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 a bad run of the brewery beer this beer gets a bad rap alot because people dont clean there tap lines often enough. however it is a nice drinkable every day beer well balanced a little sweet but drinkable and goes well with a nicks roastbeef and lots of horseradish

RE-rate: had way too much of this at the beach. Iíve noticed that it gets too sweet after a couple. Fantastic. donít know why i can never find it in Ohio. A summertime favorite.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2006 My favorite lager on tap! need i say more? yes. It has a wonderful crisp hoppy start, and leaves a pungent hoppy trail all through your mouth as it washes down and leaves traces of malt notes behind. Delicate yet strongly stated. wow.

Well I suppose Iím due for a rerate of this one. Iíve certainly had many many bottles of it since my first draught experience. It certainly is no 4.1 in bottles, being pasteurized and filtered and having a distinct, yeasty, green-apple and paper flavor/aroma, with some plastic.
I donít know, I strongly hold that the fresh draughts Iíve had at PIttsburgh airport were easily 4.1ís, but until I can get back and verify that with myself (having been a LONG time ago relative to my palate development), I suppose I should average the draught score with the bottled score.

Draught 7/4/9/4/17
Bottled 6/3/6/3/12
Overall is an average of the two.
