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.

A little bready/grainy flavor to it, mostly a macro lager taste to it, although not too bad, probably because it isn’t nasty.

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. 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.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2013 Beer of the month club, pours golden with a nice white head aroma seems sour, like vinegar, fruit and malt, flavor is sour with flavor of cauliflower, this one is probably infected, light bodied, should taste it again[.2.4]

12 oz. bottle. Pours a light amber with a medium white head. Aroma of malt and grassy hops. Tastes light with hints of hops and citrus. OK.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 21, 2009
On tap at the Crescent Moon. Pours a dark straw color with a medium bright white head. This might have been Storz reborn, except that it lacks the corn and has an unexpected dry hopping finish. Not a smooth beer, but definitely has a manly grainy flavor. Mild citrus tartness is an undercurrent. A good tailgate beer I suppose.

TimE (3577) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 24, 2013
Copper color. Very light nose, some caramel notes. Very weak. Light weak body lacking hops and not so well balanced. Non distinguished and boring.

Dark poor from draft in Omaha. Wheat and grain aroma. Sweet for a lager. Enjoyed it but circumstances were right

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?
