Pretty decent lager. Tried in 2010 after the graduate conference there. Golden and somewhat dry. Effervescent and crisp. Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2012
Clear amber color, thin head, malty with low carbonation. On tap in a couple joints in station square in pitt. nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Thanks to my good beer buddy Big D., for this one (actually 6 of them). The brewery recently moved from their longtime Lawrenceville home to Latrobe (the old Rolling Rock Brewing). I was told by several people that the beer taste different. After trying a few bottles, I have to admit the beer has a crisper, cleaner taste to it. I was told that the recipe hasn’t changed. The beer’s original recipe was to copy Yuengling Larger was it was in its height of popularity. Augustiner doesn’t leave the aftertaste in the beer. It’s worth the try!

Lightly carbonated honeyed brass color with a thin, viscous head. Soft grain nose, whiffs of honey malt, and feint crisp hopping. I am pleasantly surprised at this one. For the low ABV% and considering the style, this packs a fine amount of flavor. Honey malted, crisp grain finish with just enough balancing hops. Thoroughly well-balanced and sessionable. Ranks very highly on the shortlist of top amber lager. Perhaps the poorer sister to Yuengling lager. The sum is more than the parts. An enjoyable lager. jcr (2779) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle. Clear, amber body with thin white head that rapidly diminishes. Notes of caramel, toasted grain, grass and nuts in the aroma along with hints of corn, canned vegetables and sulphur. The flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Light to medium body, thin, watery texture and soft carbonation. Just short of drainpour, the vegetable notes in the aroma and taste, though slight, were enough to overshadow some of the better qualities — like the caramel and toast in the aroma.

bought a six pack of mixed domestic beers. I drank this one immediately after drinking Bud Select (not a fan) and I was so happy to be drinking this.
A- typical golden lager color with a white head that fades.
S- nothing special. hard to detect. malt.
T- highly unoffensive. clean finish.
O- this is pretty drinkable. I wasn’t craving another when I was done but I would drink it again.

Bought because it was $4.99 for a six-pack of bottles at a corner shop in Burlington, VT. Not terrible, kind of salty malt-ness to the flavor and almost no head-retenetion (as with most "cheap" lagers). Overall, it’s a good beer to have after you’ve had too many to appreciate good beer.

What? Moody? This beer is so thoroughly mediocre it’s ridiculous. Only tolerable partially frozen. BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2009

Aroma: Light lager aroma with a good malt backing.
Appearance: Light Amber in color, clear with a thin head.
Flavor: Light lager flavoring the hops and alt where balanced very well.
Palate: Dry finish, with a decent Mouthfeel.
Overall: A very nice easy drinking beer. Perfect for those hot days mowing the lawn.
I am highly impressed with this pale lager. definitely head and shoulders above it’s style. Good pour, there is a little sweet and in general it just out performs others in it’s style.
