COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This all malt, Vienna-style lager is a real crowd pleaser! Roasted malts and imported hops give it a deliciously smooth malt taste backed by a light hop finish. Perfect for any occasion.

(bottle) Comsumed at the airport in Minneapolis while waiting to connect on a flight back to Houston. This beer was a but weird to me for some reason and I couldnt put my finger on it. There was something off in the malts....too sweet, too bitter in the finish? Something was out of place here....not much in the way of hops here either, just not a pleasant experience.

Murky oarange with much head. Not very much aroma either. Good clean malty character but not much more than that. I think maybe the sample was not in the best shape though.

In the bottle. Copper orange in color. Large bubbles in the head and coating the side of the glass. No lacing. Bitter taste up front. Malt flavor then announces itself, but not loudly. As with most of the Schell beers, this one stops just short of great.

Nice malt and balance with carbonation. Nice copper head. Drinkable, good example of type as not too sweet.

Color is a clear orangey, head is a thick, fluffy white. Aroma is sweet and fresh, with touches of citrus,sea air, and a whiff of caramel, maybe. Palate is smooooth, with a trifly, tumbling texture for the tongue to play over. Very tasty, and sweet, and the malt's really pulling it's weight. Very rich and satisfying, and not as thin in body like others of a similar style. If I can name names, I'd be happy if this one was the default beer everywhere on earth, like Samuel Adams is. It has a firmer body, and is malty, hoppy, malty, hoppy, a beautiful tango, back and forth, the two keeping pace with one another and surprise and delight the palate. Again, a great lager. "All malt Vienna Style Lager" What, are they sneaking something else into their other beers? Do I have to keep an eye on those guys in New Ulm? Nonetheless, Firebrick's a winner.

Roasted caramel sugars, a somewhat burnt edge that maybe contributes to it's sour-ish ending. Lemon and ouzo too? A little hop bitterness mixed in the sweet sticky finish.

Good malty taste, malty aroma, that goes down nice and smooth. pretty good balance but not as good as other of their beers such as the pale ale.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2004
Dark amber with off-white head. Complex aroma of vanilla, licorice, maybe caramel. Some sweetness, honey in the taste but the whole combination just doesn't make it.
