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.

arminjewell (9210) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Pours clear reddish orange with nice lacing white head. Aroma of some pine, metallic, caramel and some nutty. Taste is some pine up front, caramel, grain, and biscuit sweet, and a clean slightly bitter finish. Not bad.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2007
12 oz bottle. Deep amber colour, chreamy tan head. Lovely deep malty aroma, toasted malt and soft sweet caramel. Quite clean smelling and very fresh. Moderate/light bitterness but just enough to balance the chewy sweetness. Very nice vienna.

3fourths (8984) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2010
rerate. caramel orange/red colored body. nose is highly fruity (esters are high) for the style and slightly phenolic as well. rich, creamy, mildly sweet, medium chewiness in the finish. could benefit from more dryness as it would reduce the chewy/full/rounded feeling in the finish, but overall it’s mild and tends to the sweet side (low hop flavor and bitterness) with basic munich/two-row/car-pils. if I had to guess I’d say american-made german bock style, the fruity esters and phenols being out of place in proper german-made lager. my notes from 2003 seem to be more positive but that’s too long ago to have any faith in understanding where my palate was at.

Bottle. Medium amber with a light golden head. Aroma is lightly toasty caramel. Flavour is the same, with a metallic bitterness in the finish that I didn’t dig.

alexsdad06 (8254) - Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small disappearing off white head. The aroma is sweeter caramel malt, herbal hops, and some nuttiness. The flavor is sweet caramel malt, toasted bread, and a touch of spices. Medium mouthfeel and very smooth drinking. I like this one more than I thought I would.
