A: Pours a clear golden amber with a compact white head. Little streams of carbonation are very noticeable once the beer settles in the glass.

S: The nose is dominated by herbal, grassy hops, though caramel is present in the background.

T: Very nicely balanced with notes of lemon, caramel, biscuits, grass, herbs, lime, minerals, and straw on the palate. The finish is hoppy and cleansing with spicy, grassy hops asserting themselves.

M: Medium bodied and dry with firm carbonation.

O: This is a really nice Vienna lager that is not nearly as heavy as some interpretations of the style. Though this may not be the most exciting craft brew out there, it has stood the test of time and is deserving of its reputation as an American classic. If you haven't tried this beer, ignore the detractors and give it a fair shot.
