super malty aroma, with the ever-so-slight cascadelike tang hidden in there. damn! suprising take on the style. very hoppy for a vienna, but i think i like it. sublime malt backbone with a dry clean finish. awesome balance, hardly cloying despite all the malt. probably the best vienna i’ve had.

12oz brown bottle from The Lighthouse in Manchester as part of this brewery’s sampler 8-pack. Pours a dark amber with a good half inch or so of off-white head. Smells bready with a fair bit of caramel. Tastes biscuity with strong caramel and chocolate. Medium in body with moderate carbonation. Actually a pretty tasty beer, and pretty damn drinkable. One of this brewery’s better offerings IMO.

On tap. An excellent lager. Pours a lovely dark copper color with about a finger of foam. Taste is of caramel malts followed by a pleasant hop finish. Definitely one of the better lagers I’ve had.

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.

Pours a clear amber color with a decent head that leaves some lacing. Scent is very heavy with malts as to be expected from the label on the bottle reading "All Malt." Has a really good taste to it that is very well mixed. Very malty but also has some nut hints and sweet caramel. Leaves a good after taste. A very tasty and well made Red Lager.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2008 Clear amber-orange color and moderate head. Aroma of caramel, malt and Granny Smith apples. Medium sweet, toasty and a llittle floral hoppiness with more of the hint of apple and some apricot notes. Smooth lingering finish. I was quite surprised by how much I like this.

I like this beer a lot. It has a nice amber color with a good aroma. The flavor is nicely balanced without being too hoppy or malty. It is a good step up from pale lagers: Great flavor without being overpowering. Good anytime of year.
