12 oz. bottle labelled as Josephs Brau Vienna Lager. Pours a clear gold with a thin-moderate white head. The aroma is strong on lager yeast with a few notes of caramel and hay. The flavor is again dominated by lager yeast, although not quite as strongly as the aroma, with a bit of caramel sweetness. Mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.

Some beers have me at hello. Like Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. I hate to drink it because it’s then not there to smell, and that’s where this brew grabbed me, by the nose. Maybe I’m not used to the style, but what 90 does with hops, this does with malt. Toasty sweet grassy grainy malt. As for the rest of the experience, nothing to fault. A bit sweet and sticky, but balanced well enough. Great for the price, like all TJ beer, probably not the pinnacle of its’ style, but plenty good.

Aroma: Heavy yeast aromas with hints of caramel. Appearance: Dark, clear amber with no head. Taste: Light sweetness with medium sourness in finish. Palate: Medium body, average carbonation, slick texture, long finish. Overall: Much too yeasty. It balances in the finish, but barely.

Hmmm...well, this isn’t terrible, but it’s also not good. Very malty and slightly sweet with only a hint of hops. Hey, at least I can say I tried it.
