12 ounce can poured into a tulip glass. Canned 11/30/21, so six months old.

L---Almost clear, rich amber color. Frothy khaki head faded down to a cap pretty quickly and left beautiful lacing.

S---Fairly light aroma of breadiness and caramel.

T---Sweet & malty. Bread and caramel like in the nose, but stronger.

F---Medium bodied with a coating feel. Mild carbonation.

O---Pretty good offering in a style I'm not a big fan of.

To date, the best Vienna lager I have had, hands down...

Great looking beer with a rich, malty taste, and the mouthfeel was medium-bodied. The least appealing attribute was the smell - or barely lack thereof. I really had to breath in deep to get any of the malty or bready scent that it had. Overall, a great lager - one I will keep an eye out moving forward.

Pleasant afternoon lager, pretty close to true Vienna style. One of my go-to summer favorites, and locally produced for me, a big plus.

Poured from a 12oz can into a cup

L: Amber and hazy. Short head.
S: Smells deep and richly of bready malts.
T: The flavor is malts/grains/slightly husky, fruit/dark fruit, mild caramel and a slightly sweet/beery finish
F: Heavier body with a less-pronounced carbonation makes for a thicker mouthfeel.

Overall a very solid lager

A pour of a dull copper colored liquid from a 12 oz. can into a clear pint glass provides very little head, nor lacing, despite an abundance of carbonation. Almost no aroma is present. The taste is of a bland lager, without any special characteristic. Not much better than the standard American commercial lager, except it is more colorful.

It is the blessing & curse of The CANQuest's (tm) backlog that there are multiple iterations of the same CANned beer awaiting my CANtention. This is one such example with the original iteration having been procured during a CAN seminar at the brewery during CBC. My former editor/co-publisher thought that I had wasted one of his precious Press passes, but The CANQuest (tm) works in mysterious (& often unseen) ways!

From the CAN: "IBU[:] 20"; "Core Series"; "The other lager. A rich amber brown pour has a bready backbone that is balanced by a variety of German Style hops."; "All Double Nickel beers are unfiltered and unpasteurized. Sediment in the can is normal."

Hmm. That last gave me pause so after Crack!ing open the vent on this CAN, I CANducted a slow, gentle C-Line Glug so as NOT to rouse any lees that may have settled in the meantime. I was rewarded with two-plus fingers of foamy, soapy, rocky, tawny head with decent retention, slowly falling to wisps. My CANcern was its clarity & lo & behold, it was NE-quality! My patience paid off. Color was Amber to Deep-Amber/Light-Copper (SRM = > 9, < 13). Nose had a lightly-toasted breadiness, like when you buy a new toaster & set it to its lowest setting to give it a whirl. VERY lightly toasted. I really did not get much in terms of hops, but they are not the featured attraction in the style. Mouthfeel was medium, but a solid medium, big for a Lager. The taste was a sad reminder of just how far we fell from grace with Prohibition. This was malty, but a restrained malty, holding the sweetness in check. It had a definite breadiness, a light toastiness and nothing in terms of perceptible hops. Hmm. Nice. Finish was actually semi-dry as there was not a lot to register it as "sweet". I was suitably impressed. YMMV.

Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass.

L: Beautiful amber and hazy. Short off-white head.
S: Smells deep and richly of bready malts.
T: Deliciously sweet, caramel malts with maybe some fruityness like an apricot. Could liken it to a soft bread like challah or Hawaiian rolls. Not super complex, but it's not trying to be. Just good, full flavor.
F: Heavier body with a less-pronounced carbonation makes for a thicker mouthfeel. Not slammable per-se.

Awesome lager. My favorite of Double Nickel so far.
