COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the classic European amber lager. It has bright reddish highlights and a pronounced bready malt aroma reminiscent of its Austrian counterparts. The flavor plays slightly toward caramel and toasted lager malt but remains balanced and drinkable with a clean finish perfect for a summer session.

12oz bottle... Pours a polished light orange... nice enough white head... decent lacing. Nose shows pretty much perfect light toasted malt and no real hops to speak of.. Flavor mirrors the palate with a bit of grassy hoppiness on the finish.. Light/medium body with good bubble makes for a very drinkable brew... Soft and still very drinkable... Perhaps too much carbonation. I dig this one.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, bread, some dough, some spicy notes, some nice grassy notes, touch of red fruit. Taste is a mix of grass, spice, yeast, bread, some doughy notes into some toast, slight red fruits, finishing slightly sweet, slightly dry.

Bottle into a glass. Clean, clear copper pour. Thin off-white head.Aroma is a lot of sugar and roasted caramel malt and a bit off putting. Taste is a bit more complex. Definitely some sugary sweetness, but a hint of spicy, bitter hops as well as a solid grainy cereal malt backbone. Bit of a fruity finish. Real easy drinking. Only complaint really is that supper sugary nose. Would like a bit more of the hop character to shine through there.

Very good for style. Sweet but not overbearing. Lacks the metallic component that a lot in this style have. A stronger hop profile is what makes it nice and balanced.

drdisque (530) - Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2014
From a bottle at a party. Carmelly and moderately hoppy. Far hoppier than any Vienna I’ve had. Thin, watery finish. Way off-style. This is a poor example of a Vienna and a quite mediocre beer.

ross (2090) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle. Orange color, white head, hoppy, somewhat malty aroma. Taste is smooth, easy to drink... not really much different than SNPA. Tastes like a watered down version. Kind of disappointing.

crazyvin (1963) - New York, USA - OCT 4, 2014
A medium amber body with a white head that had mild retention. Aroma had a really nice malt presence which consisted of toasted malts, but had nice sweet caramel malts. A slight nutty presence. Flavor was a bit of a let down. Toasted myself were nice but mild and the sweetness from the caramel malts did not much effect. Mostly two dimensional. Smooth finish. Nice beer overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brenn79 (1545) - Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2014
12 oz bottle- Pours mostly clear light amber with a one finger head that reduces with some spotty lace. Aroma is caramel malt, peppery, not much else. The taste is caramel malt, very amberish, kind of boring, thin. I think this is the most boring beer to ever come from SN, never thought they would come out with such a bland mass market beer like this.

Moderate caramel and rich malt aroma. Clear amber with minimal white head. Taste is thin caramel and toffee. Semi-crisp dry finish.

travita (4053) - Frisco, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle. The look is clear, amber in color, and has a beige colored head. The smell is firm hops, malt, caramel, bread, and dough. The taste is bread, caramel, malt, hops, ok.
