This was a huge question mark for me. I bought this out of respect for the historical aspect and it was quite good for the price. it was light and crisp, and had a good note of hops CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2007
Pours a clear bright golden with a thin coating of wispy white head. Sweet pale malty aroma even has some light fruity notes along with a touch of Saaz hops. Body starts fairly dull, with a touch of sweetness and bitterness. Smooth, crsip finish adds to the drinkability of this otherwise, standard pale lager. frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2007
A short, white head holds awhile over a ho-hum, mid-golden body. Mild, burnt, nutty notes are the aroma after some grassiness fades. Corn-syrupy flavor on top of a cereal base = Sugar Corn Pops. Sugars thicken what should be a much lighter mouthfeel.

<font size=-4>Single bottle from <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/illinois/palati Worldwide Liquor, Palatine, IL 60067</font>
Sampled from tap on 11/11/2006 at the Joseph Huber Brewery in Monroe, Wisonsin...
Golden color. Moderate carbonation with a foamy, white head. Aroma and flavor are light malt and a hint of hops. A very average American Lager beer (but much better than the other macro-brewed American lagers out there!).
On a side note: I am glad that I was able to visit the Joseph Huber Brewing Company and take a tour of the facility. It is the second oldest brewery in America, but has recently been bought by a Canadian and will be renamed to Minhas Craft Brewery... hogan873 (451) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2006
Not a bad beer. Has the appearance and aroma of a typical lager. Medium palate and a decent taste. No aftertaste to speak of. An easy beer to drink...a thirst quencher.

Pours dark golden and slightly effervescent with a fully receding white head. Aroma of sweet malt, sugar, and bread dough. Taste is sweet maltiness with bread dough. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and with soft carbonation. TerryR (391) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Light golden color with a nice white head. Very slight malt aroma. Flavor is grainy with a decent amount of corn. Nice lacing. Smooth finish. For the price a pretty decent beer. bigtasty (23) - USA - MAY 7, 2006
My heart hurts when I see this label.
It reminds me of the time when I could go to my neighborhood liquor store and buy my beer in returnable bottles. The returnable bottles drove the cost of the beer down to absurd lows, I was paying 10 bucks for 24 in 2001!
Now it’s all changed. Huber is hard to find and may come in a disposable bottle or can. Huber products used to be inexpensive, delicious, and worth the investment.
Now that it’s all gone I feel as if I’ve lost a true friend.

Not great. Not bad. If I had a Blatz, and a Huber I would drink the Blatz, and throw the Huber at my next door neighbor.
OK, so I would actually drink the Huber.
But only after several Blatz.
Its OK. Nothing to have a conniption over.
I only had this stuff once, so I may not be the best judge of its character. So-once again- I say stick with the Blatz! Tmoney99 (14495) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Bottle from Party Source in North Kentucky. Straw color with a small white head that diminished quicky. Light aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture. Light grainy flavor with a short finish. Worth drinking once.
