Not realizing it was an amber lager, specifically, imagine my surprise at seeing the bright and transparent medium orange brew that sits in my glass. Some slow champagne-like activity continues well after the head has been built, up to a finger but not exceeding half when finished. It sticks it out, though, sturdy and creamy, dropping down lace consisting mostly of patches.
Woody and vinous on the nose offer a dryness that's offset by caramel. There's a pale and grainy note to the malts, and it finishes with some breads.
The tongue gets a tart and sweet fruitiness along with caramel, breads and wood, maybe a hint of pith, and a nice bitterness for a lager of the like.
This beer is easy to drink without being light, as the medium body keeps up with a refreshing cleanness and a crisp bite. Carbonation stays even and keeps it smooth, too, with a nicely linger finish balancing fruity sweetness with bitterness.

Pours a clean orange-ish color with a light tan head. In the aroma a sweet malt, with a small note of gingerbread. In the taste, a small sweetness, clean and muted. A small hop bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a note of dryness and a decent presence of hops. A basic and fresh Vienna lager.

Amber lager. Not a style you see much of. Lots of malts going on here. Nice woody and mildly sweet tone to it. Very smooth. Maybe I forgot how nice a beer this was? Or maybe I just haven't had it before. Either way, it's a good beer. Definitely suggested.
