UPDATED: FEB 27, 2004 ralph steadman's label depiction of sinister leaping mutant flea-dogs is unsavory, but the appearance of the beer itself is all i ask for in elegant design: a woodstained-orange that almost glows beneath a briefly sudsy crown. full nose of grain and fruit, call it: orange marmalade on a toasted bagel.hops emerge where they should for proper balance; medium body. i had a decent session. you?

Nice amber color. Well balanced flavor. No head retention. Nice middle-of-the-road amber. Very cool label.

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.

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.

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.
