Malty sweet with caramel after the initial assault of grapefruit hops which is uncharacteristic of the German version. The hop settles down as the caramel malt and sweetness predominate. Perhaps this should be a new style: "Americanized Vienna Lager". There is also a bitter hop note in the finish but overall an excellent example of the style. As a fan of Negra Modelo and Dos Equis I had to try this based on the glowing reviews here at BA.
