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.

Hooray for local beers! Lucky Bucket hails from Omaha. It's the newest craft brewer in the state.

Lucky Bucket Pre-Prohibition pours like a typical lager, a light gold with a hint more orange than the average domestic. The head is white and short-lived.

On the nose I get biscuits, coriander, and, I'm not going to lie, the smell of dirty diapers about 30 feet away. Also some sweet tarts.

This beer hits me a bit like a wheat beer. I get a touch of oranges and an amazing amount of crispness, bordering on acidity, that is very refreshing and appealing. Again, the biscuity malt is present.

Lucky Bucket is a very drinkable beer. Goes down easy and is very refreshing. Probably something I'd prefer in the summer, but I'm impressed in December, too.

Thanks to Fugazme for some fine local Nebraskan brews.
Cystal clear pale golden colored. Large fluffy white head quickly recedes to a thin white film on top of the beer.
Lot's of pale malt in the aroma. Fresh baked biscuits. Faint hint of a spicy hop and fruitiness.
Flavorful for the style. Lot's of pale malt. Biscut flavored. Fruit--green apple. Hint of Juicy Fruit gum.
Light bodied and crisp in the mouthfeel. Very clean finish. Mouthfeel is made for sessioning.
Very drinkable. One to keep stocked in your fridge in the summer. Would be a good beer to have in cans.

A pre-prohibition style lager (NO ADJUNCTS), 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass 4.5% ABV

A - Golden, though more orange than a standard lager. Head disappeared almost immediately.

S - Slightly malty aroma.

T - Malty, just slightly hoppy and bitter. Slightly crisp. Fairly clean finish, not much aftertaste (especially compared to any Macro)

M - Medium carbonation, with medium body.

D - very drinkable, could easily have many of these at once. A good first effort from a local Nebraska brewer.
