hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2006
Draft... GBOA ’06... Clear straw-colored lager with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. Almost nondescript nose and flavor, but I do pick up some soapy, grainy notes with plenty of diacetyl to go around. Ultra light-bodied and fizzy. Short, crisp, clean finish. Better than Straub Premium only because it’s more watered-down and, therefore, has fewer offensive flavors and aromas.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2004
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.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Clear straw color with a medium thin white head with fair retention. Minimal lacing. Aroma of light grassy hops and a hint of malt. Light-bodied and crisp at first but becomes watery right away. Mild grassy hops flavor, along with a bit of sweet malt. The finish is carbonated with very little flavor aside from a touch of hops. Although boring, it is decent for a Light beer.

Bottle. Lactic barley malt aroma. Pale yellow with small head. Tap water with hint of malt and hay hops. A bit of flavor - not much but luckily not horribly unpleasant.

BBB63 (5946) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2004
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.

douglas88 (5789) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Bottle. Listed as Ground Hog. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. A sweet grainy and honey nose. The flavor is basically a thin decent pale lager; sweet and grainy, some light spicy hops perhaps. OK.

kramer (4858) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear pale straw gold with a nice one finger foamy white head. The nose is mostly corn with a light crackery maltiness and minimal hoppiness. The flavor is pretty thin, watery corn with a hint of bitterness on the finish. Fairly clean on the finish though. Light bodied and watery with fizzy carbonation. Not too bad for a light beer, much better than most macro versions.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2005
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.
