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.

12oz bottle. Pours an light copper colored orange color with a half inch of head. Some lacing. The aroma is toasted malts, sweet bread, straw, and grassy hops. The taste is a blend of sweet malts, grassy hops, and a bit doughy. Finishes with a crispness of the malts along with more grassy and floral hops. Very drinkable with a medium to light body, but packs a good amount of flavor.

The beer comes in a pale amber color.

The beer offers sweet breadiness, a bit of grainy malts, a wonderful lingering white sugar, wonderfully crisp and carbonated. Staying true, it lingers on the sweetness, with the crisp bitterness hitting on the finish.

"A little of Austria, a lot of Vermont"

Cannot express how impressed I've been with their traditional, old world style lager. My friend and I have been searching for American versions of these classic styles, without them being "Americaized"...i.£ hoppy versions of traditional brews. Lo and behold, The Von Trapp lagers!!

Thw Vienna lager was the first one I tried/purchased. I was blown away by the quality and the fact it didn't an excess of hops, like most American versions of Pilsners and lagers. I like mine more true to the original style and flavor profile. Not only is it true to the original style, its freakin local!!

A classic look, amber gold color, mild carbonation and a light, white foam cap, just enough coverage, dissipates pretty fast.

The aroma has the perfect blend of bready-sweet vienna malt, green and herbal light hops with the tell tale buttery lager yeast.

The flavor is a very clean, sparkling malt, slightly sweet and bready with a minor kick of green-veggie hops and a perfect herbal, earthy and slightly funky lager yeast blend. Balance: perfect. Flavor's are bold but true to style. It's like going to Europe, but staying in Vermont.

The feel is light and very crisp, the pure spring water goes a long way in the overall quality and effect. Mildly slick malt, crisp finish. Nice!!

The herbal and earthy lager funk is right on! The x factor is balance. Traditional flavor balance and still bold and satisfying ...without too many hops, imagine that.

This is a go-to when I want a no grills, straight, traditional lager.
