COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Had this at the brewery. Beer poured a clear, light-amber color with a small, fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing head that left behind nice lacing. The aroma was fair: lightly malty with notes of roasted grain and caramel, lightly hoppy with a note of pine and lighty dressed up with miscellaneous notes of vanilla and honey. The flavor was lightly sweet with a trace of bitterness that had an average-length, lightly bitter finish. The body was light-to-medium, the texture was watery and the carbonation was fizzy. There was also a trace of alcohol at the end. Not a very engaging brew.

Rating from 3/06. On tap @ DD. Amber color. Caramel, toffee aroma. Taste is caramelly, mild earthy hops, hops mostly for bittering. Not too bad for what it is, a light amber lager.

12 oz Bottle via Arctic Liquors Beer of The Month Club. Pours a semi clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is subtle-a bit of toasted grain, some vanilla, and lager yeast. While I am not a fan of the style, this is one of the best i have tasted. It starts with some vanilla, toffee, toasted grains and there is even some fruity esters underneath, some apricot and melon. Light/medium body. Low/moderate carbonation. Very tastey and refreshing. A high quality craft beer that i could easily drink several of.

Bottle at ACBF. Pours a dark golden color. Pretty dark and malty for a lager, but not particularly flavorful.

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.

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.

An amber lager with a delightful blend of vanilla and honey to make it shockingly more pleasant than the average beverage labeled as a lager.

The 12 ounce bottle poured a flat-but-clear orange-amber colored beverage with a small, creamy, white head that was mostly diminishing but that left good lacing on the glass. The aroma had a light, sweet and fruity fragrance to it. There were notes of caramel with a very light floral hop backdrop. The body was medium with a soft carbonation and a creamy, smooth texture. The flavor started out sweet and stayed that way through the medium-long finish. There was even a slight alcohol warmth in the chest.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Honey and burnt caramel on the nose with some soft fruit. Brownish amber color, medium soapy head. Brown sugar and caramel, some nutmeg, great bitter balance. Medium carbonation, lighter medium body, fruity smooth finish. All around excellent beer, understated complexity of flavors and a well-balanced structure.

On tap at Dillon Dam Brewery in Colorado. Pours a bright amber with a great toasty aroma and flavor.
