Very smooth drinking beer, a little sweet, hint of hops, and finishes clean. I like it and would recommend it to others. I tried this after drinking a Budweiser. Try it and taste the difference. There is no comparison, it's nice to see a true American beer make a comeback.

Made in Latrobe. I think the old Rolling Rock brewery is now making this, presumably under contract for someone.

Appearance 3

Nose 4 This brings back memories of sipping my dad's beer. It's a nostalgia 4, not really a ratings 4.

Taste 3 Nothing special, nothing deleterious. Probably hard to create such a delicate balance with a flavor profile so low. Almost zero detectable hops, really more carbonation than hops.

Mouthfeel 2 Thin with some quirky and ephemeral quality that is going to require more work to articulate.

Drinkability Very drinkable

I may get a case of this. It might actually be a good lawnmower beer.

Read an article about this beer in the Pittsburgh Trib and saw it was available in State College, PA. On a trip up that way i picked up a case.

This beer has a light golden yellow color. Pours a half to one finger head. Smell is of corn. Taste is grassy and corny. Crisp mouthfeel with minimal aftertaste. Another retro beer with a 70s taste. I might buy a case again if they bring it out in cans. Good luck with your new beer Duquesne.

You could argue this is just another marketed American lager brewed by somebody else, but it's really a nice nostalgic well brewed solid lager. It's the Prince of Pilsener, pours a bright golden straw color easily lets light pass through. Bright white head forms nicely with speckled scattered lacing. Nice upfront crisp malt sweetness, pale malts light cereal grains a bit of airy carbonation flowing. Talks about the quality hops on the website, Czech and Washington State hop additions but they're not the focal point here. Flavor is nice a semi sweet crisp cereal grain sweetness with a balancing back end of cooked veggies and herbal hop water light. Not aggressive but well brewed and unoffensive. Mouthfeel is light bodied carbonation, no issues yet. Tastes pretty good I hope to see this stick around in the area for a while. Goes down easy after working seventeen hours today, I'll buy more I like the packaging and the easy going light lager aspect of it. Affordable as well, a welcome addition to good regional breweries like Lion and City in Latrobe.
