Notes: This Vienna-style lager was brewed with a double decoction mash — our first time using this historical process for our lagers! With a base of German Vienna malt and a touch of CaraAroma, Cross Stitch is a warming, toasty lager with a smooth mouthfeel. Aromas of freshly baked bread and subtle caramel are complemented by flavors of sweet malt and toffee, ending with a crisp finish.

Can purchased from FLX Wienery in Dundee, NY.

This one pours a dark-ish amber color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This one smells like fresh crusty bread, caramel, and grassy hops.

This is simple but clearly quite well done. The malt backbone is spot on, with slight caramel sweetness, and lots of fresh bready malt character. There's a light but crisp hop character - slightly spicy and grassy.

This is light bodied, clean, and super drinkable, with a great crisp finish.

Grimm really seems to be taking great care in making to style lagers, and I'm very much *here* for that.

Amber pour with a sturdy two-finger off-white head that laces. True to the Vienna taste and tradition. Caramel and malty taste with a satisfying dry grain finish. Could almost hear Mozart while I drank it!
