This Vienna lager pours an amber color with clear clarity and a compact head of tight white bubbles that persist during the entire beer. In the aroma, a diacetyl note is prominent in the nose and blends with the malt-rich aromatics of Vienna malt creating a noticeable butterscotch and caramel aroma. No hop aroma is noticeable. The malt flavor is moderate-low with a toasty character. The diacetyl blends with the malt notes giving a buttered toast flavor mid-swallow. Moderate-low hop bitterness keeps the beer balanced but with no noticeable hop flavor. The finish is crisp and dry despite, however after the swallow a slickness is left on the tongue and back of the throat from the diacetyl. A medium-light body and an intermittent carbonation give the beer a smooth and creamy feel in the mouth. Overall, this particular batch suffered from an issue with diacetyl off-flavors, which unfortunately overshadowed the qualities of the beer. Those qualities that were distinguishable were on the mark for the style, but overall this beer succumbed to the problematic technical issue.
