3.1/5 rDev -5.8%
The beer is a dark amber color with just a wisp of foam. The aroma is caramel malt with a few off-fruity notes lingering in the shadow. This continues onto the palate where the sweetness goes awry midway through conjuring up unpleasant thoughts. The off flavors are strangely sour. These aspects are not so objectionable to make it undrinkable, but they are noticeable. The beer finishes with a whimper. Whether pre-prohibition or post-prohibition, the beer is not historic.

Picked up at Beertopia, Omaha.
Lucky Bucket Lager is a bright amber with a fizzy eggshell head. Lots of bubbles raced to the top.
Interesting aroma spews from this one. I couldn't help but wonder if that egg smell was coming from the beer of the fridge.... yea, that's the beer. Different aroma than I was expecting, but it wasn't necessarily a bad thing. Aside from that, pilsner-like diacetyls, wheat, and a dash of noble hop aroma and tartness helped comprise of a more conventional nose.
The flavor was somewhat tart off the bat, sour green apple especially. In the mouth, and on the way down, it faded into a very bready finish. Ah, and there's that egg taste again.
The body is light....er, carbonation is quite crisp at the start and leaves a slight tingle through the finish. I say this is an average beer, because I wasn't the fondest of the flavor. If the flavor hits the spot for someone else, it may be very enjoyable.

bottle into a pint glass. honey colored, kind of thin looking with lots of bubbles. not much white head and almost no lace
smells like honey and hops and a little bready
taste is hops, sweet, malt, hops and sweet again.
a bit thin in the mouth, feels more like a soda than a beer.
overall, pretty average, but not bad
