UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 Pours an amber-brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is largely of toasted almonds. Taste is almond with hop and malt characteristics thrown in as well. I love this beer and could drink it every hot summer evening.

A reasonably good but unexciting vienna. Starts out with some good flavor but ends watery and wanting.

From tap, pours a light brown with a medium head that disappears rather quickly. Has a slightly bitter nutty aroma. Flavor had a certain roasted malty caramel quality to it. Nothing special on the palate although slightly dry.

Beautiful amber color. If the aroma has some malt, don’t seek further in the flavor. Light mouthfeel. Poor.

Amber color. Malty nose. Also the taste is malty; reminds me some German Lager. Balanced.

Enjoyed this lager on tap at Stout’s Irish pub in NYC. Very impressive flavor for a lager. Pour a thick nice head revealing a roasted nutty aroma. First taste reveals the english pale side then finishes with a very unique wheaty smokey side.

Pours a darkish amber color with a solid, large, off-white head. The aroma is largely malty with some toffee and a hint of crisp floral hops. The flavor is surprising. Nicely Spicy hops dominate the profile with a nice balance of sweet unintrusive hop sweetness. It finishes clean on the palate with a crispness that compliments spicy food. Overall, a gem in a largely written off style.
