COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since the Latrobe Brewery's founding in 1893, the Loyalhanna Stream has been its source of pure mountain water. The spirit of the Loyalhanna comes to life when combined with premium malted barley and the freshest hops as specified in our unique recipe. We are proud to serve you our traditional amber lager.

It lacks the bitterness that Yuengling has. JUst right in my opinion. However, if you've ever seen the Loyalhanna creek that it is named after you wouldnt drink it.

Xmas in Latrobe this year meant drink Rolling Rock. Their Loyalhanna poured a nice amber color with a good head and malty nose, with less of the usual Rolling Rock DMS. The body was light for the nose and look, but that just made it easier to drink. Really, very similar to what most German Octoberfests are these days, with the added bonus of being fresher and less expensive. Definately worth buying again.

O.K. for a cheaper beer. It's a typical drinkable lager, good for a night out at the bar. Tastes pretty similar to Killarneys Red Lager (from A-B). I bought a case and I'd probably buy it again - not a craft/micro brew, but not terrible either.

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.

Good size offwhite head, short lived. Crystal clear amber color. Bready malty nose. Med/light body. Good mouthfeel. Medium sweet maltiness with a slight hop,spicey flavor.Finish is medium dry, slightly oxydized. Guess this is Latrobes answer to yuenglings amber lager? Good try! But nuthin special.

I liked it better then Yuengling, but still wasn't that impressed by it.

Tastes like a lighter version of Yeungling's Lager. This is good beeer for downing ice cold after mowing the lawn on a hot day. Definitely better than Rolling Rock but I'll stick with Yeungling

strong full bodied flavor. Deep rich color and excellent head made this relative newcomer one I'd buy again.

A little bland, but really easy to drik at the same time. Much better than rolling rock, latrobe's other beer.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [draft at Heinz Field - Pittsburgh, PA] Nice rich color. Very slight hoppy aroma. Initial hoppy taste with a smooth finish. Very easy to drink, but rather thin. On the whole, not a bad lager.
