The guy at my local beer store recommonded this one,why?Pours a light amber with almost no head to speak of,very thin body.The aroma was a little nicer a little sweetish and malty,the taste was a little watery with a malt smack in the finish that leaves a decent aftertaste.Not as good "Y" for sure.No more recommendations from the beer store guy for sure.

2.6/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Contract brewed for the Bucks County Brewing Company; the label reads "Pennbrook Traditional Amber Lager" - an obvious attempt to cash in on the immense popularity of Yuengling's Traditional Lager.

A rough pour will bring up a two-fingered head of off-white foam over a clear amber body. The head drops shortly to a creamy collar. The aroma is mildly malty and slightly earthy. The body is thin with a fine and moderate carbonation that leaves it lightly crisp on the tongue. The flavor, like the aroma, is limited with just a mildly sweet maltiness. It appears to be fairly well-attenuated, but finishes with a dull and sticky maltiness in the mouth. It seems that the bitterness has been heavily restrained to allow what sweetness the thin malt does have to come through. Some dextrine malt may be in use as well. As you progress through the glass the alcohol starts to develop on the palate. It's not that its level is high, it's just that there's very little malt (and even less hops) to mask it. It's quite boring, not well-balanced, and lacks drinkability due to the sticky finish - not recommended.
