UPDATED: SEP 16, 2020 From shaken can (pkgd 4May) in tapered shaker. Pours clear ruby-hued bronze w/big tan nitrogenated head that muted aroma. Smooth drinking caramel malt sweetness, creamy mouthfeel, head lasted to the end. LesArgen (679) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2020 Probably should have been concentrating when I opened it. forgot it was a nitro and had to try to shake it after opening. As a result it lacks some fizz, but it still packs a punch. Heaps of malt flavour and lots of hops too. I get notes of vanilla, honey, lemon, caramel and toast. WareHavUBean (102) - Bangkok, THAILAND - APR 11, 2020
UPDATED: APR 11, 2020 Can 375 ml. Followed the instruction. Poured with huge nitro foam on top. Color is dark amber. Aroma is malt leading and also hoppy. Taste malty sweet, loads of caramel, sweet toast, texture is somehow personally like ice-cream. The retaining mouthfeel is creamy and finishing lasted with hoppy citrusy, hint of grapefuit, and piney.
It began malty, creamy, than mid hoppy, lasting hoppy citrus. TedE (2376) - Glen Innes, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2020 355ml can into pint glass. Comes with instructions! A loud PFTTTTT and a huge stream of frothy cream poured out of the can. Hmm, interesting. How did they do that without a widget? Eventually a murky copper coloured beer appears below a large crown of sticky white foam. Nose is bitter sweet, grass, pepper, wood shavings, camphor? Nice lacing. Taste follows the nose. Finish is dry, slightly bitter, smoky. Yeah, it's a Vienna lager but with heaps more flavour. Very nice. KeefOz (3292) - TARRAGINDI, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2019 BB 03 05 20. From a can poured a slightly clouded dark amber with 1cm of cream coloured dense foam that retained very well and laced well. Carbonation high, lively and fine to medium. Aroma of biscuit malt with slight citrus/grapefruit and hints of caramel and maybe pine. Taste of caramel malt, citrus (orange and hints of nuts; moderate bitterness; pale ale-like. Medium body. Very smooth, crisp, clean, refreshing and slight dry with a lingering finish. If only all lagers were like this...

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2019 I love lager, so much more than pale ales, and this was super fun. Followed directions exactly and was pleasantly surprised by the creaminess (and solidness) of the foamy, creamy head. More orange than a regular ale. I can imagine drinking this in a warm English pub. Delicious. Muggus69 (3694) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2019

Fair bit darker than expected (maybe should have read the label first!?) - attractive clean reddish amber body with lovely creamy off-white head that paints thick lace in its wake.
Distinct malty lager aroma - bread crust, cracker biscuit, bran cereal, almost a touch of vanilla; slightly floral hop character especially as it warms.
Good weight about it despite being a moderate strength lager, very fine nitro carbonation lends a lovely smooth creaminess to proceedings - all very well rounded.
Malt is the hero here - toasty, biscuity, bready, crusty, slightly nutty, touch of like brown sugar without being overtly sweet, and oh so clean & smooth. Bitterness is restrained but balanced...did i say smooth? yeah the finish is lovely and rounded.
Glad I tried this - really love this malty style of lager - sort of your Munich/Vienna style - hugely underrated and underbrewed.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2019 Can from Beer Cartel on 24 August 2019. Vienna Lagers are one of the most underrated beer styles but it is a style I am very fond of. Being nitrogenated I followed the directions on the can and shook it 4 times and was rewarded with an amazing smooth pour and a big solid head of foam that looked as though you could bounce a rock off of it. One of my favourite Bridge Road beers. Aroma of caramel and toffee with some nuttiness in the mix as well. Deep caramel colour and a smooth creamy mouthfeel. blaface (230) - Collaroy Plateau, AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2019 Nitro can. Pours clarified dark yellow with dense nitro white head. Slightly bready aroma. Flavour of toasty malt with subtle hop flavour. Spectacular beer; easily smash-able hawthorne00 (6381) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2019 Can on a cold night in Melbourne. Amber with a dense 3/2cm head. Aroma of toasted sweet buns, tinned passionfruit, light spices. A taste reveals some mandarin too. Has that 'as heard through cotton wool' muted palate but prickles of fruit and decent bitterness cut through at the end. Not really my sort of thing but is what it set out to be.
