Malted aromas, roasted, caramel, slight hopped. The taste is soft and sweetened, caramel, below average bitter and spiced with floral notes, cereals and hay. Clear dark golden color, small white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, a bit sweetish, something else I can’t identify. Average body and carbonation. Balanced for a Vienna style. Rather bland and deserves a below average arting in my opinion.

My first Italian beer, I believe. Best by October 30th 2014. Poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance: A murky orange sort of color with a fizzy head on top that leaves a wispy amount of foam on top of the beer. Sediment at the bottom of the glass. Basically no lacing. The bottle itself is sort of fancy... I'm not sure of the cost of this beer, but they get their own glass made for their beers.

Smell: Sweet, bready/biscuity malts with a good bit of caramel notes in there as well. I pick up a sort of adjunct-like corn aroma as well, but the ingredient label (to my surprise, there is one) lists only water, barley, hops, and yeasts. It gives that sort of aroma though... just a bit. Still smells pretty decent.

Taste/feel: Actually surprisingly decent. Hops are there in a subtle but welcome way to take away some of that sweetness (this really is a pretty sweet tasting beer). Finish is a touch spicy from hops, and a little bitter, but more sweet than anything -- in that way, it reminds me of an adjunct lager. Also, the carbonation is pretty high. Pretty thin mouthfeel also makes this an easy one to drink. An inoffensive and pretty decent beer overall. Much better when it's quite cold, as the beer starts to taste sort of "cheap" the warmer it gets.

Dark orange pour, lots of fizzy strings sustaining a half finger white head, but not for long, and a nice curtain and traces are left as it subsides to a small lace.
Smell of biscuits and caramel, mostly malty, with some oranges, some faint grassy hops, apple peel, pretty much a Vienna lager, as they say on the label.
Taste surprises with quite a lot of citrus up front (orange, lime, grapefruit) and the biscuity maltiness falls second, with lots of caramel and some faint floral honey notes. Finishes with some mildly spicy hops and a decent bitterness, but there's also a small bad lagery note in the aftertaste, that reminds of not-so-fancy looking and bad-tasting beers.
Medium body, aggresive carbonation, not one to chug down.
It's a decent beer, especially if you don't expect anything extraordinary.
