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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Granite State on tap.
Lightly hazy deep golden color with a minimal head. Earthy bready pilsner with hints of fruit an floral spicy hops. Nice brew that I returned to a couple of times, but to be world glass it needs to clean up some rough edges.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber with a thin white rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is of cereals and grain husks or at least nuts. Taste is of multigrain bread and sweet-ish. Body is medium and carbonation as well. Good!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a slightly hazy orange with off-white head. Smells of amber malt and lager yeast with a bit of grain as well. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant medium-bodied mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

En fut à la brasserie.
Dorée tirant sur le orangé, petite mousse qui colle très bien et qui laisse une belle dentelle.. En olfactif, on sent la levure lager avec de petits accents maltés. Au goût, on est dans l’écorce de grain. Elle est sèche en bouche avec un petit arrière gout de houblon européen. Sa palette se situe surtout dans les grains de céréales. Une bonne lager.
