This was a nice change for the traditional cheap beer at most of the bars around me. Similar in taste to Yuengling Traditional Lager and could be a subsitute for those that favor that taste.

Light caramel aroma, with some hoppiness. Bit carbonic and watery. Head is off-white and dissipates quickly over medium caramel brown clear beer. Medium light body with medium carbonation. Starts a bit sweet and lightly acidic. Tame, watery lager with minimal hops, but nice drinkability. Finish is mild sweet with no bitterness and light acidity. A watery lager that’s a bit smoother and sweeter than the Rolling Rock line. Watery clean after.

Much better than rolling rock, but still nothing interesting. Very standard lager, didnt realize it was from Latrobe when I tried it (why do macro brewers try to hide?). Average at best...

I suppose this is Rolling Rock’s entry into the Yuengling Lager market. TRhe color was nice, the head retention acceptable. Malt sweetness up front, not much in the way of hop flavor. I’m glad I tried it, may buy it again, but prefer Yuengling’s.

Got this one from a neighbor. Nothing to write home about, but not terrible either. We drank these while playing horseshoes on a 90 degree day.

I enoyed this beer via a friend of mine from Latrobe. It was fairly good having traces of honey or almost an sweet taste as per the amber. Decent beer.

I thought this would be a lot like drinking Yeungling Traditional, not special, but drinkable and cheap, so I picked up six on sale for an early session before heading out Saturday night. Nasty stuff. Looked like beer soda, offensive aroma and flavor somewhat like carbonated listerine. This is one to avoid, don't be duped by the moderate price and sharp label.

Disappointing. Poured with a slight fizzy head, big bubbles, a decently dark color, but had the same off-putting cheap hops flavor of Latrobe's better known products. Finish is weak, mouthfeel is thin, taste somewhat like high-quality cardboard.

Medicinal nose, pale amber color. Scratchy graininess in the middle and light dry end. Overall unsuccessful and at times quite bad.
