A very good lager that I enjoyed in the best bar in the world (brickskellar Washington DC). I had heard many good things about this brewry so I had to check this lager out. It has very good flavor in the malt. A nice bit of hoppiness and it drank very smooth

Unless its from Germany I usually steer clear of that four letter word.....LAGER. This was honestly the first Vienna I’ve had. Poured out a golden color with a big white head. Had a typical lager aroma with some notes of sweet malts like carmel. Right off the bat I was impressed by this lager. It had a nice taste with more complexity than expected with some notes of carmel and a slightly bitter finish. Not a bad brew at all

Deep golden color with a white head. The taste is a full malty pattern with a balanced slight dry bitterness on the palate.

This must be over-rated or maybe this was better in years past. I was impressed by it’s color, it’s flavor was good but not exceptional, not worthy of being in the 70th percentile.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 One of my all-time faves! Pours mahogany with a tall, foamy head. The aroma, which normally diminishes once the tastebuds have hit the brew, stays around for the session. The roasted malt blends with the adequately crisp finish quite well, all the while dipping in caramel overtones. The finish/aftereffects/effervescence hangs around (in a good way), inviting another pull. Nice integration.

Golden-amber with ok head. Hoppy-citrus aroma. Caramel-nutty and bitter flavour. Nice palate.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
08.25.04 12oz bottle. Reddish amber pour with fine head. Some flowery aromas are surprising along with a more comfortable biscuity and lemongrass nose. Flavors are subdued, flitting atop a slightly sweet cardboardy front and a floral perfume that lingers in the throat and nose. Not at all what I expected, not totally swell. Better choice at this particualr bar than duds like Stella, Newcastle, Smithwicks, etc.

Pours amber in color, has nice hoppy smell to it. Very nice hoppy bite in taste and goes down smooth. Overall good for its style.

I sampled one bottle that I received in a trade with j_b for a IPA that I despised. There was some head that disapated quickly. The hops was most noticeable right off, but thabkfully not in the clean aftertaste. I’ll prefer Yuengling to this product.

Enjoyed this in a 20 oz "Brewtus" at the local Applebee’s after discovering they had it on tap. I really enjoyed this, tasty and easy to drink.
