(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold with a soapy white head. Light corn and grain aroma. Flavor is a bit sweet at first with a grassy and corn middle and a sweet aftertaste. A bit too much. Darkmagus82 (2303) - - AUG 17, 2014

Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours an orange-amber color with a two finger white head. The head has a decent level of retention fading slowly to leave a very light level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is a mix of corn and a light caramel and light herbal hop smell.
Taste – The taste begins with some crisp corn sweetness as well as a good bready base. As the taste advances a light caramel taste takes the place of a dwindling corn sweetness. During this time, herbal and grassy hop flavors come to the tongue. In the end a rather grassy and herbal flavor mixed with some corn and malt are left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of creaminess and carbonation with a decent crispness. Good for the style but nothing exceptional.
Overall - Not a bad brew, but nothing exceptional either. I don’t know if I really like the grassy hop flavor that lingers on the tongue. Worth a try but nothing I would likely frequent all that often.

Grainy lager with chapagne like carbonation. Mix between a macro style adjunct and german pilsner. Slight hop finish FROTHINGSLOSH (8291) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a medium sized soapy-creamy orange-white head that left good lacing. The aroma was sweet and malty with caramel, citric hops and a bit of yeast. The flavor was tangy and astringent with citrus, and hints of caramel, honey and bread. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh. dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle from Giant Eagle Altoona. Pours effervescent Amber/Orange with some rimming, yellow hues. 1 finger, creamy white head. Wet grass and biscuit nose. Nice, underlying caramel flavor that’s overpowered by some grassy astringency that dominates the finish and after. Nice mouthfeel. A decent little pils.

Crisp, clean, refreshing, easy hoppiness to it. Not the typical corn malts that dominate adjunct lager swill. Very easy drinking. kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is light pale malt with a little wet husky grain and a minimal touch of hops. The flavor is a little sweet with some doughy malt and a light bitterness on the finish. A little heavier bodied than most of the other Straub beers, but not especially heavier on the hops. Moderate hard fizzy carbonation. Meh, a little bit of a different take on the Straub Lager, but not all that special.
