Pretty enjoyable, I am glad this is on tap everytime I visit Atlanta. This is always a good first beer of the evening at the brewery. Hoppy, somewhat herbal nose and just a hint of sweet caramel as well. Pretty savory on the palate, with some sweet breadiness, but could have just a bit more fruit characters.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at brewpub: Coppery with a small head and good lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, toast, yeast, light noble hop, and herbal vapours. The taste is roasty and vanilla, twangy and acidic midway and a herbal grassy finish. The mouth feel is lively and refreshing, dry finish. An okay session Vienna bier but needs more depth.

From tap at brewpub : A big spicey malty smell. Pours clear dark amber color with good lacing and half finger head. Spices and malt on the taste side. Medium body wtih a very smooth feel. Not much aftertaste. I really liked this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Toasted bready malts provide both crispness and caramel sweetness in this creamy and highly sessionable Vienna. This is the kind of beer which truly showcases this brewer’s prowess.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the clear amber.
-Carbonation is smooth enough to let all those malts express their inner beauty.
-Some fruitiness seeps from the caramel maltiness.
-All flavors’ subtleties are perfectly integrated; this is not one for the high octane lover, but rather a delicious pint of humility.
On tap at the brewpub.

On tap at the restaurant. This one was all about the finish: a burst of dark grain with saltiness at the sides, blending into melony freshness on the top of the tongue, and a little bit of mustiness going on too. A very weird but enjoyable conglomeration of sensations. Nothing else noteworthy in this one (or mabye I needed a bigger sample size).
