Here’s another beer from Neshaminy Creek and it’s the fourth one I’ve tried from them. Let’s see how this Vienna Lager is.
Style: Vienna Lager
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “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.”
Random: It’s also the fifth beer I’ve had of this style since starting the blog.
This beer poured with a thick, one finger white head that dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was slightly cloudy and was an amber color with light carbonation visible. The nose was filled with toasted malt and bread. The taste was also malt dominant with some toast and sweetness thrown in. The end of the sip had some very light grass and ended with a touch of bitterness. It had a thicker body than I expected, but was still quite crisp and had moderate carbonation. It had a long finish that lingered on the tongue with toast and the remnants of the hop bitterness as well. For $1.89 a can, it translates into $.16 per ounce, which isn’t bad at all for an easy-drinking, crisp lager. I would highly recommend this one.
