Poured into a pint glass. No freshness date.
This beer is very popular from where I live, so I figured I would give it a chance.
Pours a fizzy head that doesn't last too long. Color is a clear straw yellow.
It is definitely a light beer that doesn't pour much of a head. There really is no presence of hops. Just a big grain flavor with some corn.
Mouthfeel is crisp with a lighter bodied. Higher amount of carbonation.
Overall this beer doesn't have much going on, but it is a local favorite. It doesn't cost that much which is nice and you can drink a few without filling up.

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.
