Just know that I like it. Appearance: Color is reddish amber and mostly clear. Aroma: Bready malt. There is no bitter bite to this beer. Smooth, "bready" malt with slight hop taste to it. Love this beer.

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.

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.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2014 Appearance: clear coppery amber with one finger of light tan head and medium lacing. Aroma: toasted brown bread, with a hint of hay, honey, and brown sugar. Taste: toasty, with flavors of golden grahams, brown sugar, toast, grass, and a hint of nuts. Finish: clean, crisp, dry, and a little toasty. Notes: Excellent lager, very basic, balanced, well-crafted, and tasty.

Had this beer in Charlottesville, VA at the oldest continuous restaurant in the area, The Virginian. So smooth and good with a great flavor and a beautiful light red color.

Aromas of toast, apple butter, and toffee. Clear, dark gold, with low retaining white head. Toasty, nutty, and dry, with prevalent, tannic, hop bitterness. Light-medium body, decent carbonation, finishes with clean, dry malty tones.

Aubrey (3442) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Rather tasty Vienna. Very easy to drink, too. Fresh notes of bread, toast, nuts, and a subtle, honey-like sweetness. Balanced hops offer notes of meadows and herbs. Delicate and really pleasant.

Bottle. Aromas of biscuit, caramel, and toasted malt. Clear amber with no head. Full bodied, medium sweetness with lots of malt character. Nicely balanced and to style. Light spiciness.

I liked this. Had off tap in VA. Tasted like a good american beer. Bready aroma and taste. Clean finish.
