3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl. Pours a medium dense off-white head, amber and slighlty cloudy. Smells quite aromatic: caramel, tosted, malty, and with that typical citrus american hops note. Tastes caramel, orange, citrus, herbs; quite sweet and malty at the beginning, reveals a quite smooth hoppy character, with low to medium biscuity bitterness. Average carbonation, light bodied, dry finish. One of the best lagers/commercial craft I usually find the supermarket, has a pretty decent quality overall

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Classic Vienna lager from New York apparently made to a pre-Prohibition era recipe. Pours a warm and pretty orange blonde colour, clear with very quiet sparkling on tiny bubbles, under a creamy, dense, yellowish, quite stable head leaving attractive lacing. Aroma is on the weak side and mostly reveals American hoppiness, with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, caramelly malts, walnuts, biscuit, tobacco and perhaps a faint hint of iron. Smooth, slick palate with medium carbonation, soft onset of dried fruits and caramelly malts, nuttier in the middle, finishing in a citrus peel-like, somewhat peppery hop bitterness of relative length, through which the slightly toasted maltiness shows up as well. This style seems the bottom-fermented equivalent of the English pale ales and bitters, and this one is very true to it. Nothing extraordinary, just plain enjoyable. Could drink this all night.

Schön malzig würzig. Bitter im Abgang. Passt sehr gut zu italienischem Essen wie Pasta und Pizza. Sehr rundes Lager ohne zu Platt zu sein.

Pours a deep gold with a decent head that quickly dissipates. Light and fresh aromas of: caramel, grass, dough, cooked vegetables, and vanilla. Perfectly balanced flavor with a finish that nods to bitter. An excellent lager.
