3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A clean and crisp well malted golden lager perfectly balanced by a generous but smooth hop profile. Superior session golden lager.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear dark golden body topped by an off-white ring of foam
In long: Nose has a good amount noble leafy hops and some candy. The attack is some crisp candy/caramel/toffee. The leafy hops quickly take over a kick the sweetness away but without providing much bitterness or dryness sensation. This bear is clean, crisp and more clean and crisp. This is far from the rustic unfiltered Viennas that are served in Vienna Country (Czech Republic) but I can really appreciate this beer as a superior dark lager session beer. Best beer I’ve had from this brewpub. Named after a place where people gather up to listen to a grown-up that doesn’t have sex (except for occasional pedophilia) tell them to worship a long-hair jobless dude who transformed water into wine (exact vintage unkown). Then these people call me weird.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap at the brewpub. Clear amber in color with a small off white head. Aroma of light toasted grain, a small amount of floral and caramel. Taste is dry and clean, with touches of toasted malt and a light balancing hop bitterness. Not exciting, but a well craft lager based upon being very clean and crisp.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’ll be the first to rate this one; had it on tap at the Great Lost Bear in Portland, ME. Medium gold colored lager with medium carbonation, mildly hoppy aroma. Taste was somewhat light with a sufficient dose of malt (crystal?) and a well balanced yet subtle hop bitterness, quick and non-descript finish. High ABV is a plus.
