served icy cool.

Beer.

Pretty standard helles and not much to write about. It's a better version of an adjunct lager. I'd drink it again if offered, though. It's better from a can rather than a green bottle.
