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.
