Pours perfectly orange and clear. Tan head of creamy foam. Nose is breaddy with toasty melanoidins and a touch of earthy floral. A hint of sweetness on top. Excellent. Substantial malt with a crisp finish and moderate bitter. Toasty malt but no caramel. Drying int he finish. Clean and smooth. Excellent example of the style and a pleasant surprise.

12/19...pours amber medium with just a smidge of white foam on top. Light caramel nose, vanillas, colas. Smooth taste, clean caramel, light sweetness backed by a toffee bitter bite. Small. Just a little bit of carbonation. Simple, but hits the style nicely.

Not sure why I have to justify this with a review. Had this lager a few years ago and didn't care for it. Didn't care for any beer from Wagner Valley. After visiting the brewery today, I have to say I am a fan. Very good example of the style.
