COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American standard lager beer. First brewed by the Geo. Wiedemann Brewery across the river from Cincinnati in Newport, Kentucky. Now brewed in Pittsburgh and sent back to Greater Cincinnati. Fresh, light and easy-drinking. Nice body and refreshingly light.

I walk into Drew-LaPalooza and Drew breaks out this! Yes! Light golden, not quite yellow color, has a wet dog smell but this brew is "registered pure". OK. Taste is surprisingly clean with minimal bite. Mass consumption would probably wrench on your head the next day.

Not bad to the eye, Not offensive to the nose but something about the flavor is really bad. I avoid this stuff at all costs.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2003 This stuff tasted better back when it was brewed in Kentucky... but it wasn't a real winner even back then. Ho-hum, another standard American Standard

Recently, I got my first taste of this brew. I was actually very suprised by the quality. I tend to be a notoriously cheap bastard and this stuff was right up my alley. Very inexpensive, @ $3.50 per 6 pack, it lacked many of the inadmirable qualities of it's American counterparts. Wiedemann didn't have a shitload of flavor, but at the same token, it had absolutely no foul aftertaste whatsoever. I was expecting sort of a metallic or corn-like flavor and I got none of that. I simply got an easy to drink, very refreshing beer. I may have found a new beer to accompany me on my fishing trips and golf outings. To all of you beer geeks out there: TRY THIS BEER!!

Looked rather interesting. The case was not in black and white, but it was yet not in color either. I was expecting a weird, cheap, generic beer, but actually it's good. Great flavor, keeps it's coldness, and great for a beer to keep constantly in the fridge for just a beer here and there. Overall, look past the bland box, it's a decent beer.

pours a golden straw color typical of american standard. very light and watery. but still has more hop and malt flavors than most american standards. it claims to be registered pure, and i'm not sure what that means.

A good domestic lager with a lot of flavor. I used to really love this stuff when it was brewed in Evansville, IN. However, the Pittsburgh version is still a nice treat when I can find it.

The cheapest of the cheap...I like it because the can looks like one of those fake brand beer cans that they drank on ’70s sitcoms.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2006 Hoppy and dry. Great tasting domestic beer. Has a rather stinky aroma, but does not smell that bad. No after taste. Easily bests Miller or Busch made beers in price and taste. I drink it daily.
