4oz pour at the Max’s Taphouse Beer Camp event. Pours a clear orange with some cloudy, white head. Nose has a real distinct grainy character, nutty like peanut skins, plenty of yeasty dough, a bit of buttered toast. Flavor is spot on, yeasty bread, flicks of orange, some biscuit. Clean finish. So true to style. PorterPounder (8073) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2014

Aroma is caramel, light fruit and malts. The flavor is fruit, caramel, light citrus and a mildly bitter/tart finish. Very easy to drink, among the best in the style. ajnepple (6701) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2014
12 oz bottle from the Sierra Nevada Fall Pack, packaged over 3 months ago and purchased at Biggie Wine & Liquor and poured into my Funkwerks goblet. Light amber-orange, slightly hazy appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of toasted grains, bready malts, floral notes, light spicy hops and a touch of fruit. Similar flavor, smooth and balanced with light malty sweetness and mild hop bitterness. Light to medium body, crisp and pretty clean with ample carbonation. Easy to drink, a pretty decent Vienna-style lager. Probably a bit bitter when fresh. Patrickctenchi (6625) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 16, 2016
