BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
neshaminycreekbrewing.com

Style: Vienna Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Pennsylvania breweries are known for world-class lagers, and this 2013 Great American Beer Fest Gold Medal winning Vienna-style, no fuss amber lager is clean, crisp, and brewed with Munich, and Vienna malts that give it a touch of malt backbone and toast-like character. Hopped exclusively with German Tettnanger hops, it’s got enough hop bitterness to counter that malt backbone as well. Lagered for six-weeks, Churchville Lager comes in at 4.9% ABV, and is the perfect beer for a night out with friends, and family, or the holiday BBQ. Don’t be afraid to order the new ‘Lager’ in town.

Had this on tap at the Federal Taproom in State College on the Friday before the 2018 season opener verses App. State.
Poured amber in color with a thin head that had little lasting power.
Aroma: Getting a definite balance, as both MALTS (says it is brewed with both Munich and Vienna Malts) and hops (that are exclusively German Tettnanger).
TASTE: alance continued as some hop bitterness and the some toasty malts show up with each sip.
This was a night with a party of 8, looking forward to the next days game. My focus on the beer was minimal but I enjoyed this draft.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear copper/amber pour with 2 fingers of fluffy white head. Falls fast... nice lacing.

S: Malty. Sweet and biscuity.

T.F: Follows the nose. Sweet toasted malts and light grains. Balanced with mild hop bitterness. Caramel and earth. Light and easy drinking.

O: A solid Vienna Lager... very sessionable and a great dinner beer.

On draft at the Borough Brewpub location, in a pint glass

Clear, copper colored, brith white colored head. Decent head retention. Nice pleasant bready aroma, mild earthy hops. Similar flavor, well balanced - spot on for Vienna Lager. Fuller bodied for an easy drinking lager.

I am not sure what I am tasting in this beer but it is not something I care for. Only bought a 6 pack and glad of it. Their cream ale is delicious but this not so much.

Poured into a narrow pint glass: color is dark copper/amber, head is off white/light tan which presents about 1/2 inch thick then dissipates to a thin top; head leaves some lacing on the glass sides.

Smell is mild to moderate toast and caramel from vienna/munich malts; moderate earthy bitterness.

Taste is malty, toasty, light grassy hops.

Mouthfeel is a bit crisp, near sharp levels, but not overcarbonated.

Overall, a very good lager, vienna style with pleasant maltiness.

Malty, sweet, crisp. Picked up a six pack of 12oz cans while in NJ. Pours a hazed golden/amber hue with a moderate head. Low clarity. Aroma is toasted malt, wheat cereal, caramel, light floral hops. Taste is cereal, toasted white bread, caramel and bitter hops. Slightly sweet and slightly bitter. Drinks clean and crisp with nice carbonation. Easy drinker and well belanced.
