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.

Excellent brew. Pleasing color, nice lacing. Very crisp, with as clean a finish I have ever had. Given the color, I was expecting a heavier, more bitter flavor, but I was pleasantly surprised. It may be a bit too light for some tastes, and those who prefer their beer to have the consistency of syrup and the taste of dirty socks soaked in malt might be disappointed.

this is beer gets underrated the further away from pottsville pa you get. this is a valid gripe because the taste and feel of the beer from a fresh keg in pennsylvania is absolutely fantastic

Pours a clear copper. Thin, disappearing white head. Not a lot to offer in terms of aroma. Well balanced taste with a slightly bitter finish following initial malty flavor. Light bodied with a thin texture. Slightly above average carbonation. Nothing spectacular overall, but in relation to the style and given its price.....awesome bargain. Buying a case of this is definitely money well spent.

Will I ever find a lager I kinda like? I mean, when I’m at a bar, playing pool, this is the best by far of some options that make me give the spontaneous "stink-face". Best part of this beer is its appearance. Honestly, it’s the color of a bud bottle with a mild ruddy hue. Little, but lingering head. Not off putting wheaty/caramely but typical sour wift on the backside. We just go further downhill when we get to flavor. Tolerable, when you’re in an environment that requires beer. Sweet malt, then sour-ick. Oh brother. I’m tired of writing about this beverage. Basically, the least of all evils at this bar.

This used to by my go to beer before I grew up and learned about real beer. Would I ever buy it again...probably not. However, I would not turn away from it if a cold one was handed to me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Probably one of the best "mass-produced" beers available. Always has a good poor, with a nice dark appearance to it.

An overrated beer. Slightly unpleasant taste with a distinctly unpleasant aftertaste. Not much better than Bud.

Great beer. This is exactly what a lager should be. The flavor is near perfect. Prefer from a tap then a bottle. This beer canned just does not taste good at all.

Used to be my staple (when friends were drinking coors/miller). Recently started to get into the really good stuff. Certainly a GREAT beer for the price (esp. in PA). Tastes of mild malts and some corn.

A very good American Lager. Nice taste balance and smooth finish. Good carbonation with good foamy head. Clear, light amber color. Very good beer to drink casually and often.
