COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An iconic American lager famous for its rich amber color and medium-bodied flavor - with a roasted caramel malt for a subtle sweetness and a combination of cluster and cascade hops, this true original delivers a well-balanced taste with very distinct character.

Very good for a macro-ish brewery (the oldest in America according to the literature). Nice light malty body. Unexpected hop character. Very ordinary, but better than most macro-styled lagers.

Well for a mass produced lager this was better than most. Decent malt, not as thin as I would imagine. Quite light and decent carbonation. Nothing to rave about, but not terrible.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2003
Drank many of these vacationing in NC (Ocean Isle Beach), could not find anything that wasn't BMC. Good on a hot day and with food. Has a decent malty base with some mild hops at the finish.

BBB63 (5937) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2003
On tap in Pittsburgh: Amber hue with no head or lace, thin to medium-bodied. Malty caramel nose with a light citrus undertone. Smooth, light hoppy bite. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel. Quaffable and refreshing. Just a ordinary beer.

Shagnasty (130) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2005 A great tasting lager. Could be thicker bodied, but the taste is undeniably pelasant. Smooth and a bit nutty. Like it much better when I was 18.

Poured an amber color with small white bubbly head. A pretty good lager. Not really much flavor to it though.

jezmez68 (395) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Decent Lager for the price. They finally have this in a lot of east coast stores now. I have been told about this beer for years. For all of you Leinie Lovers, this one has a similar personality.

McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2003
This is probably the best lager that's guaranteed to be on tap at any decent restaurant in Pennsylvania. It's a pretty decent lager, especially for the price. I recommend trying their porter also.

Nice for a lager, which is not quite my favorite style. Smooth and a little sweet. Nothing at all offensive.

0399 case code (bottles) … Pours beautifully, then trouble! Fizzy corn water. From the bottle, devoid of any flavor; from the can, occasional horrific chemical under/ overtones. Geezus... could that can-based off-flavor be bathroom cleaner?
