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.

As far as standard American beers go, this is so much better in taste than Bud, Coors, etc. For this price, added to the novelty of drinking the oldest beer in America, what a deal! Can’t go wrong here.

Not much in aroma, the appearance is a clear brown color and taste has a bit of sweetness to it, not at all bad. A huge step up from "Budweiser" or "Miller", itís something you can drink a six pack of in one sitting.

Pours golden! Just like a real lager should. Smells of esters. Tastes like corn!! Lots of corn! And finishes with butter. Yep, itís a cold fermented lager. Seems far too carbonated, but do able. Way better than the usual american lagers Iím used. Seriously, it is in the next league up, just not spectacular. The heavy corn and diac really throws me.

My favorite "cheap" bear, I have never poured it, straight from the bottle it has a skunky green bottle aroma, more taste than the big 3 and it has a great dry finish. It isnít 7.99 a pint IPA and isnít meant to be. There is no better mass market lager out there IMO. I cannot get it in my state, but I my Ohio family knows they cannot enter my house without a few 12 packs.

Poured a 12oz can into a Samuel Adams Glass. Appearance: Awesome copper/orange hue. It is clear with carbonation visible. Pours a nice 2 finger white, soapy head that disappears rather quickly The beer leaves minor lacing. Smell: Some slight caramel, Slight sweet malt nothing strong. Something that I describe as a Yuengling smell I guess its some kind of adjunct. . Taste: This is how a lager should taste like. very clean, refreshing with some sweet malt, caramel and toffee. Could use a bit more hops to take it to the next level. Very good flavors from a brewer thatís been doing this since 1829! Drinkability: Beer is very easy drinking its only 4.4% ABV so that is understandable but when you think of the flavor its seems it should have around 5.5%. Its drinks like a light beer with full beer flavor. For sure a sessionable beer. when you think of the price I donít know it doesnít outperform the BMC beers. A great option from Americaís oldest brewery,

This is my favorite íanytimeí beer. I recently had the wonderful experience of purchasing a keg of this and it was fantastic. Especially at a cheaper price than Bud or Miller.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2013 I guess Iím just biased, being from SE Pennsylvania this is THE staple beer. Iíve tried hundreds of others, but I always come back to this one. Always smooth and balanced, your first one is always as good as the twelth of the evening. Oldest continuously operating brewery in America, you gotta love it!
