3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2012 multiple bottles. made with cornmalt, so I guess fitting in with the classic American lager more than vienna, but whatever. really quite interesting, flavorful and well-balanced, from first sip to last. striking malt cleanliness with a wonderfully toasty corn kernel and barley and wheat malt character; minimal yeast but what is there is doughy and adds to the richness. clean semi-sweet flavor of toasted grains and just-caramelized honey, and the bottle conditioning provides a firmness and denseness which with the light body is well-suited. flavorful rigid malt, moderately hopped, pillow firm carbonation, light, low hop-rate... sticky and snappy but never too big or sweet. a malt showcase. superb! and from the bottle! would love to try on tap but never found it. 5.2% toasty firm / full carbonation bottle-conditioned lager. there’s a balance reached in this beer that NAILS it for me. reminds me of Ayinger Jahrhundert. god damn I love lager. ernie and jeff your bottles await you!

50 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. Rated on 23.05.2011
Aroma is rather hoppy and fresh with some bready malt. Flavour has rather nice hops with exotic fruits and hints of grass. Also some bready malt. Refreshing vienna.
