Bottle. Wow, this is dark, even for a Vienna -- almost reddish-brown with a definite chill haze. High head with noticeable lace. Nose is spice, apple, toast, yeast, and a darker, wine-line note. Amazing flavor -- it’s still a lager, but damn it has depth and width and a long, elegant finish. This is lager at its best. Bravo.

Tap. Pour clear amber with a small off-white head and minimal lacing. Aroma belies color; pilsnery dominated by grain and perhaps caramel. Pilsnery in flavor as well, with some caramel/roasted notes and a little bitterness in the body and finish, although I could not detect any hops-related flavor notes to go along with the bitter. Watery in mouthfeel. Its hard to believe that this color was not helped along given the lack of character in the beer (although perhaps the contract brewer screwed up?)

I loved this beer! A tad cloudy with a dark-orange hue to it, this beer looked appetizing! Aromas were fruity and yeasty, hints of pineapple, toffee and carrots with hints of yeast were festive and inviting. The mouth feel was smooth, and with a solid malty body (dried oranges and some hops) it was very drinkable. In the finish were a touch of hops and tangerine but very light, only adding to how drinkable this brew was. Cheers!!!!!

Aroma is caramel sweetness and a hint of tea. The flavor is caramel malts, a good hop punch and a dry, bitter finish. A little different for a Vienna, definitely more hops, pretty good.

Bottle. Pours deep amber with off-white to beige head. Aroma has a pleasant floral/citrus hopiness with a soft malt back bone. Flavor is very much the same. Mouthfeel is medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, is a pleasant lager, in certain ways, reminds me of a Sam Adams Lager.
