UPDATED: SEP 22, 2004 It is hard for me to compare this one with your average American standard, because to me there is nothing quite like it. Mild aroma, caramel and spice, with a slightly bready malty flavor. Dries out nicely in the finish with a fresh spicy hop note that is quite evident in the on tap version but less so from the bottle. Swilled from an iced down keg in Monroe Wisconsin this can be one of the greatest beers on earth.

My heart hurts when I see this label.
It reminds me of the time when I could go to my neighborhood liquor store and buy my beer in returnable bottles. The returnable bottles drove the cost of the beer down to absurd lows, I was paying 10 bucks for 24 in 2001!
Now it’s all changed. Huber is hard to find and may come in a disposable bottle or can. Huber products used to be inexpensive, delicious, and worth the investment.
Now that it’s all gone I feel as if I’ve lost a true friend.
A beer pardner.

I like it! What sets this American standard apart from the pack is that it's brewed with 2-Row barley instead of the cheaper six-row used in Bud, Miller and the like. The beer has a rounder flavor, deeper color and a bolder body. Hops are light but they play their role and give this lager a nice balance. This is a very enjoyable everyday beer that deserves our support.

Pretty good "premium" beer with un-offensive grain beer flavors!
Priced right and highly drinkable from an old Wisconsin Brewery!

An excellent any day beer. If you are a fan of American Standards (Budweiser, Miller, Coors) then this is a nice cheap treat. Very easy drinking.

A great tasting cheap beer. A little hoppy but worth the price. The aroma is nothing outstanding and there is little head. Really smooth.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2003 A great beer. It does not taste like your normal domestic beer. It is also the cheapest beer i have ever had costing only 9.99 for a case of bottles. This was a favorite at my college basement parties. I would tell anyone to overlook the price of this beer and not judge until you have expereinced one of wisconsins best beers ever. and remember to return the huber bottles and case because they are reused.

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.
