COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the classic European amber lager. It has bright reddish highlights and a pronounced bready malt aroma reminiscent of its Austrian counterparts. The flavor plays slightly toward caramel and toasted lager malt but remains balanced and drinkable with a clean finish perfect for a summer session.

Tasting at Matt’s, packaged 07/01/15
Amber color, small dissipating head. Very simple malt aroma and flavor, low bitterness; clean; nothing bad with it, just terribly boring.

brokensail (15271) - San Leandro, California, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle @ BBQ. Amber in color with white foam. As expected, a good bready malt character and some toasty malts as well. Light floral hop note, some baked apple ester, and a little bit of brown sugar. Kind of grainy for my tastes, but it’s not bad. Kind of bitter on the finish...okay.

mcberko (12418) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy amber orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out herbal notes, some grassy notes and toasted bready malt. Flavour brings out bready malts and herbal notes. Pretty bland, but clean and drinkable. It’s okay, but very meh.

BeerandBlues2 (11732) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 14, 2006
Draught at 2006 Craft Lager Festival. Pours gold with a foamy white head and spotty lacing. Aroma is corn, potatoes, malt (grain, meal), yeast (sweat). Sour, bitter and tart hoppy yeast flavor, grainy malt finish. Light bodied and dry, fizzy palate.

Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear golden color with a medium creamy offwhite head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts and floral hops. The taste is toasted malts, bitter hops with herbal and spicy notes. Medium bodied. Strong carbonation. A bit too hoppy.

DSG (10950) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Clear deep golden-copper with a white head. Aroma of malt, bread, a bit of caramel and a light spicy hops hint. Sweetish flavor with caramel, bread and a drier finish, slightly bitterish. Light to medium-bodied.

crossovert (10760) - Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours a brilliant clear amber, slightly off white head fizzles away quickly with not much lacing. Aroma is sweet toasted grain, some spice, dried fruits, hint of apple. Flavor is caramally and biscuity, light diacetyl note but not over the top. Lower bodied and easy to crush. Lingering sweetness on the palate. Sweeter than an Austrian "Maerzen". Blows a Boston Lager out of the water. 6 pack of this please.

Bottle. Hay, toffee, and roasted barley malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet nutty toffee malt and lightly bitter dry hay flavor. Good body. A good Vienna.
