PRUCK (19) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Whenever I’m in regions of the country that carry this shit I go ahead and drink it. Most likely for some sentimental, experiential, unquantifiable reason. Sorta like how I’ll drink Ballantines if I’m in NYC. Anyhow, this beer is more or less really nothing to write home about. I’m happy for them that they’re ’family owned’, but it’s not like I feel particularly sorry for families that are already rich as fuck anyway. LIke, I’m SURE that whoever owns this shit is a millionaire, so lay off the touchy feely attempts to mess with my emotions over beer already. What I will say is that this beer DOES NOT suck, and that whenever I drink a dozen of them I have a headache that is way worse than if I drink a dozen natural lights, despite the two beers having comparable abv. the end.

Bottled. A pretty decent lager. Amber color with white lacing. Not too wheaty or malty. A good macro.

stevoj (3718) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Wedding reception at Spring Manor winery. More malty than your traditional pale lager, closer to a Vienna. Amber body, sweet malt nose. Taste is more sweetness, possibly due to some adjuncts. Not horrible, but a bit cloying.

Zymurgeist2 (1695) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Draught at Jet Rock Bar and Grill in Terminal B of PHL. Clear copper with white head that is pristine and leaves full lacing. Crisp malt and harsh bitter finish.

generallee08 (771) - New York, USA - JUN 21, 2016
It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: It has a bright yellow colored body with very good clarity and visible carbonation rushing up to bright white head. The head is light and soapy. It quickly settled down to a wispy thin film covering. Smell: The aroma is light and cereal like with a faint floral hops in the background. Taste / Palate: The flavor is light and clean. It’s has cereal and light grain like notes with a light floral and grassy hay like hops. It feels light and refreshing with balanced carbonation.

I have never run into this until my visit to Florida, though I’ve heard all about it dating back to high school history class. Fun to finally try. Twist off green bottle at the hotel. Darker in color. Cool, fresh, refreshing lager with a hint of sweet malt. A good cool down beer, and much preferred over the competition.

Af at være Amerikas ældste bryggeri må man forvente de har lært at brygge øl. Men.... Deres lager er lettere sur i det, næsten ingen humle, og så er der ikke den smag af korn eller frugt som der sommetider er i lager-øl.

May 10, 2016 - can at SeaWorld. Seemed like an amber pour with nice amount of head that lasted for a bit. Aroma and taste of grain, malt and mild bitterness.

On tap at Quaker Steak & Lube PIT. Deep copper with a small white head that lasts ans leaves good lace. Nose is mostly caramel with slight floral hop. Taste is light+ sweet caramel with minimal bitterness. Medium- mouth with average carbonation and a crisp finish. OK. 5/3+/5-/3/10
