Sampler at the brewpub. Clear amber with a nice biege head. Aroma of fruit and caramel malt. Sweet tasting with some hops for balance. Easy to drink. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler @ brewpub. Completely clear reddish copper color. Aroma is light diacetyl with some caramel sweetness. The taste losses some of the diacetyl and has a good caramel lagered flavor with some light tangerine hops at the back end.

Wow, they missed the mark on the style, but it is still not a terrible beer. The fruitiness of the beer just seems off and does not fit the rest of the flavors. Sweet caramel maltiness, hops and some balance and bitterness and take away some of the sweetness, but still has a quality I did not care for.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Easily my favorite beer at the brewpub. The body was light amber colored with a light khaki head. The aroma was perfume like with apples and carrots. The taste was spicy with bell pepperrs and some light bread crust. This would be good for a few.

On tap at the brewpub, 2/20/06: Beautiful looker. Rosy and active with a decent enough head. Sweet aroma. Beer was a tad too sweet for me ... but it’s a well-balanced example of an amber lager.

On tap at the brewpub. Amber in color with a big rich head. Speckled lacing. Some toasted flavor. Hoppy with a good malt content behind the hops. A sturdy little beer that I thought lies somewhere between a dunkel and a helles. This does not seem like a Vienna-style. Not toasted enough.
