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.

Fluffy, bubbly head. Deep red-orange. So many bubbles they obscure the other side of the glass. Good head retention, tremendous sheet of lace. Bittersweet amber malt aroma; rich malt with a fitting flowery hop. Nice earthy aroma. Strong butterscotch taste at first; rich toffee malt, sweet but dark. Nutty hazelnut, mocha, cocoa, toasted nuts, vanilla bean and light brown sugar. The hops are but an accent. Feels silky smooth like chocolate milk. This is probably the best that Lakefront has to offer that I’ve had so far. Rich, smooth & nutty.

Delicious vienna style lager. Round and complex vienna malt character on tap. Bottles are more crisp and possibly a bit drier. I miss drinking this on tap in Riverwest.

A dark amber color with a head that lasts well after the initial pour. A very malty taste, yet a relatively clean finish.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Appearance: pours a thin off white head that recedes leaving some light lacing. Color is a rich, cloudy amber with abundant streaming carbonation. Aroma: sweet caramel, bread dough, a hint of pine and citrus Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, frothy, with a quite dry finish. Flavor: caramel, butterscotch, raisins, toasted bread, with some herbal and citrus rind hops in the finish. Overall: very well done and enjoyable. Should pair well with many foods.

IMHO there is a big difference between amber ales and amber lagers, and I much prefer the latter. Riverwest Stein is a great example. Amber in color, malty and mouthy, but refreshing at the same time. Ales with a similar maltiness tend to be too sweet and less refreshing... must be something about the lagering.

On tap. Pours a nice rich creamy head. Coppery color accents the malty aroma. Sweet taste on the first sip, then a rush of hops. Milwaukee’s best Vienna style lager.

This is a great everyday beer for me. It has a Sweeter aftertaste that leaves the palate refreshed and wanting more. More of a summer beer as it is not an IPA or a Stout that I usually drink. Living in Milwaukee it I love drinking local beers and this is one of my instant go to beers.

This was really pleasing. Lagers in a general sense have lost their appeal for me as of late, so this was a nice surprise. The aroma had a malty spiciness that had me anticipating what was next. Brown cloudy color with a two-finger head of foam. I know Marzens can fall into this category but this beer did not remind me of that. The unique malt flavor almost seemed to have a clove presence. I wish I had bought more of this.

a little bit of a bitter taste at the end but overall an excellent beer. I will definately be getting this again.
