2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks zvikar. Clear amber. Weak aroma with malt, a bit of caramel, some oxidation and something weird. Sweetish flavor with a bit of malt and caramel, honey-ish oxidation notes and a drier finish with faint bitterness. Rather light-bodied.

Tap. Mostly clear amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is a very mild caramel malt. Taste is terrific - hop profile with mild caramel malt. Nice brew.

Bottle. Medium amber with a light golden head. Aroma is lightly toasty caramel. Flavour is the same, with a metallic bitterness in the finish that I didn’t dig.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Bitter roasted malts. Clear amber with a thin head. Very malt forward, with enough bitterness to cut the cloying sweetness. Bit of spice and hops in the finish. Not my style, but I can appreciate this for what it is.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Poured clear brighter orange with light swirly yeastage and a tall cap of creamy off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet breads and pils-type malts accented by light green fruits and some pine resin.. quite nice. The flavor had sweet, lightly-toasted caramel with lovely pine accents.. light fruits tail off the sides, leaving a sweet, rewarding feel through the finish. Light-medium bodied and predominantly sweet on the palate with great balance. Well done!

Full malty and hoppy. The best of both worlds. Very well balanced and incredibly smooth. I agree that this is Lakefront’s best.

"i was intrigued by the premise of this all malt amber lager, but it was another miss. slight fart character to the aroma (nice, no?). the flavor was unique, but not good enough to make up for the otherwise unimpressive beer."

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Amber colour with huge, off-white head leaving traces of lacing. Malty, clean nose with notes of bread and caramel. Malty taste with bread, wort, hints of caramel and a touch of orange peel and dried fruit. Medium body with soft mouthfeel. Medium spicy bitterness. Balanced sweetness. Not too exciting, but a well balanced and tasty vienna.
