12oz bottle pours an amber color without much head. Lots of malt at the start but if quickly dissipated to a slight sourness from the carbonation. Starts well ends a little diluted in flavor.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2014 Another poor beer from Wanaka, two tried and both had pretty glaring fermentation problems. This is supposed to be a Vienna-style lager but there’s zero Vienna malt presence. Instead you have strong DMS, sweet and sour grains, syrupy malt extract texture combined with rough seltzer water carbonation. Seems like unfinished kit beer. From draft.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(“Vienna style all malt lager”) 5.0% 330 ml brown bottle purchased in Wanaka and consumed a week later in Dunedin NZ. BB date of ? 2014.
Pours clear deep amber with a small off-white head. Some lacing.
Aroma: Sweet malts with plenty of caramel and a bit of vanilla. A hint of floral hops.
Flavor: very tasty, malt forward beer. More flavor and especially malts than a typical Vienna lager. Enough hops to cut the sweetness and leave a very mildly bitter aftertaste.
Feel: medium-light body; semi-dry finish; smooth; good, medium carbonation.
O: a tasty malt bomb that I recommend with the caveat that it is not true to proclaimed style.
