As part of a sampler tray during my visit to Bellingham. Golden clear witha huge fluffy sandy colored head. Light bready aroma and a slightly sweet grain flavor. the hops come through a bit more than I expected and the full maltiness is not quite what I was expecting. Nice and tasty, attenuated nicely and lingering slightly woody tang at the end. Maybe a bit hoppy and bitter for the style.
Deep amber, fast fading head. Medium bodied, light earthy malt profile. Not much here luttonm (6982) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2018 Chuckanut, Bellingham. Tall cream, light aroma. Pale dark gold, clear. Darker, bready caramel. Pale bitter. Banana and rye bread. Tasty.
Re-rate 1/18: notes are the same but this deserves a bump Capa (3633) - DC, Washington DC, USA - DEC 23, 2016
A deeper golden with a nice head. Slightly chewy body. Full of toasted and slightly fruity with a good light spicy hop bite. Clean and crisp throughout. I could live on this. bvc (1244) - Washington, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Draft...many times, not sure why I haven’t rated it. I guess this is the case for most beers that I drink on the Reg. Why is that? Who knows...maybe had something to do with why I’ve never rated a beer a 5. Honestly, a Chuckanut beer should be one of my highest rated beers since I love to crush these fine, well crafted lagers that I’m lucky enough to live close to that I get them fresh. Clean clear light straw golden with proper head showing. Grassy, slightly corny sweet notes melded together with light biscuit malt. Clean light body with prickly carbonation and just enough body throughout. Lightly hits the grassy Nobel hops, the toasted malt and slight corn sweetness all the way through. mcberko (19883) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2015
On tap at Chuckanut, pours a war golden bronze with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out toasted nuts, bready malt, and a touch of overripe fruits. Flavour is along the same lines, with dry bready caramel malts, a touch of banana and some overripe fruits. Very malt-forward. Solidly made for the style.

Nice crystal clear copper color. Noble hops in such a refined and nicely balanced. Very mouthful of malt that lingers for minutes. Like most of their clean, filtered lagers.

On tap at the Dig Bar American craft event. My hat’s off to you Catfish! A great looking ruddy amber pour with a malty caramel aroma. Med-full bodied with a slightly rough mouthfeel. The taste is caramel malts, cinnamon & biscuit. Pretty good, I just wish the mouthfeel was smoother/softer.

Draft - Sweet grains on the nose. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Tastes of grains and a out of balanced sweetness for my taste. Clean finish. Not my style. Prufrockstar (2259) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Draft at chuckanut. medium amber / bronze. Malty sweetness (toffee and some dark fruit), caramel; straightforward and tasty - I haven't had many Vienna lagers, but this is the best I've had.
