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.

12 oz Bottle via Arctic Liquors Beer of The Month Club. Pours a semi clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is subtle-a bit of toasted grain, some vanilla, and lager yeast. While I am not a fan of the style, this is one of the best i have tasted. It starts with some vanilla, toffee, toasted grains and there is even some fruity esters underneath, some apricot and melon. Light/medium body. Low/moderate carbonation. Very tastey and refreshing. A high quality craft beer that i could easily drink several of.

Honey and burnt caramel on the nose with some soft fruit. Brownish amber color, medium soapy head. Brown sugar and caramel, some nutmeg, great bitter balance. Medium carbonation, lighter medium body, fruity smooth finish. All around excellent beer, understated complexity of flavors and a well-balanced structure.

Dark orange. Fresh bready flavor with some banana. Hoppy nose with earthy and plant-like aromas. Reminds me of Steam Engine Lager by Steamworks.

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.

Stopped in on my way home from Breckenridge. Have to say their food is dynamite! I had to drive so only ordered 1 beer, which was this. Poured a deep amber color, nose of caramel, nuts, and maybe some fruits. It was really malty for a lager, but rather enjoyable. The nose almost nailed the flavors on the palate. Cannot say I have ever had a lager like this, but it was good!

schwaiger (90) - Laramie, Wyoming, USA - APR 27, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours a true amber with a quickly diminishing white head. Well-balanced sweet and bitter notes with a definite presence of lemon poppyseed muffins. Nice, crisp brew with a creamy, citrus finish.

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.

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.
