Pours a medium copper color with a white head. Retention is fair, receding to a light topping and a bit of lace . Aroma of spent grains and corn. In the taste, adjunct rice and grain mix with faint malt. Hops are somewhat sour but faint enough to hang in the background. Light bodied and crisp mouthfeel though watery. Overall, this is a very average offering.

Out the can and in the glass the brew appears amber-brown with a mahogany hue. Looks thin, with an off-white head that thins to a rim.
Smells sweet with an herbal hops aroma. Toasted bread. Faint in the nose with subtle hints of brown sugar and cinnamon.
Lightly hopped. A little caramel sweetness, a little hops. Simple, but balanced. However, watery and thin.
Notes: similar to Yuengling Traditional Lager, but not as good and not as hoppy.

A: Pours I am amber color loads of Bubbles that make a nice soft layer of foam which quickly dissipates.
S: Sweet malt and Light hops, nice balance between both. cops have a white citrusy burst to them.
T: the first thing you taste as sweet mall then a slight corn taste. followed by a light citrusy hop flavor.
M: mouth feel is medium to light bodied, slightly carbed.
O: Overall a very drinkable and smooth character with a decent price tag attached.

Strikes me as a pour man's Oktoberfest. The malts are nice and carry the flavor. Not overly carbonated which is really nice. The biggest issue, it should be enjoyed very cold, or it comes off as sour. I've had 4 during an afternoon of hockey viewing, so I'd say it was smooth (in 2 frosted pint glasses).

This was a gift to me at the end of Pints for Pets in Altoona from no less than Catherine Lenze, Director of Sales & Marketing at Straub Brewery. I promised to give it a fair shot, but I was awaiting a picture's approval before opening it as pictures of popped CANs look really cheap. Here we go!
From the CAN: "A Smooth, Rich Ameri[CAN] Amber Lager".
The Crack and inverted Glug was marvelous, invoking a semi-cascading action and resulting in two-plus fingers of dense, tawny head with good retention. Color was a deep amber with NE-plus quality clarity, allowing me to see into the future. Nose had a faint metallic aspect along with a very grainy malt sweetness. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was moderately malty along with a faint metallic tang. Finish was semi-sweet and the lingering flavor was of freshly-milled malt. It was not anything that will knock one's socks off, but it was a good CANdidate for a) a session beer and b) one's summertime cooler. it also represents a real effort on the part of a small, regional brewery to step up their game. If you truly believe in "Buy Local, Drink Local", do not pass up a chance to have some of Straub's beer.
