Like many aforementioned reviews, I was drawn to by the price. I expected shitty beer, but didn't get it. Nice honey color, initial head that dissipates quickly, goes down smooth. Best combo of price/flavor out there.

Moderately respectable coming from lacrosse, I figured it to be an old style product, but I came to realize that it was from the very nice city brewery. A lager, not great, but not shit.

Well, i think mine had a shelf life problem by the time it made its way down here to IL. But, for the price this is a great deal. I’ll bet its tastes great fresh off the tap up in LaCrosse. If i see it in bottles i will buy it again.

Basically, see hey_kevin’s review. This was WAY better than I expected it to be for $4 a six-pack (NE beerophiles, can you imagine anything ’micro’ going for so cheap? I love Wisconsin). Tastes relatively fresh, clean, reasonable body; what else do you want in a cheap lager? Will vie with Sleeman for my favorite of the type.

I almost feel guilty rating this as high as I am. Great swill. I need a cheap beer to fill in the cracks between drinking good beer. For the last couple months this has been it. $2.99 a six pack. It has brief hop flavor and a slightly ricey malt flavor but it goes easy yet maintains enough character to 1) not be overly adjucty and 2) maintain its enjoyability--enough so that it will maintain a place in my refrigerator for the at least the next 6 months.

For the sheer drinkablity and price of this glorious beer, you can’t pass on it, two thumbs UP!!!!!!

Brewed only five miles from the University of Wisconsin Lacrosse. Great aroma, flavor and appearance make this beer pretty good.

As far as I know this is the only brewery in the US that still kraeusens beer. This beer is even better than the old Old Style when it was brewed in Lacrosse before Pabst bought it out, moved it to Miller brewery in Milwaukee and ruined it.

Nice malty aroma with just a hint of hops. Beutiful golden appearance with a short head when poured from a bottle into a pint. Very clear with what appears to be above average carbonation. Good flavor, but no particular ingredient jumps out at me. Finishes with more of a barley flavor. Pleasant overall beer flavor. I’ve heard this beer called the ’New Old Style’ and I can see the resemblance.
