Interesting as mine says it is brewed in Erie PA. Maybe it has regional brewers because it is for the troops. I dont know why they just dont ship this shit directly to them. They could at least use it to disinfect or something...

willblake (2645) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2010
20101227 12oz bottle from Honeygo. Okay, I bought this one primarily for the ridiculous label and name, but you never know. Also, the bottle I have says that itís brewed by Coastal Brewing Co., Dover, DE. Hazy golden color with lingering off-white head. Aroma is tea with honey and lemon and some wheat sandwich bread. Mouthfeel is light and a bit slick with no bitterness or astringency. Very sweet, grainy, cooked cereal, and finishing cloying and, frankly, pretty bad.

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Draft: Tart vinegar and diacetyl. Clear amber, medium vanishing head. Surprising amount of body for a lager. Somewhat cloying flavor of cereal grains. Cane sugar finish, almost toothpaste minty. Dreadful stuff. I feel like Iím being "Rick Rolled" everytime I drink something from City. Perhaps City should become a verb meaning to obfuscate or hoodwink. City Brewery, ya got me again, dudes.

Arayaga2 (1769) - portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Gold with carbonation evident, and minimal white head. Aroma is slightly appley with mild fruity esters. Taste is the same, ending in milld melanoidins. Not bad, especially at $9/case

PorterPounder (5340) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour with a light white head. Bad, corny aroma with a hint of metal. Bad homebrew flavor with loads of mushy corn and alcohol. Mouthfeel is metallic and dull. Pass on this one

radagast83 (4409) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Bottle. Poured a golden color, small white head. Aroma is sweet. Flavor is pretty standard, but not harsh like so many other cheap "macro style" beers. If presented the choice of drinking this or the regular swill - Iíd hands down chose this one.

MrBunn (2438) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Bottle (although mine says "Brewed and bottled by Coastal Brewing Co. Dover, DE") Be all that as it may, this pours a golden color that doesnít match the Pale Lager category at all. The head is confusing, too. It isnít fizzy, but itís dense and foamy looking. Even the aromas are full and complex. Flavor is simply not pale lager... it is creamy and sweet... thick and almost chewy. Not a pale lager. No way.

nuplastikk (4268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2009
12oz bottle. Thin amber-orange color, minimal, though present, head. Sweet, macro aroma. There is no defense for this beer. Thin, potentially medium bodied I suppose, with a watery adjuncty sweetness. There is some spicy hop balance that quickly fades away, but overall this beer kind of sucks. Imperialist Offense Swill would be a better name.

Haha, this beer is both awesome and it actually helps out the troops. I drank this while building levels 4 and 4.5 of the beer room. It is an excellent session working mans beer that has some brass to it. America, Fuck ya.

Elwood (3019) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2009
Draft. I stopped by a local bar and had never heard of this beer, so I thought, what the heck! Why not try one! I should have known something was up when the bartender raised and eyebrow and jerked back her head in a "Are you serious?!?!?!" maneuver. It was a very pale yellow with a small, fluffy, white head. The first smell is what gave it way though. Definite adjunct riddled swill. The first taste made me ponder whether this was the worst beer Iíve ever tasted. It isnít (hence the 0.6) but itís pretty damn close (hence the 0.6). Taste is of corn, aluminum, and is a bitter watery mess. This stuff is dreadful. Best reserved for when the inlaws come over.
