The aroma is smoky. The palate is smoky. This beer is way too smoky and hoppy to be a Vienna lager as it is billed. An odd beer.

I tried this hometown beer poured from the bottle, and was quite pleased. The beer had a malty, caramel aroma and came out a rich, but light, amber color. It had a mixture of flavors with a medium body and carbonation. Overall, I got more than I expected out of this beer.

12 oz bottle thanks to my Secret Santa. Soft brown hazy pour with amber leanings. Wispy head. Lightly sweet malt aroma that is a bit nutty. Lightly malty taste with hints of nuttiness and a mild sharpness at that finish. Fair. Body is medium.

Bottled. Nothing wrong with this lager. Was looking for something more. Tasted like any other amber.

Not a bad vienna, though my hometown Penn Pilsner has this beat. Aroma was very weak which is disappointing as it would have scored higher. Pour was a nice medium amber with no head. Taste was a little thick...but had heavy roasted and caramel malt flavor. Nice carbonation and a a thin film seems to go down the throat with the swallow. Odd. Decent beer.

While it is a good quality beer, there is entirely too much smoke. The hops are completly overpowered by the smoky malt. A little too over the top. While Blue Ridge has been doing well, this beer is unfortunatly an exception for me.

Clear copper body topped by small, quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, butterscotch. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, toffee, light earthy bitter finish. Light-medium, slightly sticky body.

Bottle. Sweetish caramel and toast malt fragrance. Amber pour with a rocky eggshell head. Crisp caramel and toast taste in a biscuity malty body with a little funky kick. Medium body with an only slightly dry caramelly aftertaste. Smooths out. Pleasant and quaffable.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In the bottle. Rich amber color, possibly a little light for a marzen. Reasonable white head with decent lacing. Not much aroma. Flavor is sweet and malty with a slightly burnt caramel taste. Not a great beer, but drinkable.
