This is a "fresh" beer with no preservatives and un-pasteurized.
Pours a thin straw golden color with a nice initial head, but little/no retention. Slight cornish hint in the aroma and taste, with finishing hops that help it end crisply. This is my opinion of a classic American pale lager, I can picture many men drinking this a couple of decades ago at the watering hole after a long day at the steel mills. Very drinkable, especially in the warm weather that helps you enjoy a cold beverage. And to help with light exposure, it's sold in a plastic bag or as I prefer it, right out of a keg.

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.

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.
