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.

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?

Bottled, nice lager with citrus notes. Nothing too exciting or mind blowing, but would be a perfect match with Mexican food.

TimE (3148) - 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.

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.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Gold body that has a slight haze to it. Average sized whitye head that falls quickly. Light malt aroma, sweet corn and faint hops. A watery palate delivers a brew with little flavor. Some sourness. Effervescent.

chicowv (455) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
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.

queenholly (2919) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - JUL 23, 2012
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.

beerandbeyond (678) - ISRAEL - FEB 6, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Clear amber-copper color with a quickly gone small white head. Caramel malt aroma with some rotten apples and faint hops. Sweetish malt flavors, with low bitterness and slight tartness. Light-med body, some nice crispness and overall drinkable but far from great.

BeerandBlues2 (9601) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours crystal clear amber with a medium, bubbly and frothy off-white head, medium-light retention with spotty lacing. Aroma is lightly toasted malt, hint of honey and biscuit malt, medium earthy and spicy hops, and no off aromas. Flavor is bitter hops, lightly tart, toasted malt with some biscuit character, lightly vegetal, earthy hops and a dry finish. Medium-light body and medium carbonation.
