NABA í05: Copper, light sweet hoppy notes and a nice malty body.I would love to drink a pint of this. This makes me have fantasies about triple decoction marris otter lagers.

Light brownish yellow in color. Pleasantly aromatic for the style with an equal balance of caramel, sugary toasted malt and floral hop aromatics. Sweet bready malt flavor with caramel and biscuity accents.

Golden rule of beer drinking - the funkier the name, the crappier the beer. This watery brew has a horrible sweet flowery hop taste, like someone has put a shot of orange squash in the bottle. Better than Budweiser, I suppose. Iím pleased to say I havenít seen this close to home.

Dark orange. Fresh bready flavor with some banana. Hoppy nose with earthy and plant-like aromas. Reminds me of Steam Engine Lager by Steamworks.

Tasted in the glorious state of Colorada. Tasted at Keystone at an altitude of appoximately 9,156 ft above sea level. Tastes and seems like a standard continental lager.

Had this on tap at the brewery. I was expecting more vienna malt taste in this one and was let down. The Pilsner had more malty flavors. Hops made themselves known only breifly in the background, waving as they slid down my throat. I would have liked for them to hang around a bit longer.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Light amber with a thin, but nice topping. Little aroma at first, but this has a nice caramel-malt flavor, and nicely bittered on the swallow. Excellent Vienna-style lager.

Nothing really going on in this beer. A little more maltiness is needed to provide a flavor that catches up with it's appearance. No real faults just rather plain and unexciting. Proabably much better on a ski trip in the Colorado Rockies than from the bottle in TN.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Clear and deep amber with a tinge of copper. Head almost completely disappeared, but it had a lively carbonation. Malts were very bready, grainy and husky. Minuscule amount of sweetness. Finished with a healthy amount of dry bitterness. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Not too bad, though it did seem a little unbalanced.

Bottle: Clear amber color. Fair amount of carbonation. Not bad, however I wasn't drinking it in a chalet. I was drinking it in my apartment after a weekend of skiing. Tasty.
