In the 12 oz. can during a NWA flight. Reddish amber in color. Nice fluffy head, but lacing was poor in the crappy airline plastic cup. I think this is essentially a Vienna-style ale with a fairly decent malty backbone.

Got this on a trip to minnesota, the only place i have ever seen it. With choices of only buds and millers, this was the best there(except for guiness). It has a nice reddish color, good taste with little head. This is an average beer but better tthan the competition at this bar.

Clear brown with odd grayish head. Light hops on the nose on thick malt backbone. Taste is good malt with hint of caramel. Floral hops play in the background. Good match with pretzels; brings out the malt.

Bottle. The beer pours to a glowing orange body with a creamy off-white head. Nice visible carbonation and decent lacing. The aroma is malty and has that typical earthy toffee and grain sack qualities. Subtle hops. The flavor has tons of malty grains. Light buttery peanuts. Definitely has that Vienna lager quality to it. Light herbal hops.

A little hoppy, but not much depth, seems thin. Aroma lacks, but has smooth and malty tones throughout. Excellent complex finish with a sweet aftertaste. Warm.

12 oz. bottle. Basic nice amber color. Pours a good rocky head, nice clear body with columns of bubbles. Smell offers some nice malty aromas, no suggestion of adjuncts, so thanks for that. Taste is pretty good, malty, but with a good hop note to it, bubbly and a little sticky. Some graniness that does not detract.Crystal malt flavor tends toward the caramel roast side. A noticeable touch of alcohol, but not burning. Again, a nice use of German style hops that offers some spice while holding malts in check.

Love the rich amber color of this, looks like a very dark orange/amber. Not much head or lacing. Nose is lacking as well. A bit of cookies, some maltiness, some sugary sweetness. Palate is graham crackers, mostly malt, not much else. But this is a drinkable beer.

No head, really. A touch spicy with noticeable hops. Jimmy Page? Of Zeppelin fame? Or is it just "James Page"? I dunno. OK and sorta sweet. Oddly, both malty and hoppy. Good!

This was just labelled as James Page Amber - assuming its the same beer. Fizzy light amber with no head! Caramelly and briny aroma. Rich butterscotch flavor and light finish. Decent.

Bottle. Clear amber body with little head. This is definitely a malty beer, as the Vienna style was meant to be. The aroma is sweet with caramel, but there are significant notes of grain — and as it warmed, some hints of canned corn. The flavor is just as malty sweet as the aroma. The finish did present a very slight bitterness. Medium body and syrupy texture. This was more enjoyable colder than warmer, which tells me something.
