May be the worst beer I have ever had along with Schlitz, Piels, Lost Lake, etc. They may actually be better. This beer is so harsh and bitter i choked down less than half a can. Not worthy of even the grittiest steel worker.

In my opinion this is one of the best mass produced American beers. It does not come close to holding it’s own against a good craft brew or a specialty beer but it sure beats Bud or Miller.

I wanted badly to like it. I used to collect the cans when I was a kid. I even drank it in Pittsburgh to get the whole ’atmosphere’ thing going. And it is bad. Very, very bad. And I think old Milwaukee is ok so you can figure how bad I think this stuff is. I gave it one extra fraction of a point for being sort of cool.

Not a very good beer, IC Light is much better.

Nothing special at all, in fact, pretty darn bad. Extremely surprised that it has such a high rating. The several perfect and near perfect ratings clustered around 6-17-01 seem highly suspicious (esp. as they were mostly entered by people who rated only 1 or 2 Pittsburgh beers in the database and put as their location only ’USA’) and may be the act of one lone soul trying to sustain Pittsburgh pride. Just trying to keep it fair. Well, at least they got the Steelers. This beer is pretty lousy overall--even for a macro.
