Ok, this won’t get stellar numbers, but for the price this stuff is as good as Schlitz. I was worried when I saw it was brewed at City (is that still true?). So it is fizzy yellow stuff, but a solid all malt type flavor, decent hoppiness to balance it away from being terribly sweet. I drank three pretty quickly and was still happy when the bill came.

You could probably drink a dozen of these....but why? I mean you might as well pound 24 or 30 Blatz. Granted this junk could probably throw you under the bus with alacrity.....but Blatz will do the same for half the price. Duquesne Pilsner! You irrascible liquid of mayhem, I say to you: NEVER AGAIN. Drink a Blatz today...your liver will thank me tonight.

(bottle - 12 oz) Pale gold pour with a white head. Light hop and grass aroma with some sweetness. Flavor is crisp and lightly sweet. Finishes mild. Really refreshing on a hot day.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Super light yellow, but really barely any color at all. Virtually no head at all either -- what little there is fades quickly. This drinks with a fairly simple construct ... light corny malt, but even-keeled ... light lager-ish hop finish. Clean, crisp, no offensive twists. But nothing more, nothing less than a good ol’ American beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Transfer from BA review on 3-19-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a light to medium golden color with a billowy white head that faded very fast leaving little to no lacing.
Smell – The smell is mainly corn in nature, with just the slightest bit of citrus.
Taste – The taste is very similar to the smell. Mainly semi-sweet corn malt overall, but with a very slight citrus flavor detected at the end, which when mixed with the corn flavor leave a somewhat unpleasant taste in the mouth.
Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is light and somewhat watery with a higher level of carbonation.
Overall – Not really a great brew. Nothing about it is all that good and its likely one to pass over in the beer aisle.

Pours straw yellow. Little head, no lacing. Aroma of cereal grains. Tastes, again of cereal grains, very slight bitterness, Light body with moderate carbonization. Finishes a little sugary sweet. Not enough hops to be a pilsner but a little better than TV beers.

Bottle at SoHo, in Pittsburgh. Pours a clear amber colour with a thin white head. Light and watery. Will be easily forgotten.

GREAT BEER A MUST HAVE PITTSBURGH STAPLE. THE BEER TASTES LIKE ICE CREAM ON DRAFT AND MAKES ME WANT ANOTHER. THE LABEL IS VERY CREATIVE AND THE PALATE IS GREAT

Little aroma, cardboard. Clear yellow, headless. Cane sugar, sweet, fusel alcohol. I wasn’t paying attention to the label and mistook it for craft. It happens.

Not too bad for a pilsner but definitely not something I would choose to drink for taste.
