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.

The colour seems true to its name. Sweet aroma, very smooth and clean taste. Sometimes avialable on Nothwest Airlines.

This a very nice representation of a Vienna style and at a nice price to boot. Head fades somewhat fast(perhaps my glass?) malt aroma is very evident after pour. Color is copper and very clear. Although there was some residual yeast in the bottle. Nice hops flavor that is not at all obtrusive to the malt. Caramel notes are present and linger in the finish. Nice job !

This vienna pours cloudy and has a prune color. The aroma is malty and the flavor is sweet and malty. I could not detect any smoke or fire flavor as the label may lead you to believe. The body is thin and smooth. Not bad.

Nice amber pour with thin off-white head. Lightly roasted malt and toffee aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt with just the slightest hint of hop. It’s not great, it’s not terrible, just rather average.

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.

Pours deep gold/amber. Nose is malt and dark fruit (sweet). 1 finger head quickly leaves a heavy lace. Taste is malt. Not much sweetness, finish is silky smooth. Very interesting beer. Taste is complex but so so subtle. Moutfeel is warm and slightly dry. This beer could be easily drank by non-craft beer drinkers. For the price I will start keeping some in my fridge.

Bottle poured to a pint glass. Poured very orangish color in bright lighting. Very mild grapefruity hop aroma. Overall not to bad.

mothman (120) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Poured into Sam Adams Sensory Glass. Color is a golden bronze. The beer looks dark, but you can see right through it. Pours a light tan head that leaves great lacing. Smell is very malty. Roasted malts with hints of carmel. Taste is of roasted nuts and the same hint of carmel. The taste is mainly malty, but there are some slight earthy hops present. Mouthfeel is very rich and creamy. The beer goes down with a slight bitter aftertaste. Overall this beer is easy to drink and could be a wonderful session beer. It is a great beer, however the taste becomes more and more of a typical lager after a while, and I am more of a fan of ales. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-02-2009 21:00:41

Clear read amber color. Small diminishing head. Sweet malty flavor with a late aftertaste that is mildy soapy.
