A - Pours a golden amber with reddish tint. A thin finger of head is short-lived yet leaves behind some flicks of lace.
S - Not a huge punch of aroma but what there is is quite malty, caramel and honey particularly. Floral hops complement.
T - Nice balance of hop and malt. Citrusy tang and caramel, biscuity sweetness.
M - Good carbonation, moderate body.
O - A top option if looking for a session beer with plenty of flavour.

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).
