10 ounce sample on tap at the brewpub a couple months ago. Strangely musty aroma with some DMS hints present. A little metallic with some floral hops and light vegetal. Transparent copper body with a medium, small off-white head. OK lacing. Starts a little sweet and fruity with some vegetal flavors in the middle. I also get some lightly toasted cereal. Floral hop flavors come through in the end. Rather pedestrian.

Sampler @ River City -

Really a nice, easy to drink lager with just enough toasted malt character to notice. Body is amber in color, crystal clear with an off-white fluffy head. Aroma is mostly clean with a hint of roasted malts and bread. Flavor matches the aroma profile blow for blow. Finishes really clean with just a hint of lingering sweetness. Very nice.

Light toffee aroma, color is golden tan... Flavor is cream soda, extremely sweet and poorly balanced... Not a fan

~Pours a clear copper color with lasting creamy white head. ~Sweet malty scent. ~Light malt flavor with slight citrus. ~Light feel, quick finish. ~This is ok. Nothing special about it.

I had this on tap and it’s a fairly good vienna, light and smooth but still fairly flavourful. It’s light brownish amber with a decent off-white head. It has caramel with a llittle yeasty bread dough, faint earthiness, lightly sweet with a little hop flavour and bitterness, making it more interesting than many of the style.

Great Vienna, such a lost style. This beer has balance in flavor, aroma, body and drinkability. This is the best reason for going to the mall that I have ever come across. This beer has the balance of drinkability and body that so many microbrews lack in todays market.

This is a very refreshing beer, probably the best of its style. One of the most flavorful lagers youre likely to find with a very nice toffee finish.
