HEY! Not bad at all! Had this when in school in PA quite often. Delightfully light yet hoppy and crisp. There are far worse beers around than this.

More beer in a bag. Tastes bad, but has a good all american name to it. The bag is ingenious though.

This stuff had only a very vague skunk smell and tasted like waterdowned crap. Its one redeaming quality is that it comes in a platic bag with a draw string. The idea being you put ice in the bag with the beer to keep it cold. I have to respect that idea.

Not BAD. There are definitely better lagers than this, but I would actually pay to drink this beer. I knew a guy from St. Mary’s PA who swore by this stuff, but decide for yourself.

Watery crap. It might be fresh but it still sucks. Only a small step up from Bud.

Honestly fresh, particularly when you get it directly from the brewery. This is a great beer when fresh, I can’t say how it is after some shelf time though.

This is a smooth, flavorful beer. I’ve been told wheat is a component, so don’t drink too much or you’ll be sorry the next day. Leaves a bit of a faint, funny aftertaste though, similar to the smell of wet hay (not as bad as it sounds). A Pennsylvania favorite. My friend gets it fresh from the brewery, so it may not be as good elsewhere.
