3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours with a clear deep copper body that has gold edges and supports a dirty white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up a bit of roasted malts, a slight spice note and sweet lagery fruity esters. The taste has a pleasing mix of roasted malts, lagery fruity esters and some vague modest bitter hoppiness. To midway and into the finish the lager yeast notes ride you into the after taste on a thin bed of fruity esters. Tasty Lager.

Bottle from World Market. Reddish cola color upon pouring. Sweet malty nose. Some breadiness and a hint of dark fruit. Sweet and malty up front with a decent little hop kick in the back end. Pretty good.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Read some of the previous deScriptions and surprised to see how many people donít know this style of beer. I am at a beer pairing now and the Cicerone described the Vienna Style lager perfectly. Malty, slightly breaded, with a slight roast. This beer is not supposed to be complex. I was impressed.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: 0.5l mug
From: World Market in Las Mesa (San Diego), Calif.
Purchased: Aug. 1, 2013
Consumed: Aug. 3, 2013
Poured a dark copper red murky color with 1-to-2 fingers of white head. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Above average retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled caramel malts, rye notes, iced tea, dates, skunky broccoli and faint vomit.
Tasted much better than the smell. Very malty. Also got caramel malts, rye notes, dates and some toasty bread.
Medium-to-light body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Long finish.
Was hoping for a bit more, but I wasnít terribly happy about this beer. Definitely decent for the style, but thatís it.

Bottle; poured a dark orange/amber color with a khaki head. Aroma of fruits, earth, some sweetness, caramel and cookies. Flavor had a solid sessionable quality. Fruity and bready throughout, a touch of sweetness and earth. Nothing remarkable, but enjoyable enough.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
650ml (22oz) bottle. Short-lasting red dirty white sandy head over slightly hazy amber body with lots of distinct effervescent bubbles disappearing at the nearly headless top. Lacing is frosty for a few seconds.
Aroma is a fairly commercial cereal malt and fresh but otherwise unimpressive.
Taste is light sweetness, medium bitterness, with a hint of umami satisfaction. It is adequate but not compelling.
Body is a bit full and light oily or heavy creamy in the mouth with a clean finish except for lingering bitterness in the back of the mouth.
It is a low-abv red lager that I would not avoid and can recommend for sharing but would not want to drink a second in one night in lieu of any other good lager.
