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.

better than the scores indicate here. an amber lager in color, with a little more depth and sweetness than most. clear copper color, short lived half inch of white head. a nose of English pale and caramel malt, slightly out of place, and of course bready fresh lager yeast. the flavor is the same, equal parts yeast and grain, im missing hops here. well structured through a clean, but big and semisweet finish. more body than the standard lager, but also a bit heavier in a bad way, filling, not sessionable as it should be. carbonation is fine, and even with a moderate metallic aftertaste, I still enjoyed this beer, sorft of a fall lager with a little more heft than the standard issue. nothing world class here, but a fine local beer from lucky bucket if you are an eastern Nebraska resident or visitor.

Pre-Prohibition lager pours a golden color with a dissipating head. There wasn't any aroma from this beer. The taste had crisp malt undertones, with a strong overly sweet fruity, almost apple like taste. Hard to drink, and way to sweet. Overall its a very sweet and fruity like lager.
