Here’s another retro brand from the pre-micro brewery era. Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from the Malt Shoppe in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden amber colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that disappears clean. Aroma of light fruit, grassy hops, golden grain malt, some corn meal and a touch of butter. Taste is light bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of white flour and cornbread, a touch of grassy hops, butter and a hint of white pepper. Finish is clean, crisp with minimal bitter aftertaste. More palatable compared to the old Huber brewery recipe, but a simple light lager overall. dagrade (1) - - MAY 26, 2016 does not count
Back in the day, Regal Brau was the the same as Augsburger (Huber Brewing Co.) but sold, of course, in different bottles and at a lower price. A case of 24 returnable bottles was around $13.00 back in the late 70’s and early 80’s. This comes close but is a little off. I think Pabst might own the original recipe so this might have been just a guess. Frank (4188) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2015
This smells like grass and dirt mixed with Dean’s blue raspberry. It’s sweet, sticky heavy and largely terrible. I recommend you do not drink this but I will. Ruderidge (5) - Decatur, Alabama, USA - JUN 23, 2014 does not count
People underestimate this beer it’s a cheap beer but has the mix flavor of a lager and a brown ale. It’s a little sweet but something you could drink all night. I read that someone said it’s the worst beer ever. If this is true then you have a lot of beers to try. If your having a party I highly recommend this beer. jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy, dark yellow with a half finger of white head. Aroma is grainy but with some distinct banana and belgian yeast. Taste is light sweet. Again, mostly grains but a noticeable bit of yeasty goodness. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Nothing to seek out but ill drink this one.

I’m not so sure this is retired. It comes in an ominous old school looking case pack.
12 oz brown twist-off bottle.
It pours a dull gold with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Even for style standards this one looks pretty bad.
It actually has a grainy smell with real barley, though there is a certain must that reminds me of corn.
The taste is odd, it has a nice malt and hop presence for the style, but also the taste of cardboard and a bit of corn. It seems like they were going for an adjunct lager that was as high-quality as possible.
Not very good, but not bad considering the style.

Nice lager. Better than Miller or Bud. Glad to see Minhas brought this back. jkwalking05 (4735) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Golden color with a decent white head. Smell is fruity almost wine like. It has a slightly malty aroma. Flavor is balanced. Corn and rice are evident and help to lighten it. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Dark golden to light amber color. Off-white foamy egg-white looking head. Mild aromas of corn and caramel. Fairly fizzy feel. Nearly no beer flavors found in the initial quaff. Mild corn syrup flavors in the start. A mild herbal middle. Fairly dry generic bitterness in the finish and linger. travita (5003) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2008
