Shipman (48) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2003
Not a bad cheap beer. An old school approach to beer taste. A very good college beer. Higher end of the cheap beer scale.

Location: 16 oz purchased at PNC park Appearance: Light golden. fizzy white head of white bubbles Nose: crisp light cracker malt. Sharp hay hops. Taste: Lightly sweet with a faint hop bitterness Body: thin and fluid. Watery. Parting thoughts: A typical pale yellow boring lager beer. had to, though I was in Pittsburgh.

beerme31 (645) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle. Aroma of hay, grass. Poured clear golden thin white head. Medium sweet taste. Very thin texture and very light watery body. Finishes with light sweetness and hints of hop. Very clean finish. Overall not much too it, even for a pale lager.

Cybercat (5169) - Georgia, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Pours clear light golden with a thick and frothy eggshell head that says hello and quickly exits. Aroma is crisp and malty, typical and uninspiring. Typical flavor presents malty and weak fruity tones. Mouthfeel lacks fizz and body, but at least it is distinguishable from water. Well, it’s another rating.

Worsenma (74) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2015
It is what it is. Not very good at all. At least it's not made in steel cans anymore. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pours golden, white fizzy head. Typical adjunct pittsburgh piss. Metal, corn, slightly sweet, light body.

vomit (247) - Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Scuzz Twittly said it best when he crooned: "Iron City is shitty and the town smells like a turd/when you see black and gold just flip em the bird". It’s true. and who am I to disagree with Scuzz? No muy amigo, avoid this, like you avoid sobriety. Head to the warm loving embrace of Blatz....which is ALL that is right in this world. It is what it is....and shall be....or not.

alobar (3560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Pours a transparent straw yellow color with a creamy white head. Aroma of corn, bread, and not much else. Corn malt flavor with some skunk, and grain. Meh, but it could have been so much worse.

bth122 (1499) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2014
From a can. Clear golden color with small head. Aroma of some grain and corn. Tastes like steel city and Mon river water. Not bad but not good. Average carbonation. Slight metal. Gotta support the Yinzer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can - Light and watery taste. A slight bite but not from hops. More malt flavor but not sweet either.
