Thought this was actually pretty good. I love this style of lager. Malty as balls. Will probably buy this one again.

12 oz. bottle purchased at the brewery. Has a clear amber hue with a white head. Rich, sweetbread smell. Medium bodied with a rich, creamy mouthfeel. Taste is of roasted grains and sweet malts; no surprizes here. Finishes with a slight hop bite.
Smooth and easy drinking

Orange Fire with Off White Ring. Burnt Caramel / Rich Malty Notes on the Nose. Vienna Malt Is Very Nice in This Lager..I prefer This over Schell’s Firebrick. Caramel...Toasted Notes...Thick Almost Syrapy Mouthfeel...Crips Dry Finish. Nice Brew.

I really liked this beer. Nice caramel flavor, nice malty finish. I liked the brewery’s tasting room too. Quaint, but very comfortable.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2006 Nice amber color, but I wish the off-white head would have lasted longer. Some of the remaining head does glide down the side of the glass after each drink, though, and that boosted the appearance score. Semi-sweet, toasted malt aroma and flavor. Very mild caramel finish. A pleasure to drink.

In the bottle at the HyVee Oktoberfest beer tasting in Council Bluffs. Clear amber in color with an ivory head. Aroma of cooked vegetables and malt. The flavor is the same boiled vegetables but also has caramel and toasted malts. The tingly palate finish is not smooth.

Reddish tan, big fluffy off white head. Malty note, hints of biscuits. Well balanced, very flavorfull. I’d call this a darn good vienna.
