3.03/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear yellow color. 1/4 inch head of a white/transparent color. Poor retention and poor lacing. Smells pale malt and yeast cleanliness. Fits the style of an American Pale Lager. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp with high carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt and yeast cleanliness mostly. There's a slight hop kick in the finish, but it's barely noticeable. Overall, about what I've come to expect from an American Pale Lager. Nothing worth going out of your way for.

I remember Huber beer from way back, but this isn't quite the same. In a good way it's cleaner, but in a bad way it's also a little less characterful.

It's a basic straw gold lager with a thin white creamy head and standard carbonation. The aroma is of "beer", with light grain, background hops, and a hint of apple-like yeasty fruitiness.

The flavor follows suit, and it's zesty and malty/fruity upfront, followed by a suggestion of hop flavor across the palate before it winds down in an almost un-engaging, and only semi-lingering, mildly bitter finish. If Joe Sixpack was a beer, this would be him.

Average but drinkable. There's a bit more substance to it than the big three offer, but it's still basically an American lager.

PS - The bottle currently shown here is an actual old Huber bottle that was a "return" bottle, used again and again by the brewery. The new bottles from the Minhas brewery are fresh and new with a brighter label. I'm quite sure they've dropped returnable bottles as have most breweries.

3.83/5  rDev +32.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This beer pours a clear dark straw color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes slowly into a quarter inch cap of foam. The aroma is of toasty malt with some nice floral hop notes. It is quite aromatic for an all-malt lager. The taste is more floral than the aroma with a solid malt undertone. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium bodied. Overall, this is a very nice American Lager that I could easily enjoy again on a hot summers day.

3.78/5  rDev +30.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Golden brown color with a decent half inch of nice white head. No lacing.

Smell - Nice malt and grain aroma with a hint of berry and apple.

Taste - This premium brew has a nice rounded grain flavor.

Mouthfeel - The feel is simple but it does offer the flavor on the outside edges of my tongue, which is somewhat unique.

~ Distinctive and refreshing. This brew can be a serious session taker.

Label: "from the oldest brewery in the Midwest". Okkk.

Does pour a clean and well carbonated sunshine yellow, pretty nice white head to this bad boy - lots of unexpected lacing left in the Bitberger pislnser glass.

The aroma was a very malty, much more than expected. Quaff is a damn fine one, full of malt, no veggies with a touch of sweetness.

Tasty mid-west treat, I could go for a few of these, and its cousin, the bock Surprised this has not been around before.

3.5/5  rDev +20.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a medium straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a soft grainy malt with a smooth hop.

The taste consisted of a smooth creamy grain with a light biscuity finish and a mild sweetness.

The mouthfeel was on the light side but creamy nonetheless.

Overall an easy drinking and smooth macro. Thanks to czoch75.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Appearance is nearly headless morning urine with steady and appreciated carbonation streams. Aroma and flavor are both dominated by corn syrup, urine, and honey. Grainy and metallic after taste. Sickeningly sweet. Mouthfeel is slight, syrupy, and sweet. Drinkability is low.

Note: Huber is way better in the bottle then on tap.

3.68/5  rDev +26.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Nice clear gold color with a moderate white head. No real lacing apparent.

The aroma is sweet malt with just a trace of floral hops.

The taste is clean malt up front, only slightly sweet, then a mild hops bite cuts in with a slightly dry finish and a slightly metallic aftertaste.

Best ice cold, light bodied, and very drinkable.

Picked up a 12 pack of bottles for $7.99 at Mainstreet liqours in CountrySide IL. This is was the first time I drank this beer. I bought it cold and would buy it again.No foul smell or taste and went down smooth, much better than any macro swill I have had lately.

Sampled at the brewery. Definately not my favorite beer. It poured a yellow color with a finger of head that had good retention through the drink. The nose was honey sweetness with a grainey background. The flavor was grainey, with a metallic aftertaste that didn't sit well with me. Eh. The feel was moderate at best and drinkability suffered from all the above stated qualities. There are other beers that are made here that are much better.

This beer seems to harken back to an earlier era of American brewing. Not that it is all that fantastic, in fact, it is pretty average in its own right, but it does have some depth and complexity to the flavor profile. Crisp up front, softening in the middle with some faint fruity flavors struggling to rise above the grain. Alchohol flavors are a bit brusk, but are held in check. Finish is clean and a little dry. I don't know why, but the beer makes me nostalgic.

Wow, Huber. This is not the beer of our Fathers, this is more like the beer of our Great Uncles. I saw this on sale for $6.99 a 12 pack, I decided to buy it and spring it some of my buddies as more of a joke than anything else.

You know what, its not to bad! Beer pours a very light golden color. Not much head and only minimal lacing. Smell is of grain with hints of hops and malts.

Taste is crisp and sweet. Not enough hops to add much bitterness, but the beer is better than any macro lager. Great carbonation keeps this beer moving. Nice dry finish adds to the attraction. Easy beer to pair with BBQ and fish.

Decent mouthfeel and drinkability is high. I guess those old guys were on to something. This is a nice throwback beer and one I will buy again.

A cheap, light golden colored lager beer from Wisconsin that comes in returnable bottles. (This isn't a bad thing.) Pours with a lively carbonation which settles to a thin collar of foam. Neutral aroma. Nice mouthfeel for a light lager, but with a lasting almost over-carbonated character. Fairly neutral tasting with just a hint of graininess and hops. A beer that is clean tasting and dry enough to be rather pleasant and quite drinkable! Pretty darn good for $12 a case and the thick returnable bottles are great for filling with homebrew. The red and white label is classic!

3.6/5  rDev +24.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12oz brown bottle. Label has a very early 1900's feel about it. No freshness date.

Appearance: A very pale, straw/yellow beer with a thin white creamy head. Large bubbled carbonation activity.

Smell: Clean aroma of light grain, delicate hops and very faint fruit.

Taste: Crisp up-front with a gentle hop bitterness and seltzer-like/mineral tasting carbonation on the palate. A smooth beer with a nice mellow balance of light fruity malt sweetness, grain flavour and equal hop flavour. The finish is fairly clean with a light sweetness and grain tannin flavour that lingers for a little while.

Notes: Huber is simply a damn fine beverage. Amazingly clean, light, refreshing and easy drinking ... but also has some body and character to it. Beats the pants off of other mainstream examples. 4.5%abv.
