Not great but not bad. Kinda of a everyday lager. Not in the US marcro brew style more in the Euro tradition. Hertyt with a pleasent flavor, it is a little watery/

This is NOT a Vienna, but is the best American Pilsner Iíve had. Hoppy/vegetal aroma, deep gold color, short-lasting head. Hops dominate the malt, as they should in a Pilsner, clean finish, overall a good beer that I would try again.

This Lager is translucent gold with a light, fizzy white head. The nose is simplistic with light hoppiness and a touch of toasted malt. The palate is as simplistic as the nose with rather ordinary malt character and a hint of copper. The finish is almost nonexistent, but some lemony hops crisply round out this summer beer.

12 oz. bottle from the gift 12-pack. Golden color, very clear, medium head. Nice clean flavor, maybe a bit sweet (at the appropriate temperature, well above 33 F!!) but it is definitely a lager and not an ale. The hops are nice and subtle. This beer is pretty much to style and a great session beer. I waited to judge till the second bottle and I am glad I did. Good beer. All six beers in the gift pack may surprise you, to be honest.

My second sampling from the much-maligned crazy toolbox carrier from Huber brewery. Iím not disappointed by this beer either. Itís everything the brochure says it is. This "Lager" has real malt flavor and plenty of body. The slight malt sweetness is matched by a nice hop bite. I could drink a lot of this beer. (Funny how some people smell corn in this beer. Huber states that this is an all malt brew.)

A decient beer with a soft flavor. It is a typical lager beer that hasnít been comprimised by mass production or rice or corn added to the malt. Light crisp finish, easy drinking. However it lacks the substance of other lagers, but that can be a good thing.

Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a clear yellow straw color with a big, creamy alabaster head that slowly dissolves. Aroma is of light grains, grass and citrus notes. Taste is lightly bready and well blended with light grassy hops and some citrus. Light to medium bodied and crisp, with good carbonation. Ending is of grassy hops into lightly sweet malty notes. This is a nice and crisp lager. Thanks D.M.!

The beer was good.... it was a little cloudy for expecting a larger, the taste was smooth and easy and even favorful. Yet, over all it didnít jump out and grab me as a favorite.

Consider a Vienna eh? Well, I found it somewhat Viennaish and also Pilsnerish. It looks like a pilsner, and showed some promise, pouring bright yellow-gold with a natural looking thick rocky head. It even had a moderately spicy aroma. The flavor was strangely sweet though, with some mild caramel notes. Bitterness was light, and there was a slightly metallic aftertaste.
