22oz draught at the brewpub.

Appearance: Deep reddish amber, clear, nice lace.

Aroma: Malty sweet without too much sweetness.

Taste: A decent Vienna lager, with lots of rich malt flavour with just the right amount of rich sweetness, balanced out nicely with a spicy hop bite. Unfortunately, there is some generic nuttiness that also comes through and is not a favourite attribute of mine. Nevertheless, tasty.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, crisp, moreish.

Drinkability: Well worth trying. Nice to have a nice big beer at a modest abv.

Wasn't expecting much from a 1.50 beer at a Casino's house brewpub. But, hey, it's actually pretty well done.

Smelled and tasted a lot more like a regular ol' American red than a Vienna. Big medium, all around. Malts were like biscuits and potting soil, and the hops were more bitter than spicy with some very light nodes of fruit.

This would be a completely unexceptional beer were it not for its price and location, which made it a lifesaver. (Seriously a literal lifesaver; if I don't have good beer, I die).

3.48/5  rDev -1.4%

Consumed on 1/4/10 at Main Street Station, Vegas

A - Slightly cloudy amber-range color. Good lacing. No fiz.

S - Mildly sweet but this damn dessert air makes it too dry to pick out subtle notes. I'm not finding anything interesting here.

T - Sweet malt, syrup, dry and crisp. Hoppy outer tones.

M - Smooth drinkable with a hop bite.

D - Ok, needs a lot more in the aroma department

Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a clear amber color with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Roasted malt and mild hops aroma. Medium, smooth body with sweet toasted malt, caramel and hops flavors. The finish is sweet malt with a lingering caramel aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

Pours a reddish brown/copper color. Small head, no lace.
Very little smell, most of it hops.
Taste is hops and some malt. Balance of the two is good but nothing else on the plate here.
Medium body, medium effervescence, good aftertaste where the malt comes out after the hop start. Nothing to write home about.

Consumed 05/09/08 at the brewery.

Clear brass/copper beer. Thin skin of white foam for a head.

Couldn't detect any aroma.

On the palate: slight citric sourness up front. Texture is a little oily. The house flavor for malt at 777 seems to be caramel, as it was present in most of the beers (including this one). I didn't pick up any hop flavors.

Not particularly tasty.

A nice beer, even for the non-beer lovers in our group who visited the brewery. Opens with a deep amber color with some golden and brown ribbons mixed in. Nice head formaiton, retention and lacing, with a egg-shell foamstand. Aromas are nearly all malt, showing rich bread flavors, caramel, toffee, nuts, and toastiness. A slight hint of citrus hops struggle for attention. Flavors are very similar with emphasis on malt sweetness, mirroring the caramel and toffee. Hop flavors are slight and do little to balance the sweetness. The body is light, which helps the sweetness, allowing the hops to settle in the end. Perhaps the only beer that Triple 7 offers that wasn't balanced to my preferences.

3.65/5  rDev +3.4%

Poured a light red/pink color. Small white head with good lacing. Minimal carbonation seen rising.

Aroma is quite light, with some light hops and malts.

Taste is dominated by hops with a light malt backbone.

Mouthfeel is smooth, medium bodied and cleansing. Quite nice in the mouth.

Overall, a very drinkable brew. Good session beer.

3.23/5  rDev -8.5%

Appearance: Golden red color with a thin tan head.

Smell: Strong, sweet, malty aroma dancing in the nostrils.

Taste: Rich, thick malt backbone to this beer. It is fruity with candy-like sugar sweetness and a sweet, dry ending.

Mouthfeel: Clean, medium bodied and a bit sticky.

Drinkability: This is a good beer but it lacks any distinct character or bite. A good grain bill gives it a great maltiness, but otherwise its nothing special.

Copper in color, a thin 1/2 " head, light lacing. As with the Bohemina Pils and Gold, the aroma is tough to pull out as some malt is the only item I can pick up. The flavor had decent malt and bitterness levels along with a mild nuttiness.

Mouthfeel was between smooth and crisp, and had a relatively clean finish. This was nicely drinkable, as this was on the lighter side of a medium bodied brew and had a good overall flavor.

3.73/5  rDev +5.7%

Presentation: Sampled at the Main Street Casino, Brewery and Hotel during a recent Sunday Afternoon visit to Las Vegas. Dispensed from one of the 4 Taps at the Main Bar that overlooks the Slot Machines Floor and served in a straight sided Pint Glass. Cost less than $2 for a Pint.

Appearance: The amber red colored body is easily visible as this Lager is poured. The head was lively when poured but it soon settled quickly to a thin off-white covering. It either looked over-lively or a little under-conditioned at times.

Nose: Definitely fresh, and the malts come through, but the nose is a little reticent to appear at times.

Taste: The initial kick to the beer is of hops, and it stays through to the middle of the beer when lightly toasted malts take the relay baton and begin to balance the hops. The finish has a lovely crisp malt finish. Short ending that does not last too long.

Mouthfeel: The high carbonation I encountered in the first mouthful was prickly and over-stayed its welcome. Once the Red settled it was then fine and the carbonation aided the crisp feel in the mouth. Malts at the back end are welcome but are all too short lived.

Drinkability: It’s a clean tasting beer with a lovely “hops first - malt later” bias that I enjoy. Crisp, slick lines that sometimes are upended by the wavering carbonation levels – but that’s a minor beef really. The alcohol level of 4.5% is just right, and will also help those at the Slots keep a level head no doubt.

Overall: I enjoyed the Red, much more than the Gold, but not as much as the Pale Ale or Porter. The taste profile of hops then malts and the reasonably clean drinking make this an above average offering well worth trying.

This lager pours a nice amber color with white foam that settles to leave a thin white head. The smell is clean and sparkling with modest malt. The taste is hoppy with some malt sweetness to balance. The mouthfeel has lively carbonation, and is initially dominated by hops, but malt dominates the finish. The drinkability is good. This is a good beer for its style.
