Light gold colored beer with a rapidly fading head...refreshing and tasty...it kind of reminds me of a Michelob...for the price I would consider this a pretty good deal.

This is the first time I try the Premium. The Lager is a bit sweeter. I definitely like the Premium better! Smell: Corn, Hops, Yeast like traditional AAL. Here in NJ a 24 pack costs $12.99 a case! Lager costs $17.99 a case. Overall a solid 4 for taste and value. A good go to beer and definitely underrated and unnapreciated especially if you're on a budget. Cheers!

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.
