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.

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Dark copper in color, with little head. Malty aroma with a little yeast in the background. Good bitterness yet still malty. This is a beer I could drink all night.

This was a very fruity beer. Beautiful color. Almost reminded me of an IPA. Very refreshing.

jaymobrown (1734) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2004
Bottle. Light amber, tarnished color. Some mildly oat roasted malt flavors. Mostly a hoppy-ish beer in the end. Watery texture. It’s a lager.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 28, 2004
Clear reddish appearance, good head formation. Fairly clean malty aroma, mildly toasty. Sweet smooth creamy malt palate, mild spiciness. Fairly bitter citric finish seems a little out of place but pretty good beer overall.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUL 18, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2004 My first "Vienna", tried this after actually driving through the Riverwest area on the way to a friends.. Pours a beautiful dark red/amber color. Aroma is malt with a hint of something else there. Flavor is dominated by Malt, with caramel and roasted tones to it with a crisp citrus hop aftertaste. Overall a bit malty to me, but a damn fine beer.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 30, 2004
12 oz bottle: dark red-orange, clear liquid. Creamy head and elegant lacing…malty aroma with some honey & fresh flowers. Nice hoppiness on the palate…surprisingly clean and tasty – a light caramel stickiness rounds out the hop/malt combination of flavours. I could have had several more – a first from Lakefront.

Amber Coloring. Aroma...malt, caramel. A bit bitter, malty. Different. Worth Trying.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Clear dark ruby amber with a thick diminishing off white head. Lightly floral aroma of caramel, dried fruit - apple and orange, and bread with a hint of spice. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. This could be a decent session beer. Flavor of dried fruit - apple, plum and orange, toasted bread, caramel and hints of spice and smoke. Nicely balanced. Good.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 10, 2004
This brew pours with a deep amber/ Red body topped by a meidum thick off-white head with some lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty with a flowery hoppiness, a slight breadiness and a touch of caramel. Nothing special. The flavor is slighlty sweet yet well balanced with bitterness, with a touch of flowery hoppiness and a slight breadiness. Again nothing special. Meidum bodied and smooth.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Good amber/red color,small off white head that managed to have a decent hangtime,and leave a little at the sides.Nice malty semi-sweet aroma with a little fruit and hops.Very nice flavor,light malt with a very decent amount of hops coming through but not over poweringly enough to make it bitter.The fruit is a nice mild grapefruit.This is almost a light version of a pale ale IMO and very drinkable,makes me wish i could get this stuff up here because i could definately go through alot of these this summer.Thanks to Jcapriotti for sending this up to me.
