LilBeerDoctor (3453) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear yellow with a thick head. Aroma of sweet malt, lemon, strawberry, light fruits. Flavor of sweet malt and light fruits. Not too sweet though- it’s more fruity than sweet. A lot better than I expected as it has more body and flavor than your typical "premium lager." 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

zach8270 (3472) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2012
(draft @ Hofbrauhaus Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh, PA) Clear amber pour with a thick white head. Subtle malty aroma with a very light and dry hop note. Smooth and sweet flavor at the start. Lots of caramel malts mixing with a very light dryness and finishing off with a lightly bitter aftertaste. Smooth and drinkable.

DiarmaidBHK (3393) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Draft at Hofbrau haus. Not as off-putting as the light. Not much on the nose or tongue. Crisp and clean and perfectly inoffensive.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Dark yellow with a white cover. Aroma is sweet malts, some light hay, grass. Taste is on the sweet side again, bready, would like a touch more hops for balance, but it is good enough to drink by the liter.

LetsGoState (585) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Appearance is golden with a medium white head. Aroma is a bland lager. Taste is typical lager malts with minimal character. Overall it isn’t bad and is very drinkable, which is almost perfect for the atmosphere.
