This bottled brew from Traverse City, MI poured a small sized head of foamy white colored fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a good sheet lacing and a transparent carbonated light orange yellow colored body. The aroma was very mild with malty hoppy notes to it. The mouth feel was crisp and clean with a mild malty aftertaste. Very nice indeed. The mild malt hop flavor had a slight astringency to an otherwise pretty good brew. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Thanks to someone for sharing this at bu11zeye’s 10,000th tasting in April 2012. Very light yellow pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are nothing but grain and are not good. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. cheap (5858) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2008
White 12 oz can from a $14/24 case. A little more golden than I expected. Doesn’t smell bad, like most cheap lagers do. Taste is clean but slightly metallic and processed. At times it has a sort of unsweetened slaggy background. Good carbonation. Mild industrial finish, easily repeatable. Decent pale lager session brew. mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2012
can thanks to fratto. pale yellow with a white head. nose is corn, bland. easy on the palate, not much going on. Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2003
Malty and a little fruity aroma. Medium gold. Decent cheap regional. A little sweet, a little Saazy a little tart. Palate doesn't cling, medium-light body.

Bottle. Poured a small white fizzy head that mostly diminished with poor lacing, transparent, carbonated, and a yellow hue. Nose was malty and lightly hoppy. Flavor was sweet, malty, and lightly hoppy. Nothing outstanding. Tingly palate. Light body. Cavie (4718) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Can courtesy Fratto. Pours a clear light straw yellow color with a light bubbly head. Aroma is bready, sour grains, biscuit and tart notes. Flavor is bready, sour bready, and sweet. Grainy. Not great.

Golden copper color with a light rim head and no lace, light ascending carbonation bubbles. The taste is caramel malt cut toward the finish with harsh carbonation. Typical of big box beers, perhaps a little more going on. Probably good for slugging. nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2012
The aroma is watery and metallic with adjuncts and a touch of funk. The appearance is pale gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a pronounces maltiness. The palate is thin but OK. Overall the beer is almost undrinkable but has enough malt to keep it from being a drain pour. Frank (4194) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Homebrewers and oldtimers will sometimes talk about a style called a Classic American Pilsner--what American beer tasted like before the entire industry became dominated by three colossal corporate entities. This is what I always imagined it tasted like. The flavor was definitely tilted toward the hops a bit more than most cheap lagers and it actually had a discernible Saaz character. The carbonation was crisp and clean though there was maybe the slightest hint of metallic off note. I like it. I’’d buy this classic Pennsylvania brew more often if was available at my classic Illinois beer store.
