Crackery bready malts, graham, and toast in the aroma. Not much in the way of hops, but this may not be the freshest example. Still pleasant, balanced aroma. Slightly sweet. Clean lager character. A touch herbal.

Pours clear light copper with a small white head. Ok lacing and good retention.

Sweet honey, apples, caramel, graham cracker upfront. Toasty and rich. Some balancing hop bitterness but subdued.

Medium light body, medium carbonation. Somewhat sweet, lingering finish.

Overall nice character, drinkable, but a touch sweet.

Impressive amber appearance in color, substantial clarity, head in the 1/3" range, white. Aroma hit those malt sweet notes in the Vienna/Oktoberfest vein.

Taste was smooth, but enough malt to chew on. I know its not down for style, but a little more hops would have been nice, not overly done, but to kick some life into it. Nutty and caramel, the regular stuff is here, could use more carbonation and/or hops though to keep it from seeming too sticky.

pours amber with a decent, white head. starting out ok.

notes of caramel and honey in the nose. honey is very prevalent in the taste.

rinses clean, with nothing lingering. pretty uneventful beer, but does the trick.

Pours brilliant amber with a slight brown tint under a thin, white foam collar. Starts with a light malty sweetness and finishes with a mild bitter hop accent. A clean smooth, flavorful easy to drink amber lager.
