Neighbor down the road is absolutely in love with this brewery so much as to drive twenty miles south to stock up on it for the weekend. Thanks Andy. I'll give it a shot.

Look - From the bottle. Top pops to let ya know it's fresh to death. Pours a urinated golden with a thick frothy white head that actually retains exceptionally well and leaves a fair bit of stick. Well that's new for the style.

Smell - I tried. I really did. I've had more light lagers than I can count and I must sit here and say upon a dozen whiffs without even a hint of a stuff nose or a cigarette smoked in around an hour I find nothing but the faintest presence of hop.

Taste - A bit more flavor than scent. Slight hop kiss with an apparent malt that dominates. Fresh bottle so I'm not really sure what's going on here.

Feel - Dead to low carbobation with a moderately thick though watery body.

Overall - Super inoffensive and doesn't really have a flavor. Honestly I can't hate it. Light lagers are meant to taste like nothing and be drank as quickly as possible. So rating purely to style, this one is so clean you could run a computer chip factory in the bottle. Great for pounding. However is would feel morally wrong for me to give this a really high rating due to the facts of the beer. So I'll give what I feel comfortable with.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. No freshness dating, but since i bought it a mile from the brewery....

heavily carbonated, very pale yellow body, small white head, light lacing.

corny aroma, faintly yeasty, mostly a rather unpleasant chemical smell.

to be honest, there isnt much of a flavor at all. tastes watery.

thin on he mouth, a faint bite under the tongue.

overall, it is what it is. i only bought a single because after 25 years living in pottsville, this was the only one of their beers i'd never tried. (damn you ocd!) i get drinking light beers for calories, but to be honest, any flavored water would be preferable than slamming these all night.

A really drinkable mass produced light beer. Cheap and good with wings or burgers.
