Smells malty. Tastes quite smooth and malty. The flavor is quite good! The palate is evenly balanced and bold without being overbearing. Just very good and nice. Not over the top, but very pleasant.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice orange color, decent head. Smells very bready and the taste follows suit. This reminds me of a marzen and I was quite surprised by ho much I enjoyed this beer. Of all the Big River beers this was probably the best one I had the chance to sample.
Serving type: on-tap

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, mahogany-hued body with a 1½ inch head of off-white foam.
Smell: Faint bready malt aroma with slight herbal notes.
Taste: A blend of bready and biscuity maltiness with a touch of caramel sweetness. Very faint touch of fruitiness. Herbal, tea-like hop character with a mild bitterness. Touch grainy near the drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A tolerable Vienna, though it does leave me hankering for an Eliot Ness.
