COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Being from the Coal Region in PA, where this is made, I grew up drinkin this stuff. Its by far my favorite beer and the only reason I dont drink it more often is because I am a struggling college student.

Frothmeister (578) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
12 fl oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with a light beige head. Sweet dusty malt notes, white bread, and a light mineral scent on the nose. As for taste, more body on the palate than I was expecting, but sweet with caramel, domestic beer notes galore, into a taste that makes me think of the smell of pencils, VERY light bitterness, and some orange pekoe in the finish. Not awful, but too sweet for a return visit, and tastes far too much like a domestic lager to get excited about.

eduardovl (929) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 25, 2014
330ml served in a pint glass. A: Pours a clear amber color forming a small white bubbled with low retention and practically no lacings left in the glass. S: Very malty. Mix of sweet pale malts and caramel malts. Notes of corn. Flowery hops. T: Sweet malts upfront. Slightly sweet taste. Notes of corn and cardboard. A bit metallic. Moderate bitterness. Grassy hops profile. M: Light body and moderate carbonation. Malty and a bit grassy aftertaste. O: Medium drinkability. Not impressive Lager

This beer is a lager. It’s not meant to be special. It’s meant to be your every day beer. For that purpose it is one of the best in the world, in my opinion. Many people expect something exotic now that it has reached the vast reached of the USA. Others feel it has the watered down effect of mass production. Those are the same people who think every microbrew is a good beer. Actually, most american microbrews are mediocre at best but continue to receive inflated opinions by naive drinkers who dont know better. This beer, however, is an American legend for serving as the best plain ’old lager in the country.

12oz can, from the can, has aromas of wheat, corn, and subtle hops. Flavor is pretty good.

had this on draft in NY...unremarkable but not bad in any way. i’d say it’s your average session lager for those not wanting to branch out and try new styles."

Surprisingly good for a regular logger of its elk has little bit of taste to it but still overall suffers from the mass production
