BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States

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.

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.

12oz. can poured into a tumbler glass

A- a clear amber with a half finger of off white head. Not much lacing, but didn't expect much.

S- toasty malts, feint fruity esters, and a touch of floral hops.

T- Very toasty caramel malt balanced by a touch of bitterness from the hops on the backend.

M- Medium body, and has that crisp lagery feel to it.

O- nothing amazingly complex, but a solid, straightforward brew.

A dark toasty lager with a smooth mellow and crisp mouthfeel. Darker than Brooklyn lager and from what I remember more toasty than Sam Adams but on a similar level of quality.

Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company "Churchville Lager"
12 fl. oz. can, no production code or freshness dating
$1.99 @ Giant, Havertown, PA

Churchville Lager pours a slightly hazy deep copper colored body beneath a creamy head of off-white. The head retention is good but the lacing is just average. Gently fruity and mildly toasty malt greets you in the nose along with some floral hops, and unfortunately, some detracting esters. The flavor follows suit, opening up the malt to display a little bit more grain, and the hops a touch more grass and spice. It's medium-light in body and gently crisp, balanced by a firm bitterness that's somewhere in the 20 - 25 IBU range.

12 oz. can poured into an Eagles glass. From my work

L - brown-amber color with a clear hue. One finger sustainable foam dome. Ring around the glass, loose lacing.

S - caramel notes, light hop essense. Some vanilla in there too.

T - Intense malt flavor, slight aroma-matching taste. Sharp, soapy hop finish.

F - loose syrupy feel with medium carbonation. Clean but thick finish. What you would expect from a Vienna lager
