A solid lager definitely. However, it is really not noteworthy and would not be an order I’d make if it wasn’t included in variety packs.

33cl bottle at home. Rich yellow and a fruity aroma. Malty to taste with a finishing bitterness and some green apple cores. Quite highly carbonated but soft mouthfeel.

2015 BJCP Category: 7A Vienna Lager
AROMA: Fairly intense malt aroma; sweet caramel notes. Some floral/spicy hops. Clean lager character. 10/12
APPEARANCE: Deep amber/slightly reddish copper. Crystal clarity with CO2 always present. Fairly large, white, frothy persistent head. 3/3
FLAVOR: Soft malt presence, but quite flavorful. Caramel/toffee flavors without becoming cloying. Strong hop presence with floral and spicy notes. Bitter, but restrained. Perfectly balanced. 17/20
MOUTHFEEL: Body is fairly strong for 4.9% ABV. Medium sized, crisp; clean dry aftertaste. 5/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: To-spec in pretty much every way. Not sure why BJCP doesn’t have this listed as a commercial example of the style. 9/10
TOTAL SCORE: 44/50

Ahhh, one of the old favorites that has been pushed to the back due to the craft beer revolution. From a can at Citizen’s Bank Park, home of the Phillies. Poured into a plastic cup. Good strong white head that sticks around forever. Nice aroma of figs and some molasses. Mouthfeel was heavier that I remember, but real solid. Taste is kind of one dimensional. And I was really looking for something as hard as I could. Malt flavor but not much else. and it was slightly sharp and abrasive. Still a good, solid beer that I’m happy to drink.

beautiful carmely medium amber color. The special Sam mug shows off a lot of effervescent energy and feeds the light head which gives way to great lacing on the glass.
NOSE- slight bite of bitterness, but not much in the way of hop.
FLAVOR- smooth. Not overly hoppy (though once when I returned from Hungary and Austria I had a Sam and it tasted like a pale ale. Surprising how subject one’s taste buds are to what you’ve been drinking recently.)
