Dont get fancy rating this. Its just a solid pitt tradition. Tastes better than bud miller coors.. whatever premium you wanna stack it against. Refreshing, slightly malty and has nvr given me a hangover the next day, unlike bud especially.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lager with a little bite at the end. A taste of Pittsburgh boy this one seems to have a lot of haters look at those low scores. Nothing fanct and not much in hops but it has some kind of bite at the end that is enjoyable. Drank a few throughout the past 12 years always tastes the same despite change in brewers . Its no Sam Adams lager or fancy micro but as a basic lager it works for me I would take it over a Bud or Miller any day Like Narragansett and Leinenkugel Original its a pretty decent lager. Picked up a single to enjoy will grab a 6 er sometime to mix in my beer assortment when I want a basic lager.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
A lager only a mother could love. It’s a local version of the mass produced "beer" that’s popular on college campuses. But it’s perfect for the ballpark when you’re offering some constructive criticism to your divisional rivals or for reminiscing with friends about the good ol’ days if those days had anything to do with the ’burg.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Opens with a big nose of corn adjunct. It’s a pretty decent pour, clear but awfully light yellow, and a scrum of bubbles on top. Taste is less than inspiring for the story of a struggling local brand. A bit sugary and fusel, I’m pretending there’s some kind of hop balance there, maybe even of the Noble variety, but it just doesn’t match up to even that little bit of imagination. Guess I should admit that those local brands that survived so long did so by imitating the cheapest aspect of the big brewers.

Pours a gown yellow with a white head and aroma of corn. Taste is awful, of corn and malt while very watery and light.

Beer at the ballpark. Typical lager. Liked the light better. Not awful though and better than the macros
