This one pours from 12oz bottle a medium gold with a large head of foam that shrinks slowly leaving just a few small "islands and some lacing" by the end of the session. This is one pretty beer to look at, for sure.
The smell is a nice mix of sweet malt tempered by some citrus hops. Delicate but nice.
The taste on first sip has an abundance of sweet malt and grain with a good earthy presence. Further sips in and I get a bit of hoppiness but the malt is king here and..swishing the brew in my mouth, I get a kind of a candy sugar flavour that is very pleasing indeed. Very tasty. The more I sip, the more the graininess and earthyness comes to the forefront and I have to slow down lest the liquid gold in my glass will disappear way too quickly. In other words, this one’s drinkability is really amazing. I’ve had this many times before and I was surprised that I hadn’t reviewed it until now. In my book, this is a top notch Lager that yeah, fits the style to which it was placed very nicely.
Bottom line: A most excellent in all ways example of the style. I can *only* recommend it!

Poured up on tap at the brewpub where there’s a clear copper body that supports an off white head. The mild aroma offers up malts, a sliver of roasted malts and then a biscuit sensation. The taste is malty to biscuit to faint light colored nuttiness before malt sweetness intercedes into the hop notes. To midway the hops take on the form of grassiness. It has a full almost rough feel as the hops and vibrant malts try to meld together but can’t. It ends with smooth malts and a mild biscuit malt note.

A nice little beer. As far as Viennas go this is one of the better ones I’ve had. Light aromas and flavors of caramel, nuts and chocolate. Slight hint of German hops. Light bodied. musinj6 (510) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2014

Now when I look this up and it references this as a Vienna lager it makes sense. Nice slightly caramel aroma, nice malt sweetness and a balanced finish. Good job. ads135 (5010) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Maybe its my inability to appreciate this style, but I find the hay flavors and muddy honey distracting. An overall smooth beer, though. Tried in Sheridan, WY in 2013. ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2013
