Thirty packs of cheap "burp beers" are always something different to try. I try to get PABST when in Pitt, but this was a 30 pack of a old school beer that has been brought back to life. Rather than seeking out a six pack from an "exempt" six pack store, I just get the 30 and hope for the best. I've got about a 70% success rate. When I say "success", I mean, can I drink them all and would I buy it again. This is how I tried "Old German" and "Evil Eye Honey Brown" and Straub... (Only the Evil Eye won the buy it again and again contest.) So, batter up.

L: Pale yellow, see through with light carb. No head. No lace. A little glass tapping brought the lace to life.
S: Slight lemon and cooked grain.
F: Watery, with slight cream wash and small metallic finish
T: Pilsener? Well, it does have the impression of being dry, but the overall cooked grain asserts itself as cheaper beers seem too. There is a sweet faint pineapple juice like flavor and the alcohol up front just doesn't seem to mix here.
O: I wouldn't say this is the worst, not for it's price, and it's drinkable from the can. I put it in the glass for this review and it's a little tougher to drink. I'd say near the bottom of my 70% but not the worst, I just won't get this again.

Duquesne Pilsner from a can to a glass at Meat & Potatoes in downtown Pittsburgh.

The beer is gold with quickly collapsing white head.

It has a light Aroma of corn and other grains.

The taste is slightly sweet and grainy. There is a touch of floral bitterness but just a touch.

The mouth is about right for the style. Lots of carbonation laid over a thin base.

Drinkable, sure. It has a few redeeming facets and is a thirst quencher.

Found this beer for the first time the other day at my local distributor. Figured I'd save $5 over buying a generic like Miller Lite while also trying something different then the standard cheapies like Busch.

No complaints, this is a solid and good tasting beer that is superior to your Miller and Bud products.

This would make a great party beer when you want to look a little "fancy" while still supplying all of your guests with an easy drinking beer.

Put down your PBR and grab a Duequesne and start drinking some quality for the same price!

I drink this beer every time I visit Pennsylvania. It's my go to beer and I absolutely can drink a boat load of it. There's NO better beer for the price and its a steal for what you get. It has a sweet taste with absolutely no aftertaste. Thank you for bringing back a Pennsylvania Classic!!
