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.
