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.

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

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is rather the typical sweetish American craft brewed lager-- amber-beige and malty. Nothing too complex and nothing offensive, but I prefer a little bit more from a good session beer.
