Hoppy fruity aroma, some toast and bread notes, a touch of wood and caramel. Nice one finger head, good rentention and lace, red-orange body, slightest haze. Firm bitterness, toasty malt character in flavour, some hop flavour coming through. Medium body, medium carb.

500ml bottle. Pours bronzed amber with a loose off white head. Nose of toasted sweet malts with distinct marmalade notes. Nice clean palate with similar flavours and a mild hop bitterness. Easy drinking. A good example of the style.

A lightly malted lager which is nice and clean. Good length (for a lager).

Iíve had this beer a couple of times before, but never rated it. Iím sorry. This is me trying to be a better person. Iíve always enjoyed that particular authentic marmitey Germanic yeast aroma that gives warm buttered toast and tangerine citrus. Itís intriguing and an aoma I would be quite happy to have as the last thing I ever smell. The colour is a gorgeous amber that lets off a rocky, fluffy white head. The fist flavours are al mandarin, tangerine and pink grapefruit and then soter tones of fresh bread and roasted hazelnuts. For all intents, this is quite a simple beer, but of a style that you donít see terribly much of here in New Zealand. A thoroughly enjoyable drop made more enjoyable by its rarity.

mkel07 (3383) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2010
500ml bottle. Rich golden orange colour, sunset in a glass with a solid level dirty white head and strong caramel malt aromas that beckon and invite you in. Well balanced malty flavour that hits all parts of the mouth. Robust and moresish . A good effort.

Tap. Nice aromas of apple and nuts. Taste is sweet, with average duration. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Yellow, with a frothy white head.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2010 Aaahh, the good old Vienna Lager. I wonder how many people have really tried a true Vienna Lager? This is a nice beer, well made, and would go quite nicely with a bratwurst.

DuffMan (6738) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2009
Bottle. Clear toffee amber, medium off-white head. Initial aroma made me think of toast with maple spread. Nice toast & toffee flavour, medium bodied, nicely hopped finish of medium bitterness. Tasty, and a nice take on the style (even if they donít use Munich malt).
