This really is a Budweiser killer. A real German lager, not heavy or remarkable, but without the watery, low malt seltzer appeal of Bud in a can. Very consistent, even though I haven't lived in PA for 25+ years, every year have a couple of cases brought back when family visits. Solid cookout beer, good to server your close friends.

L: A bit darker and more beery than the big red, white and blue beer. Decent head on pour, moderate bubble size, attractive without exceptional quality.

S: Like most, a bit skunky by the time I get it, but not bad, and after a minute or two good beer smells, bit of hops, bit of malt. Lets you know you are drinking beer.

T: Solid day drinker. Nothing you sit around a discuss with friends, but not drain pour. No exceptional pairing, goes pretty well with pizza or burgers.

F: Thin as expected. A quick drinking beer, not one to force you to ponder it.

O: Again, you gotta give some thing a bit more than the average of their parts. the experience of the beer, and the consistency and the history of the brewery, rate a 4 in my book.

L- The beer pours a crystal clear amber with a fluffy 2 and a half finger white head. The head recedes to a thin ring leaving spotty lacing behind.
S- The nose is restrained, but made up primarily of malt sweetness.
T- Similar to the nose. Primarily a lightly sweet caramel presence. Hops restrain the sweetness to a point, but are ultimately overwhelmed. A bit of metallic undertone from the can detracts slightly.
F- Mouthfeel is light bordering on watery. Carbonation is moderate a prickly. A beer designed to be consumed in multiples.
O- A better beer on draft than from the can. As large mass produced lagers go this one is high up on my list with SA Boston Lager. A good choice where craft options are limited.

This is a drinkable, but not exceptional lager. Good beer for when you are having more than one and a good change of pace beer when you need a break from some heavy IPA....First time rating it, had it many times before...

Served from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass at House of Brews (46th St).
A: Pours a clear, copper color with a one inch, off white head with good retention and modest lacing.
S: Very little nose. A little swampy, truthfully. Shouldn't be served in a green bottle.
T: Very limited caramel flavor with equally limited, albeit offsetting bitterness.
M: Light to medium bodied. Low to medium carbonation.
O: This is a drinkable, if not exceptional dark lager. I have had it many times in the past. First time rating it and I am a little less impressed than I thought I would be if honest.

This is a very easily drinkable lager with lots more flavor than others of a similar style. Good balance regarding the malts and hops (given the style) and a crisp finish. Goes very nicely with food.
