Lucky Bucket's pre-prohibition lager is by far one of the best NE beers that I have ever had. A well balanced aroma and clean finish make this beer both easy on the pallet and very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy medium orange/amber/light copper color with a small dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, toasted biscuit, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. A bit fruity/yeasty, but not overwhelming. Flavors of cracker, toasted biscuit, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/grassy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, toasted biscuit, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Fairly clean on lager flavors, with minimal yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth and moderately bready/grainy mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4%. Overall this is a nice lager. All around nice robustness and balance of bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink. Feels a bit more like a Vienna lager. Nice clean malty flavor, with just enough hops to balanced the sweetness. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Light amber color, poured from tap a pint has inch head. Clean crisp beer will go good with just about anything. Well rounded and something you can share with the bud light, miller light ... ect crowd & they wont run away.

Dark copper, off white cover. Aroma is corny, a bit of tin, caramel sweetness. The taste is sweeter, candy, caramel, light malt husks, a bit of corn.

Bottle from Frugal MacDoogal. Pours pale amber with a dissipating ivory head. Aroma of cereal and fruity esters. Light bodied with average carbonation, and perhaps a little watery in texture. Very pale malt backbone that is a mix of caramel, pils, and toasted malts. Subtle but detectable hop bitterness brings this into balance. Actually a decent beer to pair with hearty food when you want to go lighter. By itself, not so exciting.

12oz. bottle. Hey,my Dads catching on, hes putting stuff like this in his fridge. Ive learned that Pre-Pro beers were first to use corn as an adjunct, but this one is all malt. And the malt shows up in the nose and taste. Light brown color of a Pre-Pilsener, too, reminded me of a Yuengling. Full on malt taste, with the spice of mainly German hops, followed by those piny American types. I may be rating this higher than others, but I think this is a fine "common" lager with no flaws.
