Crisp, Malty bockish, fine and neet. Very good lager. Really surprised to have this one. Should get more from the same brewery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a 2 finger white head that settles down to some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains with a hint of caramel and earthy hops and citrus. Taste is earthy and citrusy hop bitterness with a decent balance of underlying malty sweetness. One of the more flavorful lagers out there. High quality stuff and highly recommended.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear yellow orange color with pillowy white lacing. This beer has a beautiful bread and milky aroma without the metallic presence that lingers in many lager style beers. The flavor is toasty and clean with a slight hay feel and maybe just a vague metallic hint. Very mild hop feel along with a slight lactose feel. Overall, one of the best lagers to hit my mouth. I could sit and drink this beer in hot weather but could also have this beer on a chillier day.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unclear copper orange, big foamy off white head lasts leaving some stepped lacing. Citrusy malty aroma. Bitter citrus hop taste dominates, a light caramel maltiness emerges as it warms. Average carbonation, medium bodied. Bitter citrus floral finish. Not for the timid lagerboy. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber, with a thick white head. A buffet of malt in the nose followed with woody hops and alcohol. Coating biscuit malt in the middle with earthy hops added. Went great with tacos, plenty of hops to handle the spices. Nice addition to the definition of what a "Vienna" can taste like.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice light toffee/caramel coloring with a solid white head. Smells sweet, almost like caramel candy. Some bitter maltiness in the flavor with some background toffee and caramel notes. Some strange bitterness, too, in the finish that smacks of hops, but almost seems like an oxidized flavor, too. It was present in all 3 of the ones I tried, so I don’t believe it was an "off" bottle. Interesting beer. I would try this one again, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Caramel color, cloudy, decent head. Malty but musty aroma. Thick, carbonated, sharp finish. Overall okay, but not a favorite.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Bright amber with a medium off-white head. Nice toasty caramel flavour. Grassy hops with a metallic edge (are there noble hops in here?) More like a vienna than a lager, but a nice session beer regardless.
