This should be recategorized into the Vienna style I think. It certainly doesnt pour like a pale lager, but rather it is a medium copper color and almost no head. Aroma is mostly hoppy with lots of subtle spices, and herbal/floral hints. Good malt profile- light caramel hints, some bready hints, and a great hop flavor and moderate bitterness. Relatively smooth, and easy to drink. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2004
Good aroma. A bit tart, decent hops and nice malt presence. Caramel-amber clear with off-white lacing head. Low-medium carbonation in a medium body, very palatable. Taste starts out acidic with light sweetness, very little bitterness. Finish has no bitter, a touch of sweetness, and quite a bit of acidity. Sour presence throughout, but has balancing malts. A good session beer. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Draft @ Otto’s. Pours a clear, orange-amber color; light tan head with fine-bubbled lacing. A bit of caramelized sugar in the aroma. Medium mouthfeel: chewy candy sugar and dried red fruits; the slightest amount of weight in the mouth; fruity malt-forwardness and very drinkable. Medium, sugar and dried fruit in the finish. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - DEC 14, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Aroma is a pale glow of lemony sugars and dusty grains. Pours a clear amber, with a thin rim of off-white. Flavor is a middle dense sugar, with edges of caramel, tanginess and palpable grain husk bitterness. Esters and astringency. I appreciate the malt body, but it gets cut by off bitterness, a curt dry note, and not really any balancing hops. Floorlike. Not digging this. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Pours deep brownish amber with thin beige head. the aroma is mild and fruity with melon, an odd crystal malt touch, and some cotton candy. The flavor is herbal hops, light caramel sweetness, and a touch of grainy sourness. Leafy sweetness comes out for the finish. Not really my thing, but it’s definitely smooth drinkin.

Average lager, the color was a bit darker than most lagers out there, it had a nice reddish tint, nice lacy white head that laced the glass, subtle malty profile, dry finish

BA transfer -
Had at the brewpub. Served in a pint glass.
Appearance – A rusty orange color which formed a nice billowy head. The head slowly faded leaving a it of foam lacing on the cap of the beer throughout the drinking experience.
Smell - Some malty aromas with a little bit of dried fruit perhaps. The smallest aroma of citrus and pine as well.
Taste –A malty and grainy brew. Can pick up a faint hint of hops at the end of the drink, not much; appropriate for the style.
Mouthfeel – A good level of carbonation and a good heartiness in body for a lager. A pretty nice mouthfeel.
Overall – A good beer, not what I would have origanlly expected but a nice surprise.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2006 Great light lager. Lite red color, slight fruity aroma. Taste great every time it hits the tongue, good aftertaste. One of Otto’s great lighter beers. Good one for people who don’t like to take chances on a "beer". Cheers! Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Did not care much for this beer. Very plain. Nothing really special going on with the malts, hops, or any spices. Boring. No need to ever have again.
