Had this on 2018-01-02 in Columbia, PA from a 12oz bottle from the lager variety pack

A - Golden-bronze with a 1.5-finger white head that drops to 1/2-finger quickly leaving light lace.

S - Lots of bread, honey and floral. Light earthy spice.

T - Rising sourdough bread, nutty, honey, light apple butter, peppery-spice. Healthy dollop of bitterness on the finish; more than some for the style.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Finishes pretty dry.

O - An enjoyable brew.

Pours a dark bronze - gold color. Clear. Thin off-white head dissipates steadily leaving no residual head other than a ring of white foam along the outside of the beer.

Smell has notes of sweet honey malt, biscuit malt, some floral notes and a hit of spicy hops.

Taste is malt forward with notes of biscuit malts and a honey sweetness to it. Some spicy hops are present but complimentary. Mild lingering spicy bitterness from the hops on the back end.

Feel is a bit fuller but pretty crisp. Medium carbonation. Bit of an alcohol burn on the back end of the beer - beer finishes dry.

Overall this is a really well crafted Vienna lager. I wish this was available closer to me.

Pours a hazy amber/gold with good foamy head and mild lacing. Smells very sweet of malt and biscuit, little honey and minor floral. Tastes very nice, rich malty goodness with a hint of honey sweetness, some floral tones, and a mild dryness on the finish. This was a pleasant beer all around and very smooth, zero bitterness and would rate it a lighter beer.

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden orange color with a two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds leaving messy clingy lacing sticking to the glass. The smell started off with crisp sweet nutty malts leading into a slight sweet biscuity edge. The taste was mainly sweet through the combination of the nutty malts and biscuity aspect and also allowing a slight roastiness coming into balance. There’s a nutty aftertaste and a quick sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation feels right and leads to a nice smoothness about it. Overall, this was a pretty good Vienna Lager that I could have again.
