Pours deeper gold with a medium white head. Aroma is toast and caramel. Taste is sweet with very light bitters that add a touch of crispness. Soft carbonation and a smooth mouth feel make this to easy to drink. Enjoyed.

Sampled at the brewery - Poures a light yellow in color with a medium bright white head. Aroma is mostly malt with some faint hoppiness. Flavor was light, but malty. Nice example of this comparatively "rare" beer.

More clear golden than amber, small white head. Aroma clean malt and bit of hay. Medium-light body, small amount of carbonation. Flavor does not seem like much at first but develops some yeasty malt and crisp grassy hop finish. Just off-dry. Nothing particularly memorable but well done, drinkable with food, just right for a session beer.

On tap (flight sampler) at Trapp Family Lodge: Pours slight hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Malty aroma, with a bit of honey. Flavor is more of the same. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this and how well balanced it was. Light carbonation and a smooth finish make this very drinkable. Definitely worth a try.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel malt. Flavor of sweet caramel malt and crackery malt, similar to the helles but sweeter. The best of the bunch offered at Trapp Family Lodge (out of the helles, baltic porter, and dunkel) but that’s not saying much...

I was amazed to find this on tap at a local watering hole, Kilkennys, in Milford NH. Pours a clear straw color with a barely there thin white cap, which disappeared immediately. Aroma was biscuit and cracker with a hint of floral hop. Flavor is white bread with butter & honey. Palate was surprisingly rich & full. Quite drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub in Stowe, VT. Pours a crystal clear golden colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a solid lacing throughout. Aroma is on the lighter side, but there is a very soft maltiness with a touch of sweetness. Bready, a hint of caramel, a touch of lager yeast, and a very light hopping. Flavor is similar. Very soft, bready malts with just a touch of caramel sweetness up front. A light lager yeast note with a touch of fruit in the middle and a bit of grain. A balancing, light herbal grassy bitterness comes on in the finish as this dries nicely before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Very soft, gentle, medium body with a very soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, not a bad Vienna. The flavor isn’t anything special, but it drinks really nicely. Very soft with a great clean, dry finish.

Tap: Poured a light clear amber color lager with a small foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light cereal notes with light caramelized malt notes. Taste is a mix of light medium-sweet caramel malt with some cereal and grainy notes. Body is light with good carbonation. Nothing earth shattering here but well balanced and easily drinkable.
