Clear coppery/amber color, with no head at all. Aroma, sweet, amlty, light graininess, minimal hops. Grainy on the palate, as well, but overall clean and smooth. Light bodied, but not thin, flavor, and it’s not a bad one, remains sip after sip, gulp after gulp. Not bad at all. A tasty little lager, when you’re not in the mood for anything more challenging. Good crossover brew, for the less adventurous.

Pours a reddish amber color with thin white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma is quite malty with a taste that follows. Slightly bitter finish and a lighter body.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 6, 2007
12 oz bottle purchased at John’s Grocery in Iowa City. Poured a clear orange color. Head was thick and off white with good retention and lacing. Smelled only of husky grains. There was some subtle sweetness on the tongue. Malt dominated flavor with oatmeal, husky grain, and a touch of caramel. Not bad, but nothing special.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear lighter amber with a quickly-receding white head that left a thin film. Aroma was of artificially-sweetened toasty caramel with faint herbal accents.. very simple and cheap smelling. Flavor was a touch better with toasty caramel again and some mild leafy bitterness and light honey sweetness. Light-bodied and too sweet overall with a very dry back end and finish. This had no glaring flaws, but not much going for it either.

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 wasn’t much better, but did get a better with more time and experience drinking it. Won’t get this one again, if I can.

Bottle. Average beer all the way. Poured a lighter amber color with a white head. The head did last for a little while. Left some lacing on the side of the bottle. Aroma was candy sugar, dark malts, caramel, and yeast. Flavor was thin and watery. Yeast and sugar flavors in the finish. Nothing that special.

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.

jcr (2576) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2007
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.

Pours orangey-amber with a very thin head. Aroma is somewhat stale, corn syrup spilled on cardboard, mild pepper notes. Flavor is unoffensive but forgettable, initial bready maltiness balanced by gentle peppery hops and and very slight apple skin note. Drinkable, refreshing.
