3.23/5  rDev -1.5%

poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass

A-amber colored with a less than finger head that fades quickly to a partial ring

S-faint carmel malt and bread but nothing that really stands out

T-starts out with nothing much like any BMC but this one actually provides some flavors as it stays in your mouth like the smell it is a little carmel and bread

M-ok carbonation a little thin though

O-not bad for what it is, I have definitely had worse and will probably get some more of this

Sampling right now on 1/16/14. Promoted by Hy-Vee's here in the mid west.. Single bottle cooled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

This brew doesn't list the alcohol content (ABV) at all, so I am guessing around 5.3%. This "Vienna Lager" style brew pours a pretty amber in color with about a finger of foamy off-white head. Some lacing was seen with each sip. The aroma of caramel hits your nose at first and bread. the taste is about the same with a good caramel malt taste. No harsh or bitter 'hoppy' taste at all as I wasn't sure of how this one was going to be. Carbonation is right where it should be. Overall, a decent brew.

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Clear amber color with about a 1/4 inch of quickly disappearing head. Hardly any lacing at all.

Smell- Faint aroma of caramel malt and bread.

Taste- Bread-like flavor with some caramel malt sweetness and some hop bitterness at the finish.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied with a light amount of carbonation.

Overall- Just an average lager, not bad but not great either.

Pours a nice clear copper color with a white head that dissipates fairly quickly.

Smell has a lot of malt and yeast, overall a bit bread like.

Taste at first reminds me a bit of bread with the malt and yeast. Finishes with a bit of a floral hop flavor.

Decent feel, the carbonation makes my tongue tingle a bit.

Not a bad lager. Nothing really stands out as special, but mo glaring faults either. Goes down easy, and the price is right. If you have a friend you want to introduce to better beers without scaring them off, this one is a good choice.

The new HyVee line of beers. Contract brewed at Stevens Point in Wisconsin.

A - Poured out a clear, copper color with a one-finger, off-white head of bubbly foam. It left minimal lacing.

S - It smelled very malty with some grassy hops.

T - It tasted somewhat spicy with a nice malty sweetness. Some toastiness with a touch of toffee.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied lager with a dry finish.

O - This is a nice Vienna Lager. These Baraboo beers should be affordable options especially for those new to craft beer.
