Editor's note: A recipe formerly brewed by Independence Brewing in Philadelphia (defunct since 2000), and ressurrected for the 300. anniversary of Benjamin Franklin's birth by Lancaster Brewing Company.

On tap. Poured a deeper orange color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of bread, citrus, and caramel. Tastes follow suit with a light fruitiness. Thinner body.

Cruzan59 (197) - Lititz, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Draft at LBC...pours a reddish-amber with no head...smell was mild, grainy, metallic, a bit grassy...taste was fresh with a bit of hop and some clove in the background...a decent brew...a change from my norm.

titled Fest beer at the brew pub, a very standard vienna, not bad at all. It’s pretty tasty! An amber color, more on the malty side than the hoppy side, this would be a nice fall beer.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 26, 2007
Tap @ LBC - Dark amber, thin white head. Nose held soft notes of toasted caramel and grains, with just a slight hint of citrus. Lightly sweet malt and soft citric flavors found throughout. Light bodied, soft carbonation, light bittersweet finish. Chuggable I guess...

Ungstrup (34653) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2007
Draft at the brewpub, July 2006. An orange golden beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of malt, and hints of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of hops and citrus, leading to a slighlty bitter end. The mouthfeel is very smooth.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 18, 2006
On tap at the brew pub. Pours a translucent copper/orange with a smaller creamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of orange, sweet malts, some caramel, more fruity than I was expecting from a lager. Flavor I was also picking up the citrus, some metallic, smooth, creamy and refreshing, crisp malt sweetness.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Amber color - slightly tan and small head - typcial "lagerish" aroma with just a hint of citrus. Flavor is malty with notes of vanilla - rather sweet and clean. Like others have said - maybe a decent session beer but nothing outstanding.

Tap@Philly Airport "Brewpub". No nose. Amber, creamy, offwhite head. Ok malty base, light fruity notes. Hayish, uninspiring.
