Poured a nice amber/copper with a half-finger white head. It looks like a good Oktoberfest, or even a Vienna Lager, as the brewery was calling it. Scents of lager yeast, fresh bread and fruity esters. An excellent, appetizing German-style aroma. Very nice. Flavor began with nice sweet malt, balanced by nice amounts of floral and grassy hops, there is also some grain husk and a nice bready and dry finish. A very good Vienna Lager, it's got a lot more flavor and character than the style usually has going for it. Mouthfeel was light bodied with low carbonation and a nice drying quality. Quite pleasant on the tongue. Overall this was an excellent Vienna Lager, that had a lot going for it in all categories. As far as Four Peaks' Fall beers go, I'd say this is well and away better than the Pumpkin Porter.

They just brewed this beer for the first time and released it this past weekend.

A- Deep copper color, crystal clear

S- really wasnt getting much from the smell of it, but anyways

T- Taste was very full-bodied. It had a nice subtle hop flavor that went really well with the dryness. A little bit richer malts for a vienna lager than I am used to, and I liked it

M- The dry mouthfeel really turned this into a great sessionable beer. I feel like the rich complexity came through in the taste and then the dry, smooth feel made it go down so easily

O- Great Oktoberfest, especially for their first time. I'm looking forward to more of these, since I live down the street from the brewery in Tempe
