Faint smell I’d expect from a lighter style lager. Malty raisins with little hop finish.

For a lager, it’s one of the better ones out there. I remember pouring for this brewer at the GABF. They’re really making some pretty good stuff. This one has a nice subtle sweet aroma of toasted malts. It’s more malty than lagerish. Flavor is rounded with pungent malt and lots of lightly toasted flavors. Finish is fizzy and sweet with a nice burp. When you’re eastern European friends visit, let them try this one...

Nice and clean golden copper with two fingers of off white head. Nose shows toasted grain with a nice and full malty profile that shows a touch of sweetness. Herbal and grainy in the flavor with a light sweetness and touch of dextrinous character. Medium full body.

jbrana (590) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Admittedly, this is not my favorite kind of style. However, this is a respectable beer that is very crisp, fresh, and still have some nice caramel flavor to pair with the pale cereal notes.

Amber colour. Has a malt caramel taste. Body is a tad thin. But of caramel in the aftertaste.

freekyp (1669) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2015
A mild malty Vienna with an earthy toasty malt and balanced profile. Pours clear brown with a one-finger ring of head. A hint of coppery noble twang in the finish is pleasant. Features a toasty fade. An excellent food pairing beer because of its relative neutrality. Try it with some Sauerbraten.

harrisoni (15315) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle from GBBF 2015 and drunk at home. Darkish reddish brown clear lasting beige head. Some lager yeast/malt on the aroma, touch of spice. In the mouth it’s got some sweetness, some more spice. Clean finish. Some hop, some spice. It’s fine. Quite enjoyable.

on tap @ Devil’s Backbone / Roseland VA --- Clear medium orange amber color, beige head cover, spots and dots of lace. Taste is mild malt that coasts through the palate to a lightly bittered finish. Almost watery at the onset, and, coupled with weak carbonation, this brew needs some help.
