A: A deep good with excellent clarity. The persistent off-white head is comprised of compact bubbles.
S: A low Noble hops aroma that is a bit earthy and spicy. There is a moderate amount of German malt character although I don't know whether that's Vienna or Munich but I get there. Otherwise a fairly clean lager with no inappropriate aromas.
T: A soft malt flavor at a moderate level. There is a moderate hop bitterness with a little bit of a spicy hops flavor. The balance is about even between the malt and the bitterness. The finish is somewhat dry with a the malt flavor and hops bitterness in the aftertaste.
M: A smooth medium-light bodied beer with moderately-strong carbonation.
O: A good Vienna lager that pairs well with food. This is a flavorful lager but there are other examples that have really impressed me.
