4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can’t believe my little local Grocer stocks this. Lager purest might not approve, cause it tastes like an IPA to me. Very hoppy. burnt toast and caramel corn. Supersize frothy blond head. Best lager.

At a tasting, thanks DSG, bottle, reddish, hoppy and fruity aroma, dry, bitter aftertaste, and overall a very rich and interesting beer.

Pours a hazy copper color. Aroma of citrus hops. Taste of caramel malt, grassy and citrus hop. A bit on the thin side, but Ok drinkability.

Amber color with a thick off white head. Sugary caramel aroma. Not much complexity to the taste. It’s a good drinkable beer though.

hazy appearance, aroma of bread, lightly bitter, light body, average carbonation, tastes pretty much like similar lagers of this style.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet aroma of malt and light, grassy hops. Amber with a large white head- decent lacing. Flavor is slight caramel, pine, hops. A very thin palate similar to killian’s. Overall ok.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
5 beers in. The aroma meets you with a slight hop aroma - probably saaz. Makes you want to drink this beer. As soon as the beer enters the mouth, you want to swallow it so that you can get rid of the taste - spitting a beer our is against everything that means something to me in my life!
In short, it reminds me of bud light, miller light, and all of the other swill the american beer industry pushes on everyone!
Now, that I notice that this is a vienna lager, maybe it needs a lime to make it palletable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma has a hint of butterscotch and hops, but not much else. Somewhat dark lager with a good head. A lot of citrus hop taste, but it’s a good match to the malt level. Decent mouthfeel, but lacks a good finish.

Pretty good lager. Like to do a side by side with yuengling, very similar but better. Clean, slight caramel. No off flavors.
