From bottle. Clear golden color with little to no head. No lacing. Sweet but otherwise characterless aroma and taste. Thin medium-bodied. Little or no hop character. Rather plain.

Bottle. Actually quite awesome for what it is. Smooth, balanced, traditional. For a lager with this old of tradition it's quite impressive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a wonderfully traditional beer. It is not meant to be the highest quality beer, but to be the reasonably priced blue collar beer. Much better on tap than in the bottle, however this is true for most beers. If I had my pick this is what I will usually go for. On another note, some of these reviews seem to be for the light version and not the original lager. The clear straw color is Yuengling light, not the lager. The lager pours a darker caramel color

En fin pilsner lidt som en clasic l type. Fin smag uden for meget bitterhed.

After 8 hours of driving we finally arrived at the hotel and they had this on tap. Rating might be off because it is free.

Cajun (459) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - AUG 2, 2016
Bottle (green) - Pours medium amber, white head. Aroma of malt, slightly skunky. Biscuit. Lightly hopped. Malt presence. More like an amber/Vienna.

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2016
0,33 bottle from a gas station. - Generic malty aroma, slightly spicy hops. It has a good, well balanced pilsner flavor, more malt than the rest of the american lagers. Good, but not as good as most european lagers.

Msdrbeat (616) - East Lansing, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Bottled. A pretty decent lager. Amber color with white lacing. Not too wheaty or malty. A good macro.

Wedding reception at Spring Manor winery. More malty than your traditional pale lager, closer to a Vienna. Amber body, sweet malt nose. Taste is more sweetness, possibly due to some adjuncts. Not horrible, but a bit cloying.
