Some nice sweet caramelly aroma. Beer pours amber. Who woulda thought? Flavor is some pleasant caramel sweetness at the beginning followed by a smooth hoppy crispness at the end. Obviously a lager. A very drinkable beer that would go well at a summer barbecue

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, via Saarlander. Pours a clear bright copper colored body under a small fizzy beige head that fell to a patchy film. Aroma is very clean, slightly sweet smelling munich malt with minimal hoppiness. Flavor is lightly grainy and slightly sweet malt fading to a caramel laced finish. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with an active fizzy carbonation level. Finishes with a slight stickiness. Overall, a middle of the road Vienna at best, but it was quite drinkable.

Not much aroma; a bit of malt. This not what I like. It seems a bit soured or lactic. A small amount of hops in the finish.
