A: The beer is crystal clear amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short off white head that quickly settled down, leaving some small specks of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Faint aromas of toasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having a bit stronger flavors of toasted malts along with some hints of associated sweetness. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and somewhat smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be a lot lighter in body compared to other Vienna lagers but goes down rather easily.

Fizzy amber with loose eggshell head. Red berries and red lemonade on the nose.
Cloying red currant jam up front, tinny, with a touch of autumn leaf at the end.
Caramel finish and a dry-ish linger. Light to medium, crisp, and slightly chewy.

In spite of the florid labeling, pretty certain this is not an ale of any type, but a tarted up lager.

A lightweight imitation of English bitter. Far too sweet to be good in any way. Not undrinkable, but doesn't really resemble any known style.

Weird East European marketing-driven Franken-beer.
