The hops flavor is a little stronger than I prefer, but I do like it. It is more expensive than other amber beers whose taste I like better, so I doubt I will buy this again.

bigtaster (991) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2017 Dark brown, mostly clear, finger of white head. Nose is corn, with bits of roasted malt, some yeast, hint of chocolate. Light body, high carbonation, sweet. A bit of the cheap adjunct in the finish with unpleasant bitterness, if that wasn’t there this would be a good beer.

Nothing special here, it's just a basic dark lager style beer. It used to be more intriguing before all the breweries popped up, now it's plain ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hauxe (837) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2017
Pours brown from the bottle with a stable off white head. Frothy. Very little aroma apart from light roasted notes, but was served extremely cold. Taste is caramel, a sweetness with mild sassafras inflections. Finish is short and unclean.

Rhofpheh (25) - SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2017
It has a nice dark amber colour to it and a lovely bready aroma, but the slightly sour and bitter taste is a little sub-par.

jobe977 (114) - Töreboda, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2017
Bottle fr.o.m. Systembolaget. Pours clear amber with medium white head. Aroma is malty and bread-like. Very well-balanced taste with a somewhat sweet finish and nice relaxed aftertaste. Easy to drink!

Bierridder_S (974) - BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2017
03/07/2017 33cl bottle @ a Mexican Restaurant in Langeleidsedwarsstraat, Amsterdam. No idea on the appearance because it was served in a bottle with a lemon on it. Why? Probably because it nearly had no taste and aroma. Faint grainy, no hop. Taste is faint, watery, pfff, Up yours Carlos!

superspak (5694) - Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2017
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 12/17/2016. Pours crystal clear reddish copper/brown color with a 1 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malts and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, spicy hop; and slight roasted bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes presence. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy/creamy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.4%. Overall this is a great Vienna lager. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Great rich Vienna/Munich malt flavors, with balancing noble hops. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
