COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bright golden color, well rounded flavor and exceptional drinkability characterize this very refreshing ale. A delicate balance between pale malts and Hallertauer hops creates a very palatable, light, fruity ale. A great entry level beer for newcomers to fine hand-crafted ales.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Warehouse Liquors in Duluth, Minnesota. Pours a clear light copper amber brew with a thin off-white head that slowly dissipates to a white ring. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, some lemon citrus zest, roasted nuts and a touch of cardboard. Taste is medium bodied, some caramel malt and lemon skin. Finish is slightly dry, metallic with a slight acidic vinegar finish which may be an old bottle.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2007
12oz one of the last of the multipack that I was not looking forward to. Orange/red color with small white/off-white head. Slight aroma of malt. Flavor was not pleasing but it may just because I’m coming off of Bam Biere, after I get used to it a bit I taste some doughy malt and doughiness, grain and some bittering hops. Creamy med body. After I get used to it, it isn’t all that bad, surprisingly one of the better ones from this brewery.

Dogfish120 (143) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2007
On draft: Thin white head dissipating quickly, nice lacing throughout. Distinguished nutty and toasty notes with a sweet fruity nose. Sweetness of fruit and honey, dry hoppy nose and nice dry finish. A decent brew.

jtw (1115) - farmington, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2007
a true-to-description amber color of moderate carbonation and head. aroma of caramel and toast, along with a slightly industrial ’lager yeast’ element. smoother and sweeter than the aroma suggests - surprisingly so! lingering sweetness of honey and brown sugar and the hops are noticeable only when you realize that without them, this would be like drinking brown kool-aid. better than i expected, and better than some of their other brews.

BigBeer45 (1273) - Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Bottle, poured a amber gold, sweet malt and some caramel fragrances, faint hop bouquet aroma, taste of malt and dark malt, little sweetness with a small hop bite on the palate, there is a lager taste to this beer, it is faint though, very easy drinking stuff.

this is a very well rounded Vienna and the use of Hallertauer is not only apparent but very nicely done but the malt seems to disappear completely
