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.

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.

An ok lager, but I have noticed a HUGE difference since they open another brerwery in Florida. I think they are staring to slip and turn MACRO!!!!!

A pretty good beer--pennsylvanians tend to hype it up too much. I would not hesitate to buy a case if it was offered.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 29, 2002
Damn, this stuff is no good. Light and weak on all counts. Very similar to Bud, which is not mondo or radical on any way. Not my cup o’ tea. I shy away from beer that looks like pee.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2002
Medium golden body, crystal clear, small head, malty nose. Fairly watery, malt-accented, much like a German helles, albeit not a really good one. I had a college buddy who hailed from Pottsville, and he didn’t like beer. I doubt that this beer was the reason, since it’s a decent brew, but it’s not my kind of thing.

pivo (2665) - GERMANY - NOV 24, 2002
Smells like sweet shredded cardboard. Nice amber color and low tight head. Odd taste with a spicy end, but not really a hop bitterness. Medium body, cream mouth feel. Balance is not convincing.

YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 24, 2002
light malt nose. Nice amber color with a little head. Malty, but also like honey flavor. Kicks on the top of the tongue. Average, but what a honking squared bottle.
