12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a very pretty, semi-cloudy, deep, amber color, with a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Not much in the way of aroma, but I do get some faint notes of toasted malt, black pepper and caramel.

Taste: Pretty good. Lots of toasted malt up front, biscuit-like and bready, followed by some caramel and honey-like sweetness, black pepper and coriander, and a touch of floral, grassy, piney hops at the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied crisp, and nicely effervescent as there is quite a bit of carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 4.6%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a nice beer, a really well-crafted American-version of a Vienna lager. Malty and bready, slightly sweet, with a kiss of hops, all wrapped up in a crisp, refreshing, satisfying, easy to drink quaff. If you like Vienna lagers, you’ll like this one.

Very crisp and carbonated this Vienna lager presents a ton of caramel sweetness and natural barley grain. The sweetness is a touch overpowering and doesn't allow this to be as drinkable as I would have thought.

Pouring a cellar temp bottle into a snifter. The beer pours a clear chestnut color with fizzy off white head of 1 cm foaming up and fading to a thin edge layer pretty quickly after the pour. Aroma is toffee and caramel with a bit of biscuity note as well. Maybe a little bit of herbal hops but these are very mild and in the background.
First sip reveals an average body with very fine tingling carbonation and a smooth texture.
The flavor is sweet toffee and some biscuit malt up front that flows to just a bit of herbal tea hop bite on the finish. Very easy to drink and no offensive notes on this beer. Simple straight forward lager.
