3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 12-6-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours an orange-amber color with a two finger white head. The head has a decent level of retention fading slowly to leave a very light level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is a mix of corn and a light caramel and light herbal hop smell.
Taste – The taste begins with some crisp corn sweetness as well as a good bready base. As the taste advances a light caramel taste takes the place of a dwindling corn sweetness. During this time, herbal and grassy hop flavors come to the tongue. In the end a rather grassy and herbal flavor mixed with some corn and malt are left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of creaminess and carbonation with a decent crispness. Good for the style but nothing exceptional.
Overall - Not a bad brew, but nothing exceptional either. I don’t know if I really like the grassy hop flavor that lingers on the tongue. Worth a try but nothing I would likely frequent all that often.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a medium sized soapy-creamy orange-white head that left good lacing. The aroma was sweet and malty with caramel, citric hops and a bit of yeast. The flavor was tangy and astringent with citrus, and hints of caramel, honey and bread. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Giant Eagle Altoona. Pours effervescent Amber/Orange with some rimming, yellow hues. 1 finger, creamy white head. Wet grass and biscuit nose. Nice, underlying caramel flavor that’s overpowered by some grassy astringency that dominates the finish and after. Nice mouthfeel. A decent little pils.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crisp, clean, refreshing, easy hoppiness to it. Not the typical corn malts that dominate adjunct lager swill. Very easy drinking.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is light pale malt with a little wet husky grain and a minimal touch of hops. The flavor is a little sweet with some doughy malt and a light bitterness on the finish. A little heavier bodied than most of the other Straub beers, but not especially heavier on the hops. Moderate hard fizzy carbonation. Meh, a little bit of a different take on the Straub Lager, but not all that special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from the four type sampler case. Lots of yellow and orange hues on the pour with a few pleasant aromas. A little weak on flavor, perhaps from being reminiscent of prohibition days. Not your typical lager.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at The Knick. Mild beany noble hop aroma with a little corn sweetness and carbonic gaseousness. Rich amber clear with thin white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Mild amber lager with mellow sweetness and moderately assertive bitterness, hint of nutty astringency. Finish is medium bitter with fairly clean after. Muted malty-corn sweet notes. Kinda like a richer Yuengling lager.
