Tap at Meridian Pint. Pours a clear lighter amber. Rocky, dense yellowish cream head. Good lace. Nose is sweet cherry and some metallic off character. Taste is bland, soapy, drained and suddy. Palate is mildly medicinal and metallic. Some cidery off flavors as well. Not nearly as good as their 8 point IPA.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2012 Served on draft as part of a sampler at the brewery. Pours a copper color with a small head and moderate head retention and lacing. The aroma is full of toasted malts with some fruity notes. Taste is toasted malts with some fruity notes and nicely balanced bitter hops. Medium bodied. Maybe the best vienna lager I have ever had. Bravo.

I have had this numerous times over the years and I have always been very pleased by it. Rerating it because even the old score (3.8) doesn’t do it justice.

DocLock (7721) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours translucent copper with dark straw bottom edge and a finger of off-white head. Nose is corn flakey vienna malt, mild earthy and hop notes. Tastes of vienna malt, corn flakes, earthy, and with finishing notes of roastiness. Not very complex, this one was a bit of a miss.

Dogbrick (7627) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2013
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.
