12 ounce clear bottle (which always worries me) poured into a mug.
A: Premium pours a golden color with a foamy white head that quickly settles to almost nothing. Carbonation consists of big bubbles, almost resembling that of soda. Darker in hue than most beers of this style.
S: Not much on the nose. Sweet, grainy malt, and that's about it. Some sweet pear aroma lies in the background.
T: Sweet at first, with some fruity notes, along with a slight hint of honey. Hops don't lend a lot in the taste, except for a slightly grassy flavor. Finish is clean and short-lived.
Notes: Premium is a decent beer with a little more body and flavor than others of the style have to offer. A bit too sweet for me, but sometimes it's just what's called for.

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.
