3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on-tap at the brewery.
A - Pours clear amber brown with a nice one finger tall white head leaving small rings of lace down most of the glass.
S - Smells of mildly toasted grains, caramel sweetness, toffee, light citric fruit and some nice grassy hop bitterness. Pretty consistent nose throughout the course of the glass.
T - Starts off with a good bit of caramel and toffee sweetness slowly giving way to hints of chewy rye bread, bit of fresh fruit, grassy citric hops and a tiny bit of spice. Finish is a little chewy with some lingering sweetness, clinging to the palate long after consumption.
M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Kinda sweet initially growing a little grainy toward the end of the glass but overall a good feel.
O - Not too shabby. I haven’t had too many Vienna Lagers but this one was very nice. I wouldn’t turn down another one in the future.
