Great Vienna, such a lost style. This beer has balance in flavor, aroma, body and drinkability. This is the best reason for going to the mall that I have ever come across. This beer has the balance of drinkability and body that so many microbrews lack in todays market.

This is a very refreshing beer, probably the best of its style. One of the most flavorful lagers youre likely to find with a very nice toffee finish.

I had this on tap and itís a fairly good vienna, light and smooth but still fairly flavourful. Itís light brownish amber with a decent off-white head. It has caramel with a llittle yeasty bread dough, faint earthiness, lightly sweet with a little hop flavour and bitterness, making it more interesting than many of the style.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2008
My favorite of their brews. Amber colored brew. Aromas of caramel malts, bread, toast. Mildly sweet up front with toasty sweet bread and a nice crisp bitterness in the finish. Flavorful, yet light. This one was well made.

Tap at the brewpub. Amber with a nice lasting creamy head. Mild aroma is toasted nut and caramel. Taste is the same with a crisp, toasty finish. Near-medium body is well balanced, has medium carbonation and is an easy drinker.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours amber with a modest off-white head and a smoky aroma. There is a thin caramel malt flavor with slight hop bitterness. A bit soapy.

Sampler @ River City -

Really a nice, easy to drink lager with just enough toasted malt character to notice. Body is amber in color, crystal clear with an off-white fluffy head. Aroma is mostly clean with a hint of roasted malts and bread. Flavor matches the aroma profile blow for blow. Finishes really clean with just a hint of lingering sweetness. Very nice.

Draft. Amber beer with an off-white head. Earthy/grassy hops with a good caramel malt backing. Low aroma. Great balance. Lingering hop flavor mixed with a bit of sweetness.

Tap at the California State Fair -aka amber. Pours amber with a little head. Smells of light caramel. Body is near medium; carbonation is minimal. Flavor is light caramel, and it finishes with a touch of bitter.
