look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: light yellow. short, very white head recedes to almost nothing very quickly. a lot of carbonation

S: quite sweet. florals and lots of grains. straw. almost smells like a white wine

T: bread and maybe corn... lots of grain. sweet and a touch of bitterness

M: light body. moderate to high carbonation

O: one of the better cheap American lagers out there. There is some unpleasantness in there but overall it doesn't taste too bad and it does have some balance

ok A church function in Western Pa. Parson Wilson brings out a tray of bottled Straub and some glasses. "Would you care for a beer sir?"...I reply, "Well, I don't mind if I do." I get strange looks when I ask for a second then a third. I'm almost embarrassed to ask where the bathroom is in their 110,000 square foot mansion but I finally do and on my way I pass through the porch which has a paper back of some bird watching reference manual.

Its a fine beer. Might be spectacular marketed as a light lager.

Serving type: can

Wow I had no idea it was such a low ABV. Still for 16 dollars a case of cans it's a pretty nice lager. Appearance is nothing to gloat at, just your typical bright yellow color with just a 1/4 inch of head that fizzes out a bit but the head stands pretty good. Smell is light bready malts, sweet corn, and a touch of bittering hops. Mouthfeel I expected this to be at least a 4.7% lager but it is a touch light, so the "light" american should be almost water.

Overall I prefer the amber lager mostly but this is a pretty good second banana.
