Drank this in NOLA draft and it was outstanding. Drank it again in Gulfport with a couple dozen crawdads. Beer is an excellent amber color, pours coppery has a good nose and mouth feel. No backbite, a very good Amber.

Crisp and east to drink. Nice balance between an "all day" beer and a "dinner beer"

Golden copper color with a thin head with short retention.
Nice malty aroma with notes of caramels and a bit of toasted malts.
Balanced flavor with notes of mild coffee, chocolate, caramels, citrus, hints of pecans. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with mild carbonation.
Nice US take on the Style. It is a refreshing Vienna Lager, all the right flavors are there; it would be perfect if they were more intense, though.

Sampled this evening on 9/20/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a tulip glass.

Pours a pretty amber in color with close to a 1-finger foamy white head that settles down to a thin layer on top. Some spotty lacing is seen. The aroma is very nice and consists of caramel malts and yeast, like freshly baked french bread. The taste is pretty much the same with good malts and the bread flavor. Very smooth and tasty. Goes down very easy with no bitter or harsh aftertaste at all. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation. Really liked this one as well as other brews from them.
