12oz can. Amber copper color with creamy tan head. Biscuit malt lemon citrus aroma. Flavor is a hint of citrus but mostly that earthy flavor you get from noble hops. Biscuity malt an a slightly bitter dry finish. Would have guessed it Bavarian if I didn't already know it was from Utah.

12oz bottle. Amber color, tall white foam. Smells of malts. Definitely an Amber Lager of even a Vienna. Tastes of lightly toasted cereal, earthy hops notes. Wooded flavors in the finish. Perfect to drink with a meal. (4288)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear amber with a fairly thick and fluffy eggshell head. Aroma is malty and a little fruity, not particularly strong or impressive. Malty flavor is not complex, but very drinkable; hints of vanilla and honey pop up as it goes across the palate. Texture is smooth and a little fizzy, average but still pleasing. If not a memorable beer, certainly good by itself or with a meal.

Clean and soft copper amber pour with two fingers of sticky dirty white head. Nose is grainy and bready with toasted malt and earthy notes. A light grassy quality and touch of sweetness show as well. Dry on the finish. Bready and toasty innocuous malt profile with a light hop character showing. Somewhat vegetal character.

Decent Vienna lager, beautiful pour, average sweet malt aroma and taste. Orange copper body and immediate fluffy head. Medium weight, but no winter spice, as others have mentioned. Pure Vienna all the way.
