The first known recorded beer was brewed roughly three thousand years before the founding of New Paltz. The town may have changed, but this fine lager never will. This beer is brewed for those ready to plunge into a fuller flavor style of craft beer. The crimson color is from caramel malt, which imparts a sweet malt flavor that balances the domestic and imported hops.

Tap at the brewpub. Orange, clear, small off-white head. Slightly sulfured nose, with hints of hops and malt. Flavor is malty with a refreshing dose of hops following. Light on the palate. Drinkable.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 4, 2012
On draught at the brewpub. Arrived a clear deep amber with a thin tan head that faded to a film by the second sip and left light lace. Pleasant aroma of malt and not much else. The flavor is malt along with dried grass. Dries out fairly quickly on the palate with the dryness lingering for about thrity seconds. Kind of an oddball lager.

This Vienna beer red lager seemed gorgeous out of the tap and actually had excellent malt like aromas. The palate and mouthfeel seemed to lack the full blown classic style but it was quite tasty!

Pours a coppery brown. Aroma is rather laid back and hard to detect much of anything going on. Malty and light bodied leads into a strong bitter finish.

Slightly smoky, roasted grain, hints of black pepper, dry throughout, undistinguished but quite drinkable.

The pour reveals a clear pale amber color. Aroma of mild hops and caramel. Decent flavor of mild hops and burnt caramel with a bitter finish. The body is light to medium with a chewy texture and moderate carbonation. A very decent vienna.
