Love the brewer.

12 oz. can poured into craft tulip.

A Dark copper, clear. Head lasts a bit, one finger, off white. Not enough lacing.

S Malt is dominant - toasty, rich. More spicy than sweet. Interesting. What Sam Adams is supposed to be.

T Malt is there again, with a nice toast flavor. With jammy mid-tones, that for me, are too sweet. The hop flavor comes out a little more.The flavor is a marmalade rich, but finishes clean.

M It's medium-light, mid stream just a bit too sweet, finish is adequately dry

O- Very solid. But it's a style that I only seek occasionally, being too much toast and jam.

Like it better than Brooklyn or Sam Adams. As well as a Lakefront.

12 oz. can poured into craft tumbler

A- Dark copper, clear. Head is one finger and just off white. Specks of lacing.

S- Malt is toasty and rich. Just a slight sweetness. Just a hint of a spicy hop aroma.

T- Malt is there again, with a nice toast flavor. The hop flavor comes out a little more to balance. The flavor is a little rich, but still finishes clean.

M- A little rich and toasty. The body is medium-light. The finish is semi-dry.

O- Very solid. Nice toast and rich malt character. But still light and clean.

Sampling a cellar temp can poured into a mug.
The beer pours a clear copper color with fluffy eggshell white head foaming up about 2 cm with a gentle pour. The beer has a grainy and sweet nose with no hints of hops anywhere. Mostly caramel and cereal notes, fairly mild overall.
First sip reveals a very clean and crisp textured beer with very fine tingly carbonation. Flavor is sweet caramel and some husky grain. I do get a little spicy hops on the finish that linger with some bitterness. Actually dries my palate out pretty well on each sip. The beer goes down very easy and is simple and decent. No flaws anywhere but not overly complex or bold anywhere either.

12oz can. Pours dark amber with a small off white head. Aroma and taste is mild toasted grains, grass, hay, some yeast and mild fruity notes. Palate is a medium mildly crisp body, moderate carbonation. Finish same as taste with some lingering yeast and toasted grains. Overall a ok drinking brew.

For winning a medal I was expecting more. A little spicy not your typical lager in a good and bad way.

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.
