Being a native to Pennsylvania this beer is available on tap or in bottles/cans just about anywhere that sells beer. This is honestly some of the most over-rated piss-poor beers to be produced on a cellular level.
This beer only looks appetizing to drink... It has a gorgeous amber color to it but you can literally see right through it. Head is gone after 30 seconds or less.
To me I get the scent of corn and for some reason burnt hair, I get this regardless of any serving type. It could be on tap, bottle, can, you name it... It stinks to me.
The scent is similar to it's taste, like corn... And it kind of tastes like how a restroom at McDonalds smells in the summer time. It also leaves an off-taste of metal and fish when burped after consuming.
There is way too much carbonation going on in this beer. Depending on the glass this beer can often look like a watered down Cola of some sort.
This beer sucks something awful. When people bring cases of it to my house for parties, I make sure they take the leftovers with them!
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz can.
It pours an amber/gold with a fizzy white head that immediately dissipates and leaves no lacing.
The smell is reminiscent of an adjunct lager. Grain, cooked veggies, mineral water.
The taste is even more adjuncty, in fact i dk how this isn't an Adjunct lager, it is corny, with a certain saltiness to it. There is a thick mineral water flavor and then some malt flavor at the end.
The mouthfeel is watery.
At any rate, this is a crappy adjunct lager, nothing more.

Decided to give this beer one last try.
Just as I remember, but this time its out of an amber double deuce bottle, not a 12oz green glass abomination.
Nice deep gold appearance with a decent initial head. Not much lacing to speak of.
Smells like every other cheap, adjunct-filled, run of the mill macro lager.
Tastes mostly of corn up front, with a little sweet malt. Strange metallic/chemical flavor. Finishes with a slightly dry hop character. Terrible flavor overall. Funky weird corn adjunct is dominant.
Feel and body are average for the style.
By the time I approached the bottom of the 22 ouncer, I wanted to dump it. Finished it by sheer force of will.
This beer sucks; wouldn't ever buy it. Appearance is nice, but other than that it's absolutely undrinkable. I'm totally bewildered by it's cult-like following.
