Optics are what you would expect. Not much of an aroma to speak of outside some generic caramel malt. Flavor is in the same vein, though there is a bit of a fusel punch at the end. Pedestrian but fine if knocking back a few with some buddies.

Straub Brewery "American Amber"
on tap @ Luigi's Ristorante, DuBois, PA on 1/30/15

Notes: Clear medium amber in color beneath a one-finger thick head of white. Average plus head retention and lacing. Aromas of grainy, toasty and caramelish malt, bread, and subtle herbal hops. The flavor follows but adds a suggestion of some darker malt in the mix - underlying roastiness - and floral hops. Medium-light in body, and gently crisp. Moderately bitter with a dry finish. Interesting. Just slightly unique.

Had this on 2016-09-21 in Columbia, PA from a 12oz can.

A - Clear copper with a 1-finger off-white head that fades quickly leaving little lace.

S - Sweet caramel, light spice, light corn and barley malt. Pretty mild but pleasant

T - Lightly toasted raisin bread, caramel, mild hop bite. Not much of a corn flavor, although flaked corn is a major component used in the brewing process but 4,000 lbs of malted barley are also used in each batch.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Sweet at first but dries nicely.

O - Reminds me of a mild Vienna Lager. The best of the low-priced Straub beers. Under $1.00 per can in Pennsylvania.

Beautiful amber beer, faint smells of biscuit and sweet caramel. Dry feel with a caramel forward flavor. Good amber, and easy to consume in mass quantities. Cheers!

Overall 83/100

Summery: For the price, its a winner! About a buck a beer and it drinks clean and smooth. Think Yuengling but without the bad aftertaste. Very solid value but of coarse it is still pretty much an adjunct for the most part so if you are a beer snob maybe you should avoid it.
