Review from notes taken visiting the brewpub this past summer. Hung out in Hershey Park, ate some chocolate, dealt with having to buy cases only when looking for beer and hit up this brewpub (not the one pictured, the other location).

soft copper color, not much smell. Soft and earthy malty taste. medium bodied and a smooth and easy drinker. not bad for a lager.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Served on tap into a huge mug.

A- pours a clear light amber with a one finger white head. Looks like beer...uneventful

S- bupkus. Maybe a hint of malt.

T- very light taste of malts...no hops at all. Boring...essentially, it tastes like...water? Yeah...unimpressive.

M- verrry light and thin. Next to no body at all. No depth at all.

D- its really drinkable, just because theres nothing to hold you back. Its...a light lager. What do you really expect?

Serving type: bottle

Pours a golden color with a good amount of fluffy white head.

There is not much to the scent, grains mostly.

The taste is of sweet, bready malts and grain.

Light bodied, crisp and sort of thin, adequate carbonation.

At first I thought this was pretty watery and too thin even for a light lager. But, as I drank more I discovered much more flavor and found a pretty tastey light lager.

(From Notes)

Had at Lancaster Brewery in PA.

Clear, pale-ish gold with a decent amount of carbonation, a bready, fruity scent with a thin, almost non-existant malt structure. A little bit of apple and lemon.

Thin, over-carbonated mouthfeel with an otherwise crisp taste. Doesnt have the consistency of a macro, but constructed like a macro otherwise, in that it has a sour, beery smell and taste.

Pretty bad, even for a light lager.

Had a glass at the Lancaster Brewing Company in Harrisburg.

I don't think it is of value to go to deep into the flavor etc.

It is a classic American Light Lager. Certainly a well executed beer for the masses. Significantly more malty/flavor that the mass market beers (Bud, Mller, Coors). Nice crisp finish, and the people I was with all enjoyed theirs.

So you have a well executed Light Lager. I think Lancaster did what they set out to do.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A: Translucent, light gold. Very little head, pure white. However, lacing is strong.

S: Sweet, vaguely honey.

T: Not very strong, but not watery, either. It's very sweet and malty.

M: Lightly carbonated, refreshing.

D: Very drinkable. Slight metallic aftertaste.

This would be a good alternative/ first beer for someone who commonly drinks macros.

Serving type: on-tap
