I admit, I was drawn to this because it was 10.99 for an 18 pack of 16oz cans and i was low on cash. Pours a bright clear gold with fizzy white head. Aroma actually has some nice sharp grassy notes. Flavor likewise is surprising. Some level of grainy malt to the base as well as some grassy hop notes in the finish. Overall, probably the finest super cheap beer I’ve had.

Golden color with a white head that all but disappears. Grainy aroma. Very smooth, slightly sweet flavor. Nice soft mouthfeel. No detectable hops - odd in a pilsner, but still a pleasant surprise. Lowe1983 (1632) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2009
Pours a golden color with a white. Aroma is of sweet malts, grains, and some floral hops. Flavor is pretty light with the grains up front. Crisp finish with some floral hops. Tmoney99 (14973) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2009
Bottle from Party Source.
Poured a clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium sweet malty and grainy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture with soft carbonation. Moderate sweet flavor with an medium sweet finish of moderate duration.
My expectations where met. Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear, pale yellow-gold with a fizzy, small white head. Grainy malt aroma with almost no hops. Flavor is very sweet, bready, some caramel and sugary syrup, some weak earthiness, faint bitterness towards the finish. Light in body, average carbonation. Gotta drink this fella quick - warmth really brings out the worst here. Not terrible overall but there are better pale lagers for sure.

Stegmaier sixteen ounce returnables have resurfaced in Philadelphia. My local distributor carries them for $12.99 a case. Steg has a ricey aroma, gold color and fair lacing. The flavor was a decent beer with surprising maltiness to it. You could enjoy this in mass quanitities. DarkElf (3066) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 28, 2005
(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) Pouring a bottle of beer and then watching the result can be one of life’s simple pleasures. This beer pours a bright straw color and is fully clear, so the frenzied movement of the bubbles during the pour was clearly visible. And for several minutes, hundred of bubbles have formed down low on the side of the glass and then rushed to the top to contribute to the tall, creamy, and long-lasting white head. I can just sit here and gaze at this for awhile, eyes unfocused but taking it all in. But I’ve done that for a few minutes, so it’s time to move on. This beer smells sweet and grainy, and just not aromatic or pleasant enough to be a factor in whether I want to taste this beer or not. Flavor is lightly grainy, only mildly sweet, and lacking any hops that I can detect. It doesn’t taste bad, just really weak, and the body is very light and somewhat thin as well, but nicely carbonated. But yet the carbonation bubbles keep coming, the head is still fully covering the beer, and thick, dense lace is now covering much of the glass. In the end, regardless of the beauty it is in the glass, I’m just not caring much for actually drinking this beer. But I’d say this is a positive alternative to BMCs if you’re into that sort of thing. jredmond (8645) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours clear golden body with small white head that vanishes instantly. Aroma is malts but very light. Smooth body with a bitter finish. Maybe some alcohol as well. Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2005
I though this was another pale lager at first, certainly looked like it.
This is a little bland, and by that, I mean it has only a little more taste than water. Which is about 10x more taste than other beers in its price category (I’m looking at you BMCs, ESPECIALLY Anheuser World Select, you are horrible)
A solid cheap sixpack purchase if you just want a knockaround beer and don’t feel like going for one of the big boys beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2006
This is an average but pleasant brew that I have sampled on and off for almost 30 years. Very good value for the price. If you have the option of picking up Steg vs. the macro brew swill, go for the Steg without question.
