4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 Draft - 16oz tulip pint - Tippe and Drague in Seattle - $5
Clear amber-gold color with a tight head that sticks around. Glowing beer, looks pretty. Aroma tingles the nostrils slightly with a noble hoppiness and a very clean lager backbone. Its super hard to describe a somewhat melanodin aroma, its not really clean caramel but its not not as well. Flavor has a very dry (for a lager) and slightly bitter finish. Tingly hops spread through my cheeks. The majority of the flavor is just clean with a faint caramel lager flavor. Bottom line, clean flavorful, a bit bitter noble hop character that works well.

Olympia Brewers Festival - Golden in color clear with a thin head. Nice malt flavor and finish. Lagers are hard to make so this is very good rendition.

Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Looks great, nice reddish amber color.   Malty and semi-sweet on the tongue.   Does have a bit of mealiness to it though.   Otherwise smooth, a touch chewy.   Clean, finishes with a touch of biscuit and breadiness.   Bigger than most, but has that touch of mealiness that I don’t care for.   Otherwise pretty good for a local Vienna.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a very cloudy and hazy light golden, decent white head and apparent carbonation. DMS, cooked corn, and esthery fruit presence in the nose, some light notes of sweet pils malt and a little bit of spice. Definite fruity flavor up front, slightly sour, and a little grassy. Finish leaves a lingering yeasty flavor, and body is medium-full. A below-average vienna lager beer that has some definite flaws. Cloudy appearance is disheartening.
