A big thanks to woodychandler for yet another canned beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is, well, faint. Several large whiffs resulted in just a few faint malts. Taste is malts, some sweetness, bready, a touch of hops. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer but nothing special.

I wasn't to sure on the style. I'm just going by the color amber with golden highlights and that it's a lager hence the style American Amber/ Red Lager. Also I'm not sure if this is a year round yet or not but it is brewed for the Churchville Inn and recently started on tap at the brewery.
No B.S. probably the best all around looking lager I've head. Amazing head retention, two fingered eggshelled colored heading. Amber in color with golden highlights. Amazing lacing that leaves ringlets throughout the tasting.
Nothing too big with the nose. Toasted malt, sweet caramel and a touch of medicinal hops.
Though not that much different the nose everything just seems to come full force. Caramel malt backbone with an awesome toasty flavor. Slight sting on the palate in the finish of medicinal hops.
Balanced almost perfect maybe a little on the chewy side. Medium to Full bodied. Excellent carbonation.
Overall I am very impressed. Extremely tasty. I recently had Brooklyn Lager which is rated very high for this style and I most say Churchville Lager is every bit better in all aspects. It has the looks, the taste , the body and just that overall enjoyiness. A must try. This could possibly be NCBC's best beer to date !

I am CANtinuing down the road this afternoon, CANducting The CANQuest ™ in the manner in which it was intended. In fact, this CAN and the next one were some of the first CANs released to the public at the brewery during the second Saturday of Philly Beer Week 2014! I made a day trip up to Croydon and hung out with some bikers that afternoon. Bro. Woody is of the life, just not in the life.
From the CAN: "2013 GABF Gold Medal Vienna Style Lager"; "Vienna Style Amber Lager".
Jeremy Myers was the first microbrewer putting his beers in CANs to explain to me why brimful is the rule - it cuts down on the possibility of any oxygenated headspace before the lid is seamed on! Of course, this one was brimful when I Crack!ed it open. An inverted Glug netted me not quite two fingers of dense, tawny head that slowly fell, leaving sticky lacing in its wake. Color was a solid ... Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9) with NE-quality clarity! Yay, truth in advertising. Nose was lightly toasty, very malty, but not in a honey-sweet way like I often associate with Lagers. This was more rich in terms of its maltiness. Mouthfeel was medium. Taste was toasty, malty with a slight grassy hoppiness. Finish was semi-dry and just cried out to be CANsumed with some hard pretzels, which I always keep on hand. Perfect! At 4.9%, it was quite sessionable and a great beer for a late-Summer afternoon with baseball going on TV. I could see filling a cooler with it and Trauger Pils.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of grassy, herbal hops and caramel malt. Body is light and smooth. Grassy, herbal hops and caramel malt fill the mouth. Finish is long and dry. Just OK brew.

12 oz can poured into a tulip pint.
Amber with 1 finger of bone white head. Good clarity with moderate carbonation.
Bread, biscuit, brown sugar, and a Lagery yeastiness.
Biscuit and caramel drizzled bread. Lightly toasty with touches of brown sugar. Light earthy hop bitterness on the finish.
Medium bodied, crisp, clean, and refreshing.
An absolutely fantastic Lager!
