KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 1, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2011 Bottle. Poured a murky orange in color with a small white fizzy head that was fully diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was of sweet malts with a light citrus hop scent. It tasted bitter and rather malty at first and finished with a nice biter-sweet hoppy flavor that stuck around on the taste buds for and average amount of time. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body with and creamy yet dry texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a great lager with a nice mix of maltiness and bitterness.

nimbleprop (5347) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2015
16oz pint at Clyde’s in Chinatown pours a clear amber with some creamy, white head. Nose is fine, some yeast, some bread, a little root veg, some mild soap, not much else. Flavor has a rusty penny thing happening, some muddle citrus, but mostly just yeast and bread. Merciful, clean finish.

JDBaker11058 (1415) - Maryland, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Appearance: medium light amber; clear, with a short off-white head. Aroma: light caramel malts, hint of toffee, bit of grass and light fruit. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: very short, with a slight grassy minerality (maybe a hint of metal) lasting the longest. Notes: This would actually be a better Oktoberfest beer than their own Oktoberfest/Marzen ("Festie", it’s called). Bottle from Total Wine and More, McLean, Virginia.

EithCubes (5138) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Nose is sweet and floral, juicy citrus -- really nice effect from noble hops -- and a lightly grainy toasty malt character. Pours orange-golden with strong carbonation and a soapy beige head. Oily light body, plenty of malt and juicy citrus juice, light toasting and crisp, dried out, very low bitterness, clean and lightly floral. Reminds of some recent improvements to authentic German Pilsner, especially in the hop department, but the malt is thin and a bit weak, bit tired despite the mild refreshemnt.

Darkmagus82 (1898) - - JUL 20, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 7-7-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a light amber/golden color with a thin white head. The head fades fast to leave very little lacing. Smell – Mainly of bread and some yeast aromas as well. Mixed with this is a somewhat sweet caramel aroma with lighter hop aromas of floral nature. Taste – A lightly toasted flavor meets the tongue initially. There are light sweet notes of fruit; citrus and some peach and apricot. As the taste advances a light hoppy flavor comes to the tongue. These flavors take the taste to the end and leave a rather pleasant semi sweet/ slightly hoppy flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body is on the average side as well as the carbonation level. Both are quite fitting and appropriate for the flavors of the beer. Overall – Easy to drink, but again nothing to special. Good flavors, but nothing to go out of the way for.

Cybercat (3681) - Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a decent white head. Aroma is malty with an undertone of apple. Flavor is crisp, malty and a little fruity, not special but palatable. Texture has average fizz and viscosity. OK, but definitely drinkable. Good with dinner.

ADesenberg (662) - Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle: pours a slightly reddish color with a very light tan head. Aroma is malty sweetness.. It’s flavor is super sweet, like it should be. Not my favorite style, but it’s very good. Not the best Vienna lager.

Bierkrug (2132) - - FEB 14, 2014
330 ml bottle in Virgina. Poured a slightly hazy orange/amber with a large thick off-white head. Orange notes in the aroma with a slightly tart yeasty quality. Taste is slightly sweet with some bitter hops. Orange in the finish with some skunky notes. Overall decent, but not that great.
