Floral aroma, sweet tasting, amber color. Too carbonated in my opinion.

Deep amber, frothy beige head, nice lace. Nose is malt, slightly sweet, as is the front, middle is light, finish is lightly carbonated, dry, fair hop presence, drinkable.

aracauna (3191) - Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2002
This tasted a lot like the the Dunkles I had at Gordon Biersch, but better. Basically typical dark lager flavors with just a little more character, probably coming from the steam-style brewing.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 Pretty good lager. It reminded me of a less hoppy version of Brooklyn Lager. Ends very smooth and dry, with a slight bit of sweetness.

pivo (2622) - GERMANY - MAR 22, 2002
This is an attractive beer - dark amber color. Very faint non-descript nose. Clean malty taste with a moderate bitter component. Smooth round mouth feel with slight butter tones. The paper finish (again from Flying Dog) gets negative points from me. Definitely a new world interpretation of a Vienna lager. OK beer.

Aubrey (3482) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2006 Nice appearance, with a bright copper color and a frothy head. Smooth with a rich malt bill. Surprisingly complex flavor; caramel-like, toffee sweetness. Toasted aromas. Dry finish, with a little evident alcohol in the back. Some earthy/woodsy/smoky flavors in the back... and some in the aroma. Kept me interested.

Out of the 6 Flying Dog’s I tried tonight, this one has the best label. Typical lager with a somewhat bitter taste.

TheRavishingOne (45) - Cumming, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2002
An overall average beer with an average, yet pleasant, aroma. It also has an average, yet pleasant flavor, but it finished with the distinct taste of rubbing alcohol. It is a good thing to be average sometimes, but next time, I think I’ll skip that last sip.
