look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle was poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer quickly. It is an amber color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Toasted malts, caramel, toffee, lager yeast, and grassy hops.

Taste: Nice toffee and caramel sweetness with bready and chewy Vienna and toasted malts and some bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, malty, medium bodied, some bitterness, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Nice Vienna lager. Very comparable with Sam Adams with a bit more bitterness.

Serving type: bottle
