This is a Vienna style red, but is actually more of a copper color with a low beige head. Aroma is malty and biscuity, but not hoppy. Mouthfeel is average, moderately carbed. Flavor is medium malt, a little doughey, with bits of caramel and diacetyl. A lingering hop bite can be felt in the back of the throat. This one is average to above average in all respects. Stick with the IPA (if they have it) or the Black Forest.

This one was sampled 2/21 at the Brewhouse. The reddish mahagony beer looked and smelled beautiful. The nose had a slight hint of citrus.
The taste was rich and balanced. Enough malt to not make me wince and enogh hop to say "I'm balanced like a Olga Korbut on a balance-beam".

Mouthfeel was darn nice - much more appetizing than the Black Forest. Drinkability is good with this one.

Appearance- dark ruby read with a creamy 2 fingered head.

Aroma- none. I mean non existant.

Taste: vienna malt shines. A little underbalanced on the hops but malt flavor is there. Good job

Mouthfeel: excellent. Creamy. No astringency.

Drinkability: an excellent beer to beat the new orleans heat!!

Pours a clean copper color, little head. Scent brings toasted and nutty grain, faint kiss of caramel, some earthy, leafy hops. Tastes follows scent, mild but flavorful. Perhaps undone by the body which just misses being crisp, lighter side of medium, lightly coating. Overall, a decent, although light flavored and bodied Vienna.

got on tap at the Brewery with my meal.

Nice amber/copper/rust color with about a half inch head and a fine bit of lacing. Flavor of nice toasted grains, slightly malted with a nice little hop punch at the end. Made for a nicely balanced beer, though a litter lighter than I hadbeen initially expecting.

Clear, light amber, no head/no lace.

Malty aroma with no discernible hop--appropriate for a Vienna/Marzen, which is how this beer is listed (not a Red Ale).

Nice combination of malt and hop; spicy flavor and well-balanced. The aftertaste is mostly malt. Full body for the style.

This is my favorite offering from this tasting at Crescent City. The bartender told me that it was their signature beer. I agree.

Clear reddish copper in color with a 1" head that produced some light lacing through the drink. You can pick up some malt in the aroma. The malt is up front with this beer as any bitterness and fruitiness is far behind. Some faint nuttiness is also detectable.

The mouthfeel is smooth with a relatively clean and quite finish. Medium bodied, very light carbonation level. The flavor is slighlty off balanced to give it a better score in drinkability, and I was getting slightly bored by the end of the drink.

A: Pours a clear dark red color. A white head rises to two fingers with good retention. Some sticky lace is left behind.
S: Buttery malt and diacetyl are up front. Bread and biscuit as well. Light spicy hops linger.
T: Follows the nose. Buttery with some diacetyl. Caramel and biscuit flavors.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. A little watery, but not bad. Easy to drink. I can put a few back with ease.

Decent, but the diacetyl is a little to prevalent. It does not ruin the beer, but it is there. A small grip, and an overall good beer to quaff at the brewpub.

The beer has nice amber appearance with a tan head. Some lacing. The smell is slightly thin. You pick-up a bit of hop/pine and some malt aroma.

Taste is solid but unspectacular. Per style, the malt is slightly in front of the hops, but beer could use a dose more of each. I also picked-up a little cinnamon type taste which was not expected, but was not bad.

Mouthfeel is on the thin side, drink ability is fairly decent as the carbonation seems perfectly calibrated.
