Pours an orange/amber color with a big fluffy yellowish-white head. Aroma is sweet bread dough with a hint of hop flowers. Sweet malty taste with notes of maple syrup, roasted malt, and some slight hop bitterness. I’ll have to go along with everyone else here. This is nothing special, but it is clean, tasty, and refreshing.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2007
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 doesn’t stay too long, but it doesn’t drop off immediately either. Towards the end you seem to notice some flaws in it’s degree of smoothness which brings down the drinkability.

It appears I’m 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.

This one was medium red with a long lasting beige head. Definitely the aroma of bread you’s expect from a Vienna. Hops were definitely in the background , but had a spice to them to balance. Not bad.

Headbanger (3280) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2009
12oz bottle 5/12/09 (Binny’s Plainfield)-Pours a light amber with a nice tight off white head. Aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Taste of the same. A decent tasting brew with nothing to write home about.

vikingguy (801) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2009
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.

James Page has made the jump from Homebrewing supplier to microbrewery beautifully. Their consistency is better than it was five year ago, when you were never quite sure what you’d get (rather like home brew). I’ve never been one for the red lager trend, but this one is has guts without coming off as showy.

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.

Looks good in the glass. Dark amber color with a decent head. Pretty average flavor and aroma. This would be a good winter time session lager.

A hazy dark orange beer with a fine collapsing and lazing orange head. The nose is of oranges, yeast, malt, and hints of hops. The flavor is of oranges, yeast, caramel, malt, aroma hops, and slight touches of bitter hops giving it a dry end. Surprisingly yeasty.
