Poured a bright amber in color with a luscious creamy white head. Aroma consisted of malt and a hint of caramel. Nothing else really stood out. Taste is on par for a Vienna-Style lager. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a tangy crispness. Flavors consist of toasted malt, touch of caramel, biscuit and hops. Hop bitterness balances well with the sweetness of the malt. The nose could be a little more interesting on this one.

Mild nose of grainy/toasty malt and spicy hops.

Tastes of slightly sweet and toasty malt with caramel edges. Hop bitterness evenly balances the malt and has a spicy edge to it. Finish is relatively dry and carbonation seems adequate.

A decent enough Amber Lager. The overall flavor profile could probably be beefed up a little bit, but I have no other real complaints.
