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.

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.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear medium copper with a one finger white head. Fairly good head retention and lacing with the head hanging around for awhile.

Aroma of cooked vegetables and some corn. There is really a lot of DMS here and I'm not sure if it is intended or not. Some caramel and grassy hops are buried in the background.

The flavor thankfully has less in the way of DMS but does bring along an odd, sour tartness that really detracts from the flavor. Some toffee and bready malt along with hay in the background but again I feel like there are too many off-flavors up front. Pretty watery mouthfeel but that is not out of line with a beer that is only 4.5%

Overall, I'm not really impressed. If this was cleaned up a little it could really shine.
