COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is an American interpretation of the old Vienna-style lager. Exported from Europe to the U.S. and Mexico in the 1870s, this style had nearly died out by the end of Prohibition. Our version is medium-bodied, with a soft malt flavor balance by spicy hops, an herbal aroma and a slight citrus flavor.

The aroma is smoky. The palate is smoky. This beer is way too smoky and hoppy to be a Vienna lager as it is billed. An odd beer.

Rich, enjoyable lager in the Vienna style. Deep reddish color, rich frothy, long lasting head. Nice aroma of hops and biscuits. Malty flavor with lots of hidden flavor notes appearing at different points as you go from start to finish in the glass. If only every U.S. brewer made a lager like this one. Very enjoyable.

Excellent beer, malty and clean taste that leaves you quite refreshed as you should be with a lager. Decent hops and hearty flavor.
