Stegmaier Gold

The Stegmaier Brewing Company is in Wilkes-Barre,  Pennsylvania.  It brewed there from 1857 until 1974 when it was purchased by the Lion Brewery, also of Wilkes-Barre.  They have brewed the beer to the present day.

This beer pours golden in color with a small white head that leaves light to medium lacing down the glass.  The aroma is light grain, some aromatic hops, and a slight touch of apple.  The taste is light, crisp, clean, light grain with a slightly fruity finish.  The carbonation stings in a thirst quenching way.  A nice easy drinking American style lager.
