COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber colored and medium-bodied, this Vienna-style lager has a slight toasted/caramel malt taste with a mild hop finish. It's slow-brewed with bottom fermenting yeast and German hops.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Light amber and a small head, almost no head. Musky and earthy hops in the nose. Sweetly malty flavors. Hops are bitter and fruity. Citrus in the tail.

Beaver (1342) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange-brown with a small fizzy head that quickly disappears.

The aroma is earthy malts and sweet caramel with a touch of spicy hops.

The flavor is rather bland. It has some sweet watery malts up front with a bit of a spicy lightly bitter finish. The flavors become more apparent as it warms. The mouthfeel is medium bodied but watery.

Overall, a nice, albeit run of the mill, beer.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Thin head, dark clear golden body. Light malty and mineral aroma. Excellent balance between sweet malts and tangy hop bitterness. Light mouthfeel, but not at all watery. Drying finish, clean. Well made beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 6, 2005
NABA ’05: Copper, light sweet hoppy notes and a nice malty body.I would love to drink a pint of this. This makes me have fantasies about triple decoction marris otter lagers.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Light brownish yellow in color. Pleasantly aromatic for the style with an equal balance of caramel, sugary toasted malt and floral hop aromatics. Sweet bready malt flavor with caramel and biscuity accents.

Golden rule of beer drinking - the funkier the name, the crappier the beer. This watery brew has a horrible sweet flowery hop taste, like someone has put a shot of orange squash in the bottle. Better than Budweiser, I suppose. I’m pleased to say I haven’t seen this close to home.

3fourths (8238) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Dark orange. Fresh bready flavor with some banana. Hoppy nose with earthy and plant-like aromas. Reminds me of Steam Engine Lager by Steamworks.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2004
Tasted in the glorious state of Colorada. Tasted at Keystone at an altitude of appoximately 9,156 ft above sea level. Tastes and seems like a standard continental lager.

Perceptron (32) - USA - JUL 9, 2004
Had this on tap at the brewery. I was expecting more vienna malt taste in this one and was let down. The Pilsner had more malty flavors. Hops made themselves known only breifly in the background, waving as they slid down my throat. I would have liked for them to hang around a bit longer.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - MAY 7, 2004
UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Light amber with a thin, but nice topping. Little aroma at first, but this has a nice caramel-malt flavor, and nicely bittered on the swallow. Excellent Vienna-style lager.
