3.58/5 rDev -4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
From the onset this is a beer which flatters to deceive. I want to really like it and it initially looks the part but in time it just doesn't deliver.
Pours nicely retaining a reasonably foamy top on top of a light copper colour with yellow and orange highlights. There's a firm spritziness to the body and while it gives the appearance of being rugged and assertive for what it is the bitterness is pretty lean and one dimensionable. There's also the faint trace of some skinny elastic faded brown rubber bands in there as well.
Little stays with you when you finish as the aftertaste is just a tad too short and thin. I think this suffers from being a beer which, if we are honest, exists outside a clearly identifiable style.

3.61/5 rDev -4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5
Had on draft during the Celtics game at the TD Garden.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a color color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass ad the beer was drank.
Smell: Slight toasted and caramel malts with some lager yeast and citrusy hops.
Taste: Same as above. Balanced and simple.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little bitterness, light bodied, medium carbonation, and a little chewy.
Overall: A good Vienna lager. Not the best, not the worst, but better than average. Enjoyable, simple, and easy to drink.
Serving type: on-tap

S - A nice combination of citrusy hops and malt sweetness.
T - Started with the citrusy hops and ended with a nice sweet malt finish.
M - Good body and carbonation level.
O - A really refreshing lager that could be a great session beer.
