Not sure how this won so many. However, I am guessing maybe age was the problem here? Aroma is metallic and light grain. Flavor is metallic and honey and light grain. Thin fast fading head. Was served cold out of a bottle dated 6 months. pass.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
APPEARANCE- very light and practically see-through, even though the color is a nice caramel. Head is here & gone.
NOSE- leaves me wondering whatís in the glass.
FLAVOR- slight bit of malt comes through, and some of the flavor i expect for a vienna lager, but not much else. Fairly bland.

12 oz bottle. Clear amber with a bone head. Nose is apple juice, grain and lemon pith; pleasant if subtle. Medium body with a tingle. Taste is light caramel, grain and grass. Easy going. A sixer would be perfect at a Mexican BYOB.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Soft carbonation with slick mouthfeel. Taste is bready with hints of caramel but has undertones of tart and sour. Pretty enjoyable and easy to drink. Im more of a hop head but this was still pretty good!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle with no date info found even after being told by DB that this is on the bottleneck.
A: Beautiful pour. Clear copper color with a short lasting head and patchy lacing. Few visible bubbles.
S: Malty with toffee and nut aromas. Moist brown bread.
T: Taste is also malty as expected with toasted nut and a bit of caramel sweetness. Also tastes watery.
M: Light body and below average (flat) carbonation does not excite the tongue IMO. Slight lingering sweetness but it is not cloying.
O: Been intending to try this for a while. Now I know itís just a mediocre amber lager. Watery malt taste and always expensive. OK but not impressed. Points off too for shitty (non-existent) date coding.
