Pennsylvania

2/5  rDev -19.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

This beer starts off promising, with a nice medium amber color, and impressive head, but then quickly subsides into a typical macrobrew. Quick malt rush quickly subsides into a cooked corn flavor. Finishes weak.

Very pale with a slight gold tint. Actually not bad head retention. Not much nose... Lots of added sugar and slight malt flavor, but of course no detectable hops what-so-ever.

2.5/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pale gold color, modest head, little lace or carbonation. Fresh aroma of grain and faint hops. Taste is refreshing, mild grain and hops, not enough malt for my taste, smooth finish; very clean on the palate. Not bad but not particularly notable either.

Massachusetts

3.35/5  rDev +35.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz gold and black trimmed can, blurb about how much is effort is put into making this beer on the can. Date on bottom does not tell if it is a packaging date or drink before date.

Appearance: Pale golden hue with a bright clarity, the white lace is wispy and lacks a little in retention. By the end of the glass the head was virtually gone.

Smell: Extremely clean to the nose, touch of fresh sweet husky grain and not much more than that.

Taste: Very crisp upfront, Light to moderate body. Crispness adds to the refreshing quality of this brew which in turn makes it that much more drinkable. Malt flavour is there even though it is on the thin side, lots of grain and mild husk flavours floating around. Nice snappy and straight to the point hop bitterness, clean and bitter without any harshness. The hops double up with the grainy character and clean the palate for more. Nice clean and balanced finish, not too dry but no cloying sweetness either.

Notes: Not too shabby for an American Lager, more flavour and character than most of the other big name lagers. Other than the malt being a bit thin this beer is a better pick in comparison to the bland lagers or skunky of the world.

Another favorite "cheap" or "lawnmower" beer of mine. Great iced down in the cooler on those hot, hot Summer days. Gotta love the 30 pak for $10 on sale where I live (NJ)
