10/10/13 the LAST bottle of the 8 pack bought for the Poconos 2 weeks ago and my favorite out of the pack. Dark amber color with a very thin head. Aroma is lots of malt and caramel. Flavor is a little sweet almost octoberfest like. Good beer

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. (Lakefront Brewery) Milwaukee, WI.
Clear copper colour with a small off-white head.
Mild sweet toffee, malt and banana in the aroma.
The flavour is quite easy but there’s nothing wrong with it. Dryish malt, banana sweetness and mild hoppy bitterness. I don’t know what the banana is doing here. Drinkable, forgettable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2015 12 oz bottle Another beer tasted at a Packer game tailgate. The lager poured a deep copper color with a beige head. The aroma was of caramel malts. This lager had a rich taste of caramel and peach. The medium body lager had average carbonation. This was one of the best beers tasted at the tailgate. The finish was smooth with no bitterness.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks zvikar. Clear amber. Weak aroma with malt, a bit of caramel, some oxidation and something weird. Sweetish flavor with a bit of malt and caramel, honey-ish oxidation notes and a drier finish with faint bitterness. Rather light-bodied.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A dark amber color with a head that lasts well after the initial pour. A very malty taste, yet a relatively clean finish.
