While not a powerhouse, flavor-wise, this is a decent version of a vienna-style lager. It pours out to a reddish-brown in the glass with light aroma of malt. Taste is that of malt with a light caramel and toffee also present. Not as flavorful as Sam Adams offering and not as good as the Great Lakes Brewing version. However, it is a good beer and worthy of drinking on occasion.

The first beer I have ever opened, sipped for the first time, and exclaimed, "Wow!" Tastes like a very light guinness.

Simple, sweet, straighforward malty goodness in the taste but something like the cheapness of a Killians in the body, as if it were artificially augmented or airbrushed into fullness.

Malty, Malt, Malt, Malt. Could stand to be hopped up a little to even things out. I liked it, but then it was beer what more can I say. Doubt I will buy it again.

Inhale vanilla and maple and then taste them immediately - that’s the lovely legacy of the malt in this reddish brew. There’s not much else going on, but the malts will do enough to make you happy.

The aroma is the best part of this beer. Once you get past the maple and vanilla aromas, all you have left is a rather ordinary heavy beer. This brewery does make a bad beer, and this is close.
