For an Amercian lager this one is at least drinkable. Not great, but drinkable. A richer color than most and a better malt flavor without the skuniness found in many of USA’s worst lagers.

Thanks for this bottle to teddybeer. Pours amber with a white head. Grainy taste and aroma. I enjoyed this one with some crisps and it worked well.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2003 This beer has all the best characteristics of several other bland american standards.
Appearance = Coors Extra Gold.
Aroma = Coors Light
Flavor = Somewhere between Budweiser and Original Coors.
Palate = Miller Light
This is "America's Oldest Brewery"? I guess this is a testament to the average American's affection toward flavorless beer brewed with lots and lots of adjuncts.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer is apparently really big in PA/NJ but you don't really see it in my neck of the woods. Clear dark amber with a thin beige ehad that disappears quickly. Very thin lacing. Light hoppy aroma. Light-bodied and crisp with a mildly bitter hops flavor. The finish tells me that this is not a beer you should let sit for a long time before drinking. Overall I'd say "drinkable" about sums this beer up.

Surprisingly quaffable, for a macro lager, especially at the end of a hot day, with few beer choices at an official function. Assertive carbonation,
