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.

[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.

Strong caramel flavor and very malty - Light, roasty body, and very smooth. A hint of nuttiness like a brown ale.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2003 This beer is quite malty with a hint of sourness in the flavor. Amber colored beer with nice head. Had a creamy texture and taste to the beer. Could use a bit more flavor than the malt.

Carmel or I guess "rich amber colored", translucent. Sweet malty flavor, very appropriate for the style. Lightly hopped. If Vienna is your style, I think I got a beer for you. Cheers.

Nice amber pour with a thin head. Nuts and malts in the nose and flavor, good balance of hops. Not the best, but an above average beer.

The mexican's like it and so do the gringos. It has a nice after taste, great color, and a nice aroma. Definitely, Wisconsin pride...Go Brewers!

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2003 I have to say that, until this beer, I never really appreciated the Vienna style. That has now changed! A nice medium copper color and fluffy off white head nicely complement and surprisingly hoppy and delicious nose. The flavor is full of malty goodness, and also has some other very nice notes to it. Finish fades away into a nice sweet toastiness. A very nice beer, and probably the best of the style I've ever had!

Very nice clear red amber brew with a moderate bit of carbonation. Poured like a thick syrupy viscosity with no head. Very little lacing as well. But the flavor is very good. Very crisp with a predominatly malty flavor. Slight hint of spearmint as it closes with a smooth lightly bitter finish. Not complex but certainly very drinkable. Would love to drink this beer at a Milwaulkee Brewers game with about 3 hot dogs! That would be the perfect summer day. Thanks CaptainCougar for the local brew!

Thanks to CaptainCougar for this one. People seem to compare this one with Great Lakes' Eliot Ness but it's not exactly a photo finish in my book. Pours a very clear amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is malty and a little nutty. Flavor did not have as much rich malt character as I would have liked, but it is easy to drink. There are enough hops in the finish to keep it interesting. I'd get this again but Mr. Ness is still Untouchable as far as I am concerned.

A lot of people seem to like this beer. I have had it twice, once from a bottle, and once on tap. Neither impressed me. I really cant describe it. I am just not a fan of this beer.
