12oz bottle, Bruery tulip, best by date stamped in yellow ink on the bottle's neck is unreadable. Received from drabmuh in Secret Santa 2010, much thanks!
Great amber bodied beer, decent off-white head. Creamy enough to hang around the edges.
Lots of floral hop aromas as the label promises. Sweet pale malt with a little juicy citrus.
Very juicy malt and hops. A little honey and 2-row pale with a good dose of floral hops. Low bitterness and a little citric. Some dry saltine lager yeast.
The mouth is actually not as bubbly and spritzy as it should be. Not quite crisp enough. Drying.
I really wish I could get this locally, I hear it's affordable. Great hop flavors.

4.2/5 rDev +12%

Rated to enjoyment, not to style.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy light copper with a 1" thick, rocky head with great retention. Significant visible carbonation. Lacing goes all down the sides of the glass.
Aroma: Fruity, tropical, grapefruit; malty background. It's those Cascade hops! Smells great, but doesn't seem like a Vienna lager.
Taste: Dry, clean arrival, bitter and clean across mid-palate. Dry, hoppy finish. It could use a little more malt, but it is a lager, not an ale, after all.
Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, good carbonation.
Overall: Really pleasant. Because this doesn't quite seem like a Vienna lager, what with the strong American hopping, I'm not going to rate it as one (BJCP does not have a category for American Amber Lager - that's a problem...). This is a beer I could come back to again and again. It is a well-structured, balanced, hoppy craft lager. Easily one of my top five beers of all time. Clean, refreshing, and remarkable (but not a Vienna lager).
