COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Huber beer has been brewed the same way for over a century. Huber is a clean-tasting, thirst-quenching beer, with a mild, malty aroma. It has a slightly mellow flavor, pleasant aftertaste, and is lightly hopped to do down smooth.

this was an excellent example of a cheap pale lager. it actually had some taste and it wasnt completely bad. mildly fruity(a slight reach, but it was there) and sweet.

Very similar to the bock in taste. Pale yellow, thin head. Nose of fruit and cooked vegetables. Taste is all malt, sweet, fruity. A decent pale, especially at the price.

Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. A disgusting, bland, insipid beer. Just when I thought it couldnít get any worse I noticed a little black something floating in my 4 oz taster cup. Again. Yuck!

Mild sweet corn aroma. Pale straw golden color with a thin head that coats the glass somewhat. Sweet almost perfumy taste with a little hops in the back. No palate. Says itís been brewed the same way for over a century. Iím sure American pilsners were better than this back then. On the other hand, Bud, Miller and Pabst were perhaps much better a century ago and have been watered down ever since making the Huber taste better today! Anyway, itís refreshing when cold and canít be beat at $6.50 a 12-pack.

On tap at the brewery. 5th of 5 sampled. This one was surprisingly good for what it is. Nice golden color, decent hoppy aftertaste and not too watery for a lager. Just not my favorite style.

12 oz can. Clear, bubbly yellow-gold with a frothy tumescent head...Sprite-like sweetish nose with a touch of underlying grassy hops...very bland flavor, mostly sweet, no detectable hops, but clean...watery body, dull.

I first had this beer a few years ago, when it still was about $7.99 for a case of bottles. Unfortunately, because people were not returning the bottles, coupled with the fact that the brewerys refillible bottle line was so old, made Jos. Huber Brewing Company decide to abandon returnables. Although the recipie has not changed, the price certainly has. A 12 pack of disposable bottles now costs around $6.50, which is almost as much as an entire case cost two years ago or so. The beer is now also available in cans, although the taste in a can is quite bad, very metallic. In the bottle however, this is still one of the most refreshing beers to have on a hot summer day. And if you get the chance to visit the brewery in Monroe, WI do it. It is a very personable tour, and you actually get to walk on the production areas, unlike the macrobreweries where you are behing an observation glass.

Iíve basically been doing homework for the past two weeks and up until last I hadnít had a beer for about as long. After I finished a paper I visited a friend and he offered me one of these. He even got me a nice little lager glass for my drinking enjoyment. After I pour it I notices a nice, sweet odor, somewhat spicey, with almost wheat beer characters. The taste, however, was extremely bland. After a few mouthfuls I couldnít even tell that I was drinking beer. It was entirely without body. Pale, cidery color with almost no head (as my friend likes to say, "youíre guaranteed to get no head with Huber"). Probably a good getting drunk beer because of thise fact. Otherwise, not worth it. Of course, itís not bad at all, itís just that thereís almost nothing there.

Light straw color with a fizzy white head. Light aromas of grain and hints of herbal hops and DMS. Light sweet grainy flavors. I hate to say this, but worse than I remember.

This one has more flavor than the AMC stuff has.It has an apple flavor,and something about it reminds me of Bud. So for me this wont work,but maybe for you?
