COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after the city in which it originated, our Vienna style lager is brewed using a decoction boiling process. Munich, Pilsner and Vienna malts are used, which add depth to its amber color. Subtle hops, crisp, with residual sweetness.

Pours a hazy burnt gold with a white head that quickly dissipates. Nose is slight malt. Body is medium. Taste is Munich malt with some complexity. Aftertaste has a higher hop bitterness lacking in other Viennas. Lighter in color than other Vienna lagers (Sam, Brooklyn, Leinenkugel, Dos Equis) but not in taste and bitterness. Very nice drink. 12 oz bottle in variety pack

Tap. Pours an orange/amber with not much head. Excellent Munich malt flavors are prominent. Mild hops and bitterness. The only fault I could find with this beer was a bit of an odd aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Pours hazy amber into a shaker. White head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sour caramel and candy corn aromas. Medium bodied with dark malt and mild butterscotch front to back. Medium length earthy bitter finish.

rjplumer (838) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 19, 2015
Mild grain malt aroma. A clear golden amber body. Bold malt taste with only a hint of bitterness. Mild earthy sweet spice finish. Has a European lager quality(as best I can describe it) that I rarely taste in American craft brews.

4oz pour at Johnson’s. Pours yellow gold with a persistent white head. Aroma is honey and cracker. Flavor is slow ghtly sweet, with honey, wheat, a touch of lemon and just a hint of saaz hop flavor in the finish. An easy drinking summer lager with no discernible flaws.

If Amber was gold, then this beer might get higher ratings, i.e. color is way off & obviously clashes w/ name of style.... Tastes reminiscent of Yuengling, which is a more true representation. Vermont H2O plays a big role here, Shed beers used to be made in Stowe but are produced in Middlebury VT now

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden orange color with a two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds leaving messy clingy lacing sticking to the glass. The smell started off with crisp sweet nutty malts leading into a slight sweet biscuity edge. The taste was mainly sweet through the combination of the nutty malts and biscuity aspect and also allowing a slight roastiness coming into balance. There’s a nutty aftertaste and a quick sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation feels right and leads to a nice smoothness about it. Overall, this was a pretty good Vienna Lager that I could have again.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Olive-yellow pour with a long lasting white foamy head. The aroma is a little toasty, sulfur, slightly sweet, and thin grassy hops. Light to medium body. The taste has a touch more bitterness than the aroma lets on.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2015 From 12oz bottle, around $8 for 6pack

Aroma: very malty, low floral and spicy hops, slightly sulfur and yeasty

Appearance: crystal clarity, tan white head, Appeared Pale Yellow/Straw when tasting at BJCP group meeting and poured into sampling glass. However, it appears Amber when I opened another bottle and poured into pint glass.

Flavor: Good hop bitterness, clean crisp malt, somewhat nutty finish, grainy malts

Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy

Overall: A soft, smooth and creamy lager. with a clean taste and malty finish. Good, but nothing impressive. Not complex enough.
