5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is a Vienna Lager, in the same vein as Samuel Adams. The colour, is absolutely perfect...the malt forward nose, is full of caramel, and toffee/nutty flavours...the hops you receive on the palate, is JUST enough to let you know it’s a Vienna, and not an I.P.A....The lacing, left in my pint glass, was INCREDIBLE! I did not expect lacing like that to occur. This is an excellent Vienna Lager, and one that is VERY easy to drink. I fell in love with Samuel Adams MANY years ago - as I love this style...Barking Squirrel, is no passing fancy...This beer is VERY GOOD! and here to stay...don’t let the cartoonish, squirrel, on the can/bottle fool you! Kudos, to Hop City!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appears a nice nut brown colour with a good foamy head. Surprisingly flat and very drinkable. Aroma is very hop forward with a decent malt and maple presence. Good smooth semi-sweet lager. Probably go great with dark barbecue meats. Also left behind some good lacing.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour a nice amber with a low white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma has a modest apple sweetness with a good amount of toasted and caramel malt with a nice lagery kick to finish. Flavor has a light apple juice start but moves into a toasted and caramel malt flavor with a nice light nutty ending. Body is very light with some nice fizzy feel. Overall not too bad.

Copper with a large white head. Aroma is lightly toasted malts, lightly sweet. Flavor is light sweet malts, toasty, a bit of earthy hops. Medium bodied. Easy going lager- would go a few rounds with this.
