COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after the original seven Munich breweries that hosted Oktoberfest, THE beer celebration dating back to 1571. It is a deep rich amber Bavarian Lager (known as a Vienna Style to beer aficionados) with a full, round voluptuous body and a very malty finish. Enjoy with pork, roast chicken, sausages and mixed grills.

Deep reddish hues, gentle sweetness, hop bouquet. Excellent, extremely drinkable. Sweet with a saazy touch, not much grassy. A dry finish emerges. Just a touch of citrus (orange). Appropriately carbonated. Excellent example of the style. (on tap at brewpub)

Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 27, 2006
Served on tap at the brewpub and shared with my wife, who was enthusiastic about it. Light aroma with just a touch of malt & hops. Clear amber color, average head that diminshed quickly. Very mild and balanced bitterness, light bodied, dry finish. Very drinkable at the front of the glass but seemed a bit watery toward the end of the glass as the beer warmed and carbonation faded. Quaff these early and enjoy, save the heftier brews for slower savoring.

Tap. Sweet light honey malt aroma. Amber with moderate head. Slightly sweet full malt flavor. Full bodied - a very nice beer.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Toasted bready malts provide both crispness and caramel sweetness in this creamy and highly sessionable Vienna. This is the kind of beer which truly showcases this brewer’s prowess.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the clear amber.
-Carbonation is smooth enough to let all those malts express their inner beauty.
-Some fruitiness seeps from the caramel maltiness.
-All flavors’ subtleties are perfectly integrated; this is not one for the high octane lover, but rather a delicious pint of humility.

On tap at the brewpub.

Decent attempt at the style and easy to drink. Dominated by malt presence with an interesting lingering aftertaste. Decent session beer.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Clear golden-copper body. Malty nose of bread crusts and light spice. Nice malty character, medium sweet with moderate bitterness in the finish. Fairly complex in subtle ways and not at all cloying. A nice, subtle Vienna. Not bad for the requisite brewpub amber.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Pours a clear deep copper amber with a thin-lacing 2-finger width high head. Sweet toasty caramel malty aroma has a touch of bready German yeast. Body starts with a nice sweet crystal maltiness and some sticky caramel flavor with a touch of grain. Finishes toasty and lightly bittersweet. Very true to style and enjoyable.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2006
Tap at 5 seasons. Pours a light to medium amber, clear with a thin white lasting head. Aroma is light, but sweet malt and light herbal and spicy euro hops. Flavor is smooth with munich and vienna toasted malts, light caramel, hops and slightly nutty. Good crisp clean and smooth finish, although the body seems a bit too light.

BigMilly8 (384) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2008
From tap at brewpub : A big spicey malty smell. Pours clear dark amber color with good lacing and half finger head. Spices and malt on the taste side. Medium body wtih a very smooth feel. Not much aftertaste. I really liked this one.

tomciccateri (995) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUL 4, 2005
On draught at the spaceous brewpub. A clear amber but a mellow hops presence gives way to a very soft, rich malty flavor. A nice, well-balanced Bavarian beer.
