APPEARANCE: light brown/copper hue; very clear. Fairly big beige foam. 3/3
Malt-forward palette with slight nutty character. Neither sweet nor
completely dry; though there is a strong authentic cereal graininess on
the finish. Very faint caramel in the background. Hops are low; only
slight spicy sensation. Clean lager character. 15/20
MOUTHFEEL: Light+ body. Crisp and effervescent, no carbonic bite. Smooth and refreshing. Sessionable. 5/5
IMPRESSION: One of the best examples of the style I can recall.
Impressive palette for such low ABV. Too mild to be a true Vienna Lager,
TOTAL SCORE: 40/50
