EKGoldings (603) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2012
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.

Reddish-orange hue, normal clarity with mostly diminsihing fizzy white head. No lacing. Sweet floral and fruit aromas. Wheat and sweet floral taste up front with a sweet floral finish. Lively carbonation and good mouthfeel. Just an okay brew.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of pale malts, dough, and light bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. Standard for the style.

Apple juice color, not much head. Weak sweet malt nose...a little toasted scent...smells thin. Tastes like a fancy college beer (not a great thing). Buttery mouthfeel, moderate carbonation.

S_Side_Smitty (547) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Pours amber and clear with a thick off white head. Aroma is sweet caramel and faint grains. Taste is light molasses up front transforming to some tasty malts before dropping off at the finish. Very easy to drink.

16oz Draft 1/21/15 (Sheraton Norfolk)-Pours amber with a small head. Aroma of caramel, malt, and sweetness. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and is quite tasty.

Beautiful clear amber copper. No head. Crisp. Kinda sweet at first that rounds out to a dryness. Nice body. Toffee and caramel. Thx Erin.

Bottle. Biscuity, caramel on aroma and pallette. Middle of the road variation on the style. Not bad but not great either. Rather this than Bud.

Pretty good for a Virginia microbrew, with almost none of the overhopped elements and a good balance between caramel sweetness and everything else (the vagueness of the latter is a big reason for the score being relatively low). Nice find at the LH lounge in Dulles
