1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 [bottle - 12 oz] Clear gold pour with a foamy head. Very bitter and sour aroma with metallic hints. The flavor is sweet at the beginning and then metallic and dry. Very unpleasant. It gets extra points however for being a historically significant beer.

Not so great. The Matt Brewing Co makes excellent beer. This throw back to pre prohibition days is not an example of their talent.

Bought a twelve pack in Binghamton, NY for under five bucks. Piss water appearance with short foam, and few bubbles. I’ll give it extra points for being a classic beer resurrected, but its "absolutely chemical tasting swill".

Chris always talks about the good old days of Shulz and Duli (sp?), so when I found this at a beverage store near the beach in North Carolina, I just had to get some to share wth him. It’s basically a light lager with not too much of an adjunct presence, well carbonated, a very little bit of hop dryness at the end.

Can. Grassy, sour skunked yeast in the nose. Pretty darn sour nose. Transparent apple juice color with a small quickly dissipating false white head. Start is kind of sweet turning sour and metallic to finish. A strange bitterness lingers....Pretty rough stuff...

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2008 A blond pur with typical carbonated head and lace. A slightly sweet aroma that brings back memories of past days in upstate NY and SU. Not bad for a mass produced beer.
The new version of this beer is rather smooth and creamy and the "headache in every beer" is gone!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pale lager with a little hoppy taste and a quicky diminshing head also a little flat tasting. I hope that other beers from New York arent influenced by this brew.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2005 I like Utica Club. Could be genetic because my father and grandmother grew up drinking it. Most people I know seem to think it’s pretty bad. I find it quite tasty.

The aromawas really the high point with hints of malt and a hoppy presence. Taste was definitely downhill from the aroma - a bland, sweet, watered-down, malt liquor flavor. I can’t say this was a really bad beer - it just lacked any real distinction or quality.
