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.

This is, by far, the finest beer I have ever consumed. Price, flavor, and availability all come together in a nice package.

From bear pong to baseball games to the dinner table, this is one of the most drinkable and afordable american lagers. Light enough to spend your night with a case of it, yet satisfying enough to enjoy just one glass.... I love this beer!

I think this beer is a great mix of taste and affordability. It won't blow you away, but is a solid drinkable lager that can readily be found from Northern NJ through Central PA through Northern VA. Pick up a 6 pack and toss a few back.

I believe this is the very best beer based on taste and value. For 15 bucks you can get a case and its a hell of a lot better than Sam Adams or New Castle Brown. This is the oldest brewery in America and there is a reason this is still around after 175 years

A most flavorful and drinkable bee. Best Traditional Lager on the East Coast.

Slightly sweet with a good malty taste. Dark amber in color with a smooth flavor and a smooth finish. The aroma is moderate and it goes down smooth. Better than Amber Bock, my popular beer favorite, and nearly as good as Alaskan Amber and Moosedrool.
