Tasted this on tap at the Selinsgrove Beer & Wine Festival
Very light palate and taste.
I agree with the statement, “This beer didn’t have too much flavor for being a dark beer”.

Pours copper with a thin tan head that rapidly vanish. Discrete aromas of roasted malt, coffee and... cupboard?! Better on tap, with some orange peel aromas. Dry finish.

Amber colored body, thin off-white head, sparse lacing. Toffee, bread, corn, sweet cereals. Medium to light bodied, smooth carbonation, moderate sweetness in the finish.

Malt and grain nose. Sweet honey palate, a bit on the boring side. Got in PA while visiting State College, sat in Ron’s fridge for months, and thankfully he returned it!

12 oz bottle from unknown origin in Pitsburgh. Somewhat disappointing but just like Straub, good enough for everyday drinking.

Bottle. Pours clear rich amber color, thin tan head. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel. Medium sweet taste. Medium body, ave carbonation, slick texture, mild sweet quick finish. I thought this was a real nice lager, good flavor, smooth, and sessionable

When I poured this amber/light brown beer, I was taken aback by an unexpected whiff of skunkiness. The aroma’s a little bit roasty, a little bit caramel, and only a little bit skunky. Tastes a little bit bitter and faintly sweet. Creamy, but not rich. To tell the truth, I was pleasantly surprised.

Pours a dark copper with a frothy, tan head that stays. Malty aroma. Thin, flat mouthfeel. Bland taste. Meh.

This is definitely a tastie beer. This is a good everyday drinker. Comparable if not better than yuengling lager. The lower alcohol level is due to no added sugar in the brewing process. My new flavor. The corn taste I’ ve seen in other reveiwsis due to the fact that straub uses corn flakes as one of their ingredients. I recommend it.

Review from notes, beer sampled 8/12/2011
I had this in a bottle in a bar in the middle of nowhere Pennsylvania while visiting my wife’s mom. I’d never heard of this brewery so now was the time to try it. Pours a deep copper reddish brown with a decent sized white creamy head. Smells of lightly toasted and bready malt with hints of caramel and very faint spicy hops. Taste is smooth lager like and easy to drink. Lightly bready toasty caramel malt with barely enough spicy hops to keep it from being cloying. Medium body and carbonation level with a smooth slick mouthfeel. Decent enough macro style lager, but certainly nothing to go out of your way for.
