Straub Light

The Straub Brewery is in St. Mary's, Pennsylvania.  According to the book Great American Beer, Straub has been brewing since 1831, however the bottle says since 1872.

This 3.2% ABV beer pours a pale yellow golden, with effervescent carbonation.  There is a half-inch of pure white head.  The aroma is fresh and dry golden grain in a dusty galvanized metal bucket.  The taste is very light grain, with a touch of grassy bitterness.  There is a crisp sting from the carbonation, but some creaminess from the head.  For a light American adjunct lager, this is really quite good, one of the best in its category.
