Bought a 24 Pack for $11.99 last December. Yes, I bought it for nostalgic purposes. This isn't the worst beer I've ever had, but it is far from good. Tastes like apple juice with a little adjunct lager thrown in! Maybe it's just me, but it seems like all of the beers under the Pittsburgh Brewing Co. label all taste the same.

Straight from Can
All you expect a cheap American Adjunct Lager to be but slightly better than bud et al as a little more maltyness.
Enjoy it more as it is a nostalgic choice as not available in my current area or where I lived when first drank as it was the best cheap get drunk stuff in the mountains of West Virginia when rock climbing, caving and drinking by cabins years ago.
So when outdoors in the sun and you plan to drink a bunch while doing nothing or holding one while playing frisbee - this is a good choice.

24 fl oz. can (1 pint 8 oz.) with no apparent freshness date present. My first encounter with a can of this cheap swill, acquired at the local beer store for $1.99. Review #250 for me!
Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.
A - Pours two fingers of fluffy bright white head on top of a crystal clear, pale yellow straw colored body. Some carbonation bubbles rushing to the top & the faintest tiny sediment bits floating around. Fat sheets of lacing as the beer recedes.
S - Smell is better than expected, considering the style. Sweet dusty malt smell, slightest hop tinge, and some earthy / lemon grassy qualities to it. Not a bad nose for a cheap American adjunct lager.
T - Taste follows the nose. Crisp, sweet, earthy grains, and some lemony grass qualities present.
M - Feel is crisp & clean, with some fair carbonation and high drinkability.
Overall, definitely not the greatest beer to pass my lips, but in the realm of cheap sh**ty American adjunct lagers, this beer soars above some of the bigger brand names like Budweiser, Miller Lite, & Coors. I would liken this beer to what the Minhas Name Tag Lager tasted like. Unknown abv, but a highly drinkable beer with a more than affordable price tag.
