Definently one of the better lagers out there. Nice aroma. Not as lagery as one might expect. Well worth a try.

Bottled. Beautiful amber colour, with a medium fluffy, rich white head that persisted throughout. Malty dry aroma, slightly sweet. Totally scrumptious malty, bread-like aroma. Smooth body and palate. Very complete.

Excellent color, very smooth, vaguely hoppy but not excessively bitter. Refreshing but not too light, with plenty of body and a sweet finish. Consistency varies widely, though, from batch to batch. I have had some outstanding cases and others have been almost mediocre.

Big head, copper body. Hoppy, floral and citrusy nose. Very hoppy, good malts. Is this really a vienna? Doesn't taste a thing like Dos Equis.

This was the most abundant beer from Brooklyn that I found on tap in NYC. A decent body reminds me that all lagers are not terrible--there is a grassy, sortof tart, acidic profile to this beer as well. I enjoyed this beer with some spicy Chinese fusion cuisine.

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.
