A delicious and very true to style old world Vienna. This has a nice malty nose & a good flavor with a well balanced hop bitterness. Very easy drinking (I could drink this all night) It is a very nice deep red color that has a nice head and leaves a good lace.

Sweet caramel aroma. Darkish amber color with a vigorous beige head. Nearly medium body with light fizzy carbonation. The flavor is mildly sweet caramel balanced with some hardly bitter, slightly floral hop. The finish is balanced, not all that sweet. Fairly pleasant drink - for a lager.

Bottle from ketchepillar- 12 oz bottle- poured transparent darken amber, slightly heavy carbonation, white head quickly bubbled away. Aroma of roasted malt and a touch of sweetness. Hits the mouth with a medium body, the malt tastes a little old, some hops on the finish. Had great potential, but the malt is off to me.

Pours dark amber with a small bubbly head. It smells of sweet malts. The flavor is rather crisp and a little grassy with sweetness following through. A little nutty. A little bitter on the finish. It’s got a medium mouthfeel. It’s alright.

Pint at the brewery tasting room. Crisp, fresh, livey hay flavored malts (lightly sweet, lightly chewy) with some greenish vegetal notes and some caramel chewiness, finishing with a mild tawng on the back. Good overall.
