2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This was latrobe brewings answer to Yuengling Lager for local market back before AB bought them out. The beer poured a medium amber color with a large yellow-white head. The aroma was tangy mildly industrial brew with a faint sweetness. The flavor was tangy and a bit malty with a faint off fruitiness underneath. Medium finish and body. Nothing special.

Bottle. Pours light amber with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malts and grain. Flavor is slightly thin, sweet up-front, grain, but smooth and drinkable.

Pretty blah, nothing really to note-nothing bad, nothing good. I’d only get it if it were cheap.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2005 had $1.00 bottles of this at a bar I went too. i guess you get what you pay for. no just joking it actually wasn’t all that bad. Ive had worse lagers. My main gripe was that it was a little watery. after a few started to get a bad taste in my mouth.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) Latrobe, huh? I assumed this would be pretty bad, but pouring this beer, this seems to have some promise. Color is nice, kind of a bright amber, and the off-white head is large and pillowy. Retention is decent, though partially supported by quite a large contingent of carbonation bubbles rising rapidly through the beer. The aroma is mostly sweet and caramely, not great, not complex or interesting, but hey, it could be a lot worse. Tasting the beer, it starts off moderately sweet and caramely, but goes downhill quickly. The finish has this odd sourness and a gentle bitterness that clash with the sweet caramel for dominance, and the result is a pretty bad aftertaste. Kind of tastes like a cheap honey beer. Somewhat thin body, but not what I’d call watery. Lacing is actually pretty amazing considering the quality and nature of this beer. A pretty dense and full layer of foam coats almost the entire glass, and has pretty solid staying power. Very nice visuals here. Overall, this isn’t really all that bad a beer, just that aftertaste is the major issue. I’ve had worse.

Tap is better than bottle. Reddish/amber color with medium carbonation. Sweet and somewhat cidery flavor with a foul aftertaste that is somehow wrong for the beer. Not that good.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a light redish color, aroma malty sweetness, basic macro smell. Taste is watery and sweet with a little bitterness and a bad bad sour aftertaste. Overcarbonated. Overall, not too good.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a light amber with not much head. Nose like most macros, not much here in the aroma. OK taste with a little bite, and very little body. Highly carbonated and it finishes with a little bitterness and a little sourness. Not terrible, just not great. Another so-so beer from Latrobe Brewing.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a medium, slightly hazy, amber with a smaller head. Light caramel aroma and taste. A little on the skunky side. Body was thin and watery. A beer for the masses, but not for me.
