A good beer with a great flavor. I felt this needed more flavor and maybe more time with the hops. Lagers are tough to brew So I understand the hard work.

Clear copper appearance, moderate head formation. Nutty, slightly sour fruity aroma. Smooth palate, creamy, nutty, mild chocolate, mild balancing bitterness in the finish. Not my favorite style but a pretty tastey version.

Cappadonna (110) - Delray Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Light golden brown with white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of pumpkin. The flavor is sweet and malty. The palate isn’t as "sticky" as its Oktoberfest cousin.

jcwattsrugger (11076) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2007
12oz bottle-pours a retaining foamy off white head and amber color. Aroma is medium malt-caramel. Taste is upfront earthy/wood-hops, quickly overtaken by medium malt-caramel and some grassiness from mid taste through finish. Nice. OK carbonation.

riversideAK (5591) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2007
Thanks Kyzr for the bottle. Golden orange color. Very thin white head. Definite grassy and spicy aroma with some fruity malt sweetness too. Maybe its apples? Toasted caramel malts, some sweetness and an awesome earthy crisp finish. Has a cider like quality to it too. A tasty beer.

Pours apricot in color with a cream head that dies slow. Smells of sweet malt. Tastes a little caramel and some fruit sweetness. Finishes with a minor hop bite. As balanced and subtle as a brew gets. Light and crisp in the mouth. Goes down smooth and easy.

Dredd (687) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2014
Now when I look this up and it references this as a Vienna lager it makes sense. Nice slightly caramel aroma, nice malt sweetness and a balanced finish. Good job.

MadRobin (1861) - Silver Spring, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Poured from 12 oz. can at the Merry Piglets, in Jackson, WY. Clear, bright medium amber with a 3-finger light khaki head and very good lacing. Aroma of bread, caramel, toasted malt and lemon. Taste of toasted malt, caramel, bread and herbal hops. Medium/light body and medium/high carbonation with a very foamy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
