Hazy Pilsner, bit if a failure on the hazy part but quite a nice beer. Slightly hoppy flavoured pilsner. 4/5 very good.
Sounds like Maryland's own infamously bad beer, National Bohemian.Victorian Bitter AKA VB

Aussies favorite beer by volume. Generic lager bad memories from the 90s. Gets a whopping 5.9 on beer advocate.

This beer has a terrible reputation. I haven't drunk it since the 90's. It doesn't even pretend to be good.
On the positives.
It's a lager
It looks like a lager.
It has an unpleasant smell. Taste was a bit of a surprise. I was expecting terrible but it managed to sneak in at barely drinkable. After two other beers though it might help. It's also 4.9% so it's a bit stronger than our typical 4% generic ales that manage to taste even worse.
This is not a good beer. On the plus side better than expected. I'm having it on a best case scenario. Half cut on other beers hot summer day.
Overall congrats Australia. Your crap beer is marginally better than our crap beer. I might be able to finish the can which is an improvement over out crap beer and it's stronger. 5/10 maybe drink if it's a hot day and the boss paid for it. Budweiser is a masterpiece by comparison.
I'm not the best judge as to that question as I thoroughly detest Budweiser. The only mass-produced beverage less palatable than warm Coke is warm Bud. I've had it (the only beer available on a two-month dig out in the middle of the Negev desert) and it put me off the alleged lager permanently.Is it worse than Bud? I kinda like Bud not much flavour or a bit watery but not unpleasant.

Natty Boh compares to PBR, which isn't surprising as Pabst Brewing now brews Natty. Both have the same enjoyment factor:
The first one goes down a little rough put if you muscle through it, the second one goes down significantly easier. Once you've pounded that one, the third can and all cans after that are very easy to drink. Which is good because it takes about 8 cans to get good and drunk on them.
Both pair well with burgers, especially greasy burgers.
