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.

Vienna lager. "Vienna" is bit churched up though, like Joe Dirt trying to go by Joseph Dirtë. The Viennese, or Wieners, call it Wien, and this style is therefore called a Wienerlager, or maybe just "weenie" for short. For a weenie, this is in the upper ech’. The color is a clear deep penny copper, and there is a layer of whitish foam. The aroma is of caramel apple, nuts, and mild roast. The flavor is at the right sweetness level, and the bitterness is mild but there. Medium-bodied and slick on the palate. This one is a wiener - I mean a winner - but a wiener too.

Bottle... Clear golden pour with copper glimmers and a tiny, fleeting, white head. I can’t pull anything from the aroma other than a malty, toasty note. Medium-bodied and thin with lively carbonation. The flavor is excellently balanced, but it’s also the dictionary definition of “mundane.” Crisp, clean, watery finish. Goes well with Mexican food.

12 ounce bottle poured into a teku. Pours a clear copper with a beige head of foam. Not much retention. The aroma is lightly bready and grassy. The taste is crisp grassy notes with a touch of spice and a caramely sweetness . Medium body and higher carbonation.

12 oz bottle. (Martin's) Winchester, VA. Clear amber colour with a mid-size off-white head. Malty, caramel sweet and papery dry aroma. The flavour is sweet caramel malt, dry graininess and some papery notes. A bit unbalanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Carmel and malty. Tastes more like a mare than a lager. Aroma has a lager style. Amber color. Very good and would do again.
