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.

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.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2014
12oz bottle. Bright, hazy, unfiltered orange-tan body. Very thin, but steady off-white head. Pretty true to style. Clean, toasty malt. Medium bodied, very drinkable. Has enough of a noble hop bite and balance to give it an upfront bite and stay interesting. Clean, not cloying or sticky at all. Well made, fresh lager.

Bottle pour amber with toasty malt on the nose and a malty, earthy backbone with a nice lasting head. CaraRed malt for color, Vienna and Munich malt for taste and aroma. Overall, a very nice Vienna Lager.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with white head. Bread, malt, toast aromas. Toffee, toast, caramel flavors. A very refreshing amber lager. Plenty of flavor, yet still very drinkable and tasty. Very nice Sierra Nevada.

jsmerig (1291) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Pours a crystal clear reddish orange with a white head. Aroma of hay and bread. Taste is malty and complex sweet up front with a bitter dry finish. Good balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bork (335) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Solid easy drinking amber lager with a good balance between malt and hops, a clean, crisp finish and a decent body. Low on flavor and aroma.

DATE TASTED: October 12, 2014... GLASSWARE: Weihenstaphaner pokal... OCCASION: Happy sixth birthday, Michael... APPEARANCE: handsome dark amber body; reasonably effervescent; thick, rich three-finger off-white head that settles into articulate Cyrillic arcs and arches ... AROMA: slightly smoky; superior caramel malts; some pepper and peppercorn; some oats and dough late--a burnt toffee ending... PALATE: medium-bodied, slightly creamy; slightly crunchy, with clean finish....TASTE:sweet, tempered toffee malts meld with spirited hops--bright and slightly floral--to develop a symbiotic sip... OVERALL: a crisp, malty/hoppy lager that delivers a sweet toffee reward; a good appreciation of the genre....
