2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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...

There's something unique about Americas oldest independent brewer...I think it's toasted.

Look: pours a dark amber. Small head that doesn't stick around long.
Smell: dark fruits. Apples, cherries.
Taste: very fruity. Heavy malt.

Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Think John brought a few of these and just left them in out room. Orange pour with a short lived white head. Slight toasted grain and some decent bready malt. Slight soap, grass, and spice. Flavor is pleasantly sweet, though a bit watery. Some bread, grain, and a little sugar. Soapy hops and mild bitterness. Slight bitterness. Crushable.

Basic American lager. It has a light to medium body and is somewhat refreshing but with largely cereal characteristics. I know a bit more about beer these days, but when I was still a "lager-lover" this was my go-to brew.

This isn’t a bad beer, but by no means great. This is perfect when funds are low...a good lawnmower beer. Better than all those other mass produced beers. Way better in the can than the bottle.

On tap at Ledo. Thanks Justin! Pours a clear light yellow, with quickly fading head that left moderate lacing. Aroma is overall mild, and is mainly lager sweetness with slight toasted malt notes. Flavor is simple lager, with a corn sweetness. Thin body, sweet finish. Amazing to think that I bought this by the case when I lived in Philadelphia.

Pours a nice clear amber color with off-white head. Cereal grains and some malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Decent, but average.
