COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rich amber color and caramel flavor of this beer are derived from the generous amount of caramel malt in our recipe, with just a dash of roasted unmalted barley for a subtle toasted flavor in the background. The sweetness, body, and mouth feel tell you that this is an all-malt beer. The finish has a balanced edge of Willamen and Casade hoppiness which cuts through the malty character, leaving a clean palate which beckons for more. Note: the terminology of "stein" refers to the appropriate drinking vessel and not to a type of beer made with hot rocks.

bartlebier (1723) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2013
Draught samples + full pints@source during & after brewery tour 23viii13. Better than expected, stein-by-name only Vienna lager with full and round fruity malts qualities, grain character, a smooth, "fat" yet clean palate and just enough earthy-floral hops to balance those out.

ALLOVATE (2410) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2013
After wiping away the tears of upset from my cheeks at the realisation this is in fact not a steinbier it was on to the tasting. Nutty, sherryish and earthy nose with plenty of punch from what seems like swarf-bin rust and boiled kelp. A good lot of citrus and fell stone fruit in there too - a little too leftfield for a Vienna. Settles a cloudy tawny orange with a mist of floaties. Headless. A mild burnt twig note edges a lot of rich, sweet and biscuity malt on the palate. Peppery backend with a similarly spicy, woody and herbal finish. A little citrus breaks it up. Very lean in body with sprightly effervescence. Sweetens further as it warms so chilled is the only drinking option. Rough around the edges yet drinkable. Just doesn’t pull it off though!!

Ed5388 (2092) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber/copper color with a finger of off white head. Aroma of roasted and caramel malts, grass, and light citrus hops. Taste is identical. Roasted and caramel malts up front, followed by some grassiness, and some citrus bitterness in the finish. T - The hops are subtle in the nose but really show up in the flavor. The toasted caramel is bold without the sweetness. Bready with a hint of nutmeg. Citrus hops are a welcomed tartness. The finish is crisp and slightly grassy.

GoldForg (11) - Hainesville, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2013
A dark amber color with a head that lasts well after the initial pour. A very malty taste, yet a relatively clean finish.

felsenpils (110) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Clear amber color. Low carbonation. Aroma is of American hops. Very thin body and flavor. Aftertaste is of west coast hops. This tastes like they used a cheap malt base and then tried to doctor it up with specialty malts and lots of oily hops. "Stein Beer"? Well if a gimmick is all you got .............

jmagnus87 (2427) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Draft. Pours a dark amber with a half finger of white head. Aroma of caramel and pale malt. Taste is about the same. Light caramel and toffee. Very enjoyable but nothing too special.

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 21, 2013
A clear amber color, Scents of malt and light yeast. The full flavor of the malts hit you first but the crispness of the lager still come though. Palate fades quickly leaving a light malt coating.

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Draft at the brewery. The color of an aged, bronze statue. Drinks with a light, sweet malt, like a little bit of light caramel candy. Middle of the road offering. (#5142, 7/5/2013)
