4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Pours amber with an off-white head. Nice head retention. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is of caramel, bread, malt, and grass. Smells good. Taste is of caramel, grassy hops, and toffee. Has a bready malt backbone. Lingering grassy hop taste. Mouthfeel is light, and slightly creamy. Body is moderately carbonated, and slightly sticky. Tastes good, and it drinks real easy. I could definitely drink a few of these.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap pour at Butcher and the Boar. Bumped pint glass. Amber color... obviously with good lacing but minor unassuming head. Aroma is mostly malty and bready. Mouthfeel is thin syrupy and a little oily. Taste feels very much like a standard amber or Vienna lager. Malty with some roasted notes. Mostly sweetness with caramel and subtle toffee notes. Some bitterness at the end. Pretty decent for the style. This one feels pretty touchable.

12oz bottle pours a dark clear Amber, with a small khaki head. Aroma of fruity hops, grains, with sweet caramel and toffee malts. Sweet malt flavors, caramel and toffee, with slightly bitter grassy and fruity hops, and beery lager yeast on the finish. Nice for the style.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: June 14, 2015... GLASSWARE: Hennepin pokal... OCCASION: Cavs/Warriors Game 5--have a good feeling about this one, so I will pair it with a good--and Ohio-brewed--beer... APPEARANCE: Amber, almost ruby red, dark but mostly translucent; head is off-white, swift and forms a halo around an island... AROMA: a slam of caramel with cherry, raspberry and other fruity hints; the hops are not so present, but in a lager, I am not surprised... PALATE: speaking of style, unlike any Vienna I have had--full-bodied, balanced between the teeth and the tongue, and dry--almost a winelike finish; the ABV is clearly a force... TASTE: again, the strength of a pinot noir, with caramelized malts and pepper, chocolate, and some cherry qualities as well... OVERALL: as formidable a lager can get, in terms of flavor and strength--balanced and full, with a pleasant, drinkability; something of a dessert lager (?) that finishes an evening properly...now, if only the Cavs can do the same...

Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear deep amber red, quick 1 finger head, little to no lace or retention. Aroma of caramel. Taste is very sweet, muted earthy bitterness. Medium body, subtle carbonation, sticky mouth feel. Finishes sweet. Tasting notes of grass, caramel, tree nuts, plum and toffee. Too sweet for me.
