Appearance: Pours with a big head that forms over the amber liquid; nice retention and spots of lace

Smell: Vienna malt aromatics with some earthy/grassy bitter tones

Taste: Bread and caramel forward, with the grassy bitterness building; while the malt profile lingers into the aftertaste, the bitter features dominate

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I am not a fan of the style but this is a pretty good example, if Americanized just a bit to make it more hoppy

Thanks, Texasfan549, for the opportunity

12oz can. Served in a pint glass.

Pours a clear amber body, medium hue with one finger white head, short retention and bits of lacing. Smells of toffee, lightly toasted bread, touch of grainy biscuit, light earth, a bit of floral. Flavour is biscuit, toasted grain, toffee, light caramel, floral bitterness, a touch of resin. Mouthfeel is medium-lighter bodied, smooth and easy to drink, a bit of resinous and floral bitterness on the end.
