COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For those who love amber ales, here’s a limited edition amber lager is so crazy good you might convert to lagerism.

Vague nutty aroma, not strong. Clear chestnut, medium head.Fizzy. Sweet malt flavor, like cane sugar sweet. Not a lot of character or intensity, perhaps some dried leaves. Strange sweetness. I dig the revolving lager concept, but not this edition.

jgb9348 (4707) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Deep copper and light brown coloured body with a nice copper glow and a thick, three centimetre tall light brown head - nice looking, especially for a lager (given, it’s a vienna). Aroma of funky corn and wheat with a pungent sour milk and lactic smell that shows a bit of sugars and way too many odd scents. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic note with a lot of nuts and earth noticeable, showing off a little caramelised sweetness at the end and a bitter nutty flavour at the end, not great. Aftertaste is potent and not in a good way - too many off flavours and not enough holding this together. Overall, not a good vienna or lager and sadly a bit disappointing, especially for the series and the style. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 28-May-2012 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 01-June-2012.

12 oz bottle. Clear amber with a spotty white head. Aroma of bread, caramel and herbal tea. Flavor is bready malt, sweet caramel and a light hop bitterness. Medium body with soft carbonation and a smooth mouth feel. Nice beer for the style, rich and smooth.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Pretty deep reddish amber with a thick, steady, off white head. Nose is malty, toasty, some caramel, pretty on point for the style. Flavor is similar, light sweetness, malts, caramel, lightly earthy. Tasted very fresh, thankfully. Would drink again. Maybe the best I’ve had in this series.

Poured into a pint glass. Nice head with aromas of caramel, malts, and Brown sugar. Very sweet and a tad bitter. Very easy drinking. Average beer..
