It appears Iím going with the average. This beer was a little tough for me to put my finger on. At times like a (pale) ale, at times an amber quality came out and it seemed more lagery. Anyhow, not much hops. "Toasted" and "bready" are quite adequate descriptors as illinismitty wrote. Pretty clean beer.

Served out of a can on a Northwest Airlines flight. Pours a brownish/orange with a big head and good lacing. Muted nose with an almost metallic hint to it. Taste is sweet and smooth with just barely a slight bitter end. Flavor doesnít stay too long, but it doesnít drop off immediately either. Towards the end you seem to notice some flaws in itís degree of smoothness which brings down the drinkability.

A nice amber, red, brown colour with a ample head. malty but not sweet taste that has caramel overtones. enoyugh hop finish at the end to keep this from being bland. very nice beer - would have enjoyed it more if it was not dserved in an awful frozen glass.

Nice malty, apricot aroma. At first I thought this was an amber ale (I didnít look too closely at the label). As it warmed, however, it began to get an odd bitter, nutty, sweaty flavor that did not work for me. As amber lagers go, this is not bad.

Bottle pours a nice amber color with a decent head and no lace. The aroma is of slight hops. The flavor is slightly yeasty, malty, and a minor hop finish with a rather thin body. Overall, fair...

I really enjoyed this one. There was a nice fluffly head, and the colour was a very sparkling clear copper type colour. The flavour was good, nice and malty with an excellent hop finish. Honestly the best of itís category Iíve had so far.

Pours an attractive golden-amber color with quick diminishing off-white head. Aroma has hints of caramel, malt, grass and some grapefruity citrus. Taste starts w/ sweet caramel and fades to an earthy hoppiness; finally a clean malty finish. Lingering sweet/bitter aftertaste. Light mouthfeel, sweet, moderately hopped. Good easy drinking Vienna style amber.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2004 I thought this was some pretty good shit. Dry taste, a little bitter. I can taste the barley.

Bottle, not a great beer. I was pleased with other selections from Stevens Point in the James Page line, but this one really disappointed. Aroma was a little skunky, like a poorly made pilsner, flavor wasnít much better, but did get a better with more time and experience drinking it. Wonít get this one again, if I can.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into a tall glass. Appearance: Clear amber with thin off-white head; no lacing. Aroma: Sweet caramel and bready malts. Thatís it. Taste: Where is the taste? Light bready malts with the slightest touch of noble hops. Palate: Moderately high carbonation, very thin, watery body. Overall: I have a hard time believing this is a Vienna. Nothing offensive here, but certainly nothing worth returning to either.
