3.4/5 rDev -9.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured in to a pint glass with a light haze in the dark gold bosy. Nice, pillowy, white head.
Aroma was malty with a hint of metallic notes. Some fruity hop aroma to back up the caramely sweetness.
Taste had some light metallic notes as well but mainly had a malty sweetness. Some subtle caramel. Floral and fruity hop flavors with a light bitterness in the finish.
Mouthfeel was light/medium body, medium carb with a crisp finish.
Overall a decent beer with some good drinkability. Mild flavors and bitterness make it easy to consume although slight metallic flavor is a little off-putting.

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).
