The first of seven received in a trade from Tastytaste.
Pours a very pale straw color, good sized head though. Leaves some decent lacing.
Aroma is straight corn. Takes me back to my Iowa living days.
Light bodied, some sweetness, some graininess. Not really that much to say about it.
Decent adjunct lager. I would drink this if it were a toss up between BMC and this, but wouldn't seek it out.
Thanks to Tastytaste for the sample.

Not going to lie, I'm a homer and this is the home town beer. Well, GBP and EPA are THE home town beers, but this is the original. It's a corny lager, not my favourite, but probably my second favourite. It's sort of sweet, which is my only complaint, but it's a nice sweetness. We like sweet here. Give me a Jucy Lucy and a Premo and some fries and I'm in fucking heaven. GBP is liquid history, a regional brand that somehow didn't get sucked into the multinational brewing conglomeration, a fucking time capsule. Your grandfather drank this beer. And so do his grand kids. I'm grateful for that and I'm proud that Pennsylvania and Minnesota somehow managed to keep the wolves at bay and retain their regional brewers (Schells in Mn's case, who keep the GB torch alight). A far from useful, but from the heart drunken review. You are welcome.
