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.

Had this may times. Latest was out of a bottle at our company XMas party. Nothing wrong with it. As someone else said it’s a cheap lager but an ok one. Can get harsh in the finish.

Nice frothy head which disappears in about 10 seconds. Slightly skunky aroma. Medium amber color. Drinks easy but with a slight iron taste which was not appealing. Mild hop finish but with little character. I can’t believe that I used to drink this stuff regularly. Ok for a lager and for mass consumption. Better than most of your mass produced crap. Still, I wouldn’t brag about this to your friends.

Very clean, crisp and dry with a mild lemony sweetness. Hints of spice in the aroma but also a little skunky (although not disturbingly so). Drinks fairly easily. Very much in the German lager/pilsener style and overall not bad for a US version.

Its a good beer, but drinking to much of this will give you the worst hangover the following morning..

Probably the best beer in its price range. More flavor than similarly priced beers like Bud. Still really easy to drink though.

Has a nice malty aroma but that is where it ends for me. The taste is ruined by rice malt and some kind of nasty chemical taste. No hopw to mention. Better than the Black and tan though. Reminds me of that phony Killians taste.

This beer is stands as my favorite beer. Everything about it is superior. The taste is refreshing and full bodied yet not too filling. I could drink this all day long.

The standard beer in Central PA. It’s not bad, and the price is very good (usually about $15 for a case of 24 12oz bottles). A safe choice.
