Vienna it ain't.

I swear every time I taste this is seems different. At times thin, or rich, malty, or not, caramel or burn matchstick. It looks like a Dark Viennese Lager but looks are deceiving. I suppose part of my impression is due to drinking this primarily in restaurants but all of them can't have a slow turnover. At it's best it's malty, toffeeish, caramely with enough hops to notice. Most times it's just disappointing. Out of caution I just don't buy it anymore.

But don't listen to me, you may have better luck.

I had this on draught in a restaurant, served in a pint glass with a wedge of lime. The color was a dark reddish amber with a thin, milk-white head and lacing. I think the head would have been more impressive if served at a warmer temperature. The smell was not particularly strong, again probably because of the temperature at which it was served: it smelled of sweet malt and a whiff of caramel. The taste wasn't bad, although there was little to distinguish it: sweet malt, caramel, and some fruitiness. There is a hint of hops at the finish but no real bitterness. This lager has a low ABV and is very drinkable but is also rather non-descript. It's okay at a bar but I would not purchase it to drink at home.
