Where in the world is Garret Oliver? Pours a crystal clear burnt orange color with a lighter red hue throughout. A good soft white head that does hide to the edge of the glass for some time before fading completely. Not much lacing though.

The nose is more on par with a macro-European O-fest. Noticeable Vienna and Pils notes. Would like more of a malt backing and with some Munich notes. Malt comes out somewhat but rather soft for style. Mostly clean yeast aromas but some acetaldehyde on the back side. Not bad but I do pick it up.

The taste is below par as well. The malt is light with more of a Vienna flavor with a hint of Pils and Munich. Really lacks the depth and maltiness that I expect for style. There is a chalky like flavor as well in the finish that I usually associate with gypsum. Some light mineral notes as well. Some minor yeasty notes, but nothing over the top.

The body is really lacking for style. More on par of the macro-Ero style where it's a bit wispy and really lacking the Munich notes. Overall, I'm a bit disappointed.
