On-tap at Surfrider Café in Santa Cruz, CA. On to the beer:

There's isn't much life to the look of this beer. Pale maize color, little head or retention, and without the sparking carbonaiton. This is a rough around the edges type of lager. The hops have a dull bitterness and a green veggie flavor. Lemongrass notes all around, but especially in the aftertaste. Pale malt sweetness is not found easily. Very "raw", but in a bad way.

Even compared to the regular BMC's, American Standard fails to even meet that. I struggled to finish my pint, but at least it only cost me $2.
