Can. Grassy, sour skunked yeast in the nose. Pretty darn sour nose. Transparent apple juice color with a small quickly dissipating false white head. Start is kind of sweet turning sour and metallic to finish. A strange bitterness lingers....Pretty rough stuff...

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2008 A blond pur with typical carbonated head and lace. A slightly sweet aroma that brings back memories of past days in upstate NY and SU. Not bad for a mass produced beer.
The new version of this beer is rather smooth and creamy and the "headache in every beer" is gone!

A pale lager with a little hoppy taste and a quicky diminshing head also a little flat tasting. I hope that other beers from New York arent influenced by this brew.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2005 I like Utica Club. Could be genetic because my father and grandmother grew up drinking it. Most people I know seem to think itís pretty bad. I find it quite tasty.

The aromawas really the high point with hints of malt and a hoppy presence. Taste was definitely downhill from the aroma - a bland, sweet, watered-down, malt liquor flavor. I canít say this was a really bad beer - it just lacked any real distinction or quality.

I enjoy this beer quite a bit. My partiality to this beer could be because that iím a Utican myself or it could be the delectable taste for such a low price.

One of the worst beers Iíve had the misfortune to pour down my throat. Iím not sure what they were trying to create but if it was swill, they succeeded.

pee pee in a can. If you had ever been to Utica, you would understand. It needs to be cheap and it needs to keep you drunk. The taste takes a very distant third.

Earlier comments mentioned its similarity to a malt liquor and I agree. A valid attempt at a balance with a dry, slightly bitter finish.
