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.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 29, 2006
An unclear orange beer with no head. The aroma is quite light, but what is there is sweet and acidic, with light notes of caramel. The flavor is also a combination of sweetness and light acidity, combined with notes of hops. Nothing special.

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Mild caramel aroma. Amber color. White head. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is a balance of caramel and resiny hop. A rather hoppy Vienna. The finish is reasonably dry, with a decent amount of bitter. Lager or ale? Hard to tell. If you know, send me a message! Or should I trust the label? A damn decent lager. If AB adopted this recipe, profits would go down, but America would rule.
