A 355ml bottle with a BB of June 2012.
Poured into a tulip pint glass. A hazy orange-amber hue with visible sediment and low carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before collapsing. Aroma of sweet amber malt with a pleasant whiff of aromatic hops. Notes of caramel, grain and citrus.
Tastes of sweet malt with a crisp, hoppy bitterness. Notes of caramel, citrus and yeast. The faintest hint of diacetyl in the background, but this doesn't detract from the flavour. Mouthfeel is light but full-bodied for a lager. Seems a little undercarbonated. Mildly astringent. Aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops and malt.
Very nice - would make a great session lager. Slightly sweet malt with a nice aromatic hop character. Very similar to Sam Adam's Boston lager. Good stuff.

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).
