First off, I hope all the people who love Sierra Nevada Vienna Lager look favorably upon this one. It's much better in my opinion.

Pours a beautiful crystal clear amber. Nice head, fades to a ring. Spotty visible carbonation adds to the appeal. The smell could easily lead me to believe I was drinking a German Marzen. Bready with a touch of caramel sweetness. The flavor is much the same, although the sweetness ramps up a touch more than the aroma would indicate. Again, flavors are wonderful. Feel falls a little flat, but it's clean and refreshing. I may not even be rating this beer well enough. Quite a pleasant surprise.

02/14/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Abita is all over town this week for Fat Tues./Mardi Gras. I find this on the cloying side. Leaves both an aftertaste & 'residue' on the tongue that wears out it's welcome. I guess my expectations of a beer are based on the definition of a good guest; nothing should be left but pleasant memories. This one needs a chaser. No need to "release the hounds" but a cool glass of water would be in order.
