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.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2003 A pretty good lager. Good on a hot day. Has a malty taste but not too heavy. Overall a good lager. Has a somewhat sweet aftertaste. Creamy head, but doesn't hold up well. It's overall a good lager, but seems to suffer from the mass quantity syndrome of huge batches.

I like Lager Light better, but this is the Original. Anywhere in Eastern PA, South Jersey, just say gimme a Lager..this is it.

Drinkable, cheap lager and a better alternative to the normal American swill....

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 One of the finest American Lagers. Nice amber color. Creamy head. The hops give it a very crisp, clean flavor and finish. Easily drinkable in quantity. Really, there’s nothing especially exciting to write about here. It’s simply an outstanding lager.

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.
