Ok, this won’t get stellar numbers, but for the price this stuff is as good as Schlitz. I was worried when I saw it was brewed at City (is that still true?). So it is fizzy yellow stuff, but a solid all malt type flavor, decent hoppiness to balance it away from being terribly sweet. I drank three pretty quickly and was still happy when the bill came.
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2017 Tap at Duque brewpup. Pours dark yellow and very hazy with a medium creamy white head. Interesting nose, light floral and herbal, with a quite yeasty and sour note. Taste is pleasently medium bitter with a solid sweet basis, however gets very bitter dry for quick moment. Flavor is more straightforward, herbal and floral, malty, notes of bread. Leaves a good bitter dry aftertaste. ganache (6089) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2017
Bottle. Nose sweet, grainy, dirty, floral, heavy corn – not unlike its IC brother, but not as clean. Pour yellow with a little hazy, some neon highlights but dull all around, head bright white but fizzes itself out in about fifteen seconds. Taste sweet, very low bitterness, weak and thin malt, heavy corn, medium-strong floral character. Medium body with a little spring in its step, I’d probably have it again.

Bottle - Sweet grains. Clear pale gold. Very sweet grains. Too sweet for me. mcberko (19837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Nose doesn’t taste very fresh at all, with cardboard and some herbal notes. Flavour is very cerealy, with cardboard and herbal notes. Pretty piss poor pilsner. BuckeyeBoy (8860) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 21, 2015
12oz bottle pours out straw color topped with a white head. Nose is corn and some grass. Taste is more of the grassy hops and some corn.

You could probably drink a dozen of these....but why? I mean you might as well pound 24 or 30 Blatz. Granted this junk could probably throw you under the bus with alacrity.....but Blatz will do the same for half the price. Duquesne Pilsner! You irrascible liquid of mayhem, I say to you: NEVER AGAIN. Drink a Blatz today...your liver will thank me tonight. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2014
(bottle - 12 oz) Pale gold pour with a white head. Light hop and grass aroma with some sweetness. Flavor is crisp and lightly sweet. Finishes mild. Really refreshing on a hot day. Braudog (6900) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle. Super light yellow, but really barely any color at all. Virtually no head at all either -- what little there is fades quickly. This drinks with a fairly simple construct ... light corny malt, but even-keeled ... light lager-ish hop finish. Clean, crisp, no offensive twists. But nothing more, nothing less than a good ol’ American beer. Darkmagus82 (2303) - - MAY 23, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 3-19-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a light to medium golden color with a billowy white head that faded very fast leaving little to no lacing.
Smell – The smell is mainly corn in nature, with just the slightest bit of citrus.
Taste – The taste is very similar to the smell. Mainly semi-sweet corn malt overall, but with a very slight citrus flavor detected at the end, which when mixed with the corn flavor leave a somewhat unpleasant taste in the mouth.
Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is light and somewhat watery with a higher level of carbonation.
Overall – Not really a great brew. Nothing about it is all that good and its likely one to pass over in the beer aisle. joejames (510) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Pours straw yellow. Little head, no lacing. Aroma of cereal grains. Tastes, again of cereal grains, very slight bitterness, Light body with moderate carbonization. Finishes a little sugary sweet. Not enough hops to be a pilsner but a little better than TV beers.
