COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - AUG 14, 2010
12oz bottle -

Aroma - very hard to pick-up any major aromas. Light malty grain, a little sulfur and a touch of apple juice.

Appearance - solid gold body, clear with sporadic bubbles coming up from the bottle. Head starts out about 3/4" thick, disipates to just a splatch of nothing really.

Taste - flavor is really clean, not much to hang your hat on. Kinda minerally tasting, light grass and a touch of sweet malt

Palate - light bodied, light carbonation...has a seltzer water kinda feel to it

Overall - a really nice standard lager. Not sure where the "pre-prohibition" claim/name comes in to play. No noticeable flaws, easy to drink. Big thanks to pfoxyjohn for sending me this one!

There wasn’t a whole lot going on here. I saw this beer pop up everywhere so I tried it and rated it. There is nothing terrible but it wasn’t what I was expecting. Maybe there was too much hype and my expectations were too high.

In bottle at beer school. Bright amber color. Smells like... Musty chocolate, in a good way. ?? Tastes... Like a lager.

Passable lager gotten in trade. Some malty aroma, some white head on light golden colour. A tad light mouthfeel, easy drinking. Pure example of style.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2011 Very nice dark golden color. Great balance of malt and hops. This stuff is awesome off the tap and the bottle keeps the integrity of the beer very well.

That1Guy (1894) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2010
Crushed at the Crescent Moon. Not bad. More like a premium lager than a pale. Very smooth and light. Lots of bready malt with a kiss of hops. Like the dude before me said, it’s a nice session beer.

Pours golden with white head, aroma is lemon and biscuit. Taste is lemony up front with a bit of other citrus, taste is biscuit and bread with a dry and slightly bitter finish. Pretty good lager!
