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.

Draft from The Gatherings Pub in Erie, PA. Light amber colored with a fair head. Better than the typical lager, but not going to blow anyone’s socks off. Very drinkable and a good beer for the price.

This was the first beer that I had that I really really enjoyed. A friend of mine who lives in Lancaster, PA told me about it and talked me into trying it. Glad he did. Carbonation is just right, not too much and not too little. Very drinkable, and one I will return to again and again.

It’s one of those beers that is ranked above the standard brews, but it does not do enough to receive much praise. Very clean finish.

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.

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.
