triplehopped (53) - - DEC 30, 2012
Pours clear amber with a light, white head. Delivers a subtly sweet aroma and matching taste. A light body with average carbonation makes for a non-offensive yet satisfying feel on the palate. Overall, a great lager for any occasion.

12 fl bottle present from the USA-Pennsilvania,the color is a clear dark orange with a large white head that fades somewhat guickly and the aroma blends caramel and bread malts with dough yeast.

sudomorph (927) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2015
12oz can. Pours a clear caramel with a thin head that fades to nearly nothing. Aroma has hints of sweet grain, and faint glances of traditional hops. Taste is balanced and mild. Grains, traditional spicy/earthy hops, and a short aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall very standard and non offensive. Not that good but drinkable by all.

It pours like Yuengling and smells like it too. Itís not "craft". But itís the oldest brewery in America goddammit. Drink it and like it!

Sjohnh (474) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2015
On cask at a well known Florida theme park. Surprisingly good. Itís copper coloured with a decent head. Light body with good carbonation. Malts supply caramel and toffee while the hops give a touch of apricot.

StueyD (1465) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2015
A mid Amber coloured beer with a weak white head. The aroma is light, floral and fruity. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is quite fruity and floral, the fruitiness giving a touch of bitterness that the floral hop balances out, with the help of a background maltiness. A short finish. Draught @ Arthurís, Hoboken, New Jersey.

Worsenma (46) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2015
It is what it is. However, if I'm going to have a traditional lager this is the one I'm having. Pretty good for a Pilsner type lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jow (2740) - New York, USA - JUL 10, 2015
My first job after college I moved to philly area a place Iíd never been and knew no one. My boss told me this was the beer all Pennsylvanians drank Iíd never heard of. 12 years later my father inlaw stocks this plenty and I always drink a few and finally decided to rate after probably hundreds of them under my belt. Light Brownish pour. Nose is grassy some malt. Tastes of malt, grass, caramel, cardboard. Thin watery.

Padron4KM (689) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 24, 2015
12 oz green bottle. Clear amber, soapy tan head that dissipates pretty quickly, leaving very little lace.
Caramel malt and cereal grains dominate the aroma. Flavor is sweet caramel, with the slightest hint of hops. Not offensive, but not very memorable either.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2015 This is a re-rate. I had it from the bottle. Itís a light amber color. The taste is a hint of caramel and malt. Itís crisp and refreshing. If it?s nice and cold, it?s decent and inoffensive. You certainly could do worse.
