2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap, Sampler glass.
Pale golden beer, looks like a macro light lager in glass. Slight pale head. Pilsner malt aroma predominates, bubbly to the nose, smells crisp. Decent watery light beer, reminds me of Yuengling. Clingy roasty malt aftertaste.

Pours a pale yellow color with slight white head film. Has a light watery flavor with a bit of sweet lemon and honey. Pretty good for a light lager.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap @ Duncansville. Pours a clear yellow with a small covering of white head. Minimal nose, maybe a little pale malt and possibly a little corn. Very bland flavor, and a bit of cardboard on the finish. Thin and fizzy mouthfeel. Overall, not a whole lot more going on than your average BMC.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Allison Park under the alias "Three Rivers Gold." Pours gold with no head. Typical pale lager aroma. Flavor of toasted malts and corn/rice adjucts that is countered by a detectable european leafy hop bitterness. I detected some sort of off flavor that I could not put my finger on.

(Duncansville) Pale straw body with white head. Aroma is medium sweet, peach, honey, light grassy. Taste is medium sweet, lager yeast, some grassy/herbal, light honey, seltzer. Light body with some crispness, quite drinkable. Decent for what it is.

Sampler at the Allison Park location, 02.03.08 (Super Bowl Sunday). Clear yellow, white head. Aroma is spicy, hoppy, malty. Flavor is malty and spicy. This is better than most pale lagers, a pleasant surprise.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap 10/25/07 as part of a sampler rack. Bright gold color, white foam, low retention and lacing. Nice noble hop aroma with some bready malt notes also. Very solid maltbase with perfect amount of bittering. Very surprised by this beer, though it would be the worst of the lineup.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Marzonis in Allison Park called 3 Rivers Gold. This is a very good pale lager. Much more taste than most out there. If there were going to bottle this should be one. Pour was a light gold with a one finger white head. Aroma was decent...a nice light malt tinge. Flavor was typical of a pale lager but a very pronounced hop aftertaste. Almost like a pilsener. Nice.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours light yellow with sticky white head. The aroma is surprisingly malty with lots of bread and some saltine crackers. The flavor resembles whole wheat bread, but with very papery hops after. A bit of a doughy aftertaste.
