Amber colored and medium-bodied, this Vienna-style lager has a slight toasted/caramel malt taste with a mild hop finish. It's slow-brewed with bottom fermenting yeast and German hops.

Tap at the brewery. Pour is amber with a fluffy white head and good lacing. Smell is nice spice, banana, bread, caramel, earth, and light hops. Taste is bread, malt, light caramel, a hint of banana, and spice. Mouthfeel is somewhat watery with medium carbonation. Very smooth and highly drinkable. Another pleasant surprise from Dillon.

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.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear brown with a thin, fizzy white head. Tastes like hops and malt, creamy, nutty, light pine and grapefruit. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like grains and leather.

Maybe it was that I was drinking this at the chalet by a roaring fire after a day schussing the pistes of Breckenridge, but it tasted mighty good. Semi-flavorful and pleasant.

I am beginning to think to myself as I look at their offerings and say, why did I drive all the way out here again? Reddish auburn coloring with a small fizzy white head. Lots of honey and caramel in the nose, but the palate is quite light in body, with a flavor that matches the nose to a t. Light, with some crisp acidity, that gives the after palate a nice little bite. An interesting beer, but not something to write home about.

I didn’t really care too much for the taste of this one but the appearance was pretty striking. It had brownish gold tints and an aroma of hops and barley. Pretty enjoyable, but nothing super.

Pours amber with a faint toasted malt, caramel aroma. Flavor caramel, fruity, with a hint of hop.

Had at the All Colorado Beer Festival in Colorado Springs on 11/7/09. Color is a golden amber with average carbonation and a small head. Aroma is a mild malt scent. Starting with a bold light body it goes down with a light crisp feel. Finish is a light malt flavor backed by a faint bitterness. Overall its an clean easy brew to drink but its a little boring.
