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.

Aroma is somewhat nutty, head minimal but present. No lacing, appearance is attractive. Slightly bitter with a very mild soapy finish. Light on the palate and overall smooth. More attached to my stouts and wheat ales than this amber beer. Not a bad brew, but not something I’d keep around the house. Black & Tan is more like it.

The go-to beer. Perfect in any situation. Rich flavor for an American Lager, much more complex than any of the other big national lagers. Consistent quality, always refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good food beer, to me it tastes like a mix of guiness and miller light. I recommend giving it a try!

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2014 A good staple beer. It?s nothing fancy. But, it?s good when you?re working around the house or watching the game. It?s much better than other big named American lagers!

Smooth amber beer. Good beer to drink on tap at the bar (it’s easy to spot out in a croud of glasses on a table). My usual beer at the bar, would definitely recommend at least trying this beer.

12oz bottle. Nice amber color, decent head that dissipates fairly quickly, medium-body, toasty caramel malt. Very good and flavorful for a macro-brewery and for the price. Much better than the big names, just below your average micro breweries.

Great everyday beer, much better than big breweries. Light and smooth, strong flavor that doesn’t bite or have bitterness. Perfect on a hot day or by the campfire on a cool night. The go to beer.

This one is a staple here at Penn State! KNUG, fellow Penn State boozer, is right on down below! This one is perfect anytime, reasonably priced, and a great experience!
