3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into Sam Adams Sensory Glass.
Color is a golden bronze. The beer looks dark, but you can see right through it. Pours a light tan head that leaves great lacing.
Smell is very malty. Roasted malts with hints of carmel. Taste is of roasted nuts and the same hint of carmel. The taste is mainly malty, but there are some slight earthy hops present.
Mouthfeel is very rich and creamy. The beer goes down with a slight bitter aftertaste.
Overall this beer is easy to drink and could be a wonderful session beer. It is a great beer, however the taste becomes more and more of a typical lager after a while, and I am more of a fan of ales.

I’m a sucker for Vienna Lagers and session beers in general. Immensely drinkable I could drink these all night long. Nice lighter toasted malt, caramel, nice dryness on the back makes you want to drink more. This beer would go great with spicy food. I can see why this beer has won awards for the style.

Pours a nice clear amber color with off-white head. Caramel malts, roasted malts, and a little citrus sneaks in on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes clean.

This is a pretty decent version of an under-appreciated style. Mild and watery, but with a nice breadiness. Tried at the brewery with Vaughn and Amanda.
