Gold color. Fairly hoppy for the style and a bit thin in the body. Nothing special.

Kind of a funny taste. Not so bad after a couple of sips. You could do worse.

Pours a medium amber color with a thin white head that dissapated quickly. Smells a little musty, but very minute. Tasted of malts, brown sugar, a bit of citrus, a little bit of hopiness. Nothing to write home about.

Clear copper amber color. Light white head. Nose is malty and a little sweet caramel. Taste is light and a little sweet getting a little malty and full in the middle and finishing with a very light roast. Mouthfeel is clean and fluid. Just a little cloying sweetness on the second taste.

Pours a golden color, decent initial head, kinda soda-pop-lilke looking, though, ok lacing. The aroma was bready, grassy, herbal. Flavor was light caramel, some bready notes, earthy, light grass, not much like the vienna’s I’ve had before, more like a pale lager with a bit more flavor and no corn, just an ok beer. Mouthfeel was light, not super crisp for a lager, balanced (hoppy for a normally more malty style).

Huge thanks to Alex for this Wyoming tick. 12oz bottle into a small tasting glass...Pours a light copper clear body, not appealing. A big head, lots of carbonation, good retention, spotty lacing...A strong malty aroma, lots of caramel and sugar on the front. Toasted nuts and faint floral hops on the back do not hide the light skunk finish...The taste is overshadowed by the super light and watery feel, as soon as it hits my lips I’m bored and disappointed. The taste itself is nothing special, skunk and oak with a caramel finish. The hops are gone. Not much of fan of this. After the brewery hype I’d love to try some of their other offerings, but this is one worth skipping.

Bottle. Pours amber orange with a thin white head. Light sweetness, grainy base, and just a touch of earthy hops. Not bad.

Bottle ordered from the brewery as part of a mixed 12-pack. Served in a pilsner glass. Pours brings a copper-red brew that is mostly transparent with some visible carbonation. Thin white head without too much retention power. Some spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. The nose brings forward a brew with a bit of oxidation along with some light amber malt and bread crust. The flavor falls along the same lines. There is some doughy malt sweetness and a hint of toffee. Very mild earthy hop presence lingering in the background. Medium body with okay carbonation and a bit of an off finish. Drinks decently enough, though I’m not a huge fan. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-04-2011

Bottle courtesy of James at his November 2012 tasting. Pours an amber body with light lacing. Aroma is soft malts and grain. Mouthfeel is light with notes of sweet malts, light wheat, very soft bitter hop and grain. Not bad.
