3.88/5 rDev -5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Deep copper/caramel color. Soapy two finger off-white head.
Aroma: Caramel malt. A hint of hops.
Taste: Caramel just like in the nose. A little nutty. Pretty smooth, not much bitterness. Surprisingly there is some heat in there from the alcohol which shows up in the back of your throat.
Mouthfeel: It's got a full body and the right amount of carbonation. Sort of coats the mouth as you drink, which isn't necessarily good or bad. It depends on how syrupy you like your beer.
Final Thoughts: I'm not sure why this beer is so highly acclaimed. It doesn't really live up to the hype for my tastes. I probably won't seek this one out in the future. Although, it gets props for being the best amber/vienna lager I've had.
Serving type: bottle
