A-Pours a crystal clear light amber color with a very tanasious off white head that leaves great lacing for a lager. Very impressed with the head retention! It stayed the hole way down the glass. VERY IMPRESSED!
S-Floral hops up front then a little spicy hops. Slight roasted caramel malt too. Very nice nose.
T-Flavor is medium malty first then fades to a soft bitterness that lingers well. A little residual earthy hop flavor that is very nice in the back.
M-Very creamy for a lager. It's not crisp and "light" like the norm. Very nice indeed. Medium bodied.
D-Very drinkable. I could session this like no bodies kidding yo. :) I highly suggest this one.

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).
