I was thinking recently that there need to be more Vienna style Lagers out there on the marketplace. Very cool artwork of an upside down butterfly, or pixie looking thing. Pour reveals a robust looking red ale, with a big crusty white head. Some rye bread is present in the nose, along with some caramel like sweetness, and a great malt overtone. Taste has some nice floral hops, bread like malt, and a touch of earth. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and really well balanced in the way the malt and hops play off of one another. Drinkability also receives high marks from me, as it makes for a well executed session beer. Great stuff here from Magic Hat. I would have thought this was an ale if I did not know any better. Although it may be a tad bit soon to be releasing your Spring seasonal when it is only January, I cannot complain too much, as it was a nice beer to have after a long day of work. Cheers to Magic Hat for nailing this style, and please keep it around for a while.
