A little yeasty and dry on the back pallet. Maybe a bit too effervescent.

I had this served to me on tap at harpoon Larry's. Dark amber with no head to speak up, minimal lacing. Smell is faint wheat and malts. The taste was slightly floral, with some hoppiness on the tongue, but it didn't hit me with the same bang that Eliot Ness did a while back. The mouthfeel is pretty solid, with medium body and a decent bite on the back of the tongue. Overall, this is a slightly above average Vienna.

The is the ultimate Vienna Lager. The great taste is memorable and this is the one I measure all other Vienna lagers against.

A dark amber beer from the tap.
Has a malt and may be grass smell.
Light carbonation with a great flavor.

Good dark red lager. Low ABV, so really nice on a work night.
