Not a lot of depth but easily drinkable with a slight hint if maltiness and cream. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From old tasting notes. Medium gold color. Lots of bubbles leading to a creamy white head. Big sweet malty aroma. Light sweet grainy malt flavor has fruity notes. Finish is flat and listless.

I have not had this beer in 30 years. So as I enter a tavern in Colonial Williamsburg on vacation I was shocked to see it, let alone learn it is the number one seller. It was a local PA coal miner beer now a celebrity. Cool to see it and ok to drink. I told friends back home about the story and got headshakes and puzzled looks. Not even readily available in their own backyard. I guess it’s fun to be somebody else when your out of town.

Bottle from Wine Seller in Williamburg, VA. Poured hazy gold with white head. Nose was biscuity pale malt, mild hops and fruit. Tasted pretty solid on the palate, with creamy pale malt, backup hops, and some lactic frutiness at mid-palate. This one is decent.

Draft: Mild corn nose. Hazy amber, thin head. Corn, lemony tartness. Finishes with a pleasant maltiness. Traces of butter. Pleasant mouthfeel.

Honey-like aroma and thirst quenching wet finish with sweet corn like flavor with flowery backdrop. Overall pretty watery but matches the style well and is helps when humidity is 100% and its a heat wave outside. Don’t think I ever rated a beer so low and gave it so many kudos.

used to love the beer and have been trying to locate it here on r.b. bought the stuff by the case in the brown cans and it was good beer and really cheap. i can remember years ago @ $7 a case. smooth with a nice malt and hop presence i consider this brand to be a major factor in peaking my interest in beer because it was superior in taste and body to all the other mass produced beers that are pretty much tasteless. mildly fruity satisfying and when i find it, guess i’m most likely gonna rate less beer in the future.

Also had this in Colonial Williamsburg. The name is a real odd one for a Lion brew. A decent cream ale, which is not that great of a style. Pretty smooth with a decent amount of hops.

Bottle. Bought a case with some good friends in N.Y. city and partied at a hotel along with a lot of SamAdams beers. Golden bit hazy colour with a nice average lasting sticky head. Malty and caramellic aroma and hops. Flavour is smooth and creamy, fruity hoppiness, caramel, good malts. Nice aftertaste! For a mass produced cream ale this brew is really tasty.

This is a good session beer especially at $12 for a case of 16oz returnables. There are some malt and a little hop flavor and the alcohol is not that well hidden.
