COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Vienna style lager is from the same vein as Negra Modelo. It has a rich dark color and a deep smooth flavor that combine for a beer with sophisticated character. At 5.4% alcohol by volume this is an easy drinking lager. About the name: Cow Creek is a tributary of Lake Travis (Burnet County). Cow Creek rises eight miles southeast of Burnet in southeast central Burnet County (at 30’40’ N, 98’09’ W) and runs southeast for twenty-one miles to its mouth on Lake Travis, a mile above Lago Vista in Travis County (at 30’29’ N, 98’01’ W). The creek, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses generally flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments and steep slopes and benches. Local soils of shallow clay and sandy loams support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.

Bottle from the post office in Luckenbach. I usually get a Pearl out there, but you know. Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is roasted and old grain. Taste is old grain, lactose, and weird hops. Weird finish.

This beer was very good it had a hint of a pale ale but was on the lighter side. This is a good winter beer that would be enjoyed sparring ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mall santa .. . so, i don’t like vienna’s, i got this just for the tick and to try more from this brewery, which has made some really solid beers since they opened .. . copper .. solid foam .. . scrawny bag of bones .. . nice and crisp, touches of clean caramel and unadulterated pap .. . a really well done vienna! .. . . Don’t waste too much time wishing, hoping, and being envious; it’ll make you bugnutty.

Tap at Bearded Lady. Pours a fairly clear copper orange color with a light layer of head. Aroma is sweet malt with a light background of hops. Flavor is roasty sweet with malts taking the majority of the flavor. Hop bitterness comes in on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerenberger (1555) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Aroma of lightly roasted malts, with hints of caramel. Pours a clear dark amber with a white ring and minimal lacing. The taste is malt forward and slightly sweet. Malt, caramel, upfront and bread/grain at the end. There is a nice hop bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Overall, enjoyable. Want to compare it side by side with a Negro Modelo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
