Had a glass at the Lancaster Brewing Company in Harrisburg. I would compare this in quality to Yuengling Lager. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of caramel malts and grain. It surprised me. It was a good pour.

At the brewpub in Harrisburg: pours deep gold with a white head. Aroma is bread, grain, and light hops. Bitterness up front with sugar in the back. OK.

Pours clear golden with a white head. Light malt aroma with herbal hops and some yeastiness. Flavor is light crisp malt with herbal and floral hops and a earthy, spicy, yeastiness.

Great solid lager - very balanced & great maltiness. Exactly what I expected from Thier Brew Master Bill Moore. He has been around for a long time and has always made a solid lager.

Great lager and natural finish. Well balanced and with good color and nice job with the aroma and appearance.

Draft. Staff explained it’s the same beer as the Litening Lager, they had to change the name because of a Cease & Desist. Clear golden color, white edge head. Aroma of peppery straw. Taste is straw and light lemon. Light body.

Tap. Pours pale good with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is cereal and bread malts, floral hops, lemon, and light grassy notes. Flavor is sweet malt forward with grassy notes, light citrus esters, and some faint floral notes; dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

BeerandBlues2 (13870) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Tap. Pours clear dark gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is Pils malt, earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness and a clean lager character with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

On tap at harrisburg brewpub smooth and light. Not a lot of malt sweetness. Bright hoppy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at GABF. Pours a pretty standard and very clear gold with stiff white head. Nose has faint herbal hops and a pretty robust malt profile, soft pilsner. On tasting, super clean and fresh. Soft malt profile that is the driving force with some pleasant light herbal hop notes. Quite enjoyable, if simple. Good balance and roundness. Nice!
