Its a diabetics beer with no sugar salt or presevatives but definantly something different. Crisp light taste for a lager. Not half bad but i dont think i would but another case.

Very crisp and refreshing. Another local beer that isn’t too bad.

Better than mass produced US Beers, but average at best, check the born on date before buying, if its not superfresh forget about it, heed their warnings & do not expose to sunlight or it will skunk instantly, I like this beer for what is, a small Pa brewer enjoyed mostly by locals

Don’t think that they should be bragging about how long they’ve brewed in Pennsylvania: seems that the older brewers (Rolling Rock, Iron City, etc) make swill and the newer brewers (Victory, Troeg) make good stuff. Rather boring stuff.

Nothing special here. Clean and crisp tasting. An all-around, pretty good lager.

Nothing exciting to write home about. This beer reminds me of the time Mr. Roper made beer. If I would of been able to have a taste this would be it. ;)

krisfleet (130) - Sharon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2002
Drinkable clean tasting beer, without much aftertaste. Better than Rolling Rock, but perhaps not as good as Yuengling. A descent PA beer.

Not bad when you get it fresh, and cold (it’s really bad when cool-warm). A little too sweet, sort of corny (but they don’t add sugar or other preservatives). 75% of this beer is consumed in St. Mary’s. Apparently, they have an ’Eternal Tap’ where visitors can go and pour themselves a free one. Average lager.

The worst of the PA beers
