Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Pours clear, brown, witha moderate head. Aroma is hoppy with a solid malty backing. Full mouth feel with a lightly fruity quality. Strong hop quality, but really balanced with the malts.

Very nice, rich lager. Bit of hops to it. Nice deep taste, unlike other lagers which feel too light. Well done.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Bottle: Orange hued caramel, ever so slight haze, large frothy off-white head, clumpy lacing.   Musty basement like malt aroma, smidgen of hops, even minor grainess.   Moderate malt base, not as much as I would have thought.   A bit more hop presense than expected.   Clean, with a little cardboardish malt on the finish.   Doesn’t detract tho.   Hint of sweetness throughout.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Could stand to have a bit more thickness.   That would seal the deal for me.   Otherwise more enjoyable than expected.   So far one of the better Shmaltz beers I have had.   Not up to par with Eliot Ness, but still enjoyable.   Would be perfect if it were a little thicker, and slightly sweeter.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Cereal grains in the flavor, some caramel, and toast flavors (very subtle). With a good hop flavor that provides a good crisp bite. Nice lager.

bu11zeye (12150) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a medium-sized creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, grass, and florals. Flavor of caramel, mild grassy hops, nuts, and toasted malt.

krysztofar (344) - belleville, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2007
bomber. solid bronze color gives me hope for this lager. a word that can often be scary. pours with a half inch of solid white head. clean and mild grains appear with some grassy hops as well. clean and very smooth with an impressively full palate. the flavor is less intense than the nose had lead me to believe. still it does taste great. enough rich malt and hop bite to make this a pleasure to drink.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2007
This has a pour that makes one want to drink the beer, a rich amber/orange body highlighted in gols with a tall, dense ecru head. Great lacing. The aroma is caramel and a bit of toffee topped with sturdy hop scents of tart citrus fruits, flowers, and a bit of earthiness. This is well carbonated and spicy warm on the tongue. It’s got rich malty flavors balanced with the aforementioned hops, the latter leading to a crisp, dry, and lightly bitter finish. Interesting interpretation of a Vienna... and quite tasty.

On tap. Slightly auburn pour. Mostly dry, refreshing, with a touch of german malt sweetness. A little spice. Goes down easy. Nice beer, good to see some decent lagers around.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Golden color. Smell of malt, hops, sugar, bread, citrus and some spice. Taste of hops, malt, citrus, spice, caramel, bread and some grass. Refreshing brew.
