Notes/Commercial Description:
Pre-Prohibition style salutes a time when lagers had greater character and more distinct flavor, when beer wasn't full of the additives found in many of today's mainstream lagers. Lucky Bucket's version has a light, malty flavor that's easy on the palate. Filtered twice, the subtle maltiness nicely balances a floral hop. Dry-hopped with a fresh blend of aromatic West Coast hops, Lucky Bucket Lager is a great session beer with an ABV of 4.5% and 20 IBU's.

A - Pours a deep copper with a one-finger white head head. The head dissapates quickly leaving some light sticky lacing.

S - Faint aromas of bread, yeast, and biscuity malt.

T - Taste has a lot of caramel sweetness and bready malt. There is a light hop bitterness in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with high carbonation. Very crisp mouthfeel.

O - This is an average beer. Nothing to complex, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Picked this up on a swing through Nebraska recently. I have never seen this where I am from, which is not far from there. That could be a bad thing. Side poured with moderate vigor from the bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass.

Appearance - Pours a nice amber or copper color with good transparency, a decent one finger head, some retention, and a bit of lacing. Looks like an amber ale.

Smell- Breads, yeast, grains, and biscuits, but none of the floral hop aroma as described on the label.

Taste - Plenty of malts are present, which is of little surprise given the nose. Again, it is hard to detect any hop character, which I am okay with. But if you put it on the label, it should probably be a little more pronounced.

Mouthfeel - Finishes malty, just like it starts. Relatively smooth. Nothing much to write home about, but not bad.

Overall - Just like the mouthfeel, this beer is not bad, but not good either. It elicited a collective "meh" from my palate. I was not expecting much, and it lived up to the low expectation I set for it. Don't go out of your way to drink it, but its worth a try one time.

Poured into a Nebraska Cornhuskers pint glass. Pours a nice reddish/amber color with minimal head. Takes on all of the characteristics of a good lager. Mouthfeel is just right for this style. Hint of caramel in the taste with a malty finish. A quality lager indeed. This beer has become a staple around Omaha bars/restaurants, as well as popular events such as the College World Series. A good brew to enjoy year round.
