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!

Appearance: burnt tan in color with no foam. Highly translucent and clear.

Aroma: bready with cracker and mildly burnt malt.

Taste: mild hops come first that is earthy cereal-like and bitter. The sweetness of the malt comes in next. It's very floral yet a little burnt. Very unique style of malt. Then it's mildly oaky at the finish.

Mouthfeel: light-bodied yet seems most enjoyable in the wintertime thanks to the darker malt.

Overall: flavorful Pilsner that stands out above others for its darker appearance and rich flavors.

Just got back from trip from Bavaria. My standard for simple lagers has gone up so much. So when I tried this I wasn't expecting much. I love their cream ale so was expecting something above average. But wowza. This one could be served on any strasse in Munich and you wouldnt know its not German quality. I love the look on this, a little on the amber side of things. The nose is familiar malt, slight hops, bitter bread. This tastes outstanding. Beautiful subtle hops balanced by the malt bill from the other side of the collab. Its sweet but bitter, refreshing but muted. Great balance overall. Outstanding from the two women that put this Two Women together.
