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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

12/3/16....pours copper/amber, mostly clear, very light white foam. Bready caramel nose. Lightly sweet, bready malt taste. Nice toffee tipped flavor with butterscotch, vanilla blends. Smooth simple flavorful vienna taste. Solid beer.

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.
