golden amber color with a medium head. the aroma is slightly sour and woody with some sweet notes underneath. the flavor is bitter, yet slightly sweet and malty with a good balnce of hops. tastes very similar to the mass produced beers we all love so much (HaHa)

Nothing better than average, and that is a stretch. This beer is definatly overrated. The aromaa is skunky the head is minimal and the flavor is in the same category as all of the macro lagers.

Dad always has this on hand when I see him in Pennsylvania. Wish he would pick a different Pa. brewery. In any event, some good maltiness, but there are hints of corn syrup in there that reveal its down-home vulgarity. However, its tough to hate this brewer.

Golden amber color. Thin spindly head. Malt, wheres the malt? If I were slumming this is what I would drink.

A nice smooth brew, pefect when icy cold. much better on tap than out of the bottle. Ordinary but satisfying

Little aroma, but better than average appearance for a beer in this category; hops are almost wholly missing, and malt side is quite plain; slightly over carbonated but quite drinkable; light to medium body and dry texture and aftertaste. On the plus side, this lager beats the major labels hands down, is fairly priced, and has a storied history. If memory serves, I like the kegged product a bit better. In any format, although this beer won't win any accolades, I'll continue to choose it over similar offerings from A-B, Miller or Coors.

A free bottle at a reception in PA. Blah. Only, it is Pennsylvania blah. Gassy and hollow. At least, not offensive.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2003 Amber color with decent white head (larger than I was expecting). Malty, diactyl flavor, actually has more flavor than other beers at this price. Going to school in Philly, we lived off this stuff, now its a treat when a friend's got it for free.

2.2
RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2003
Okay stuff, only moderately better than macroswill. Very metallic (from the can?) and light; not much taste. Gets a little sweet after 3 or 4 12oz. though, but without that nasty macro aftertaste.

2.2
wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2003
Pours amber with a nice white head. Mild aroma with a little skunkiness. OK Malt flavor with very little hops. Better than most macrobrews, but not real good.
