UPDATED: MAY 12, 2003 Very good regular ol' American lager, but of course a hell of a lot better than the mass market swill, dark gold color, doesn't keep all that great of head, but very smooth & very drinkable, this is the beer that the fellas pound while we're having a good time whether it's out or we're just stayin in, the cans are actually a little bit better than the bottles, the drinkability & smoothness improves for some reason out of the can

The main thing that keeps me coming back to this beer is the taste. A friend of mine tried it and said it tasted like a mid-priced steak, which I thought was unusual. However, in some bizarre way, it kinda does this lager justice. I agree with the previous reviewer though, that it does have a strange, lingering aftertaste. A better than average beer, especially for the price.

My family has these massive Irish-American reunions where folks come from all over and a Pennsylvania cousin made a hit with this stuff; even those among my family’s bud die hards could recognize the jump in malty complexity. There’s a suspicious aftertaste, though.

The default beer in this area. We Lancaster residents are lucky because this stuff is worlds beyond Bud, Natty Ice, etc. Deep amber color, actual hops in the taste, though not much. Great party beer.

The Pennsylvania equivalent of the West Coast’s Henry Weinhardt’s Private Reserve. A very basic lager, but with way more flavor and depth than Budweiser. Has an annoyingly metallic flavor, but not bad if you are out of money and want to drink a few brewskis at a party.
