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.

Tap at the brewery a while back. I’m currently rating every SN brew I’ve ever had in one clean sweep. I grew up on the classic SN Pale having it around during high school, and since have watched SN grow into a national representation of incredible craft beer. Living 45 mins away is a treat for the random growler fill. Keep up the amazing work and thanks!

Yellow orange in color... Aroma is crisp, subtle malts...Flavor is nice and crisp, reminds me of Germany... Not a huge fan of lagers, but it does a nice job accentuating the caramel flavor, and has a nice dry finish... Not bad

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Sample at the brewpub. Clear gold/amber pour with a medium off-white head. Nose is sweet malt, later yeast, a bit of caramel and noble hops. Crisp later flavor with some caramelly sweetness. Dries out a bit in the finish.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear golden color with a medium creamy offwhite head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts and floral hops. The taste is toasted malts, bitter hops with herbal and spicy notes. Medium bodied. Strong carbonation. A bit too hoppy.

On tap at the Session Ale Fest at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Pours a light hue for a Vienna, with a off-white head. Aroma is biscuity and malty with a bit of vegital. Taste is grainy and bready with some grassy hops. Nothing special. Medium fizz.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - AUG 15, 2009
On tap at Pizza Port San Clemente’s Session Ale fest 2009, it’s a clear golden color, which is surprising for a vienna. Not much going on in the flavor.
