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 (3452) - 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.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - FEB 23, 2002
Clear amber, so-so head. Exceptional nose of malt, pears, brown sugar,vanilla. Very soft in mouth, lush with flavors of caramel, malt, broen sugar and others. Pretty complex with a nice hopping all the way through to the end. Not your typical lager.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 A very good beer. Went down smooth with a pleasing aftertaste. Rerated this 9 years later. Not as impressed. average

joet (2228) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JAN 23, 2002
A rich carmel colored with a fine milky carmel aroma. Well-balanced, nice springy hops. Soft in the mouth with medium effervescence. I like this brewery.

A suprisingly good lager with a ’tangy’ taste to it.
