On tap at Brixx in Brier Creek.

Pours a pale amber color with a thin lacing of white head that fades quickly. The nose is very faint; some caramel and toast. The taste is similar; faint caramel, a little sweet, faint toast, faint earthy hops for balance. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, smooth, and just a little too carbonated.

This is very drinkable beer, but it has little flavor. This would be a nice substitute for someone who regularly drinks BMC, but for someone looking for big flavor, they won't find it here.

A- Pours a very clear burnt orange liquid with no carbonation making its way to the surface. The white head is thin and splotchy.

S- Toasted grains, light fruit such as apples and pears, white bread, and a bit of grassiness.

T- Toasted grains, light fruit, some hops, and just the slightest bit of an herbal presence.

M- Just enough carbonation to give it a bit of a bite. Clean on the finish.

O- A tasty pager that gives Sam Adams Boston Lager a run for its money. Simple and effective.

From an undated 22 oz bomber into my Sam Adams glass (thanks, guys!), it goes in a clear honey color with hints of amber, with absolutely great carbonation streams fueling a somewhat anemic white head that fades quickly but is continually refueled, leaving a thin sheet and ring. Nose is surprising sweet, bready, but no “toasted” notes here. Slight butter and caramel. Mild hops, perhaps a bit of citrus. In the mouth, pleasant mild hops, nicely balance malt, a bit of bread and a slightly bitter finish. Smooth, crisp, and slightly viscous. Definitely lends itself to another… and another. Overall: Not terribly remarkable, but a solid lager.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 11/08/2011. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a nice 2 finger dense off white head with great retention that reduces to a thick cap that lingers. Some decent soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of apricot, caramel, toasted malt, bread, and light spiciness. Some decent malty aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of toasted malt, bread, caramel, light fruit, nuttiness, and floral spices. Fairly dry finish; but some lingering notes of bread, toasted grain, light fruit, and herbal spice on the finish for a bit. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming on the finish present. Smooth and easy drinkability. Good balance of flavors. Overall this is a solid and drinkable Vienna Lager offering. Good amount of flavor and balance.
