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.

POurs hazy straw with sweet notes of malt that show off very light hints of hops. It drinks smooth and has a flavor from the malt that seems distracting. Better than your mass lagers.

On tap at SPSBF. Pours a clear yellowish gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a lot of hay and earthy grains with some corn and grass. Flavor has corn and grains with a bit of underlying hay.

hazy honey color with a small dense head. Aroma of sour grapes or apples, some yeast, some malt. Taste of light caramel with a very pronounced tart "twang". Bitter-sour palate. I like sour beers, so I got along well with this one, but I think it might be spoiled a bit. Or at least if the tartness is intentional itís a unique interpretation of the style.

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!

GG (2326) - 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!

phaleslu (6807) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2011
12 oz. bottle from grownfool- thanks again, Brian! Pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a pretty small white head. Aroma of sweet malts, citrusy hops, biscuits, crackers, cereal, and sugar. Flavor of minerals, pale malts, straw, paper, and saltines. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a crisp, mineral mouthfeel. Dry finish. Promising in the nose but there just isnít much flavor here.

Shag (2637) - 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. Iím into comparing beers tonight so this is Yuengling like. Overall this is a pretty good beer for a session lager.

Hazed amber hued straw body fills the glass well. Smells like old socks. Light bready malt backbone. A little ripe pear. Not bad.

DSG (6329) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 29, 2011
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma has some sour fruits, corny notes, some slightly citric hops notes and a decent malt character, a bit bready, with some graininess. Flavor has some sourness, light malty sweetness, citric notes and some mild bitterness. Light-medium-bodied. Sourness seems out of place, but itís still aמ OK drinkable Lager.
