UPDATED: APR 18, 2005 A really good lager, somewhat in the mold of Samuel Adams Boston Lager, but much better. Sweetish malts give way too a nicely hoppy spicy, dry-ish finish, lots of flavour, yet mildly refreshing, really nice quaffer.

i was hoping not to be disappointed with this beer but I was. Very nice color but that is as far as it goes. Very light bodied, no aroma, no head and a bad aftertaste.

This is a pretty tasty vienna lager - light copper - small head but good lacing - aroma is sweet and slightly flowery - pretty heavy and malty for a lager - with a decent amount of hopping as well, rounding out this unusually creamy vienna - slightly buttery as well - one of my new favorite lagers.

Clear amber brew with a small, creamy white head. Good lacework.
The aroma is floral and malty with a hint of cocoa.
This lager tastes hearty, malty and well-hopped. Acetic, not bitter, hops seem to have been used. Excellent balance.
Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fairly lively carbonation. Short, crisp finish. Like all other viennas that I've tasted, this beer would probably go very well with a meal.

First tried on tap at a social function. Nice beer. It has a thick, rich flavor. Substantial is a good word. A great everyday drinker.

Flavours run deep and are complex.Nice appearance but I couldn't get away from a slightly 'tinny' feel and an aftertaste that whilst not unpleasant certainly wasn't the most friendly I have come across, Having read reviews raving about this one I have got to say that I feel a bit dissapointed.Its all a matter of taste butI cant help feel that this is an overrated beer-boring and old fashioned label as well.

A great Vienna - not quite as crisp as Elliot Ness or, especially, Riverwest Stein, but completely traditional and lovely - all butter and caramel here, but crisp nonetheless, only a tad flowery, tight hallertau ending. Yum.

THIS was actually my farewell beer as my I bought at departure at airport. Liked it better in a large glass than the sips from friends plastic cup at brewery (not fair asssessment). Much better than I had thought, though not particularly special. Round mouth feel and good balance for what is essentially an easy drinker. An all night session perhaps, though I would perhaps head for "higher ground" by personal choice.

Hoppy, definitely; somewhat fruity (grapefruit comes mostly to mind, but it is mild). An interesting variation on the style, and a welcome relief, even if I'm not ultimately a fan. (on tap, Brooklyn Brewery)
