COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delicate balance of toasted malt and fresh hops give this medium-bodied German style lager an intriguing complex flavor. A creamy head, deep golden color and an impressive hop bouquet make this a very special beer.

500 ml bottle. Deep amber coloured brew. Very fresh vienna malt aroma, bread crust, light toast and a hint of brown sugar/caramel. Clean maltiness. Rich and sweet tasting. A touch of faint smokiness appears toward the finish. Soft hoppiness just keeps this balanced, but I can see how some might find it cloying. I don’t and think it’s an excellent example of the style.

Pretty average beer, it is watery for an amber, i had it side by side with the maibock and they were the same color, barely different beers aside form this one didn’t have as much diacetyl as the maibock.

shrubber85 (8582) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Bottle. Light caramel malt aroma. Amber with a small head. Light caramel malt flavor with a light hops finish. A subtle beer - nothing too bold with this beer.

DocLock (8341) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2009
Draft at Craft. Pours gold with off-white head. One of the golder ambers I’ve had. The nose and flavor had hopcitrus, pale male, and some mild fruit, but not a great deal was going on with this one. Average and forgettable for me.

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma has nice toasty maltiness, some bread, caramel notes, a bit of nuts, light grainy hints, and some slightly floral hops. Sweetish malty flavor with some caramel and a bit of toasted bread, finishes moderately bitter with some hops, somewhat floral/herbal. Medium-bodied. A nice quaffable Lager.

On tap @ the Über Tap Room in the Wisconsin Cheese Shop, Milwaukee. Bland sweetish caramel with wintergreen notes. Odd.

Tap. Gold/red pour, very minimal head. Very slight aroma of bread and malt. Pretty good flavor thanks to the hops.

Ibrew2or3 (7344) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Compact 16 oz bottle. Pours more copper than amber with light tan head. The aroma is very light and seems to consist of two different malts. One is a lightly roasted variety, Munich maybe, the other is a bit more roasted. The flavor might have a touch of the lightly roasted grains but it is more roasted malts or slightly nutty. The hops actually come through a bit stronger than the malts. It is a nicely balanced light tasting beer.

Ughsmash (7280) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 21, 2007
16 oz bottle. Poured clear medium amber with a nice initial cap of white head that receded to a film in a minute or so. Aroma found toasted caramel with a nice citrus presence (oranges primarily)... quite pleasant.
Flavor picked up toasty caramel, a hint of marshmallow, cereal notes, and a low-ish level of floral bitterness. Smooth on the palate with the mild bitterness.. a touch soapy on the back-end. Decent brew.

Semi-sweet and moderately bitter. Toasted oat aroma and copper colored body. The finish is smooth, but there is nothing too spectacular here.
