3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub in Vienna. Pours a hazy, dark, brassy amber color with a small, fading head of smooth, beige tinted foam. Settling to a thin film, the head gives pronounced clumps and spots of patchy lacing to the glass. The nose is very hoppy for an amber, bordering on IPA level floral and citrus aromatics. Notes of grapefruit and wildflowers come to mind, brightening up a caramelized cereal grain and buttered bread malt base. Flavors mirror the nose, showing pithy citrus hops, dry grasses, and some pine resin, all over a base of baking sugar-glazed cereal and crusty bread. The palate is medium-light in body, balanced, and slightly papery, making it incredibly quaffable. Nice brew. Very reminiscent of some of the better American hoppy ambers, like Mac ’n’ Jack’s African Amber.
