I wasn’t expecting a whole lot but I was very pleasantly surprised--this is a startlingly good beer for the money. From a 12-oz. bottle, this pours a crystal clear orangey-amber with minimal head. No lacing. Decent grainy malt presence in the aroma. Initial taste is nutty caramel with a hint of vanilla, followed quickly by a nice finish of hops. Surprisingly well-balanced and the finish is very clean.

Pours a golden bronzish orange with a small white head. Nice soft and sweet nose, with a nice earthy nose. Great easy drinking lager with a good balance.

This beer is not of my favorite style, but I find that I like it pretty well. It’s medium bodied and very well balanced and eminently drinkable. I think it’s better than what folks give it credit for.

I like this beer a lot. It is a nice, malty, and crisp vienna. Not as complex as most beers, but very refreshing and drinkable. The flavor is malty to start with, followed by a little burst of hops in the aftertaste, which create a dry and refreshing mouthfeel. I think this would be a good beer to go with any meal centered around a spicy non-cream based sauce.

Picked up at Trader Joes. On sale, so I thought, what the hell. Pretty tasty lager. Very Gordon Biersch like flavor. Full bodied, lightly hoppy and incredibly easy to drink.

Bottled. Crisp, autumn orange color, with a small, fluffy head. Biscuit and toast, aroma, reminiscent of a pile of sticks after a windstorm. Crisp and lightly lemony flavor, with a mild sweetness and earthy hoppiness. Light diacetyl.

Started off promising enough with a nice colour and a very nice nose. First few sips were malty goodness, but as it warmed, a strange hopiness crept in.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice clear copper with a medium beige head. Aroma of caramel and some light hops. Flavor has notes of caramel, toasted malt, butterscotch and brown sugar. Pleasantly sweet, not much bitterness detected. Some saaz hops detected in the finish. Medium body with subtle carbonation. Not much lacing, decent head retention. Not outstanding, but solid, drinkable stuff.

I think this was a very good vienna lager. Has a decent balance with some subtle malty sweetness.
