Great fruity aroma, nice malty body, some great caramel and toffee flavors, never gets bogged down in too much flavor, nicely balanced, and very crisp and clean. Easy to drink, and not too light.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Best Before October 2005 bottle from Liquor Mart. Consumed on 11/30/05.
Rusty copper colored beer, lightly hazy with just a trace of yeast settling out on the bottom. Some brighter strawberry red hues and an off-white head with fair retention and lacing, eventually receding to cover. In the nose is a lightly sour note, perhaps munich grains, and a hint of dry fruits (unripened berries, unripened nectarines). Dry, husky malts on the end. Smells just a touch metallic at first, but this passes. The flavor has plenty of medium-dry caramel, soily, lightly bitter hops and dry breadiness lingering. Moderately crisp yeast on the finish as well. Carbonation is moderate, pretty average for the style, while it has a lightly watery texture, though itís not thin by any means. Surprised to find this is 6% abv, as it masks that very well and comes off as a very low gravity, albeit well-malted, session lager. Very even maltiness, not the most complex, but does provide bread, fruits, biscuits and light hops.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Respectable Vienna-style lager. Some malt sweetness but in a restrained way, making this very repeatable. Moderate hop bite which I liked. A surprisingly nice lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Does have a caramel-ish aroma to it. Fairly strong aroma too. Orange/tea colored with a finger thick head. Caramel comes through a again with some hay/grass notes and a lot of marzen characteristics. Strong malt profile. A little sptritzy int he finish despite the mellow maltiness.
