12 oz bottle from Hy-Vee Muscatine. Golden amber and clear appearance with active carbonation. Malty, lightly sweet, smooth, pretty clean and lightly bitter with a touch of toffee and caramel. Solid lager overall, easy to drink.

Clear amber. Kind of cask-y, low carbonation. Nose is honey, bread. Medium mouthfeel, very soft, grainy, bready. A touch sweet. Finishes malty with a bit of grassy hop.

fidelis83 (2136) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Clear gold pour with a one finger, creamy white head. Aroma of cereal, bready yeast, toast, cooked plums, honey, light floral notes. Flavor is sweet cereal, pale caramel, sweet white bread crust, grass, floral hops, honey and toffee. Light to medium body, full, somewhat creamy, slightly syrupy feel, light carbonation. Decent stuff overall. Pretty good for a Vienna.

Aroma is sweetish malts, fruit and bubblegum. The flavor is fruit/berries, malts, mild grainy notes and a tart finish.

It was a tasty malty gold lager. I would drink it again but it would not make my regulars list.

on tap @ Exile Brewing / Des Moines IA --- Clear dark honey amber, rim head, no lace, a very still brew. Taste is mild caramel malt that moves without interest into a palte that offers no revelations. The finish may have light hops, it’s hard to tell. There is so little happening that I wonder if the lines were cleaned, or if this batch didn’t quite work. As is, not a keeper.

On tap at the brewpub. Comes a clear darker gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and caramel. Taste is the same. Very nice, well made, and a good example of the style.

Tried this at Exile. Pours a golden brown with nice head on it. Could pick up much aroma. Taste was very crisp and clean. I bit bready for my liking but overall a good lager.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 Tap @ Exile. Pours a clear dark golden appearance with a white head. Dry, sweet nutty, light caramel, herbal aroma. Very clean, dry grainy, a touch bready, lightly floral, light caramel flavor. Great way to be introduced to these guys! excellent lager. Old rating: 4.0. Update: tried again and it’s a touch husky and sweet. Solid but not as good as I remembered. New rating: 3.7
