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.

Draft at Axel,s MSP airport. Pourd clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Medium sweet toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture with soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Another average beer.

The Firebrick is a brown appearing lager.The aroma is quite malty, and somewhat citrusy as well. This aroma is muted, however, when sipping the beer. Iím having trouble getting a good taste of it. Itís strange; Iím just not getting much out of this beer.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2010 Iím not sure if I liked this one or not. From New Ulm, which is a good brewery. Was in a sampler pack, and I think this was my least favorite.

Hazy reddish pour with white head. Aroma has notes of some roasted malt, touch of bread and fruit. Taste is some bready fruit, and a touch of caramel. Average, weak flavors, and not that many of them.

Dark amber pour with a fizzy head. Light aroma of stale hops and corny malt. Flavor is sorta like not so great. Meh.

Festival Tap: They should look to their Cheesehead neighbors for help on this Vienna. So much thinner and lighter in flavor than examples from Lakefront & Capital. Nothing bad about the beer, it was light amber with hints of sweetness and some bitterness at the finish.

Bottled. I belive this was my first beer in this style, back when I visited the Schell Brewery a few year ago. It seemed very likable then, though there are few faults when I try it now. There is a good Vienna malt smell. It pours a nice red with little to no head. Taste is rich and malty, but has the phenolic tang of peated malts. So a bit off, but thatís the risk in this style. Definitely worth looking up if you get a chance.

shaker / eww, stinky aroma. i donít care to sniff it out anymore. okay... fizzy pour. bah. stinky. caramel? forget it. perhaps itís a bad bottle because the score is currently 3.24 yet i hardly believe it. basically, this brew tastes like sweaty flowers dipped in caramel. it prickles, and leaves a strange aftertaste. meh.

Very basic lager. While a Vienna is the Rolls-Royce of lagers, it never impresses me. A rich marzen is much better. Not a beer Iíd buy.
