Brewtopia’04. Nice to see some PA representation at the fest, even if the fellow at the booth was less than enthusiastic to talk about his product. Poured and looked like a pils: pale gold, clear, foamy. A bit heavy on the malt side and somewhat cardboardish. Not much to the finish. Off the mark.

Thanks to Fatty for this. Pours a light golden with almost no head. Aroma of tea and lighter malts. A slightly roasty malt and pilsner flavor.

12 oz bottle....not much head-light beige...golden orange body with a touch of cloudiness...smells of fresh clean malts and yeast...body is watery and light, a sour malt presence, but easy to drink....a smidgen of bitter throughout...nothing special...although its well balanced

Another mediocre American style lager. Nothing memorable. It becomes pointless to write anything in depth about these types of beers, any specific descriptions. They all pretty much taste the same.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2012 bottle. a clear orange beer with no head. pale lager aroma with faint malt sweetness. honey and sweet pale malt flavors. whether a vienna or a pils, it’s not that interesting.

Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of caramel, corn flakes and oats. Taste is of corn syrup and a bit soapy.

Tap. This looks like a pilsner. Classic clear yellow color with a big white head. But the taste of the grains don’t stand out. Poor finish that was kind of sour.

Pours golden with minimal head, lace, carbonation. Does not smell very good, slightly buttery with a lot grains and not much pleasantness. Taste is buttery, skunky and mildly grainy. Pretty poor showing here. Not sure if I’ll try the others in the Penn series after experiencing this.
