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.

Slightly hazy dark amber colour with a very dense off-white creamy head. Smells of hops, a bit of sourness, malt and even a slight sweetness. Medium-bodied; Spicey character and taste with a bit of the malt showing through, but hardly any of the hops. Aftertaste fairly bland but pleasing. No really bittering characteristics on the aftertaste at all. Overall, a decent beer...I don't think this is a Vienna...but whatever. I'm very lucky to get a bottle of this...thanks go out to CaptainCougar for sending me the twelve ounce bottle! Thanks Tom :-)

Very creamy flavor and beautiful color – a must-drink Milwaukee brew. Another great beer from a great brewery.

So my best friend and I have made a Saturday tradition out of going down to Lakefront Brewery (as it is about a mile from my house), and doing the “Brewery Tour.” For those of you who have taken the tour, you know it consists of buying a LF Brewery Pint glass with 4 chips for free beers in it. Well, my friend Jen and I have never really seen any point in taking the actual tour (we’ll occasionally sneak downstairs to where there second taper is and refill our cups for free), as we end up getting (at least) 5 beers (4 there and one at either Nomad or Walski’s) for $5. What a great city.

Damn this is good lager!! Sweet, rich malts aplenty and a perfect little cascade hops balancer at the finish. So clean and thirst quenching, I would find it hard to believe that any beer drinker would have anything bad to say about it. Hints of peaty smokiness and earthy notes linger after each sip.

Please note that the web address is incorrect. It should be lakefrontbrewery.com (no dash). Please update your info for this brewery.

(draft): Clear copper body with small beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, peach, light caramel, toasty. Moderately sweet, peach, light caramel, no bitterness, minimal finish. Medium/full body, creamy, slightly syrupy. Quite nice for what it is.

Very drinkable - smooth tasting Vienna. Clean clear malty aroma - bit of a sugary sweetness to it. Little to no head - but what is there leaves a soapy foamy trailing lace. Flavor is somewhat nutty and I detect caramel as well. Overall, a good Vienna and am looking forward to finding more from this brewer which is not available too much in Florida.

Good malt and slight vanilla lager aroma. Darkish chestnut brown, decent label. Very fruity and well-balanced. Tangy finish. Don't know that this is a 95-percentile beer, but it's pretty good.

This is a very nice beer, I was very happy to say the least about this one. Color is a pale coppery caramel brown, very thin head and faded leaving no lace and none appeared as it was consumed. Smells of sweet malt and slight musty bread. Smooth yummy taste of sweet caramel malt and has some breadish notes. Nice solid flavor and very super smooth, oh how easy and scrumptious this is, wow! The feel is quite nice, again, its so smooth with one really nice, full buttery body, yum. Drinkable in many regards, one very delicious amber.

[draught] I had no idea this was a vienna at all, and never would have guessed it either. It's character is much more like a bock. Sweet aroma, caramel and cloves - rusty brown/burnt orange color - the flavor is very full, with caramel, nuts and slight chocolate notes - the finish is smooth, though bitter at times, but this is still a great beer.
