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.

Dacrza (863) - 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...

0.33 Flasche. Normales Bier, nichts spezielles. Wobei eine gute Alternative zum Pils in USA! Leicht würzig hopfig, süßlich.

Used to think it was good, but recently didn’t enjoy it according to Untappd. First time reviewing it. Poured a reddish brown amber color with two fingers of grayish frothy head. Could see a few bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Minimal foggy lacing. Average retention. (Sight - 3.25) Smelled boozy lager notes up front, followed by roasty malts, nuts, amber malts, toasted caramel, toffee and plum. (Smell - 3.25) Tasted a touch better than the nose. Nutty malts, caramel, roasty malts, toffee and plum. (Taste - 3.50) Medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Roasty finish. (Feel - 3.25) This was an OK beer when reviewing it. I may have underrated it just at ad. (Overall - 3.25) 3.35 77 B-

From bottle. Clear golden color with little to no head. No lacing. Sweet but otherwise characterless aroma and taste. Thin medium-bodied. Little or no hop character. Rather plain.

Bottle. Actually quite awesome for what it is. Smooth, balanced, traditional. For a lager with this old of tradition it's quite impressive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a wonderfully traditional beer. It is not meant to be the highest quality beer, but to be the reasonably priced blue collar beer. Much better on tap than in the bottle, however this is true for most beers. If I had my pick this is what I will usually go for. On another note, some of these reviews seem to be for the light version and not the original lager. The clear straw color is Yuengling light, not the lager. The lager pours a darker caramel color

En fin pilsner lidt som en clasic øl type. Fin smag uden for meget bitterhed.

After 8 hours of driving we finally arrived at the hotel and they had this on tap. Rating might be off because it is free.
