    Bucket of 5 cans at the Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse, NY, during Polishfest 2013. Written "Utica Club Pilsener Lager Beer" on can, and "First beer sold in the US after prohibition". Pours a light golden colour with a decent slight off-white head and has lacing. Chemical nose of typical macro lagers. Wet mouthfeel, boring. Weird hop taste that is light and chemical-like with corn in the aftertaste. Not really good, but real cheap. I'll stick to the US micros.

    Very pale yellow color with bubbly fast dissapering white foam head. Aroma is like most normal pilseners, malty. Taste is watery, high carbonated pilsener, not the best kind. Short aftertaste. (Montreal 201210)

    It pours light-golden with fairly thick white-head and copious lace. A slightly fresh malty aroma with some hops and lemon. The mouthfeel is smooth and average-bodied. Flavors of malts, hops, lemon, slightly bready, and some spiciness. Better than I expected.

    UC for me, Just went on the Brewery Tour and it is a very good tour of you are ever in the Utica, NY. area. Good beer for drinking on a camping trip or sitting around the back yard. More Hoppy flavor than other similar brews. I prefer this over Miller Lite or Milwaukee's Best.

    Back in the late eighties/early 90's I could get this for $3.50 a twelve. It was a great deal and actually had more hop flavor and malt character than the more expensive american lagers. My favorite from this line is no longer being made, Utica Club Pale Ale. This beer had alot of hop character mixed in with a cereal taste from rice and corn. As a college student who had acquired a taste for hops this was a nice cheap alternative.

    Tastes actually better than I remember it in the 70s before east end brewing folded. This beer has some grain in the nose and palate...although still a weak malt spine, distressed with cardboard tastes from rice and sickly vegital sweetness from corn. A quick finish with no aftertaste, this is a product of the multi-cerial recipes that dominated the commercial lager wars of the 60s and 70s....thank God they’re over...beer couldn’t stand to get any blander or carnalized ....all in all, this is about the best tasting survivor of the 60’s pale lager wars... but nostagia for Shultz and Dooley is not strong enough to make me buy this again.

    I used to drink this one in college many years ago. It is a good, cheap lager when one is short on cash. It goes down O.K.

    This is one beer that I have never really enjoyed. It is relatively cheap but not that tasty. I loved their Schultz & Dooley commercials and loved the brewery tour, though. But....in a pinch it'll do!

    Utica Club, UC's or Uncle Charlies are one of the brews you would call Old mans beer. Light in color mild flavor and easy drinking. These are good back yard porch sitting beers. UC is best known for Scultz and Dooley who were used in advertising for many years.

    This beer pours with a golden body topped by a thin white head with some lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and rather well balanced between malt and hops. A slight tomato aroma is detected. The flavor is slightly sweet and malty with a touch of grassy hops and a touch of tomato like character. Light bodied and smooth yet slightly dry.
