Poured into a pint glass.

First off I want to say....what a beer. Delicious and refreshing.

Poured a really nice pale copper with a great 2 finger head. The head lasted about halfway down the glass. Pretty impressive.

It smelled of small biscuity malts. Not too much hop essence but it was there,

The taste is what blew me away. I couldnt believe a vienna style lager could taste so good. It had lots of malt with a nice bitterness from the hops that takes over and blances it out right away. I drank my first glass in a few minutes because I needed that taste over and over. Definetely a great beer to mow the lawn with.

It was excellent consistancy too. Perfectly carbonated and not too rich so it made it very very refreshing all together.

One of the most drinkable beers Ive ever had. Light and crisp...but in the good way. Easily the best session lager Ive had yet. Bring this to a party for BMC drinkers and they will more than likely give up there commercial world of crap and join us in the wonderful world of craft.
