This was a pretty hearty pilsner, a lot heavier than what fans of Miller and Bud are used to. And for its price it's kind of prohibitive to be a party beer, but it is pretty good. Nice for warm or cold days, I think. Definitely good for Chicago, but I don't see the blue collar Old Style drinkers flocking to this. A good example of a Central European lager. Note, the label said best consumed by 2/4/03; I had this in October 2003 and it was fine.
