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.

Bottle. Pours dark amber. Aroma of malts. Tastes smooth. Definitely no complexity but would always choose this before a Bud or Coors.

In pils glass, draft. Almost no head and no lace, light amber. A slight wheat aroma. Taste is also of wheat. Hard to pick up hops, finish is weak as is overall taste. Of the American mass produced beers this may be one of the better ones, not saying much, and going to a party I always hope to at least get this.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 Remember drinking this in my youth when I grew up in NY. Of course during a Florida trip it’s on tap everywhere. Sort of whale for the west coast I guess. Not a great beer but a ton of east coast transplants certainly reminiscent over it. Had it poured at a couple of beach bars while visiting the Space Coast. Poured reddish amber. Some skunky tones along with grains. Hardly any bitterness. Although as it warmed I certainly picked up some buttered caramel diacetyl notes. Could this be mistreatment of the lines? Well, it is what it is.

Duft av malt . Lys mørk farge. Noe skum som forsvinner raskt. Frisk smak, noe søtlig men ikke mye.

The Pennsylvania equivalent of the West Coast’s Henry Weinhardt’s Private Reserve. A very basic lager, but with way more flavor and depth than Budweiser. Has an annoyingly metallic flavor, but not bad if you are out of money and want to drink a few brewskis at a party.

Nice for a lager, which is not quite my favorite style. Smooth and a little sweet. Nothing at all offensive.

Pushes the borderline between macroswill and microbrewery. Mix a Bug Light with a high-quality brew, and I'd expect it to taste like this. Probably good to give as gifts to friends that haven't yet disocvered beer beyond BMC, but don't bother buying it for yourself.

bottle: im surprised by the ratings here. this is your average lager. could be a notch of the huge macros. but not much better. bland taste thin watered down beer with not much going on except a bad aftertaste. stay away from it kids, there are many other that are better.

Totally missed the boat on this thing, I guess. Wow, nothing really here. Nice dark color, but that’s about it. Smells of rice and corn or something like that. I feel like I’m drinking a lager dropped in a farmyard.

Use to be hard to come by, now it’s everywhere. Really liked it at first, now all I get is a strange sweet taste out of it, not too enjoyable.
