COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American standard lager originally brewed by Falls City Brewing of Louisville, Kentucky. Marketed extensively in Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee and some southern states. Later brewed by Heileman, Evansville and now Pittsburgh Brewing Co. A famous old regional brand still hanging on.

Note: The brand, though not the beer was revived by a Louisville, KY contract brewer "Falls City Brewing" in mid-2010 and new ratings should be entered there.

Many young folks in the Louisville/Falls Cities area learned to drink beer with "Feel Silly." The original version poured light and smooth w/ a big head, went down a little metallic, and finished like one had just drunk out of the Ohio River. But you wanted another one anyway. Made a man feel like a man! The new stuff tastes better, but the ambience just ainít the same. Iron City, Falls City, great memories!

Headbanger (3300) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes-Brewed by Evansville Brewing Co.)-Pours a clear golden with a decent sized white head. Aroma of corn, grains, and slight hops. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew was rather tasty as I was expecting the worse.

7/20/2013: Falls City Original Pale Ale - This is definitely not your typically macro-style lager and should be at least tried by those who like that kind of beer. Why? Well, this is a really light English-style Pale Ale. Iíd say that it has a similar appearance to the macro lagers and a similar carbonation level and mouthfeel, but it has some decent flavor with just a bit more hops showing through. Falls City describes this offering as "full-bodied and well-balanced with a nice finish. It is less hoppy than typical American Pale Ales." Itís definitely light since itís meant to be a session beer and while the aroma doesnít present much, the flavor is dry (almost like that oxidized cardboard flavor) biscuity/bready maltiness that works well with the mild herbal hops. Iíd call this a light English Pale Ale, and itís definitely clean and sessionable. Itís also a refreshing palate cleanser. Presented with this as an option, I wouldnít hesistate to have a pint.

Draught (sample) at Old Chicago in Lexington, KY. Rating #31 for this beer.

KombatAle (116) - New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 19, 2013
This canned brew poured a medium sized head of finely sized white colored foamy mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a carbonated transparent straw yellow colored body and a poor lacing. The aroma was mildly astringent with a malt hop base. The mouth feel was mediumly tingly from start to finish with a crisp thin flavor of mild malts and hops in the finish. The flavor was the same with a mild malt hop crisp clean note.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2013 Mercifully discontinued. Anyone living in Louisville under the age of 80 referred to this beer as "Falls Shitty". Donít confuse this with the new Falls City Pale Ale.

RSRIZZO (1852) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Had this beer on 5/31/2000. Aroma is a sweet and somewhat sour malt scent. Carbonation is low as well as the head. Color is a pale gold with a ton of shit floating around that looks like some one put a pinch of chew in it. Taste is thin and watery light. Starting with light body it goes down with a sour odd taste. Finish is a sweet malt flavor that reminds me of a bad import. Overall this is one of the worst beers I have ever had.

In the can. Picked up a 6 of these in Louisville for nostalgia purposes. The cool thing was that they are still packaged with the plastic rings and not sold exclusively inside a cardboard box. This fizzy pale yellow white poofy headed beer is not as sweet as PBR or Olympia, but not as grainy as a BMC product. Iím pleased that Louisville still has its hometown beer, even if it needs to be brewed in a Yankee land. When will someone make Storz or Metz again for the thirsty people of Omaha?
