A: The beer is crystal clear amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down, leaving a short head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted malts and earthy yeast are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, but has stronger flavors of toasted malts along with notes of earthy yeast.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and is a good representation of the style, especially with its malty flavors.

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.

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.

Pour is dark hazed copper with a good bit of tight light tan head and a thick lacing. Nose is heavy caramel and grainy malt. A bit doughy, faint herbal hops. Taste is sweeter, more caramel, a bit less grainy. Chewy stale malts, herbal hops, moderate bitterness.

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a clear orange-amber color with a small head of off-white color. The head fades very fast, leaving only a trace of lace on the sides of the glass and a persistent foam on the surface of the brew.

Smell – The aroma of surprisingly strong with a big toasted bready smell mixed with a moderately strong caramel sweetness. Along with these aromas are some lighter hints of some lighter fruits as well as a bit of grass and grapefruit hop.

Taste – The taste begins with the sweet caramel and the toasted bready taste that were detected in the nose. These two flavors create a base for the beer lasting throughout the entire taste. Some lighter fruit flavors of apple develop more toward the middle of the taste. This apple is very light, but is accompanied by a moderate grainy taste. Some grass and grapefruit hop flavors later come to the tongue at the end, combining with the rest to produce a lightly hopped, sweeter bready taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner to average side with a carbonation level that is rather average. Overall the feel was pretty good as it matched well the sweeter caramel and fruit flavors of the brew in its more light feel, all while not being too thin or highly carbonation to support bready and hopped flavors of the brew.

Overall – A rather refreshing and quite flavorful lager. Very drinkable.
