look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that left a path of bubbles in the center, a narrow collar around the edge, and lacing on the surface in between.
S: Moderate aromas of toasted and biscuit malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and is rather malty, with flavors of both toasted and biscuit malts. No bitterness is perceptible, but there are enough underlying hops to mask any apparent sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation with some cleanness.
O: This beer is nice and malty but doesn't feel as heavy on the body compared to other beers in the style. It has unique aromas and flavors of biscuit malts.

I wrote a review and somehow lost it. Good vienna lager with some minor style deviations. Worthy.

Solid easy drinking beer. Color is a little muddled unfortunately, takes away some appeal, smell is rather malty and a little caramel. Lacks a strong nose. Taste is of a solid amber lager, would definitely be able to crush several of these. Feel is a little thin, but that does make it more drinkable. Decent overall beer. Solid lager.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. No freshness date.

A: Light amber with substantial eggshell 1-finger foamy head with good retention and lacing.

S: Lighter caramel with bread crusts and light sulfur/mineral note and floral hops.

T: Bread crusts and light caramel with some Munich graininess. Old school lager for sure. Sulfur note in the finish, slightly flinty but not off-putting. LIghtly spicy, floral hop note in the finish. Low bitterness and clean from yeast standpoint.

M: Very crisp and clean, light-bodied with above-average carbonation. Dry finish but not overdone.

O: Very Solid Vienna lager, not at all sweet caramel, good malt character. Would go for it again.

Poured from the bottle, amberish-copper body with a thick but quickly fading head. Aroma of hops, graham crackers and dark bread. Tastes of caramel and candied dates. Mouthfeel is medium with lingering hop presence.

Overall this is a decent brew at the right price point to be part of my regular rotation.

S: Warm toast and honey. Simple but brilliant.

12-oz. bottle poured strongly into a 16-oz. mug creates a finger sized foamy white head made up of small and larger bubbles that quickly fades to a thin cap with spotty lacing.
Almost clear amber/copper color changes to goldish yellow in front of light.
Smell features toasted bread, sweet malts and hops plus a hint of lager yeast.
Taste has added bitter malt at first with sweeter malt in the middle and finally a kick of spicy hop bitterness.
Just shy of medium bodied with average carbonation that evens out the feel and a dry clean finish.
Smooth and easy to drink, warms well with a faint alcohol bite. Malty and hoppy yet balanced.

Picked this up at Philly's Craft Beer in Langhorne, PA. Make-your-own 6 pack single bottle. I liked this one. A lot. Had I not known it was from a craft brewery in VT, the hops profile and taste was European. Some of my favorite beers are Austrian. So this was a wonderful surprise. "Caramel" color in the glass with a nice lacing foam. Subtle carbonation and a rich mouthfeel. Very well balanced flavor--caramel/biscuit with the perfect hops behind it, complementing the sweetness of the malt with a welcome bitterness. Went down very easily. Went back and bought a 6 pack.

DATE: April 13, 2018... OCCASION: Friday night watching The Office with Shan... GLASSWARE: Paulaner lager pokal... pours a bright golden body with random sized bubbles floating upwards... the head is white, thick but not clumpy.... damp, dank hops aroma spells a toasted malty base... sweet and malty, though a light phenolic waft interjects some brake on the allure... smooth, buttery and pronounced at the throat... highly drinkable and bright at the introduction, and light-bodied overall... the combination of hops makes a sharp, confident lager with soft toasted malts and oats sweetening the crisp finish... lemon, grass, and light spiciness make this a reasonable finish to a week, and one that could accompany a number of events...

Light copper colored beer with a rapidly fading head. Taste is bread,caramel malts and citrusy hops. Overall a pretty decent beer that probably should be tried once.
