Had on tap. Clear amber body with a white cap and lacing. Toast, white bread, earthy hop nose, very light. Taste follows the nose, bready and grainy with touches of dry earth, but very short lived, no depth. Feel is light, bready, and finishes not with the tradition hop kiss but with a grainy whimper

Pours a dark, golden color with a small amount of white fluffy head, little retention.

The scent is mostly of toasted grain and some bread.

The taste is also of toasty grains, a little bit of spice, and notes of fruit. \

Light body, crisp and smooth, moderate carbonation.

This was an ok vienna, it had decent flavor and was refreshing, but overall average.

On tap at the Harrisburg location on 1/16/09. Served in an oversized mug.

Pours a clear coppery amber, with a thin covering of white frothy head. Retains with some richness around the edges, with a decent flareup that leaves swathes of foamy behind that slowly slide down the sides of the mug. The aroma is sweet and bready smelling, with fruity accents and some grassy and earthy character this this a fresh pop here on draft.

The taste has a lot of caramel sweetness going on with it, along with some fruity flavors that weaves there way in and out of the flavor profile, and a nice toasted feel to the malts that hangs on the edges of this. A firm tingle of spicy bitterness from the Hallertau keeps this lively in the mouth and contributes a considerable amount of dryness to the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a sharp crispness to the carbonation, yet this stays very smooth and clean across the palate.

Flavorful, crisp, and smooth drinking as heck, this was a very solid take on the Vienna Lager style. This is another one that I would mind one bit being added to the seasonal schedule or at least being brought back as a rotating guest each year.
