One of the best of American light beers. Love the 3.5% alcohol... makes for a good session Beer.

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.
