1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(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.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.
Earlier Rating: 3/25/2003 Total Score: 0.9
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)

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.
