From the growler, thanks to Mike Hall. Same name, but definitely not the same beer as the former Upstream Firehouse Red. This has a wonderful toasted almond aroma. The flavor has a mild caramel toffee taste in a very light bodied beer. Nice quick and drying finish. A definite improvement from the previous namesake.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft with a red pour and a white colored head and decent lacing. Aroma of floral hops and bready grains. Flavor of bready grains, some floral and piney hops. Mouthfeel is moderately to heavily carbonated and it finishes quite dry. Rated as a red lager and nothing Vienna like. A nice full flavored but lightly drinking lager. Would put it in my fridge for an every day brew as an alternate to the regular IPA. Nice one.

Ruby red pour and thin beige head. Sweet aroma is mainly toffee and toasted bread. Hazelnut, caramel, sweet grains and dry toffee in the taste. Better than expected mouthfeel, with a rich and creamy palate. Light citrus hop finish. A pretty tasty beer

A lot better than I expected, since I am not typically a fan of Vienna’s. Surprised me, I guess.
