Found this at an Omaha HyVee. Definitely on the marzen side of lagers. Amber body with hardly any head. Faint aroma. Taste is sweet, slight hops with a little after taste.

Poured amber, no carbonation and no foam. Not really usual golden as other premium lagers have, but well, I guess lagers are still different. Aroma had some caramel and brisk malty grain character. Quite subtle. Taste caramelly, sort of what I could already understand from the colour. Otherwise quite watery body, simple and highly drinkable - word I am using not to say characterless. Volume beer, not bad but well, just not that interesting, had much better stuff from this brewery before. rdixon77 (2842) - Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Down the middle. Grainy, slightly sweet, mild
Hop flavors. Pretty easy drinker. arminjewell (9676) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Pours golden with white head, aroma is lemon and biscuit. Taste is lemony up front with a bit of other citrus, taste is biscuit and bread with a dry and slightly bitter finish. Pretty good lager! GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - AUG 14, 2010

Aroma - very hard to pick-up any major aromas. Light malty grain, a little sulfur and a touch of apple juice.
Appearance - solid gold body, clear with sporadic bubbles coming up from the bottle. Head starts out about 3/4" thick, disipates to just a splatch of nothing really.
Taste - flavor is really clean, not much to hang your hat on. Kinda minerally tasting, light grass and a touch of sweet malt
Palate - light bodied, light carbonation...has a seltzer water kinda feel to it
Overall - a really nice standard lager. Not sure where the "pre-prohibition" claim/name comes in to play. No noticeable flaws, easy to drink. Big thanks to pfoxyjohn for sending me this one!
12 oz. bottle from grownfool- thanks again, Brian! Pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a pretty small white head. Aroma of sweet malts, citrusy hops, biscuits, crackers, cereal, and sugar. Flavor of minerals, pale malts, straw, paper, and saltines. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a crisp, mineral mouthfeel. Dry finish. Promising in the nose but there just isn’t much flavor here. Shag (3001) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 19, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2011 Amber color with a beige head. A malty caramel aroma. Flavor is malty with some caramel notes. I’m into comparing beers tonight so this is Yuengling like. Overall this is a pretty good beer for a session lager. 19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Hazed amber hued straw body fills the glass well. Smells like old socks. Light bready malt backbone. A little ripe pear. Not bad. DSG (14838) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 29, 2011
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma has some sour fruits, corny notes, some slightly citric hops notes and a decent malt character, a bit bready, with some graininess. Flavor has some sourness, light malty sweetness, citric notes and some mild bitterness. Light-medium-bodied. Sourness seems out of place, but it’s still aמ OK drinkable Lager. csaso (2284) - Missouri, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Tap - small foamy head, medium amber color, very swet malty aroma and flavor
