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.

Had this while visiting my brother-in-law in Santa Ynez.

Poured into an American pint glass. More blonde than red, I was expecting more of a darker (red?) beer, judging by the name. 1/4" head which dissipates towards middle of beer. Smells decent, no off-aromas, but also somewhat nondescript. First taste is odd - almost like cardboard. This beer is as dry as a bone, which makes the bitter stand out even more than it probably should. Taste is of candied sugar, almost Belgian, which would also explain the extreme dryness of this brew. Good carbonation levels, and a tad on the watery side for a Vienna Lager, which should have more body/mouthfeel.

Not bad, nice to see more lagers, but this really wasn't something I will go back to.

Serving type: on-tap
