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.

This beer (and I use the term loosly) pours with a very pale (and I mean pale) yellow body topped by a medium thick white quickly disappearing head with surprisingly good lacing. The nose is a grainy, grassy hop aroma with musty notes and a tiny bit of malt. The aroma is stronger than expected but not all that appetizing. Umm, yeah ok, after how strong the aroma was I expected a little flavor, but a glass of water is what I got instead. Very, very light bodied and smooth with a touch of dryness.

Stuff sucks, has no flavor whatsoever. Take everything I wrote about regular Straub and note that this has even less taste. You’ll get slightly more drunk on this than seltzer, but seltzer tastes much better.

My god i can’t belive something exist with less of a tast then staub. It had no smell and next to no tast, except when it warmed up and then it tasted like a beer fart. I could piss in a bottle and it would be better then this.

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.

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.

Typical light crappy beer. Drank it at a beer festival in 88 degree weather. It did not taste good nor was it refreshing. It has a strong buttery nutty taste. It has the appearence of a water downed lager.

On draft at the Newtown Brewfest. Pours pale yellow with a white head. Aroma of grain and corn. The flavor is weak, grainy, and corn. Thin body, crap brew.

Bottle. Corn water with alcohol added for effect. Not very good... Very thin and the only flavor and aroma is corn.
