The color was a medium reddish brown with a medium amount of white foam and some lace. The smell of lightly roasted malts and the aroma of soft hops was evident in to aroma. The taste was one of the best Danish Reds i've ever had. Nicely balanced in aroma and flavor. Suttle and not overly bitter or sweet. What a pleasant surprise.

first time I had this beer was in a bomber that I overpaid for, drank it alone and was not super impressed. tried it again tonight, this time in a 12 oz bottle, with food and found it quite enjoyable, and definitely superior to something like Sam Adams Boston Lager. this is a smooth and easy drinking Vienna style lager, I will drink it again.

Dark amber orange with a fast fading white head. Head looks great when initially poured but simply disappears quickly.

Nose is full on Belgian esters; almost too sweet but very full with sweet cooked orange rind appeal.

Mouthfeel is rich but light and bright and inviting. Well balanced with nice carbonation.

Flavor profile is a nice and inviting "malty/yeasty/bitter" brown. Hints of toast, coffee and light bitter chocolate/roast grain.

Finish is a malty bitter, burnt toast/roasted grain bitter that is long lasting.

Served cool around 45-50º in a tulip glass.

Bright reddish copper color, dense head of foam, good retention. Arcs of lace around the edges, surface of the foam has a creamy texture and a stained parchment color.

Aroma is malt forward, nutty, lightly toasted bread, vague dried fruit esters.

Flavor is clean and also pleasantly malty, bready with a light plum ester, dry finish with trace hop bitterness. Light and medium bodied with very little sweetness if at all. Pairs well with food. Thanks to WST for this one!
