What can I say? It’s a bit toasty lager! Its nose is full of caramelly and malty sweetness. It has a beautiful color: golden-amber with barely off-white head. Mthere is no hop aroma and not much bitterness, though it does have a slightly vegetal kick(...my first thought was ’asparagus’). But it is what it is, a lager.

Bottle. Pours a very clear but dark amber color with a small head. Nose is a little toasty, actually. Slight toasty flavor, too, with some great malty tones in there. Good lager...

This is an interesting red winter lager, yeasty and a bit of chocolate. Bottle pours a dark red-brown with a medium white head. Taste is nutty-malt and finishes almost like a light stout.

At least it tastes like a lager, where many Viennas taste like ales. 4% can ruin a style that is usually strong, but it does not seem to hurt a lager. Not a bad beer overall.

On Tap – Light brown color with a thin head. The lager had a malty flavor with some light spices in the finish which was also very dry. Some smokey and deep dark malts used.

Bottle. Aroma of bittering hops, soft berries, lager yeast, toasted malt. Flavor has an herbal woody feel with the toasted malt and lager yeastiness cutting through. Medium-bodied, a bit on the weak side, though does have a semi-rich, earthy finish. Not bad stuff, but certainly better to be had.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is caramel, toast, slight berry. The flavor is caramel, toast, malty, rich. A nice easy drinking amber lager. Not an interesting beer to me.

Cinnamon caramel oak toast—not a new breakfast cereal but what i smell. I taste Wheat toast, lemon, non-maple syrup. Clear ruddy amber with a quick tan head A little thin in the mouth. Thin sticky finish.

Medium amber color, small head. Aroma is malty and appley fruity. A medium bodied Vienna. Malts are mild yet flavorful. Hops are also mild. Mild tasting beer, yet it does have some flavor to it. I do wonder how you can get ANY flavor out of a beer that’s limited to 4% alcohol. Nothing really good or bad to say about this beer. Drinkable but nothing special. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is malty.

I say this beer lands on the ale side. Malty aromas. Somewhat sweet to dry in the taste. Very little presense of hops. Not too bitter or dry in the aftertaste. Not a bad beer.
