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.

Great for the price. Takes the edge off the day better than more beers.

I like Lager Light better, but this is the Original. Anywhere in Eastern PA, South Jersey, just say gimme a Lager..this is it.

My wife likes to call this the redneck bud of Philly. Surprisingly, it's spread beyond PA and lots of other people like it. I'm like many others when I say I enjoy it for it's historical nature (Oldest Brewery in America). As a beer it's good for tailgating or shlosh drinking. It can leave you very bloated but can get you going for a long time without having to endure the obliteration you might get from a barley wine or something! Pleasing middle of the road beer with nothing strong about it. Very little hops. Not very malty. Can be considered sweet tasting by some folks with stronger bitter buds on the tongue. For a mass produced, Big American Brewery competitor I rank it on the top of the list with the Buds, Coors, Michs and such.

Good flavor, especially for the price. Sweet tones with a unique, smooth finish. A fine local brew for Southeastern PA.

Not bad for a Lager. I actually enjoyed a few years ago but now it is quite tiresome. Maybe this is because I live near the factory, or because I have experienced better beers. It is not bad for a premium lager, but it does give off a banana-like taste and flavor

Its a good light lager. If I could find it around here I would drink it more often. You canít beat Americaís Oldest Brewery.

A very easy-downing beer, especially during the summer months. Overall, a very good lager, but it has to be fresh. I had some very rotten bottles and even bad drafts at some establishments. Youíll know if it is rotten, because it will taste of skunk juice. Very good, as long as you get it fresh.
