2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 5/20
I found a case of this fine brew at a store in Pittston, PA. Very good and crisp- a slight sweet taste that I liked. I liked the old pounder bottles 16 oz- very good if chilled on ice. I can’t understand how these wonderful beers are not sold everywhere? I guess if you can’t make it nationwide... oh well

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Probably one of the best buys there is: 24 returnable 16 oz bottles cold for just under $14. Aroma is slightly grainy with lots of cereal. look is golden yellow with a quickly dissolved head. flavor was sweet and cereal like with no detection of hops. Light palate. Good for easy cheap summer time drinking. And who doesn’t want more 16 oz bottles for homebrewing.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours yellowish with short lived head. Aroma is of grainy bread, corn syrup, and cereals. Flavor is sweet and smooth cerealish malt with a kind of fake honey sweetness and high initial carbonation. Really not too great considering i couldnt detect any hops, but still better than most ’american pilseners’ i suppose.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden color with a white head that all but disappears. Grainy aroma. Very smooth, slightly sweet flavor. Nice soft mouthfeel. No detectable hops - odd in a pilsner, but still a pleasant surprise.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
It’s either this or Lionshead thats sitting in my fridge most times. Not bad price, and not bad taste. I love the 16oz bottles, makes less trips to the fridge:)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is an average but pleasant brew that I have sampled on and off for almost 30 years. Very good value for the price. If you have the option of picking up Steg vs. the macro brew swill, go for the Steg without question.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear yellow color with a thin head that disappears quickly. Not much aroma-some yeast. Pours with a lot of carbonation that also disappears quickly. Remarkably smooth, light-bodies beer, though not much depth to the taste-some malts. Not bad for a hot summer day on a small budget.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is a cheap beer, $10.89 for a case of 16 ounce returnables, including deposit. There is a nice white head with good lacing. This is a bland beer, no hop taste, but a semi decent malt taste. It is not a bad beer for the price.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) Pouring a bottle of beer and then watching the result can be one of life’s simple pleasures. This beer pours a bright straw color and is fully clear, so the frenzied movement of the bubbles during the pour was clearly visible. And for several minutes, hundred of bubbles have formed down low on the side of the glass and then rushed to the top to contribute to the tall, creamy, and long-lasting white head. I can just sit here and gaze at this for awhile, eyes unfocused but taking it all in. But I’ve done that for a few minutes, so it’s time to move on. This beer smells sweet and grainy, and just not aromatic or pleasant enough to be a factor in whether I want to taste this beer or not. Flavor is lightly grainy, only mildly sweet, and lacking any hops that I can detect. It doesn’t taste bad, just really weak, and the body is very light and somewhat thin as well, but nicely carbonated. But yet the carbonation bubbles keep coming, the head is still fully covering the beer, and thick, dense lace is now covering much of the glass. In the end, regardless of the beauty it is in the glass, I’m just not caring much for actually drinking this beer. But I’d say this is a positive alternative to BMCs if you’re into that sort of thing.
