Weis Choice Old Fashioned White Birch Beer

Old Fashioned normally means “it tastes like junk,” but in this case it’s actually not that bad.  Now remember, it’s all about expectations, so this brew is not going to rank in the top brews, but for a store brand it’s pretty darned good . . . erhhh . . . average.

It’s real light, but not too zippy.  It’s a very smooth and likeable birch beer.  This is the kind of brew that you could drink 2-3 cans and not feel sick.  It has a strong wintergreen flavor with not much else to it (that the plight of most birch beers).  Not really extraordinary, but a nice change.
