UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [draft at The Eternal Tap, Straub Brewery - St. Marys, PA] Pours a light golden color with a light white head. A grainy nose with an unusual taste, but very pleasant. Absolutely no aftertaste or bitterness. Very easy to drink. It tastes weird because they donít add sugar or anything else like most beers do. Go to the brewery. Take the tour. Drink from the Eternal Tap. It is amazing!

Clear golden colored body with a thin white head and sparse lacing. Lightly sweet grainy cereals, some citrus and stone fruits. Medium to light bodied, smooth carbonation, lightly sweet finish. Relatively clean and straightforward.

Transfer from BA and reviewed on 2-6-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass while watching the super bowl. Appearance - A pale golden color with a white head. The head fades rather quickly leaving very little lacing. Smell - Sweeter malt of corn and a bit of caramel is most predominant at first. A bit later however, some hop aroma works its way in with some floral and more earthy aromas. Taste - A sweet corn maltiness first meets the tongue. The more subtle flavor then of comparable priced american lagers is quite pleasant and not overbearing. Toward the end of the taste, some of the hoppiness that is present in the nose comes into the taste as well. Really not too bad. Mouthfeel - Very average turbidity and carbonation level. Very drinkable, but nothing exceptional. Overall - A very easy drinking session beer. Nothing to be savored, but a good brew for football tailgating and/or watching the game. Somehow it just seems right for it.

Pours clear yellow with thin white head. Aromas of grass, light honey and some hop. Quite light and refreshing. Nothing exceptional here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Skunky aroma. Very light and watery. Thin, barely there. On par with the macros, but so light it is not offensive.
