2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 Bottled August 8 and tasted October 20. Pretty beer, nice head, perfectly clear amber color. Aroma of sweet malt, taste is more of the same with perfectly balanced hopping. Much less hoppy than SABL of course, but this is a very fine example of a Vienna. If you want a beer with some character but don’t like an overdose of hops, this is a great beer for you.
Had it a couple of times on draft .... OK for a Vienna, but light most of the way around.

Pours a clear amber with a thick buff head. Crisp, malty aroma has subtle fruity notes. Flavor is a little more fruity than malty, a bit cider-like, with a whisper of hops. Firm texture is fairly fizzy. Vienna waits for you.

On tap at Ledo. Pours a clear golden yellow color with white that added quickly leaving minimal lacing. Active carbonation. Aroma us lager sweetness, toasted nut bread, and yeast. Flavor is subtle malt, slight fruit sweetness, and bright carbonation. Thin bodied, sweet finish.

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.

From a bottle to a pint. Huge foamy head which fades away...big malt presence... Toasted bread and roasted nuts... Easy drinking thirst quencher!

This is a hometown beer for me. Delicious. Great with ribs or sliced short rib sandwiches.
