2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330mL bottle, pours a clear amber with a small beige head. Nose is of sweet treacly, caramel malts, toasted nuts, bread, and some honey-ish accents. Flavour is fairly light, with the same treacly caramel malts and honey notes dominating, but they are very weak. A bit of bread as well. Kind of sweet, but the body is not strong enough for it to come through much. Decent, inoffensive beer, but nothing special.

330ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and mild hops. Taste is caramel malty sweet with a mild hop bitterness and mild spice. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Nothing really notable about this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice bold amber brew with a very thin head. A gentle swirl of the glass made a beautiful medium tan tight and glistening head. Sweet caramel, toasty goodness, dates and maybe a dull spiceless pumpkin. Great flavours here - I think I’d drink this style more if this was available. Of note - actually drinking this after a short visit to the freezer. Sweet bold caramel toasty stuff, light tang just before the finish, very malty, mild mild spice, ya. Well carbonated, good attentive mouthfeel. Thankfully CBC is playing classic NHL games tonight! My bum itches

500 ml bottle at Krah-Krah in Vienna. The point here is that this is an Austrian Wiener (or Vienna) lager, deriving from the ruddy-blond style pioneered by Anton Dreher at Schwechat, one of the early lager-brewing greats. Ans Austrian don’t do many of these. It is the lager equivalent of a red ale. Not to everyone’s taste or mine but well made and worth finding..
