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.
