3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden color with foamy light-tan head. Has sweet (like honey) and hoppy aroma. Nicely balanced and finishes with a lingering bitterness. By far the hoppiest and most flavorful lager I’ve had.

Pours a light amber color with one finger head. Not much aroma here, a little malt and a little floral. Taste is spicy hops with some lemon. Finish is dry and bitter. Biterness does not make me want to take another sip. Not my idea of a sessionable beer. I would pick it over the macros but probably will not seek this one out again.

[218-20060303] 355mL. Sweet citrus hops and lightly earthy aroma with hints of apple and lychee. Clear, light amber orange body with a small off-white head. Very grassy hops flavour with a bitter aftertaste, subtle apple lychee fruit. Medium body, fairly smooth. Nice hops, great blending.

A bit shy aroma. Great balance between hops and caramel in flavor. Smooth and tasy. Yummy. But is a Vienna?

Sweet fruity aroma. Good mouthfeel. Very bitter taste. Lingering taste. Very smooth going down, enjoyable. Mildly acrid aftertaste.

Tap, at LGA’s NYSB. Pour is golden, though a deep golden. Aroma is citrus and a bit of hop. Taste is a fairly normal lager taste, nothing too special - though a bit more fruit - citrus than expected. Refreshing.

out of a can! Huge off-white head and a clear copper body. Pretty big saaz hop in the nose and flavor. noticeably malty, more than a pilsner but not as rich and sweet as the only other vienna i can think of, GL eliot ness. A really good beer and cheap too. good sessioning. you can’t beat a craft beer in a can, but i think i might like Pikeland pils a little more than this.

My team lost by 33 pts ... ouch. Ah, well at least there’s still beer in the fridge. This poured with a deeper color than I’d expected (because I didn’t read the label), pretty much an amber-golden beer. The whipped-up head sticks to the top of your lip on the first swallow. Wow, there’s a lot of apple in this one, tart light caramel, too. Pretty rich, yet disarmingly drinkable. Well done. (#2750, 3/15/2007)

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Softly sweet, your nose will be begging for more. Unfortunately, once you let it onto your tongue your mouth will be begging for more too! Very american, with a spicy sweet fruitiness. A pure clean taste - you know it’s good for you!

Amber in color, with a nice citrusy and slight sweet honey taste. The afertaste is slightly bitter, just right. The head was white and short lasting. Very little lacing. I enjoyed this beer a lot. Can’t wait to taste their other brews.
