Growing up in PA itís hard to avoid the Lager. A great alternative to the Macroís this beer is very refreshing. Pours a deep golden color while producing a light tan head.
You simply canít beat the price for this beer when compared to the offerings of the big 3.

had this in Disney. Not bad but there are better Lagerís. Amber color wiith malty smell. Corn taste in the mouth with a little bitterness. Finishes weak and dry.

If you live in PA, then you know this beer well. Is it a great beer? Yes. Is it the best beer ever? Yes. But is it a very solid brew that will cost you a few bucks more than Miller Lite and is a million times better? Yes, itís that too. The key thing is the value. Itís not like this is the best beer ever, but you can drink it all night and still have some cash left over. Best beer ever.

Nice amber color as you pour the beer, has a nice aroma of malt. Not much head or lacing happening and seems like natural carb as opposed to being pumped in. Very Very drinkable. Will drive from Mi. to Pa. to get some more.

Totally missed the boat on this thing, I guess. Wow, nothing really here. Nice dark color, but thatís about it. Smells of rice and corn or something like that. I feel like Iím drinking a lager dropped in a farmyard.

Nice (unexpected) rich color, but the head was small and short-lived. Not much aromatic hops for a lager. Tasted quite a bit of wheat in the body with some hops, taste disappears quickly. Some would say well-balanced, but I say not enough in the beer to make it interesting.

Dark blond or light copper coloured beer. The aroma is weak and light netallic.The taste is short and somewhat fruity. The finish is neutral.

Drank this lager for many years...sometimes disappointed by itís inconsistency. Skunky smell to this bottle. Smell is not overly pleasant either.
It is one of the better macro lagers out there. I would be crushed if it were expensive. Lager is a good, solid middle of the road brew.

darker color than most pale lagers. unfresh aroma of hops with some darker malts noticeable. tastes rather like anchor steam, with a sort of musty flavor that isnít too bad really. thin finish and a typical, unmemorable aftertaste. excellent for a pale lager....

In the 22 oz. bomber bottle. The bottle caught my eye, so I thought "what the hell." To my disappointment, it was a twist cap and could not be put into homebrew service. However, that was not the only let down to this little Pennsylvania favorite. Pours a rich amber color, but virtually without carbonation! No head unless you hop into the glass and splash around a little with your swim fins. Smells like water. Doesnít taste much different than aqua vitae either. After having a Frankenheim lager earlier this evening, I must say that this lacks the same lager yeast flavor. However, the two lagers are equally wet. I think that I must be missing something here, as the ratebeerians seem to respect the Pride of Pottsville.
