COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This amber Austrian lager has a distinct bready malt aroma and flavor followed by a crisp clean finish typical of lager styles. The nose also shows plenty of the spicy hop aroma contributed by the use of Saaz hops. Winner of a Bronze medal at the 1999 GABF.

Tap at Wilmington. Aroma of berries, citrus and spicy hops, toasted malt, peach, pineapple, banana, sweet-bread malt. Flavor has a big toasted character with sweet caramel malt and generally fruity sweetness, all accompanied by bittering hops. Toasty finish. Exquisitely drinkable. A hell of a lot of flavor for what was listed as a 4.4% beer at the brewpub. Gorgeous.

On tap at Iron Hill Phoenixville. Pours amber hue with a white head and light carbonation. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and hints of hops. Full, crisp body. Caramel malt is nicely balanced by herbal hops on the palate. Long, dry finish. Very fresh, excellent Vienna.

Draft @ Newark-Poured a cloudy amber color w/a moderate off white head. Rich roasted malt aroma. Full roasted malt flavor w/traces of bread dough, caramel, toffee, & spice. Long malt finish w/just the right touch of bitterness. Thought this was quite good; could drink it every day.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Lanaster. Pours an amber colored body with a sticky off-white head. The aroma is sweet toasted malts with some carmel notes and some light fruits. The flavors are a nice blend of toasted and carmel malts with some tasy citrus hops present and some mild resiny pine notes and a yeasty finish. Another surprisingly good brew from the Hill.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2008
IH pville. Pours a nice clear deep copper/light amber with a nice light white head- lasts with some lace on the side. Aroma is very crisp and toasted malts, slight caramel sweetness, and burnt toast, and a nice light floral german hop character. Good clean flavor lots of fresh baked bread, toasted malts, some caramel sweetness, and a crisp clean light hoppy finish. This probably sells really well with the Yeungling crowd, but it is actually a great beer for the style.

20100215 tap at Newark spot. Not sure how I’ve not rated this before because I get a pint pretty much every time I go to an Iron Hill. Nice teak red color with lacing off white head. Aroma is dark bread, baked beans, grass mulch and mixed earthy hops. Light bodied with airy eff and a cleansing tickle. Soft sweet bready Malta but not at all cloying. Some slight peppery, pretzely, and briny notes. Very nice, clean, well done session beer that should be an example to so many brewpubs trotting out weak interpretations of approachable styles and calling them craft. Well done Iron Hill.

egajdzis (5299) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Poured a reddish amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma off floral hops, citrus fruits, caramel malts, and toasted dough. Taste was also very toasted, with caramel malts, toffee, citrus fruits, pine, some resin, and a dry, hoppy finish.

DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Draft at P-ville. Deep coppery color with ruby highlights and off-white head. Caramel malt, hops, and vinous fruit are in the nose, and the taste is solid caramel malt, with assertive hops and vinous fruit, all intermingling very well together, making this one very enjoyable.
