Enjoyed from the can in a snifter via a friend from work---Thanks Justin!
This nice lager pours a clear ruby tinged amber with a moderate head of white foam that subsides to a thin ring, thin layer, and very light lacing. Nose of lightly toasted malts, subtle breaded notes, and light caramel and grain notes. Flavors follow the nose with a decent grain bill in support of lightly toasted malts with a touch of light herbal hops note. Decent mouth feel finishes clean, lightly crisp, and mildly sweet. Overall a decent brew.

Cheers

I had a friend pick this up for me at Sun King. I poured it from a 16 oz. can into a clear teardrop glass. It pours s nice golden with a pale head. I really like this lager!

On tap into a pint glass

A - The beer is a slightly amber, almost copper color and is clear with light carbonation visible in the form of small bubbles rising slowly towards the surface. There is a thin white head that dissipates very quickly to a thin lacing. 3.75/5

S - The aroma is chiefly of caramel and a very sweet maltiness along with dark stone fruit. The aroma reminds me of Grape Nut O's cereal. Herbal and noble hops seem to be present with a very clean aroma profile overall. 4/5

T - Malty and caramel sweetness pervade throughout the first 2/3 of the flavor profile with medium toasted white bread, Grape Nut O's and caramel being the specific flavors. There is a light smoke and pepper that come out once the sweetness has died down a little along with a bit of rye and coriander. A light grassiness and it accompanying bitterness make themselves known right before the finish with a light lingering bitterness that hangs around briefly before disappearing. 3.75/5

M - Smooth and creamy with a light to medium body. Wet and coats the tongue nicely from front to back with just a light carbonation tickle. 4/5

O - Straightforward and well executed Vienna Lager that has a nice sweetness but it is a bitter more bitter than expected. Moderately complex flavor profile allows those appreciative of the simple to be placated while those who appreciate complexity can be satisfied as well. 3.75/5

Pours a dark Amber brown one finger head. Smells of some grassy and herby hops. Banana and pear. Almost a Brett's yeasty quality to the aromatics. Taste is really clean and invites drinking. Bit of the hops. Bit of Apple. Bit of grapes like a white wine. And then that's it, doesn't linger a ton. It just begs to be drunk. Refreshing mouthfeel/carbonation level. Overall, you'd think a lager marketed to be drunk at a baseball event may skimp on flavor and aromatics. I don't think that is going on here. This is a very good beer. Props again Sun King.

This may seem like nothing special, but for a local AAA team's beer selection, it is far and away the best option. This beer always hits the spot on a nice warm day at Indian's Field.

Looks like a Vienna lager, but taste seems to be directed to the Bud Light crowd. Disappointing for a Sun King offering. I expected something much better.

A - A dark brown, mostly transparent brew, with a small, light head and not much lacing. Looks right.

S - Like many Sun King brews, the nose is quiet, not revealing much. A subtle malty sweetness seems right.

T - Tastes right. A nice, full malty caramel hit, with decent but subtle bittering in the close.

M - Clean and refreshing, as one would hope for a beer themed on a day out at the ballpark.

O - Delicious Vienna with great caramel flavors. Glad I tried this. The cans are a touch pricey for my regular rotation, but on tap at Symphony on the Prairie was a welcome option.

Fairly clean malty lager with a big caramel malt flavor and a hint of fruit esters. I dont pick up any distinct hop flavor, but the beer's well balanced and very drinkable. Lovely summer option.
