3.93/5 rDev +8.9%
Pours a deep clear honey color with light tan head. Light spots of lacing.
Aroma of honey, earthy, slighty spicy european hop and medium roast caramel malt.
Clean, crisp malt and more earthy hop with pepper bite. Nice german flavor.
Medium mouthfeel and well attenuated.
An above average vienna lager.

Pours a nice copper color with a bit of a tan head that doesn't stick around too long.
Smell is mainly malt, little bit of yeast as well.
Bit sweet, notes of caramel and toffee. Has a bit of nuttiness, and some hop bite at the end.
Not a bad feel, carbonation is a bit high, making itself known on the tongue.
Not a bad beer overall. Others in this style have more hops presence than this one, which is a positive to me. It is a touch sweet, but the nut flavor and hop bite at the end balance it nicely. Easy drinking and worth a try.

On tap at Village Pub in St. Anthony, MN. Pours a copper brown with one finger almost white head.
Nose: caramel, honey, brown sugar, dark berries.
Taste: caramel malt, aspirin bitterness, honey, graham cracker.
Finishes clean with light bitterness and lingering sweetness. Quite drinkable, nothing spectacular but I'd drink it again.

This beer pours a cloudy orange-amber color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes quickly into minimal lacing. The aroma is of caramel malt with a fairly strong sourness to it. It smells more like a Berliner Weisse than a Vienna Lager. It's not a bad aroma. On the contrary it is actually quite pleasant. It just isn't what a Vienna Lager should smell like. The taste is a lot less sour then the aroma, but there is still a faint hint of sourness in the background. Up front there there are some nice caramel notes with some light floral hops. I think I would like it a bit better if the sourness were a little stronger. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation for the style. Overall, I'm not sure if something is off or if the brewer really did intend on this beer beings slightly sour. Either way I can't see myself drinking this one again.

12 oz bottle acquired as part of a mixed pack from Princeton Liquors in Maple Grove, MN. Poured ~4C into a Duvel snifter.
A: Slightly hazy, reddish brown with a great stiff 1+ finger white head that drops to a lasting small cap that leaves little globs of lacing.
S: Nutty with some biscuit. Initially (and off & on throughout the pour) a strong soapy / buttery aroma dominated that seemed off.
T: A very clean beer with a solid malt profile with caramel, biscuit and bread malts. A hint of hop bitterness plays against an otherwise smooth sweetness.
M: Biting carbonation with sweetness and bread flavours that linger.
O: A solis, sessionable lager. Worth buying.
