Default Devil's Backbone Vienna Lager

I very much enjoyed their Vienna Lager beer last night. I was looking for a refreshing and lower ABV beer. Well, it is 4.9 % ABV and very tasty but not a 'refreshing' type of beer. I would love to taste this on tap.

I can't hae the same praise for their pale ale/belgian hybrid Belgian Congo--it didn't do it for me even though it is a more refreshing type of beer. Does anyone recommend something from this brewery? After tasting the Vienna Lager I'll be swinging around agian.

I had their Vienna Lager and their IPA in Shenandoah. Both were pretty good.

I just had their Vienna Lager on tap and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm looking to try and brew something similar here soon.
