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.

12oz. bottle. Hey,my Dad’s catching on, he’s putting stuff like this in his fridge. I’ve learned that Pre-Pro beers were first to use corn as an adjunct, but this one is all malt. And the malt shows up in the nose and taste. Light brown color of a Pre-Pilsener, too, reminded me of a Yuengling. Full on malt taste, with the spice of mainly German hops, followed by those piny American types. I may be rating this higher than others, but I think this is a fine "common" lager with no flaws.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2009 On tap @ the Crescent Moon. Clear amber with a small off-white head, fading to a film before long. Aroma of some toasted malts and old citrus hops. The flavor is fairly biscuity with a little caramel malts. Some citrusy hops are around as well. The finish is semi-dry with bitterness around a 3. Light prickly carbonation with a light body. For a pale lager, this isn’t bad at all. Also, not bad for a flagship beer. If I lived in Omaha, though, I’d pick most Boulevard beers over this as a go-to beer, for probably less money as well.

Bottle. Grainy malt and lactic aroma. Amber with a moderate off-white head. Grainy malt, lactic sour, and light bitter flavor. Not really all that pleasant. Light body and carbonation.

Shag (2559) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 19, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2011 Amber color with a beige head. A malty caramel aroma. Flavor is malty with some caramel notes. I’m into comparing beers tonight so this is Yuengling like. Overall this is a pretty good beer for a session lager.

Pours clear gold. Aroma of fruit and grain. Pretty basic but way better than BMC.

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.

On tap at Beertopia. Pour is clear amber with a big white head and great lacing. Cereal, grainy, bready, corny, grassy aroma. Taste is plain lager, light grassy, bread, biscuit, cereal, husky, and grainy. Light body with high carbonation. Bleh.

[Bottle] Pours a clear orange color with a nice cap of beige head. Sweet molasses and caramel nose. Some grainy notes in there as well. Moderately malty taste includes a bit of citrus and mild hoppy finish. Light metal, but overall it tasted pretty clean. Average mouthfeel/palate. I didn’t think this was too bad. I actually think it would make a good transition beer for people that aren’t into craft beer.
