It made me blink a lot. Not bad, not great. An above average beer but not one I truly recommend. The commercial description is fairly accurate (not as aromatic as they claim).

This beer reminds me a LOT of Sam Adams, except it isnít quite as good for some reason that I just canít put my finger on. A little more burnt flavor, maybe.

THis has got to be one of their best. No other Vienna style that Iíve had even comes close. An almost chunky caramel malt with a nice thick-hop flavor (iíve never before referred to hops as íthickí, but it seems to fit here.) All your Viennaís should be compared to this!

Another good beer. Damn Clevelanders seem to know their beer. By only complaint was it was a tad on the hoppy side for me

Very creamy and rich. Reddish color. Great appetizing finish. They said this beer is the best to go with a Chicago-style deep dish pizza.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2003 Malty, flavorful, buttery with a hint of sourness and considerable floral hop bitterness. This stuff is remarkable! Where can I get me some more?

Very drinkable. Malty flavor balanced with light noble hop flavor and aroma. Slightly buttery but finishes clean.

My choice of the great Great Lakes beers. Cleveland is a city where I have many cousins and good warm memories of rich conversation and laughter. This beer calls those moments to mind as it too is rich and warm, malty without being overpowering. Yum!

Bottle. A rich deep orange-red color with a nice head. A dry malty crisp and clean flavor. Very nice!
