Bottle. Poured clear dark amber color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate toasted malt and small hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable smooth brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked this up at jungle jim’s. Clear amber color w/ slight white rim. Aroma has balanced malt flavor consistent with the style. The malt presence is prominent in the flavor, but is well-balanced with the hops to give it just the right balance. Often I find the vienna/marzen style a bit offputing because the malt flavor overpowers the beer. Not here. I would prefer this over similar hofbrau offerings. This is rivertown’s best beer yet.
