Kinz (3405) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Chance to try a version of a once proud brew. Well, at least old time, if not that proud. Pale gold, slight head fades quick. Slight aroma of corn with a hint of artificial honey. Flavor is sweet adjunct, with absolutely nothing on the finish. Maybe a bit of drying bitterness, but that might just be my imagination looking for something. Not a good beer, but by no means as nasty as many of the ratings make it out to be.

I’m not going to say that this is a great beer, but if you are comparing it to a microbrew, you’re really comparing apples and oranges. If, however, you are comparing it to comparable beers (i.e. light american lagers that are dirt cheap), I don’t think you can go wrong with a UC. Would I serve it to someone trying to impress them? No. But when you’re sitting at the end of the dock on a hot day and just want something to quench your thirst, UC is pretty darn good. And you can’t beat the price (if you’re in Upstate NY anyway).

This a very inconsistent brand, I’ve had it when there is definite beer taste and I’ve had it when there is no taste. Cheap, but for a local beer, it could be so much better.

pootzboy (1609) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2006
Tastes actually better than I remember it in the 70s before east end brewing folded. This beer has some grain in the nose and palate...although still a weak malt spine, distressed with cardboard tastes from rice and sickly vegital sweetness from corn. A quick finish with no aftertaste, this is a product of the multi-cerial recipes that dominated the commercial lager wars of the 60s and 70s....thank God they’re over...beer couldn’t stand to get any blander or carnalized ....all in all, this is about the best tasting survivor of the 60’s pale lager wars... but nostagia for Shultz and Dooley is not strong enough to make me buy this again.

This stuff makes me gag just thinking about it. I would compare this to urine, but that wouldn’t be fair to all the urine in the world. My grandfather won’t even drink this stuff. This is strictly for bums and poor college students. Avoid like the clap.

When life’s got you down, buy a case of this, get a room at the downtown motor lodge and have at it. Just hope the manager doesn’t have the police on speed dial.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 5, 2006
12 oz bottle at The Federal in Durham, NC. Clear pale golden color without any head or lace. Smells strange...like lemon squeezed into a glass of water. Tastes suprisingly similar...a little lemony and there is a metallic aftertaste. Crisp and exhuberantly carbonated. Poor effort.

Utica club leaves something for the tongue to remember. A brewery with history and swagger. I love it.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2005
12 oz. can. Pours a light yellow with a fizzy white head. Very, very light aroma. Not much flavor to speak of. Does anyone remember the days when F.X. Matt brewed "Maximus Super"?!!

No head, yellow, decent floral aroma. No foul tastes , points for that, but pretty darn light and inoffensive.
