3.73/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.
LOOK: Weathered copper, lacing drapes on the glass well.
SMELL: Thick wild herb, toasted bread, sweet floral resin, broth, mineral.
TASTE: Clean, smooth, toasty, faint brown bread, mellow herbal hop, lightly bitter, clean graininess, dry finish.
The malt backbone is just as broad as the hop character. A solid brew from start to finish, more than enough flavor and complexity to make it interesting enough to want more than just one.
Serving type: bottle

3.38/5 rDev -9.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Presentation: 12 oz. brown bottle with a clearly marked best before date, and ingredients (water, malt, hops, yeast).
Appearance: Clear golden-straw colour with a fine white head.
Smell: Very fresh, clean, with hints of malt.
Taste: A light, smooth malty flavour. Splashes of lemon sourness and a distinct hop bite.
Notes: Good drinking all around. This is a traditional lager, with all the characteristics one would expect from "The Pre-Prohibition Beer" as it states on the label.

4.2/5 rDev +12%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75
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).
