Thanks to Tim for generously sending this one along. Found in the back of the fridge and figured it would go well with some soda bread and watching golf.
12oz bottle poured into shaped Dogfish pint glass.
Bottle graphics: 5/10.
A: Nice light amber color with standard head and perpetual lacing. If something can look refreshing, this surely does.
S: Malty and grassy with some spice to it. The aromas bring to mind a pilsener but more on the sweet spectrum of things.
T: Just like it smells, refreshing. There is just a touch of bitterness that rounds off the sweet malt falvors. This is a good vienna lager that has unique taste to it rather than a simple run of the mill crisp.
Bready and toasty, goes down incredibly easy. Has the toasted malt flavor of a fine red ale in my opinion, and that is what makes this one stand out some. Hallertau hops offer the right aspect of bitterness.
M: This is probably where this one falls short, too much carbonation. Takes it from the refreshing taste over the top with just too much zip.
D: Its drinkable but needs to tone down the body some. If it was local, would love to give it a go on tap, I strongly think it would do it better justice.

A: brownish brick red in color, clear with a finger tip of white head, no noticeable lacing.
S: Like most light lagers, not a lot to smell here but there are noticeable malty toasted scents.
T: This is a pretty malty brew, sweet, soft but hoppy notes at the finish. Leaves a sweet, mildly bitter after taste.
M: Light bodied, medium to high carbonation, which confirms the smell and taste.
Overall: Good solid light bodied malty style lager, though may not be right for those who do not enjoy the malty sweetness.
