look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured into a Yuengling Bock glass, Eliot Ness is mahogany with a small off-white head leaving light lace.

Smell is bready, a bit grainy, and a light touch of citric hops.

Taste is also fairly hoppy for a vienna larger, a touch phenolic, some metallic notes, over a bready backbone. Better then that may sound, a larger of character.

Mouthfeel on the dry side, yet slick hop oils. Full but soft carbonation, medium bodied.

Drinkability is solid, a flavorful, stronger yet smooth, Americanized amber larger. I had this a lot when these guys started and I still lived in Pittsburgh. Back in town visiting family, I'm surprised to see I never reviewed them. Even better then I remembered!
