From tap at blind tiger in nyc. Lovely clear amber served in lager glass. Aroma: fragrant floral hops and sweet malt. Finish: clean, bright, soft aftertaste.

Can’t believe my little local Grocer stocks this. Lager purest might not approve, cause it tastes like an IPA to me. Very hoppy. burnt toast and caramel corn. Supersize frothy blond head. Best lager.

The 22 oz. bomber was adorned with a label befitting a funhouse theme I associate with Coney Island (although I have never been there personally). The Beer came out orange amber in color with some chill haze. Carbonation was fine and gentle, which made me wonder if this was bottle conditioned. The aroma was very toasty and caramelized and was layered with a follow up smell of spicy noble hops. The taste was well balanced between the simple bready sweetness of caramel malts and surprisingly bitter hops. Not watery like most Vienna lagers, this was a flavorful and caressing treat. Went fabulously with a plate of Indian cashews and Marcona almonds.

A hoppy beer, that I was very happy to try. I was not disappointed at all and really enjoyed drinking it. I would purchase again.

Probably the first good lager I ever had. With actual taste, it left me quite surprised. With hints of caramel and bitterness, but all at a subdued lager level. I found it to be very spicy and herby as well, but all within a comfortable range. I rated it so high, because this is what lagers have the potential to be, instead of light piss water.

pours a clear orange/amber with a large off-white head. toasted malt and hop aroma. awesome flavor with tons of bready, toasty malts and fresh green floral hops while keeping a light body. a fantastic vienna.

ChainGangGuy (4347) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Appearance: Pours a nice, orangey-copper body with a full, frothy off-white head. Tiny-bubbled effervescence. Smell: Mild, toasty caramel maltiness with a touch of graininess. Bright Saaz noble hop bouquet with further notes of grass, citrus, and floral to enjoy as well. Taste: Light caramel and pale maltiness with a slight toastiness and sweetness. Lemony, grassy, even herbal hop flavors with a medium bitterness is fast on the malt’s heels, though. Hint of orange. Floral, fruity finish with a lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: That being said, I defy any person with a soul to not enjoy this Vienna.

Cybercat (3197) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Aroma is strong and malty with just a whisper of fruit - banana on second examination. Color is a dark honey-amber, not like your typical lager, and with a nice thick off-white head that sticks around for a bit. Flavor is smooth, malty with a fair amount of hoppy bitterness and a trace of fruit. Hop flavor dominates the aftertaste. This is rather different from what I expect when drinking a lager.

RSRIZZO (1850) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Aroma is sweet with a little malt. Color is a deep gold with a hint of orange. Carbonation is good with a very thin head. Taste is bright and hoppy. Starting with medium body it goes down with a slight creamy feel. Finish comes in sweet with a hint of malt then a bright hop flavor that has just a touch of citrus and a faint bitterness. After taste is dry with the bitterness riding along. This is a great Lager with amazing hop character.
