Bottle. Clean slightly sweet malt aroma with a touch of grass. Copper colored with a thin, mostly diminishing white head. Clean malty flavor with a light mouthfeel and a quick dry finish. Enough hops for balance without showing up in the flavor. Thin and easy to drink, kind of like a slightly less flavorful Point Classic Amber.

Bottle at the Point Brewery. Not bad, orangy-amber in color, light head, mild malt nose. Good flavor, highly drinkable.

NeonLX (261) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Poured from a 12-oz. bottle: clear, medium amber with a thinnish white head. Decent lacing. Somewhat grainy aroma. Surprisingly hoppy taste with a good underlying dose of malt. Smooth mouthfeel with average carbonation. Nice, clean finish.

Golden / light amber body, with a head that quickly dissipated. No real lacing. The initial aroma was malty and inviting, but its intensity dwindled right along with the head. The flavor was malty, yet it was rather weak. Very subtle hop presence. Tastier Vienna’s aren’t too difficult to find, so I doubt I’ll purchase this one again.

From bottle. Poured rust color with quick dissipating head. Mild taste of barley. Easy drinking beer but nothing to remember it for.

Not bad! Imagine my surprise of having this on a recent Northwest flight. Maybe it’s because NWA has a hub in MN. Anyhow, a bit of malty flavor and really nice. It hit the spot and I had it in a can! Give it a try.

consumed from keg in plastic glass at a party... plenty of hops, but not much body and not much of a nice malty/grainy base which i like in my beers, but cup for cup, i'd rather be swigging this than the usual party keg beers...

HopasaurusRex (195) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Can-on a Northwest Air flight-I don’t think Page actually brews the canned version, as it says New Ulm, MN-so maybe Schell contract brews it for them. Anyway, it was extremely off. A very harsh metallic finish and a flabby munich malt character that reminded me off a bad homebrew. The worst $5 I ever spent for a beer.

Not too malty like the description says but smooth indeed. Another prime example of microbrewery success. Very good for Minnesota brewers.
