Wow. Every so often the brewers self description is surprisingly off. This is a lager, true, but it’s amber color and malty character distinguish it as a Vienna and an excellent example at that!
Very tasty beer.

Bottle BB feb 09. Big carbonation, almost gushing, Fresh citrus reminding of egg whites, sugar and lemon.. Pineapple, vanilla, apricots, papaya, mango and spicy hops. Medium body, grapy but soft. Clean and creamy. Some roasted malts. Dissapointingly short aftertaste.

A nice clear amber color with a sweet aroma of fruit and hops. A nice, clean drink with nothing too crazy on the palate. Very refreshing.

Quite interesting lager. Floral and citrus notes in both flavor and aroma. Berries and slightly spices also. Lots of common with same brewery’s EIPA in hop sector.

It’s gonna be a photo finish, folks, as there are just days till we fly right past the "BEST BEFORE" date of June 08 notched onto the front label.
Appearance: Pours a clear, amber body supporting a hefty crest of whiteish foam.
Smell: Delicate toasty maltiness with a pleasant spicy, floral hop scent.
Taste: Crisp, toasty malt flavor with a restrained sweetness that’s quickly scrubbed away by a spicy, floral hoppiness and medium bitterness. Finishes with a lingering spiciness and some sweetish grain hints.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Soft, medium level of carbonation.
Drinkability: A fine, tasty lager from Brooklyn. If only every trip to Lagertown could be as satisfying.

Bottle sample at a beer festival in kibbutz Ma’abarot, May ’08. Deep golden with a small white head. Aroma of slightly floral hops. Flavor starts sweetish with some malt, caramel and bready notes, and and finishes bitter and hoppy, a bit sharp. Medium-bodied. Rather nice.
