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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
