33cl brown glass bottle served into a kitchen glass in Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live.

A: Four finger head of fair cream, decent thickness, and good retention. Clear copper colour.

Sm: Caramel, nuts, and light cream. A mild strength aroma.

T: Caramel, nuts, and light cream. In that order, actually. The nuts are a bit too restrained. Not complex, but decently built. I guess it's balanced alright.

Mf: Smooth and wet, but a bit too thick for the flavours.

Dr: Cheap enough, and pretty drinkable, but a bit too close to watery for my tastes. I won't have it again, but serious fans of the style might enjoy it.

Poured fast and furious to create and equally pissed head of three fingers, vienna titled on the bottle, vienna sausage in color. Some sweet malts and raspberry mesquite notes on the nose. The flavor profile matches nose but with less pronunciation. I let warm a tad and unsalted pretzel bread comes into the background but nothing else. The body is barely a light middleweight contender as is the subtle mini-bubble carbonation.

Overall I'm not sure why they didn't blow up this style to a bigger beer. There are good flavors here but really this is one of the most pedestrian "craft" beers ever.

2.6/5  rDev -18.2%

Pours an effervescent amber with 2 fingers of beige head. Minimal head retention & lacing

S: Cereal notes, along with pears

T: Follows the nose, some caramel & dryness up front as well. Some woody hops mix with pears & oaky notes as this warms. Finishes crisp with hints of oakyness & watered down apple juice

MF: Light bodied, firm carbonation, okay balance

Not that great an example of the style, pass on this one, lack any real flavor or depth

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Sure, but when am I gonna finally get my hands on an Innsbruck-style amber lager...? Anyway, this stuff pours a clear copper-amber topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises dried maple syrup, straight barley, light biscuit, and a hint of lemon pepper. Didn't see that last one coming... The taste brings in more of the same, along with some very light sweetgrass and a thick veneer of some strange, vague fruitiness, one with a bit of vinosity buoying about every now and again. It's a kinda odd combination, really, and it has me vacillating between bemusement and very minor disgust. It's hard to explain... The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a sub-standard Vienna lager, one that just comes across as off-the-mark to me.

Tommyknocker Vienna-style Amber Lager pours a reddish-amber, with one-inch of cream colored, frothy head that provides some spotty lacing. Bready malt and some caramel quickly gives way to a graininess and some grassy hop notes. Caramel malt dominates with a slight breadiness under that caramel. A light fruitiness is also detectable in this smooth, mildly bitter brew. Medium in body, this beer is moderate to light in carbonation.

Zum Wohl!
