Dacrza (798) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2013
DATE TASTED: August 24, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. pilsner glass... OCCASION: last revisiting the old classic...had too much at cousin Missy’s wedding last night--cheers...APPEARANCE: uneven, variably sized bubbles lodge and flutter in a brown-orange body; two-finger head settles to an off-white iced tea head that does not lace... AROMA: scents of peanut and toasted bread in the malty profile; hops provide little other than some funky undertones...PALATE: like medium-bodied, this begins with some strength but ends oily in the throat; aftertaste more than lingers...TASTE: definite bread amid vegetable elements; a bit of bubblegum too... OVERALL: a Northeastern PA sessions staple--one can order by simply saying "lager" in most establishments; this profiles as a beer with a strong odd-tasting dimension; relatively easy-drinking and very affordable, the lager ranks above mass-marketed faux pilsners but below many craft lager offerings; the label reminds us this beer was pioneered when colors (amber, in this case) were the distinguishing aspect of the industry...

Wedding reception at Spring Manor winery. More malty than your traditional pale lager, closer to a Vienna. Amber body, sweet malt nose. Taste is more sweetness, possibly due to some adjuncts. Not horrible, but a bit cloying.

Zymurgeist2 (1695) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Draught at Jet Rock Bar and Grill in Terminal B of PHL. Clear copper with white head that is pristine and leaves full lacing. Crisp malt and harsh bitter finish.

generallee08 (770) - New York, USA - JUN 21, 2016
It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: It has a bright yellow colored body with very good clarity and visible carbonation rushing up to bright white head. The head is light and soapy. It quickly settled down to a wispy thin film covering. Smell: The aroma is light and cereal like with a faint floral hops in the background. Taste / Palate: The flavor is light and clean. It’s has cereal and light grain like notes with a light floral and grassy hay like hops. It feels light and refreshing with balanced carbonation.

I have never run into this until my visit to Florida, though I’ve heard all about it dating back to high school history class. Fun to finally try. Twist off green bottle at the hotel. Darker in color. Cool, fresh, refreshing lager with a hint of sweet malt. A good cool down beer, and much preferred over the competition.

Af at være Amerikas ældste bryggeri må man forvente de har lært at brygge øl. Men.... Deres lager er lettere sur i det, næsten ingen humle, og så er der ikke den smag af korn eller frugt som der sommetider er i lager-øl.

May 10, 2016 - can at SeaWorld. Seemed like an amber pour with nice amount of head that lasted for a bit. Aroma and taste of grain, malt and mild bitterness.

On tap at Quaker Steak & Lube PIT. Deep copper with a small white head that lasts ans leaves good lace. Nose is mostly caramel with slight floral hop. Taste is light+ sweet caramel with minimal bitterness. Medium- mouth with average carbonation and a crisp finish. OK. 5/3+/5-/3/10

Pours an amber brown. Nose has some malt, some carmel. Taste follows suit. A slight bit of roast, some carmel. Smooth mouthfeel and slightly crisp finish. Drinkable, but not special.
