EithCubes (5269) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2014
This bottle BONED 05.29.14. Nose toasty with grain that’s starting to turn, lightly sweet malt and faint nuts and smoke -- a lot more intensity of aroma than is normal for style. Clear, deep copper-orange with a sudsy beige head. Taste sweet but not cloying, a really nice maltiness with broadly rich flavor, toasted grain and sticky malt with honey and hints of raisin (!) in the bg, slight caramel and nuttiness, a little more yeast/grain in the finish. Hops contribute a but of citrus up the middle but little bitterness. Dries out slightly, fullish body, clean with no alcohol, extremely moreish!

teromous (119) - - AUG 28, 2014
Appearance: It has a nice transparent brown body with orange hues. The head is a creamy white cap that fades to a ring and a center island but leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma: Not much of a nose. I get a light presence of malt but that is all. Taste: It has an extremely mellow taste. It has a slight walnut flavor. There is no real aftertaste. It is very watered down. Palate: The palate is nice and smooth and very light. Overall: It doesn’t have a lot of flavor or aroma so there isn’t much to really say about this beer. It’s not a bad beer it just isn’t elevated enough. I wouldn’t drink it again and I honestly wouldn’t recommend it, but it’s enjoyable enough to finish off the glass without a problem.

Draft. Clear amber color, scant white head. Aroma of caramel and scotch. Taste is very malty with a quick transition to a bitter finish. OK.

Stumbled across this in Virginia on a roadtrip through the Shenandoah Valley, glad I did! On draft, pours a solid amber color with decent lacing. Smells fresh and malty, hint of sweet caramel malt. Taste is caramel malt, some grainy notes, some bitterness for balance. Finishes clean with some cool bitterness, very pleasant. Seems to be comfortably sessionable also. A well done example of the style, recommended!

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was basically a light to hazy red color with a slight hazy orange tints around the edges. The head was there but less than a finger’s worth and it dissipated within about a minute. There was barely any lacing along the sides. The smell had a roasty nutty to caramel maltiness with a light underscore of toffee. The taste followed the aroma pretty much right on spot. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was pretty smooth. There’s a nice sweet malty aftertaste leading to a dry sweet malty finish. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Vienna Lager, uh oh Sam Adams, if this one gets out further than its normal distro, your Boston lager could have a run for its money.
