Bottle. Very good for a lager. Pours a hazy amber with a decent white head. Left lacing. Big, malty nose with some fruity hints to it. Flavor is rich and smooth, heavy on the sweet malts with a touch of caramel. Medium in body with mild carbonation. Some pleasant bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. I would buy again if I’m looking for something light and smooth, well made brew

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Thaichile. Pours an orangish copper body under a one finger craggy off-white head. Aroma is mostly a general graininess with some toasted and a little biscuity malt. Fairly light in flavor with some biscuity malt under a moderately bitter hoppiness. Finish is short and moderately bitter. Lighter bodied and a little thin with active carbonation. An OK, but unexciting, "Amber".

decaturstevo (5750) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Golden pour with hints of red. Light head and lace. Nice caramel malt aroma. Sweet start with a hint of cherriness. A hint of hop bitter on the end. Thin and a bit watery, decent carbonation. Not bad more like an amber ale than at PL.

notalush (5716) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2005
A respectable vienna - strawberry blonde in color, herbal aroma with a touch of sweetness - quite hoppy, even for the style - a mild grainy maltiness - finishes clean

ClarkVV (5686) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2005 2004 draught @ Ithaki. Looks the part, good mix of browns and ambers, quite bright with a small white head. Aroma of very light brown malts, hints of sugar and a good dose of bitter hops. Flavor is very hoppy up front with some touches of caramel towards the finish, but it never really brings enough malt and you get a dry, almost metallic finish that is too bitter and just seems like another average APA. Medium body, somewhat watery on the finish. It’s drinkable enough, but quite unspectacular.

PhillyCraft (5595) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2012
Not a terrible lager, not grreat either. Drinkable when your other options are inbev products. Smooth and somewhat flavored for a lager.

JPDIPSO (5587) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Amber color with taller off-white head. Mild malt, light toasted bread and some earthy caramel in the nose. LIght malty start. some caramel and toasted malt in the middle. Bit of citrus and pears toward the finish. Fairly clean finish. A somewhat better than average amber lager.

EithCubes (5551) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle. Nose lightly dusty with a sprinkling of sweet earth, Munich with the muted earthy-spiciness of English hops. Pours a beautiful dark copper-amber with a rocky beige head. Spicy English hops [aha! It must be the Nugget] and crystal malt with a little sweet darkness of Munich and some nice rolling malt depth, lightly woody; bitterness is very light and more nutty-earthy than bitter, also overwhelmed by the sticky sweetness. Light fruity edge-rounders and a pleasant buttery undercurrent. Love the toasty character here. Medium-fullish body, aftertaste dries a bit. This is my vision of a traditionalist Englishman brewing an Alt for his Rhenish guests with what was at hand; it has a wonderful balance between malt and hops and would do very well in multiple seasons, best late at night.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Bottle. Pours an amber body with a light head. Lots of toasted malt with caramel and a light hop finish. No etoh and a bit bland.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2006
Draught. Not too bad, but i guess it was a little unexciting. Some light caramelly sweetness and then a dry-ish, mildly bitter hoppy finish. Quite easy to drink, but not something i would search out.
