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.

12 oz. Clear copper with a lasting half-inch of creamy meringue above. Aroma of corn, dark toasted nut, and earthy root vegetables. Flavor is deep roasted walnut, toffee, lightly sour citrus and earthy roasted root vegetable. Medium body has average carbonation and is dry with roast and hops.

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

Draft at GABF. I was very excited when I saw this one, just because you don’t 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, it’s 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?

thirdeye11 (5390) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2011
(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) clear amber, effervescent in the glass, ring of off-white head. Nose is very sweet, oddly a bit tart, and raw grain. Taste is also a bit tart, orange, lacking in flavor overall, but some buttery components here also. Thin body and thin on palate flavor, well carbonated though.

A clear golden orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is malt, corn, and grass. The flavor is slightly sweet corn and fruity hops. Very thin body, not a terrible lager.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of Cavie) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of corn, grass, and grain. Flavor of corn, citrus, nuts, and light grassiness.

portableparty (1908) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours pale amber color with a thin white head that fades to a collar. Aroma grassy and grainy with a lemon scent. Taste is more malt and grain with grass too. Palate is thin and chaulky that finishes dry. Note a bad lager!

Pours a clear gold. Aroma is malty with a slight hint of pine and citrus. Taste is quite light and malty. Overall a nice lager.
