This is okay as rated by BA. Nothing to get worked up about.

This is my go-to beer when I'm watching sports on TV and munching on Middleswarth BBQ chips. Not the best beer in the world but a little better than Yuengling's lager and cheaper than any craft beer you can buy.

I picked this up because I moved to philly. That's the only reason. Better than some macros but I'd really only drink this with some food and toward the end of the night. Mostly sweet malt character and quite carbonated. But... a six pack is like $7 in a city where most sixers are $15+

Cheap and perfect after a hot day mowing the lawn. One is good two is pushing it. Usually move to an excellent IPA.

Pottsville's finest.

The first time I tried this was over a hamburger and still think that's the best combination. Oh, it's not the greatest and certainly not the latest, but has been around long enough to earn it's place. Clean, crisp, amber color, light malt/hop combination with fuller flavor than expected.

Easy to find, easy to drink, worth exploring.

There are definitely worse options, but nothing impressive here. I remember all the hype when this made its way to Massachusetts. Could see it as refreshing on a hot day, but that is about it. Lots of better Lager options available.
