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.

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.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2007 Brillant beer. I can not decide between this and Great Lakes Elliot Ness as to which is the best Vienna. Luxurious amber color that reminds you of a great whiskey. Full malt/yeast feel that leaves you feeling very satisfied. Goes great with pizza.

The caramel malt was very apparent. Almost overdone. This is a very ’sticky’sweet beer. Not a lot of hops. I prefer more, but this is a good lakefront beer.

Full malty and hoppy. The best of both worlds. Very well balanced and incredibly smooth. I agree that this is Lakefront’s best.

Murky amber color with a thin but persistent off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt and almonds. Flavors of chocolate toffee and a slight astringent finish. No hop feel that I could detect.

Great malty aroma, roasty caramel flavors, smooth and easy to enjoy. Great clean, hop-balanced finish.

Lively Vienna/Marzen, beutiful amber with amazing clarity. Flavor is a superb malt-hops balance (malt almost flawless). Good stuff-reminsicent of Victory Fest-Dominion Octoberfest.

(Bottled First Week Of September) These lakefront beers have great clarity. Nice malty nose, it is like I stuck my head into a bag of grain. Sweet, but not too sticky. I like it but I find it hard to categorize.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2003 Bright glowing amber in color, nice frothy head that cling to my glass. Light caremel malty aroma, flavors of sweet caramel, very balanced, smooth clean finish, great for the vienna style, great session brew.
