this is a beer base on an old recipe from Heilemans Brewery from the 70s I think. That is, it has more of the good ingredients and less adjuncts. It’s not bad for a macro. It goes great with a Coney Dog.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2008 An old school lager beer, definitely reminds me of old style. I know so many people who think this beer is god awful but it really isn’t bad for what it is, just a simple lager beer thats easy to drink alot of.

PorterPounder (5471) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2004
24 oz industrial sized can. Wet paper bag aroma, very pale light golden appearance, soapy white head. Has somewhat of a metallic flavor with a little bit of honey sweetness thrown in the back end. The can says that it is "Fully Kraeusened" - what the hell does that mean? Not much going on here - City Breweyr seems to be content with brewing second rate beers.

Not at all bad. This macro-ish lager does have a hint of flavor. I detected an almost spicey, clove & banana German Hefe flavor. The carbonation is rough as one might expect. A little sweet. Excellent for swillin’!

Straw color with a tall somewhat lasting white fluffy/fizzy head. Light herbal hops and grainy aroma {(very light)[very, very light]very, very, very light} . Light grape and malt flavors. Hints of bitterness. A touch to effervescent, but really not to bad.

I had this brew a couple years ago and know i rated it back then but maybe i’m wrong.This and the other lacrosse came to town briefly.I do remember it being fairly decent and more then worth having around but obviously noone in this town thought the same.So i will rerate this one when i can get more down in Minneapolis this summer.

I was expecting a not-so-good beer because the price was unbelievable - $11.99 for a 30 pack. I tried it because my regular brand was out of stock at the local beer store, and because its made in Wisconsin and it is not a macro brew. Not dissapointed - deffinately better than the MBs - light lager odor - slight hoppy flavor in finish, mild maltiness - moderately carbonated - overall a very good American lager. Maybe the Artesian well water contributes to its quality - I would deffinately pay more than $11.99 a 30 pack for this beer.

Not bad at all. Darker in color than Most American lagers with decent malt depth. Low hop presence. Crisp but carbonation. I like it.

Not at all a bad beer, kind of got a schmidt's thing going. Supposedly the new form of Old Style from La Crosse, Doesn't agree with me so much the next day
