In general Iím not a big Rogue fan, but this stuff is special - big toasty malts, silk in the mouth, a bitter nuttiness on close. Yum.

My bottle was out dated. Beer was very unusually cloudy and unfiltered? Stale beer sucks. I think this is a limited edition forum, therefore I will not have anything to compare it to.

big malt front, and a very crisp clean lager taste that is very appealing. Adequate hops, and a top notch Lager in my book.

amber colour, strong malt aroma like a bock beer, caramel, sweet - excellent

Malt upfront in the nose. Veinna and Crystal malts show through. The bottle says they used Saaz, but I really donít detect any in the aroma, although it may be very slight. The bottle has some yeast haze, which Rogue tends to have if you are not careful pouring. Nice color, amber to copper in color. Toasteness from the malts is nice. I like Vienna malts! Bitterness is in the background. There is some yeasty flavor, due to how the beer was poured. Nice creaminess in the mouth feel. Not over carbonated like some Vienna beers. I like this beer much better than the south of the boarder Vienna beers like Dos Equies, and Niegra Modelo. This is one the better versions of the style. This beer almost boardes an Octoberfest/Marzen. I would like to see an OG on the bottle. Since Rogue is good about that.

An excellent example of the Vienna style.
