Bottle - from sampler pack. Not good. Very strong caramel/butterscotch flavor. Possibly infected. Also very low hoppiness for a pilsner.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 Your average pale yellow american beer. Some hops or bitter linger finish. I didn’t seem to notice anything real special about this brew. I’m gonna have to give this a rerate down the road. I may have been to buzzed to properly rate this. On tap at the north park deckhouse in robinson.

Appealing aroma and semi-active golden pour with a basic taste and minimal mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

There is something fundamentally wrong with this pilsner if that is what the brewery wanted it to be. It is thin and near amber in color. Taste was reminiscent of burnt caramel, and not in a good way with unflattering bitterness. If it is really a Vienna then label it as such.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2012 Aroma and taste of sweet malts. This beer is very drinkable, but not overly enjoyable.

This is a conundrum. I rated it and hated it as a pilsner, but upon seeing the style as vienna, I want to be a bit more lenient and try to appreciate it as that. My original rating stands. They really need to re-name this one.

Bottle- Poured into a sam glass. Nice golden color with white head. Dissipates quickly but leaves a blotchy thick white residue on surface. High carbonation. Smell was pungent and very sour. Very much like soured fruit. The taste plays off of the smell. Tastes sort of like a fruit smoothie gone sour. The intial bite is very strong, mellows out a bit to slight hop flavors and banana. The sour taste holds strong in the aftertaste. Light bodied beer but a light slick on the tongue. To sour for my taste. Especially for a pils.

(Bottle) Pours a light amber color with a large frothy head. I wish the beer tasted as good as it looked. It had kind of a sour taste.

Gooo. Golden in color, lots of carbonation, white fluffy head that dissipates quickly. Had this from a 12oz bottle from a variety pack, I’ll have to give it another try another night.
