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.

Not as good as the Yuengling Porter despite what the rankings might say. Not a great ’lager’ but it does have that pleasant Yuengling taste.

A local favorite, here in Eastern Pennsylvania. It really is quite good for a cheap local brew. Lackluster aroma, medium mouthfeel. Dry and mild, very refreshing on a hot July afternoon. Look out when it warms up, soap and water, will leave you with that morning mouth taste. Cannot beat 15 bucks a case!
