Had this last week for the first time. Deep golden color. Wonderful nose, a really nice aroma. Pours a thick, rich, creamy head. A truely beautiful beer. Then you taste it! VERY DISAPPOINTING! Little flavor. Drinks like a light beer. Only slight hoppyness. Almost no after-taste. Watery. If this beer tasted as good as it looked it'd be the greatest American beer ever. It's not.

I think this beer is a great mix of taste and affordability. It won't blow you away, but is a solid drinkable lager that can readily be found from Northern NJ through Central PA through Northern VA. Pick up a 6 pack and toss a few back.

This was one of the few "new" beers to be found in Florida panhandle liquor/beer stores. Just your basic everyday lager, with a touch of floral hoppiness and a refreshing character. Another decent campfire beer for sipping in between tastes of a few belgians (from a plastic glass, I must add).

Amber in color with a thin off-white head that leaves barely any lace. Barely any hops. It was comparable to drinking colored water. It stayed well-carbonated, which may have been its only good attribute...besides its color, which is nice as well. I used to drink this beer a lot....but I now remember why I stopped.

Boy, moving from Anheiser Busch to Yuengling... err, I mean from St Louis to PA, is a nice change. As far as macro brews go, this is one of the better ones... certainly beating the pants off any AB products that you can buy anywhere. Aroma is a littel grainy and sweet. Appearance-wise, you might actually think this was beer rather than urine. Nice amber color, small head that disappears. Flavor is sweet and watery with definite grain sweetness. Refreshing, but not substantial.

Golden yellow. Bitter with a slight aftertaste. If all there is to drink is light beer and this, pick this.

Pours an amber color with a thin white head. Tastes very watery, some maltyness. Just not much here.

Not much exciting going on here other than the fact that it is the worlds oldest brewery. Otherwise tastes like a macro lager with a little more bitter bite on the back side.

On tap. Poured gold with orange highlights. The head was white and thin. No lacing to speak of. The aroma was mostly hops with nothing special really standing out. The flavor was fairly one-dimensional with hops dominating. The mouthfeel was sub-par as the aggressive carbonation and bitter finish left, well, a bad taste in my mouth. I think this one gets the "Over-rated! clap-clap-clapclapclap" award of the day.

From 12 oz can. Poured gold color with small white head. Very simple and not much on flavor. Alright if you want a beer and only have 10 minutes to drink it.
