Blood on the blade. Pure is the hand. A tangent back to where we already were. A beer that we should have made years ago. Made only with German Pils and Vienna malts, we then step mash before a hearty decoction, as rite of tradition. The beer is then fermented low and slow. under pressure, collecting natural carbonation along the way. We gave it a proper lagering and stuck it in these vessels for your repeatable enjoyment.

A: Pours a clear medium to dark reddish copper in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate dark amber + honey + medium garnet red + dark golden yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense sudsy foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a large handful of small patches of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of toasted + bready + caramel malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness. Light to moderate aromas of lager yeast and a light aroma of spicy + earthy hops.

T: Upfront there are slightly stronger than moderate flavors of toasted + bready + caramel malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by a slightly heavier than light flavor of lager yeast. Finally there is a light flavor of spicy + earthy hops which contribute a light amount of bitterness which lingers slightly before fading away leaving a relatively clean finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp upfront with a smooth finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a pleasantly lightly crisp and smooth mouthfeel. Enjoyable classic malts + hops flavors in this beer. Nice example of the style. Happy to drink a couple of these.

Pours into a becker a clear rich amber color with a half finger off white head atop.A solid mix of caramel,toast,and a healthy dose of spicy hops.A grainy fuller feel in the mouth,caramel and toast upfront on the palate with only moderate sweetness before a drying slightly earthy and quite spicy finish.A well made Vienna lager with a very good hop presence.
