On tap at the brewery. Deep golden body. Smells a little bready. Tastes of sweet doughy malts up front and then becomes toasty and bready. Very light spicy bitterness. Finish is mostly bready and lightly sweet malt. Light body. More flavorful than the other lager I tried and just as well made.

Pours a clear gold color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of wheat, slight honey, slight floral hops, slight pale malt, hint of sweet malt, and slight grass. Fits the style of a German Pilsner. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of wheat, pale malt, caramel malt, hint of sweet malt, grass, floral hops, and slight honey. Overall, good complexity, blend, and body.

Pours a dark amber color with very little head. Smells mildly hoppy, grassy, and wheaty. Tastes somewhat floral, almost bordering on fruity at first with a smooth malty finish. Light carbonation. Overall a good lager with some floral and hoppy tones not present in many other lagers.

I don't really know why I just didn't rate this a 5. I love pilseners and this is one of the best I've ever had (never been to Central Europe though). This is my desert island beer.

This is a Vienna Lager (not German Pils). From 12 oz bottle 2-6-2016

Toasty nose with pleasant bread crust and melanoidin depth. Light copper color with brilliant clarity, fleeting white head. Complete picture of malt for this style - grains are present and in good balance for toast, attenuated malt with medium depth and complexity, and clean lager character. Medium mouthfeel with average effervescence. Great example of this style.

A: Pours a brilliantly clear deep gold, almost amber color into my favorite Weihenstephaner stange. Big, fluffy, frothy bone white head that persists and laces well. Simply beautiful.

A: Smells gloriously of the timeless and noble Hallertau. Spicy, earthy, grassy... Then the sweet floor malted barley comes through. Fresh baked bread, sweet and grainy.

T: Sweet at first, showcasing the cracker goodness with a touch of caramel. The spice of the hops finishes is out with a nice peppery flavor. Simple. Just as it should be.

F: Smooth and so easy to drink. Good carbonation, almost foams up in the mouth, and finishes very dry. Balanced, but maybe a tad more bitter than its German inspirators.

O: This is a wonderful American interpretation of a classic German lager, in the sense that it lacks a little sweetness in the flavor. Not a bad thing by any means, just a truly American touch. I could drink this all the time and never get bored of it. Prost!
