(draft @ "The Eternal Tap," Straub Brewery - St. Maryís, PA) They added a second tap to the Eternal Tap this year, so we had to have some of it. Straw yellow pour with lots of white foam. Dry and grainy aroma with a little bitterness underneath it all. Taste is dry and grainy as well, but very smooth. Finish is smooth and watery. One of the more full-bodied and enjoyable light beers Iíve ever had, but I still prefer the original Straub. Go and take the tour! Visit the gift shop! Itís worth it.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 Pours light, pale yellow, with a white head. Aroma is kind of weird with grain, and some malt. Flavor is somewhat sweet, with grain and some hops. Iíd still rather drink this than BMC light beers.

Pours pale yellow/gold, with a white head. Aromas are grain and malt. Flavors are grain and hops, with some malt. All in all, a pretty good light beer. I rather drink this than most other light beers.

aroma is somewhat pleasant much like its cunterpart Straub, appearance is a pale straw color, flavor tastes a lot like regular Straub but more watery and worse aftertaste, palate is watery of course, overall 6/20 because of low alcohol content

Piss yellow, fizzy white head that dies down quickly. Watery grainy aroma. Grainy unispired malt flavors, with floral tinges of hop, most noticable in the finish. Mouthfeel is very light.

12 oz bottle pours pale golden with a thin white head. Aroma of light grains and malts. Flavor is much the same. Very slight hop finish. On the palate this is crisp and clean and actually not all that bad for a light beer that is only 96 calories.

it could have been worse for a light beer. It had that light beer taste, but wasnít as watery or thin like coors light. as far as light beers are concerned this one isnít that bad.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 I have never encountered anything drinkable from Straub and this beer proved to be no exception. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an extremely light pale yellow with a medium sized bleach white head. The aroma is sweet and grassy. The flavor is sour and grassy with a light sour tang and a dry finish. Not good but less offensive than their regular beer.

Itís not terrible but itís not good either. Appearance is a yellowish looking color, not too appealing. There is some flavor there but it just isnít strong enough.

Pours pale yellow. Aroma of mild malt, some citrus. Slight malt, hop, citrus taste, but not much. Fairly bland and uninteresting.
Earlier Rating: 4/14/2004 Total Score: 2.3
Not as good as regular Straub, but not a drain pour either. This beer is affordable and drinkable on hot summer days. My father swears by it, but I never stock it as I prefer pales, IPAs and I2PAs.

Oh boy, the 02/02/2004 version. lucky me. Pale straw hue, fizzy diminishing head and no lace. The aroma is that of grassy and wet grains, mild malt hints and nothing else, very weak nose. The taste had a citric twang, touch lemon zest, and buttery biscuit. Bland and watery. The hint of bitter aftertaste. Watery, fizzy, light mouthfeel. A poor brew from a poor brewery, but their stuff does appeal to the masses of western PA. Makes Iron City seem world-class.
