This is my favorite ’anytime’ 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 I’m just biased, being from SE Pennsylvania this is THE staple beer. I’ve 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!

Great beer right out of Pennsylvania that has blossomed onto the national scene of late.

I really enjoy drinking this beer. It is a good beer to have while manning the grill or hanging out with friends. It is easy drinking, not too strong with little to no after taste.

The man who says this has no flavor is obviously lacking taste-buds. Lager is usually cheap swill, however, for an everyday beer (or something to enjoy at your barbeque or tailgate), this is probably the best bang for your buck. Excellent quality, and far more flavor than the large competition.

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.

What a wonderful brew. I fell in love with this stuff in the 80s when it started to be distributed outside of Pennsylvania. Great taste: well- balanced and malty with trace of hops. Marvelous amber color adds to the enjoyment. I am so happy that we get this great beer down in sunshine land. This remains my beer of choice after many many years.
