L: Pours an amber-red with a slightly off-white, beige head. Lots of nice bubbled, slight lacing left on the glass.
S: Caramel malts on the nose, with some sweet fruits like apples, maybe cherries and a floral honey-like scent to round everything out. An impressive nose.
T: Follows the nose, with caramel sweetness and apple crispness, balanced with honey and a nice toasty, crusty bread character as well.
F: creamy mouthfeel, not overly carbonated, and medium bodied. This is super drinkable.
Overall, this is a delicious beer that is built to be paired with food of all types. I recommend using it to wash down a hearty black-bean burrito with spicy salsa and rich guacamole.

I've only had a few, but all of the lagers I've had from Figueroa Mountain have been excellent (and it's no surprise, then, that they absolutely cleaned up in lager categories at the most recent GABF). This one is full of sweet, caramel malt notes, but nothing cloying, everything cleaning up so very nicely thanks to a healthy presence of lager yeast. Really satisfying in a style that I'd not otherwise expect to enjoy so much.

The color was a medium reddish brown with a medium amount of white foam and some lace. The smell of lightly roasted malts and the aroma of soft hops was evident in to aroma. The taste was one of the best Danish Reds i've ever had. Nicely balanced in aroma and flavor. Suttle and not overly bitter or sweet. What a pleasant surprise.

Stopped by the brewery for a sampler and took home a growler of this. Fun place to visit.

A — Pours a clear amber with a fluffy light tan head, light head retention

S — Bready, earthy, floral hoppy notes

T — complex malty flavor, light bitterness, bready, sweet malt, honey, well balanced

M — Creamy, medium light carbonation, smooth with a dry finish

O — Brought home a growler, easy drinker with great flavor

first time I had this beer was in a bomber that I overpaid for, drank it alone and was not super impressed. tried it again tonight, this time in a 12 oz bottle, with food and found it quite enjoyable, and definitely superior to something like Sam Adams Boston Lager. this is a smooth and easy drinking Vienna style lager, I will drink it again.

Solid but taste like a west coast hoppy lager, not much Danish about it.
