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.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear medium hopper with a half finger off-white head. Just ok head retention and lacing but average for the style. Aroma is quite fruity with swirls of toffee and caramel. A quick hit of grassy hops followed by some more fruit. The flavor continues the fruit and grass theme. It is almost a grape/watermelon thing mixed with hay. Sweet caramel follows and provides a nice base. Bitterness is fairly high for the style but it is crisp. Overall, a great shot at a Vienna from Sierra Nevada. A little hoppier and fruitier than most others in the style but it works well here.

12 oz bottle. Pours brilliant amber with long lasting, foamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of grassy hops and bready malt. Body is medium and smooth. Herbal hops, some caramel and biscuit malt fill the mouth. Finish is long and hoppy. Nice, tasty brew.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle from Fall 12 Pack. Glowing amber pour with a frothy white head. Toasty, baked bread and slightly nutty aroma with light floral aroma. Slightly chewy mouthfeel with toasted bread, nuts with some caramel malt and a mild floral accent at the end. Medium bodied and a clean finish. Super drinkable and a great addition.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours with a brilliant clarity. Bready sweet maltiness aroma with subtle fruitiness. The flavor is bready, there is a hop presence that is noticeable, but not overwhelming.

Bottle in pint glass. From Signal Variety Plaistow NH. Aroma is strong bread and caramel malts, light hay, hint of chocolate. Appearance is gorgeous, clear, golden amber with light sparkle and finger-width off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Taste is rich sweetness, caramel with a pleasant mild alcohol flavor. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, average carbonation and slightly bitter, dry (like removed moisture from my top teeth feeling) finish. Overall, this beer is very true to the style and to the brewer’s description (a seeming rarity). Appearance is the big winner but with a nice aroma and taste.

2015 bottle. Color of fall leaves with a milf white head. Very light bready aroma with a smidge of caramel. Taste is toasted bread with caramel and a little spice and bitterness at the end. Well balanced and mild. Nice transition beer from the summer to fall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle, part of a mixed 12 pack. Pours a clear copper with a one finger off white head that recedes to a ring. Minimal lace. Biscuit & honey aroma. Semi sweet flavor. More biscuit balanced with light grassy hops. Medium bodied and easy to drink. Nice.

12 oz bottle, thanks brenn79. Aroma is dough, chalk, caramel. Pours slightly hazy orange with a medium beige soapy head with good retention and a little lace. Taste is sweet, biscuity, spicy, toasty, clean. Body is a little thin, but it’s not a detriment. Possibly the best example of this style I’ve ever had.
