Pours a pale yellow color. Smell is skunky, could be the green bottle. Taste is crisp, malts and grains, slightly sweet. Overall a pretty standard pale lager. PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle. At a Reverend Horton Heat concert. For an "unadulterated freshness" this beer sure smells like cat piss. Thankfully, the taste was a little better, a basic american domestic with a bitter finish. Bleh. Lithp (37) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2012 For an adjunct lager, this is pretty good. Miles and away better than the big three. Brewed with all natural ingredients and actually tastes like beer instead of water. MarkSachon (1010) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2012
From the 120z bottle at Empire Palace in Pittsburgh. A small and somewhat sentimental cult following has developed around this beer likely due to its marketing as a natural beverage made with wholesome ingredients. Poured into a glass apart from the famous green bottle it looks pasty and thin, and the flavors and taste deliver about the same. Higher levels of sweetness are also very recognizable. Not sure if it’s still true, but you used to be able to visit the brewery and drink from the tap off a chained metal mug. Sure hope they still have that freebie running.

Possibly the worst beer made in Pennsylvania today. Pours so clear from tap you’d swear it was water. No aroma to speak of. Tastes like corn era drainpour. Has a slightly astringent finish which makes no sense since it doesn’t taste like anything.

Straub is advertised as no additional additives or preservatives. Always on the fresh side. The beer is made only 2 hours from Pittsburgh. Crisp, clean, light and refreshing taste. There is some what, rice, and corn flakes. The taste has some other enjoyable notes of oats and other grains.. Sweet flavor in the finish. Very enjoyable for the summer. Again, affordable local beer. dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2011
Sadly micro brew and craft brew aren’t the same thing. This is a small companies version of bud light as far as I can tell. No nose whatsoever, looks like fizzy yellow beer. Little taste or palate to speak of. The numbers aren’t all "1" because it the lowest scores (in my mind) are reserved for things that taste BAD. This didn’t taste bad, it didn’t taste like anything.

Clear yellow color with a medium white head. Lot of carbonation. The flavor was kind of watered down with a slight grassy finish. Overall, not too bad. chicowv (478) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2011
12 oz can. Pours a light yellow with a white head and nice CO2 release. Aroma is like other pale lagers. Taste is mellow and balanced. Great session beer for those hot days. LetsGoState (874) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2010
UPDATED: APR 12, 2012 A very typical pale lager. All grains and a weak taste. The plus is that it isn’t skunky. Definitely drinkable, but not very complex.
