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!!

This is one of those beers I find best to drink on a hot summer day or when you don't care what you are drinking, you just need a beer. I also find this is a good beer to fit all types of crowds; everyone at the party will drink if their first option isn't available.
