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.

Clean straw gold pour with one finger of crackling off white head. Nose shows lots of bready toasted malt and a lightly sweet character over notes of herbal hops. Flavor shows lots of toasted grain and bread with a nice spicy hop balance. Medium body and spicy almost dry palate and finish.

vyvvy (4000) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours clear golden copper with a large white head. The aroma has clean bready malt, light vanilla, light spicy/leafy hops and mild caramel. It has a medium / light rough body with some fairly sharp abrasive carbonation. The flavor starts really dry with crackers, dry caramel, fruitiness (apple / dried apricot sort of thing), spicy hops and herbal notes. The finish has far more of a hoppy presence than most of the style and remains bone dry. This is a beer you could study for subtleties or drink down quick and not thing much about. Enjoyable.

Aroma is caramel, light fruit and malts. The flavor is fruit, caramel, light citrus and a mildly bitter/tart finish. Very easy to drink, among the best in the style.

Cybercat (3341) - Georgia, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Pours a clear orangy amber with a very thick creamy buff head. Malty aroma has nice hoppy and fruity undertones. Crisp flavor is fairly hoppy, subtly fruity, a hint of vanilla, a little bitter, quite refreshing. Mouthfeel is average, but no big deal. Vienna waits for you.

Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a nice bright orange color with a medium sized head with a little lacing on the glass.

The aroma is clean & a touch faint. It’s got a nice bready character with some toasted malt and floral hop aromas.

The flavor is nice & is generally centered around a robust malt character that is lightly sweet with a toasty bit and some mild caramel. The hop profile balances this all really very well with a nice herbal character and a well employed low to medium level of bitterness. The beer finishes clean and dry.

very enjoyable.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Dry, floral aroma. Kind of sweaty and rich. Nice head. Dry, crisp, refreshing. Cookie and lettuce/cucumber notes. Bready malts and light euro hops. Very very nice. Super sessionable.
