BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Lucky Bucket Brewing Co.
Nebraska, United States
luckybucketbrewing.com

Style: American Amber / Red Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Sampled back on 12/31/15 but had this a couple times before a few years back. Comes in a 12-ounce bottle that is brewed down the road. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a "LUCKY BUCKET" 16 ounce handled-glass stein.

Brew pours a deep amber in color with close to a 3-finger foamy off-white head. A decent amount of sticky lacing is seen when sipped. Aroma is of roasted malts for the most part. Bit more going on with the taste with some grains, yeast and spice also in the mix. Some bitterness is found for the finish but it is still a decent brew. Medium-bodied with good carbonation. Overall it is OK.
