Brisk flavor, rich ruby color, and extra crisp finish create a sensation that will ripple the taste buds of the most discerning palate. This medium bodied lager is brewed with a blend of the finest hops and gently roasted malts.

33cl brown glass bottle served into a kitchen glass in Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live.

A: Four finger head of fair cream, decent thickness, and good retention. Clear copper colour.

Sm: Caramel, nuts, and light cream. A mild strength aroma.

T: Caramel, nuts, and light cream. In that order, actually. The nuts are a bit too restrained. Not complex, but decently built. I guess it's balanced alright.

Mf: Smooth and wet, but a bit too thick for the flavours.

Dr: Cheap enough, and pretty drinkable, but a bit too close to watery for my tastes. I won't have it again, but serious fans of the style might enjoy it.

Poured fast and furious to create and equally pissed head of three fingers, vienna titled on the bottle, vienna sausage in color. Some sweet malts and raspberry mesquite notes on the nose. The flavor profile matches nose but with less pronunciation. I let warm a tad and unsalted pretzel bread comes into the background but nothing else. The body is barely a light middleweight contender as is the subtle mini-bubble carbonation.

Overall I'm not sure why they didn't blow up this style to a bigger beer. There are good flavors here but really this is one of the most pedestrian "craft" beers ever.

Pours an effervescent amber with 2 fingers of beige head. Minimal head retention & lacing

S: Cereal notes, along with pears

T: Follows the nose, some caramel & dryness up front as well. Some woody hops mix with pears & oaky notes as this warms. Finishes crisp with hints of oakyness & watered down apple juice

MF: Light bodied, firm carbonation, okay balance

Not that great an example of the style, pass on this one, lack any real flavor or depth
