Beerman6686 (4427) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2005
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

Nice clean beer aroma. Pale yellow but constant streams of carbonation rise within. Best fizzy palate. Rather refreshing and friendly. Overall, nice session brew.

Patrickctenchi (3814) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Pours clear, light gold with a quick white head. Scent is....almost no scent....almost no taste. A little grain, a hint of saltiness. What precious little there is, isnít bad, itís just....next to nothing. I f you want to drink all day and donít want to worry about the effects....this is the one.

Nate (3740) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2006
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.

(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.

Bottle. Extremely light sweet grainy malt aroma. Clear pale yellow with a small white head. Malt and grass flavored water. Light carbonated body.

LinusStick (2870) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Ugh...just when I thought beer could not get worse. This is crap. My bottle says "Ground Hog Brew 2008". I was expecting a little more than Straub Light. Aroma of skunk and not much else. Pour was almost water colored with no head. Taste was very strong carbonation with a heavy metal taste and some adjuncts (corn possibly). Terrible.

Beerdedone (2663) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow with no head. Aroma of light corn and skunk. Flavor is grainy and grassy with a super light body. The only good thing about this beer was the label.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2005
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.

MrBunn (2461) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Bottle. Corn water with alcohol added for effect. Not very good... Very thin and the only flavor and aroma is corn.
