Nice light lager had some good flavors. I liked the light malt and the carbonation was very nice. Perfect afternoon working in the yard beer. Very clean and fresh.

Light copper color. Nice frothy white head. Very clean malty nose with notes of mineral and bread. Very nice clean malty mouth with bread and caramel. Light body, light to moderate amounts if bitterness. Very well executed. Nice bready hoppy finish. Beautifully crafted.

On tap at the Dig Bar American craft event. My hat’s off to you Catfish! A great looking ruddy amber pour with a malty caramel aroma. Med-full bodied with a slightly rough mouthfeel. The taste is caramel malts, cinnamon & biscuit. Pretty good, I just wish the mouthfeel was smoother/softer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shaker pint draft at Naked City in Seattle. Pour is clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of toasty caramel maltiness. Taste is malty semi sweetness, some nice grassiness in the back. The grainy toast from the nose gives this a nice additional element. Smooth thin medium palate coats the mouth a bit but finishes really clean. Crazy drinkable. Super fresh and clean, nice.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bronze with thin layered head. Vienna malt wafts off the glass amid a haze of dusk and hints of honey. Dry nutty, tannic graininess characterizes the body. Un-sweetened honeyed grain works its way into the profile. Dry bitter, grainy finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
As part of a sampler tray during my visit to Bellingham. Golden clear witha huge fluffy sandy colored head. Light bready aroma and a slightly sweet grain flavor. the hops come through a bit more than I expected and the full maltiness is not quite what I was expecting. Nice and tasty, attenuated nicely and lingering slightly woody tang at the end. Maybe a bit hoppy and bitter for the style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2010 Draft at Fiddlers. 2/8/10
The folks at Chuckanut can do no wrong. Glowing orange pour with a modest head, lovely caramel flavors -- chestnuts and honey -- with enough bitterness on the close to really finish things up perfectly. Super toasty, like fresh-toasted whole grain bread. I’m no expert on the style, but all I know is that I enjoyed this one immensely, just as I have every other beer from Chuckanut. These guys are turning me to teutonic lagers in a way that even a month in Germany failed to. 7/4/7/4/15=3.8
Revisit 2/25/10. Hopeless Chuckanut fanboy? That’s me. Bump to 3.8 for exceptional sessionability. When else would I order three straight pints of anything?

Draft at chuckanut. medium amber / bronze. Malty sweetness (toffee and some dark fruit), caramel; straightforward and tasty - I haven't had many Vienna lagers, but this is the best I've had.
