2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pours a thin ½” sudsy head that recedes quickly. Light lacing. Color is reddish amber and mostly clear. Significant carbonation bubbles streaming.
Aroma: Bready malt dominates with a bit of hop aroma as well as yeast. The bread aroma smells like fresh whole wheat.
Mouthfeel: Mostly watery and crisp with a dry finish.
Flavor: Liquid bread is the correct description of this beer. The bready malt is the primary flavor but adds some caramel malt sweetness and a nice hop bite for balance. There is a ’burnt toast’ bitterness that seems to be common in Vienna style lagers that I have tried.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft sitting at IAD airport. This is going to be a long day. I had heard good things about this brewery, but they only had this lager on tap. It’s not bad, but it’s not good either. Dark amber, clear - some head that went away completely after a few minutes. Drinkable, but not interesting in any way. Se buscuit in the finish. Very mild.

Draft at Conch and Bucket. Overall a fairly standard Vienna and average new overall. Nothing bad, just not terribly exciting but this category can get a little bland in general.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Average brew, but pretty good for a local brewery. I would say that it would pass for a standard vienna lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This brew pours a clear copper color with a thin and fizzy white head that evaporates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, hay and honey. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, molasses and nuts. The finish is sweet with a roasted malt and grass aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A rusty orange body with a spotty, somewhat soapy head. The aroma was a mild malt and the flavor was more of the same. It actually reminded me a little of Yuengling’s standard lager, but without quite as much character. Not awful, not amazing.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from draft at Texas Roadhouse in York County. Nice amber color with white head which left a nice lace all the way down the glass.. Strong hop aroma. Crisp, hoppy flavor with a good finish. Will happily order again.

Tap at Annapolis 5K Beer Run. Pours dark copper/amber with thin, off-white head. Aroma is caramel and cookie malts, raisins, dates, sweetbread, and some floral hops. Flavor is sweet malts forward with supporting dark fruit esters, light floral hops, and light toffee; dry, lightly sweet finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed on tap at the Camel in Richmond, VA prior to playing a fest show with my band. Appearance is a dark slightly cloudy amber with a thin white rim around the glass. Aroma is not too apparent, nothing much from a smell perspective. Taste goes down nice, cold and smooth, nothing jumps out about this one and its just decent. Happy to have tried this though.
