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.

Not bad for a Lager. I actually enjoyed a few years ago but now it is quite tiresome. Maybe this is because I live near the factory, or because I have experienced better beers. It is not bad for a premium lager, but it does give off a banana-like taste and flavor

I don't know what it is, but this stuff gives me a headache everytime, and the flavor isn't worth the bucks you shell out for it. Stay away, unless it's free of course, which it usually is since everyone loves it.

This is an ok lager. Not bad if you're at a friend's house for a football game and it's there for free but, if just didn't do anything for me. Kind of boring and weak and I may sound nuts but I taste somewhat of a banana-like aftertase.

Good flavor, especially for the price. Sweet tones with a unique, smooth finish. A fine local brew for Southeastern PA.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 a nice easy drinking lager.. nothing more to say then that. If I lived in PA it would be probably my favorite to get drunk with on a night out, it´s that easy! but anyway, a slightly above average lager...

Poured a nice amber color with a small head. Malt and hops in the aroma, but not a very strong one at all. Taste is slightly above average, like a high-end macro, but not a premium beer at all. Good, but by no means great.

Fairly dark amber, more so than I expected. Only a thin, dissipating, white head. The aroma is fairly malty with hints of hops and perhaps some unsavory adjunct. The body is clean and fairly refreshing. The flavors are nothing spectacular but also not offensive. The malt heavily out-weighs the hops. There are some light hints of lemon, not really as a zest or in fruit form. More like lemon yogurt. An average lager.

Bottle, can, draught, you name it. This lager has become much more popular in the last few years here in western PA. Pours a nice amber color with small, quickly disipating head. Aroma is weak, smells like a beer from a keg party in high school, without much good or bad within. Tastes like a slightly above average lager with nice, slightly malty finish, but not incredibly memorable. Mouthfeel is normal, not bad, not great. Better than a lot of beers out there, but I don't buy it often. An ok lager.
