Lucky Bucket Pre‐Prohibition Lager has an updated craft brewer’s twist as its signature: it’s dry‐hopped with a fresh blend of aromatic hops. The dry hopping schedule is a unique hop mix that was derived from numerous tests and private samplings. The resulting blend includes aromatic Cascade, Centennial and Amarillo hops.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2011 Amber color with a beige head. A malty caramel aroma. Flavor is malty with some caramel notes. I’m into comparing beers tonight so this is Yuengling like. Overall this is a pretty good beer for a session lager.

Pours clear gold. Aroma of fruit and grain. Pretty basic but way better than BMC.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2011
POurs hazy straw with sweet notes of malt that show off very light hints of hops. It drinks smooth and has a flavor from the malt that seems distracting. Better than your mass lagers.

decaturstevo (5613) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Gold pour with a watery white head. Sour corn and light caramel malt. Sweet malt and perfumy hops. Light medium bodied and fizzy. Not much but not bad.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Bottle from Cavie. Light orange pour with a white head. Aroma is sour, lots and lots of corn, and steamed veggies. Taste is sour, a little citrus, and more corn.

Cavie (4043) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color. White head. Aroma is a nasty fuckin sour grain. Awful smell. Stings the nostrils. Flavor is sour and gross. WTF did people drink before prohibition?!?? What the hell.

cmc619 (501) - California, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Boston Lager glass from twist-off bottle. Pours somewhere between amber and gold. Thin head. Aroma is faint. Good grain flavor, minimal hop character (for both aroma and flavor); mostly sweet flavors of chocolate and nuts. Kind of like a watered-down amber lager. Weak body. This is easy to drink, from a mouthfeel/viscosity standpoint, but lacking in the fullness quality that the best session lagers have. It honestly seems like it’s been diluted.

GJF (1397) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Typical grassy, bready lager, but doesn’t really work for me. First sip OK, but goes downhill fast. The finish is watery and sour.

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is grains with some caramel. I’m not really liking the aroma here. Taste is bread, slight fruitiness, touch of a caramel. Nice balance to the flavor here. Pretty light bodied. Better than I had expected. Thanks atom!

Darker gold with white head and visible carbonation. Malty nose but I also smell something akin to rotten fruit (very very faint), or could it be a Bret influence?. There is a toasty malt flavor, almost dry flavor upon first taste. It’s almost smokey and a bit odd, although I can appreciate this unique twist. Some citrus/lemon flavor (the hops?). Doesn’t really go together but separate it makes an interesting experience. Given you don’t drink flavors in silo’s I find this a bit of a confusing beer. Upon further tasting, this really does seem to have a bit of a sour Bret side to it. Not sure what to make of that interpretation.
