COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lucky Bucket Pre‐Prohibition Lager has an updated craft brewerís twist as its signature: itís 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.

cmc619 (428) - 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 itís been diluted.

Typical grassy, bready lager, but doesnít 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. Iím 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!

BiddleBrau (958) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2011
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. Itís almost smokey and a bit odd, although I can appreciate this unique twist. Some citrus/lemon flavor (the hops?). Doesnít really go together but separate it makes an interesting experience. Given you donít drink flavors in siloís 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.

Atom (1403) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2011
12oz bottle pours a clear orange with a white film of a head. Aroma of corn, grain, caramel, and a slight sourness and hop. Taste has some up front malty sweetness that turns into bitter yeast flavors, with hints of hops throughout. Interesting and very decent Lager.

drowland (6123) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAY 1, 2011
5/1/11. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie! Hazy orange pour with a small off-white head that fades to a ring fast. Light aroma of caramel and a hint of sour corn. Smooth, malty flavor that lingers sour a bit as well. Interesting, not bad.

crazyvin (1976) - New York, USA - APR 23, 2011
Poured a clear light brown color with a white head that faded quickly. Aroma had a toasted grain and caramel note to it. Flavor had a little more of bread like notes and some sweetness to it almost like brown sugar. Body seemed a little thin, but not enough to totally ruin the beer. Evenly balanced and smooth. A nice beer.

wxman (1457) - OíFallon, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2011
Pours a clear bright gold/amber with an OK white head that laces the glass some. Sweet malt and hop bouquet. Taste is sweet pale malt, bisquits and a light hoppiness. Refreshing and quite good.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2011
Bottle from Frugal MacDoogal. Pours pale amber with a dissipating ivory head. Aroma of cereal and fruity esters. Light bodied with average carbonation, and perhaps a little watery in texture. Very pale malt backbone that is a mix of caramel, pils, and toasted malts. Subtle but detectable hop bitterness brings this into balance. Actually a decent beer to pair with hearty food when you want to go lighter. By itself, not so exciting.

phaleslu (6665) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2011
12 oz. bottle from grownfool- thanks again, Brian! Pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a pretty small white head. Aroma of sweet malts, citrusy hops, biscuits, crackers, cereal, and sugar. Flavor of minerals, pale malts, straw, paper, and saltines. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a crisp, mineral mouthfeel. Dry finish. Promising in the nose but there just isnít much flavor here.
