3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, solid lager here. Color is golden throughout, head is visable and forms a solid ring around the glass with an island hannging out in the middle. Taste is a bit hoppy, a bit pale, and a very easy. A gem for a moderate drinker. Easy on the pallate this brew can flow through mountains. I especially enjoyed the abundant golden color whihc prospered vivantally within the brew. Fresh and enjoyable, this is a beer for the minds.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
6 oz sampler on tap at their Camp Hill brew pub.
Light aroma of grains, corn, and a drop of citrus hops
Appearance: Pours a clear, light golden color with almost no head
Grainy flavor, light hops.Palate- light body, but it does have a crisp mouthfeel.
I was surprised by this offereing.
Of their 8 beer sampler that day _ I liked this the most - and I am not big on most lagers.
I would say that this is better than the much heralded Yuengling Lager.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a very thin white head that was gone after the first sip and left virtually no lace. The aroma is grainy malt and lager yeast. The flavor is malt that is just a bit husky and some very mild citrus. Mild bitterness at the finish. Uninteresting.

Pours a pale gold with a short white head. There is a pizza crust aroma, like PIzza Hut crust, buttery and bready. The flavor is kind of bland but the finish is clean. The beer is refreshing, but not that great.
