2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours clear amber orange with almost no head. Aroma of bready malts, slight caramel tone and sort of a syrupy quality. Flavour is quite sweet, with bready and caramel malt, a slightly cloying syrupy tone, with a lingering breadiness and light hop character. Low complexity, with soft carbonation. Nothing special here.

Weak & fizzy. Little noticable hops. Overated, especially for a flagship beer.

pours a clear orange-amber with a thin tan head that dissipates quickly, and not much lacing.
smell is of caramel, nuts, and malt in the back.
taste is watery, malt, and corn grain, ends flat.

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.

I live in San Diego. I’ve had this fresh at the brewery and in the bottle. While it is a huge improvement over BudMilloors, it certainly does not deserve to be rated anywhere near to SN’s beers. This beer is watery tasting, light on hops and malt. It reminds me of Rugenbrau Spezial.

Tastes like all other KS beers, the same .. same malt and hops profile (except for the occassional infection)

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