Drinkable, not my style, fair malts and some hoppiness, not a bad beer, just doesnít click with me.

I donít really see this as a
Vienna style lager - as does the
previous rater - it certainly seems to
be a pilsner, but it does have its
eccentricities. It has a wonderfully
complex and spicy aroma - more so than
any pilsner Iíve had. But after smelling
it, the first sip was a bit of a disappoinment.
Not much body, and alot less complexity in the
flavor. Iím guessing there may have been some
dry-hopping, but very little hop flavoring.
It finished as a simple and sweet lager (perhaps
causing a tendency to see it as a Vienna style)
that wasnít as refreshing as the Lone Star
that I sampled in the same sitting.
