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.

12 oz bottle: Pours a light yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is doughy and bready, not much going on. Taste is a smooth lager with a slightly spicy side, possibly corriander. Easy to drink, but not very complex or interesting.

Picked up a sixpack of this lager before the holiday weekend. Poured a nice copper color with a nice level of head and carbonation. So far so good. The taste was sour, not terribly overwhelmingly sour but enough to question if I had gotten a bad bottle. I tried another bottle the following night -it was also bad. I contacted the brewery to ask about the off flavors. According to the brewery rep, sour is not an intended flavor in this beer! They offered to replace the six pack free of charge if I was in the area, and that they would like to investigate the problem. MN to NE is a little far to go for a sixer but the effort on the breweries part to correct the problem was promising. I did provide the bar code on the bottle so they could track the batch with their own records and hopefully determine what went wrong. Iíd like to try a fresh example someday.

Bottle. Clear orangish pour with a decent sized white head. Aroma and taste are not very good, actually - vegetables, grain, minimal malt character, hops donít stand out. Bleh.

Draft at GABF. I was very excited when I saw this one, just because you donít see many pre-pro lagers out there. Pours a gold with stiff white head. Nose is vegetal, cabbage and maize. Some faint herbal hop notes come through, but the DMS is a bit offputting. On tasting, itís a bit cleaner, but still vegetal with maize being a driving component. Bitterness works but the hops that they are proud of seems really restrained. I dunno, maybe a bad batch?
