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 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.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 13, 2001
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.

fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 4, 2001
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!

Nice Beer in its price category. Got a case for $14.99. A staple for any summer party.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2004 Good Beer at GREAT price. This is a good choice or a house beer, it's easy to drink and has a pretty universally accepted taste. May not be everybody's favorite beer, but almost everyone that drinks it likes it more than other $15/case brews. Very thirst quenching. I keep it in my fridge
