COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed by ale breweries to compete with the surging popularity of lager beer, it remains a regional specialty in the Northeast United States. Our version is light-bodied and pale straw color, but uses no corn or rice as many of the original versions did. The result is a supremely malty and refreshing version of a style dear to our hearts

Mep3222 (572) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Slight malty and yeasty aroma. Pretty light in color and flavor. Bit of a lager funk finish. Not a bad beer for a light drinkable beer for the masses, but not something I would seek out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
