Poured a 330ml bottle into a Shaker pint glass.

A- pours a light and clear gold with about one finger of almost creamy white head. The head lingers on but doesn't leave any lacing.

S- some sweet notes of malt or bread. But more or less non-descript

T- Again, some malty sweetness but very little else. No depth and nothing distinct about it.

M- not bad. A nice fuller feeling, not watered down. A nice hint of carbonation

O- not the best but certainly not the worst

Used to drink it a lot, in some particular bars a long time ago. Let’s see how it goes now.
Pale yellow color with a decent head with medium retention.
Aroma of corn and pale malt, and notes of vanilla. I would not say it is pleasant.
Refreshing and crisp taste, strong corn taste and very light floral hops. Buttery aftertaste.
Light body with a good carbonation.
After so many years, I now erased completely the good old impressions over it. It is really an average or even bad brew, you have to drink it freezing cold and ignoring its aroma.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a clear golden straw color. A fizzy white head recedes to a light film. Very minimal lacing. The aroma is lightly sweet with grains and barley coming through. The taste is somewhat sweet with a cereal-like grain taste. The finish is faintly tangy, but carbonated. Mouthfeel is spry and clean. Overall, this is a good clean refreshing adjunct lager and the price is decent. Disappointed to see it being brewed in Lateobe, PA.
