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 (569) - 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...

I really enjoy this beer. It has a good flavor and appearance. It is one of the most popular beers among my friends too. The price is affordable. Good beer overall.

Malty pale lager with a slightly more substantial flavor profile than others in its class. There is some of the common trashy adjunct flavor in there and isn’t as clean or crisp as I like my pale lagers to be. Overall decent.

golden brown color, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, average carbonation. Overall, this is my favorite beer. Nice smooth taste, perfect for a dip in the Jacuzzi at 1 AM. but perfect for parties, dinner, or just to chill.

tompete (227) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2015
Pours a rich clear dark gold with a thin off white head. Aroma of thick rich malt, maybe a hint of dark fruit. Flavor is much more subtle than the aroma would imply. Very dry and crisp. Body is medium, very nice for such a dry beer. Finish is dry as well and perfectly balanced.

dekester1 (332) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Poured a mid amber with a nice head and lacing. This was the highlight. was decent mix of malts light fruity hops. Taste is a of malt, grains and mild fruity hops. Palate was decent. Overall, not a bad lager - very drinkable.

WonBall (15) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2015
My favorite domestic lager for years and years. For years I would get it fresh in central PA for best results, I’m a little uneasy with it coming north. Warm attractive aroma but not as much nose as I would like. Rather a small head. straightforward taste with a roasty, coffee touch. Goes down easily. Not enough lingering on the palate. A good beer for a hot thirsty man, for days when you want to just enjoy and not have to think about and analyse it. I buy six packs and cases but never let them last too long as I am suspicious about freshness here in New England.

Bottle from Liquor Mart in New York City September 2013. One of those beers that you at least have to try, and it wasn’t as bad as I expected.

Rodriguez (313) - Quito, ECUADOR - JAN 9, 2015
Light amber, almost no head, medium carbonation, grainy and light caramel flavor. Very sessionable, best than other pale lagers.
