3.65/5 rDev +21.3%
(“Vienna style all malt lager”) 5.0% ABV / 330 ml brown bottle purchased in Wanaka and consumed a week later in Dunedin NZ. BB date of ? 2014.
Pours clear deep amber with a small off-white head. Some lacing.
Aroma: Sweet malts with plenty of caramel and a bit of vanilla. A hint of floral hops.
Flavor: very tasty, malt forward beer. More flavor and especially malts than a typical Vienna lager. Enough hops to cut the sweetness and leave a very mildly bitter aftertaste.
Feel: medium-light body; semi-dry finish; smooth; good, medium carbonation.
O: a tasty malt bomb that I recommend with the caveat that it is not true to proclaimed style.

Appearance- Dark brown/orange, Small head and low carbonation, yet somehow the beer manages to provide a remarkable amount of lacing.
Smell-Limited roasted malt and slight herbal hop notes.
Taste- A little yeast and harsh malts which come through.
Mouthfeel- An uneventful beer experience, that was to light and bland, even when compared with the other toned down NZ lagers.
Drinkability- Not really my thing and to be honest. A-Its the worst of the three lagers. B-Hard to finish the ~3oz taster. There are much better offerings, so don't waste your time.

Very dark coppery orange ochre, Very little head, almost no carbonation. Doesn't thrill me, but you never know
Toasted malty flavours, no hint of fragrance from hops. Maybe a little sweet fruitiness. Not much though. Very bland.
Very dark malty and yeaty. Not much sweetness, and not much depth. Mouthfeel is very flat, like water. I feel a beer like this needs some fragrance or sweetness to keep it balanced. Just doesn't do it for me...

2.8/5 rDev -7%
Clear, amber colour with a small head.
The aroma is dull with a hint of floral character but not a lot going on.
The flavour is malty and sweet. The sweetness dominates the palate and is disappointing. There is a touch of nuttiness along with light notes of floral hops.
Medium body with moderate carbonation. This only accentuates the sweetness.
Overall, a disappointing, underattenuated lager. Not recommended.
