Doughy malts with some light citrus and floral notes. Taste us fairly dry and moderately bitter, somewhat medicinal with a bit of aspirin.

Bottle in Portland. Creamy foam on darker, rosy copper body. Fantastic Vienna, rich bitter and copper. Absolutely the Vienna I’ve always hoped would exist.. Takes the style and really elevates it. Dark fruit, astringent delicious malt. I adore this. Bitter, astringent finish.

(Bouteille provenant de chez Bottlecraft): Des malts forts, grillés et amplement sucrés avec un déluge de houblons terreux, boisés et déchiqueteurs. Ça devient rapidement difficile ŕ boire.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: Dark red with a firm creme color head.
N: Pine, roasted malt and toast, earth and loam, coriander, more hopes, touch of grapefruit, touch of minerality. Quite bready.
T: Very bitter, even astringent, with some backing malt.
M: Medium body, alcohol burn, crisp carbonation.
O: Not sure about this one. It’s more like a Double Red than a Vienna. Got away from them a bit - might have to re-review with a different batch.

2.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
22 ounce bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma on this is a very pleasant, sweet, floral aroma with caramel maltiness. The hops really unleash a very nice floral bouquet. So quaffable. Transparent amber-colored body with a medium, light orange head. Good lacing, but the head is a little weak. Starts with a hoppy, bitter, astringent earthy hop explosion. This is super bitter and harsh. There’s very little malt character here to back up the really heavy medicinal hop bitterness. Super dry. A severe disappointment.

22 oz bottle poured. Bottled on 9/14/15. I have an endless amount of respect and I applaud the breweries that can pull out an amber or pale lager and make it delicious. Heater Allen fits this category well. Pours a cloudy copper color with a ton of foam head and lace. Smooth flavor that isn’t too rich. Very nice balance of caramel malt and subtle hops. This beer pairs nicely with baseball.

Bomber. A wiener lager, huh? Heater usually cranks out good stuff. Beautiful appearance, clear deep amber with a lacy white head. Nice aroma, toasty caramel with a citrus and earthy hop punch. The flavor is like Brooklyn Lager on roids, like the Barroids of wieners. Mildly sweet and quite bitter and hot on the finish. Medium body with a good hop bite. Legit as hell. One of the best wieners I’ve ever sucked down!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful amber with a white head. Aroma is more floral hop than I was expecting with light toasted malt. Some bread, and pine. Flavor is heavier on the pine in the floral notes, a bit of lightly caramel malt, toasted malt. A very hop driven Vienna Lager. Highly enjoyable beer but I could use a slightly stronger maltbackbone

Bottle @ home. Clear, rich, amber colored beer with a finger of white foam. Plenty of toffee and toasty aroma. Good bready malt, slight fruits, and floral hops. Sort of leafy. Definitely on the sweet side. Dominated by toffee, toasted bread, and floral hops. A mild bitterness. Nice stuff.
