Sampled on draught at the New Hope, PA location. Pours to a beautiful, bright, light amber color, with a nice white head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose is balanced, with some nice herbal/grassy hop aroma, paired with aromas of light toast, and nuts. Palate is firm and round on the tongue, with good toasty and dry malt flavor. This beer finishes celan, with some more good toasty malt flavor, then ends with the proper amount of herbal hop bitterness to balance. Well done example of Vienna lager, a style you don’t see too many breweries in the US do. Stylistically an accurate version, with good toast and dry malt character, and less sweet and nutty malt character that you find in a dunkle or marzen. illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 28, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Draft at Princeton. Served a tad too cold for my tastes, but so what? I can wait. Pours orange amber. Faint aroma that is bready, grainy, and herbal. Very nice mouthfeel. Flavor of toasted malt, caramel, and biscuit nicely balanced by spicy hops. Clean lagery, toasty, and mild bitter finish. I am not an expert on the style, but this was a mighty tasty Vienna.

Tap at Princeton. Pours a perfect light amber/orangey copper with a nice sticky off white head and some great lace. Aroma is toasty, vienna malts- light caramelly and a nice earthy spicy hop balance. Fresh bready and toasted malts, light sugary sweetness, faint nuttiness and a nice crisp hop bitterness in the end. Smooth and refreshing. Great example of a hard style to brew. puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Handbottle shared by Paul. Nice pour, golden, decent head. Very very toasty aroma, a touch of wheat and veggies, nutty. Lots more toastiness in the flavor, sweet and veggies and great German malts. A very solid Vienna, dead on style. Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2004
I do not enjoy lagers normally, but this one is an exception. Grainy aroma, golden pour. Light malts and tastes of doughy goodness abound.

Light brownish gold color with aromas of toast and light caramel. The flavor has a nice vanilla and green hoppiness. Nice crispness and mellow, tasty roastiness. Good shit. PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Hand bottled by Dickinsonbeer. Pours a deep copper with an off white film of head. Nice lightly spicy Vienna malt nose with notes of fresh bread crust and a touch of underlying anise? Creamy body, with a firm clean malt flavor. Crackery Vienna malt presence with a touch of bread character. It stays nice and dry throughout with a smooth and dry finish as well. This is an awesome German-style session. Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2005
6.21.05 at Princeton brewpub. I missed this every other time it’s been offered, and happened on it by accident this time around. Nice. A quality vienna, a quality lager. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2007
on tap-pours a white head and amber color. Aroma is faint sweet grain. Taste is sweet grain/light malt-sweet, faint hops. Smooth, mild, nice. OK carbonation. LilBeerDoctor (3930) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2009
On tap at the brewpub in Philadelphia. Pours a clear light brown with a thick light tan head. Aroma is quite fruity with raspberry, strawberry and light malts. Flavor is rather astringent. There is a general sweetness, apple and melon notes, but the flavors are muffled. Sweet for a vienna. Pretty decent but on the sweet/astringent side.
