Draught at the LAX bar. Amber-orange with a low, fine head. Caramel malt nose. Rich and chewy but a bit 1-dimensional. Malt flavor not quite so chewy, but ok caramel, light nuts, cherry. OK.

Buttery. Sweet. Gross. This beer embodies everything wrong with shitty American brewed lagers.

On tap at San Diego Airport bar. Pours a Clear copper with a thick creamy white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is raisin and caramel. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet caramel malt and smooth finish. Easy to drink a good vienna from Karl Strauss.

It is what it is.... I micro wanna-be which is really just mass-produced beer designed to appeal for "craft" drinkers who wanna slam a 6-pack. Nothing exciting going on here, and really boring. I’ve had much better vienna lagers.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2012 Fairly weak beer with watered down taste. Only redeeming value is its looks - a nice head of fine microbubbles.

Slight orange and vanilla notes on the nose. Darkened shade of amber/gold appearance with no foam. Flavors of subtle orange, apricot and faint vanilla. A lot of sweetness going on, a little too much for my liking. Overall, a pretty decent lager. A little too sweet although, pleasant drinkability. I’d give this a C+ rating.

bottle. pretty average. commercialized. Decent amber would definitely pull this from the cooler before a BIG3. nothing to right home about though.
