This beer isn't bad. Pours dark straw/amber with some malt aroma. Finishes fairly smooth and crisp. I would drink this again.

Sampled on draft at Primanti’s this beer poured a dark amber color with a small white head. The aroma was sour, tangy, buttery and quite off. The flavor was sour, tangy and buttery. Awful.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copper coloured body with a thinnish white head. Aroma of grapes, malt and a slight hoppiness. Medium to Light-bodied; Strong mettalic twang with a large malt presence and a small fruityness (grapes and raisins). Aftertaste bittered from the toasted malt and the metal. Overall, not very pleasant, but I knew that going into it! I bought this twelve ounce bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York and sampled it on 06-December-2003.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Amber color with a modest head that fades to a lid of cream colored bubbles. Faint nut and grass aroma. Very little to this one. Colored water with a hint of malt.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a brownish golden amber with a small off white head that went away quickly. Lightly sweet, grainy, malt aroma. Flavor is on the lighter side as well. Really just kind of a bland malty thing going on with a small hint of dry hops in the tail. Very much like Yuengling Lager, no reason this one couldn’t be just as popular. If you like this kind of malty pale lager, go for it.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A nutty/grassy/oily/cherryish aroma which was interesting. A needs-work label, but good pale ale colored lager. A little oxidized tasting, and under-hopped. Sweetish, a litle grainy and doughy. A very drinkable beer, but overall not a very good beer, if that makes any sense. Flattish, quick, grainy finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 27, 2011 Served at the Pgh Bottleshop Cafe in Bridgeville. This was in a big 16 oz aluminum bottle! Beautiful blue and silver label aesthetics. Date code is 1861. Pour is darker than your typical ubiquitous pale yellow lager, more brownish. No head, just a froth on top. Aroma is slightly sweet. Flavor has a slight tinge of bitterness. Interestingly industrial background qualities in there. Finish is non offensive, quite friendly and lagerlike. THis beer can easily be enjoyed, it lacks any hints of that tough Iron City. There are other economy beers out there that are much cheaper and just as enjoyable. Augustiner lager’s sister beer Old German comes to mind. Overall OK, but the taste leaves something to be desired after the looks of this beer were so darkish.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at Primanti Bros., Harmarville. Weak aroma, very little malt or hops. Mild Bohemian lager aroma, but subdued. Medium dark amber clear with no head. Just a wispy ring of off-white foam on the periphery. Medium light watery body with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts with medium beany malt sweetness. Bohemian-style lager with a bit too much of sugary malts, like they’re shooting for a malt liquor. Light acidity and carbonic tang. Mild hops but not particularly fruity or floral. Just gives a bitter kick and dry after.
