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.

Like the history but the beer is anything but historic

More of a Chesterfield man myself. After a long day in a suit I was anxious for liquid relief. Okay, I admit I was drinking at the reception, but there was a visit with a great aunt after it. Too sweet for my taste. Just like I remembered it - watery, sweet, of tasting, just in the realm of palatable, but not by far. So glad to be done with it, out the door and off to better fare.

If you are from Pa this is the party beer. Everyone will drink it and enjoy it. It's not bad but, far from great. One of the best macro's for sure. I hate the green bottles, had 1 to many skunked. Had quite a few that were flat too.

Had this last week for the first time. Deep golden color. Wonderful nose, a really nice aroma. Pours a thick, rich, creamy head. A truely beautiful beer. Then you taste it! VERY DISAPPOINTING! Little flavor. Drinks like a light beer. Only slight hoppyness. Almost no after-taste. Watery. If this beer tasted as good as it looked it'd be the greatest American beer ever. It's not.

I think this beer is a great mix of taste and affordability. It won't blow you away, but is a solid drinkable lager that can readily be found from Northern NJ through Central PA through Northern VA. Pick up a 6 pack and toss a few back.

This was one of the few "new" beers to be found in Florida panhandle liquor/beer stores. Just your basic everyday lager, with a touch of floral hoppiness and a refreshing character. Another decent campfire beer for sipping in between tastes of a few belgians (from a plastic glass, I must add).

Amber in color with a thin off-white head that leaves barely any lace. Barely any hops. It was comparable to drinking colored water. It stayed well-carbonated, which may have been its only good attribute...besides its color, which is nice as well. I used to drink this beer a lot....but I now remember why I stopped.

It’s local and cheap, overall not too bad for the price. The problem I see with it is there’s no consistency to their brewing it’s either good or terrible.

Skunky smell, straw color with no head. Weak flavor with disappointing aftertaste. Better than the traditional macros but nothing to write home about

Boy, moving from Anheiser Busch to Yuengling... err, I mean from St Louis to PA, is a nice change. As far as macro brews go, this is one of the better ones... certainly beating the pants off any AB products that you can buy anywhere. Aroma is a littel grainy and sweet. Appearance-wise, you might actually think this was beer rather than urine. Nice amber color, small head that disappears. Flavor is sweet and watery with definite grain sweetness. Refreshing, but not substantial.
