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.

As far as light beers go, Straub Light is right up there. While the flavor is not as powerful as one would like - it is somewhat expected from a light beer. Still has a nice taste with a clean aftertaste. And with no preservatives, you donít need to worry about those hangovers in the morning.

I'd have to give this a higher score in Appearance if it wasn't for the too pale yellow color - It did have a decent head and the lacing was just fantastic for such a light beer. Flavor was sharp with carbonation up front, a thin sweet malt, and a lightly peppered hop bite at the finish. Surprisingly not horrible.

Thin, almost to the minimum of Mich Ultra proportions. Barely any taste at all - a tiny bit of sweetness and that's all. At least this is not like the movie "Groundhog Day" - you'd have to drink this beer over and over again. (the label was neat though)

As "Ground Hog Brew". Sharp beany hops and gaseous carbon dioxide aroma. Light, but no skunkiness. Pale straw clear color, with wispy white head. Light bodied, crisp, with medium-heavy carbonation. Carbonic tingle the whole time you drink it. Mild flavors. Decent sweetness but not much malt character. OK hops but more carbonic acidity than anything. Beany after. For a light beer, itís actually pretty good. Certainly fresh and itís clean and crisp at the finish. Wouldnít want to drink it all night, but it was refreshing.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2007 Wow this is a REALLY light beer.
Fizzy water with just a hint of actual beer taste in the background.

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.

12oz bottle from a flipping wine bar. Pours slightly hazy pale yellow with no head thanks to the wine server and he even took the bottle with him. Tastes like a pilsner made love with a light beer. Reminds me of burger classic light or goldmine. Weak taste and light overall. At least itís not wine. Shit my pinky is arching out.
