Being here in Pittsburgh where this stuff is brewed, I can usually get a fresh case or 6 pack .
I have noticed variations from batch to batch where some is more malty and lager-y and others are more sharp/metallic and bitter . A tad bit frustrating .
In any case, it's claimed to be a Vienna Lager style which would make me compare it to Great Lakes Elliot Ness which I feel is a superior example of the style .
A good overall thirst-quench brew but nothing to really shoot your load about or write home about .
The bitter hop sharpness turns me off, a bit but then again i'm not a bitterness/high-IBU guy like some are .
Good with Mexican food and most food, really. Perhaps its best attribute , good food pairing .
