UPDATED: MAY 12, 2008 Bottle from BevMo. Poured a nice copper color with a creamy head. Nose was malty with some hop essence. Reminded me of Sam Adams Boston Lager but with more flavor and easier to drink.

I really liked this, consider its a larger (vienna) and its outstanding. I think thatís why its so highly rated. Full of flavor, aroma, and character.

Ratman197 (9538) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Bomber poured a clear copper with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, citrus and bread. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, carmel and citrus with a crisp lingering bitter finish.

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2007
22oz bottle. A little more complex than I had assumed. Deep bronze amber color. Rich and malty, with the sweetness pleasantly balanced by the subtle dryness and complexity of the hops.

bhensonb (10803) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Light caramel aroma with a hint of hop. Slightly hazy amber color with a decent white head. Near full body with creamy, brisk carbonation. Caramel flavor with some pretty decent hop - noble, citrus - floral? Seems a bunch. Definitely citrus. The finish is reasonably dry, and the bitter tends to build. This is 50% of the way to Boston Beerís Imperial Lager. Very nice in the mouth. Best lager Iíve had today, this week, this month, ... It is really good - an ale drinker should be able to enjoy this.

alexanderj (3298) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Bottle; poured a rich orange, amber with a slightly off white head. Aroma of caramel, yeast and citrus. Very clean tasting and a pretty good example of the style. However, I was expecting just a bit more based on the rather high ratings. Very malty, with a slight hoppy ending (grassy). Malt was caramel and toasted. Possibly a good gateway beer for the standard lager drinker.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Pours amber w/ a decent head. Good head retention reducing to a full canopy and fluffy ring. Bright cheery citrus rind on the nose. Makes me want to smile real big like the clown on the lable. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Big and malty w/ a fast setting hop component to balance this beast. I can taste a bit of berry fruit in here but itís so mild and Robo Hop is adimant about keeping his post fruit free. I detect a slight biscuit and herb essence also. The finish is bittered well.
