A lighter red lager broadly in the style of an Austrian country beer. Lightly roasted malts and sparing use of hops gives this brew a refreshingly simple palate.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2008
On draught during the ABR ’08 in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a clear golden pale orange brew with an average off-white head that has some nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt, a touch of vanilla and roasted nuts. Taste is medium bodied, malty character of caramel, toffee, some roasted nuts and grassy hops. Finish is semi-dry, crisp, with a light caramel and toffee aftertaste that quickly disappears.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a clear light orange-golden color. The head was thin and white with decent retention and lacing. Pleasant aroma of caramel and subdued vanilla cake batter. Dry on the tongue with fresh cereal grain, noble hop, caramel, and light toffee flavors. Pretty tasty.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Draft @ Brewpub: Copper, no head or lacing. Nose of ripe canal water and malt, light caramel, some diacetyl. Dry mouthfeel but a sweet flavor, odd. Not that good.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Pours amber/red with minimal head. Not a lot of aroma: a bit of malt, just a touch of roasted nuts. Lightly roasted malt and just a hint of hops on the palate. Refreshing and not wholly undrinkable.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2007
Draft at brewpub. Aroma: Lightly toasted malt with a note of almonds. Some light herbal hops. Appearance: Orange-brown in color and clear. Light khaki head was small and foamy with decent retention. Fair lacing. Flavor: Lightly toasted grainy malt, toasted nuts, light herbal and earthy hops. Medium-light bitterness. Finishes clean. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Nothing special, but drinkable. Went well with my dinner.

badgerben (4888) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2005
Dark gold color with a thin head. Slight wheat aroma. A little hoppy with some barley. Not what I’d call a shining example, but inoffensive.
