Brown color with a slightly sweet and grainy aroma. Flavor is a bit fruity with cereal and medium colored wheat bread throughout. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Heavy malt flavor. Moderately hoppy, and purfumed with a lime scent. Sweat scented yeat flavors, barnyard, dust, cheese and mold - not attractive aromas really. Smoke flavor throughout. Solvent tinge, sour milk, and skunk. This may be by design, but not entirely enjoyable. medium orange red body with a small fully diminishing off white head. Fair lacing, and clear, flat body Lightly acidic, bitter, and sweet and sour. Finish is average. Not the best from Triumph - off, sour, and interesting, but not very delicious.

Tap at Philly location. Aroma quite fruity with peaches, berries, lemon yogurt. Flavor starts with these fruits and moves to a grapey, malty, toasty, caramel-y feel. Finish is at first a touch astringent, but then becomes quite sweet, too sweet in my opinion. An interesting effort at a Vienna with all the unusual fruity notes, but at the end of the day, the sweetness pulled it down for me. Looks like this was much better a couple years ago.

Pours a rusty orange with light white head. Has a sweet and floral aroma with some hints of apple. Taste is very good for a lager with a creamy body that finishes with a great malt taste. Although I don’t like lagers, this may be my favorite of them.

Poured dark golden with a thin white head. The head was short lasting. Aroma was bready and fruity. A little weak. Solid malty taste. Certainly a descent session beer.

Draft. Pours a copper body with a white head. Stinky grain y apples tones, malty body thin and sweet with a lightly bitter finish. I remember at the time thinking this was a better version of yuengling despite their difference in styles. Okay.

Man, me and Gene do it again back to back. I thought the taste was lacking something. Maybe not sweet enough. A little bland, a normal lager that was a little harsh.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the Princeton Location. Clear deep golden beer, no head, no lace. Nice example of the style: clean full malt flavor and body - lager style; easy on the hops, great carbonation. Well-made, however, this style just doesn’t have enough character for my taste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at New Hope location. No Sir I didn’t really care for this one. Poured a clear orange/amber with a small white head. Aroma is very grainy with some sweetness from amber malts. Thinner body with overly aggressive carbonation. Flavor reminds me of stale bread. Oh well I guess they all can’t be Oatmeal Cookie Stouts.
