bnokk (431) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 21, 2016
APPEARANCE- very light and practically see-through, even though the color is a nice caramel. Head is here & gone. NOSE- leaves me wondering whats 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.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2016
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.

fsbw21086 (449) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2016
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!

malvrich (206) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2016
12 oz. bottle with no date info found even after being told by DB that this is on the bottleneck. Tulip glass 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 its just a mediocre amber lager. Watery malt taste and always expensive. OK but not impressed. Points off too for shitty (non-existent) date coding.

Bottle: Pours clear, orange-amber with a short beige head. Caramel and bark aroma. Caramel malt, mild nut flavor. Simple, but enjoyable.

IndianaRed (3556) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle Clear light amber. Coarse brief light tan head. Nice blend of toasted light molat flavors and aromas and a little hope bite that balanced nicely. Clean bodied and smooth palate. Taasty

jbruner (3828) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Pours a clear golden brown on tap with dissipating off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, and clean yeast esters. Taste is less of the caramel, more of the yeast, clean and easy. Decent stuff, good for a lager.
