Reddish-orange-amber with sweet biscuit nose... cookies with notes of orange zest. Moderately sweet malty taste, lightly bitter, with that zesty note. Could be drier and a touch hoppier, but it gets the point across.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a crystal clear light copper with a thin off-white head. The nose is a muted but pleasant bready malt with a light floral hop note in support. The palate is light+bodied and thin with a moderately dry finish. The flavor is of slightly sweet, bready malt ending with a light touch of bittering hops. A nice example of the style.

Maltier than I expected sweet taste balanced with alot of hops. I’m not sure if this is a light Oktoberfest style, very malty.I love this beer.

Aroma is slightly hoppy, sweet malty.
Pours a dark honey brown color with nice lacing.
Taste is slightly sweet, malty, very small touch of hops.
Very solid for the style.

Somewhat lacking in personality. Typical american interpritation where the hop dominates.

Pours a clear amber with spare head and little lacing. Aromas of caramel malt heavy, with some light, flower hops. Medium bodied with sticky mouthfeel. Average carbonation. Moderately sweet and lightly acidic. I enjoyed this one!

No substance or style. Nothing like Great Lakes’ excellant Eliot Ness. This one is just dull.

Clear and amber with a pretty good head and lacing. Sweet and richly malty, with a touch of fruit and some bready notes. Hop balance was nice. Body was light and extremely drinkable. I don’t remember the ABV but I think it was light and highly sessionable. A great beer for lunch at the taproom!

Reddish amber in color, with a good sized, short-lived head. My first Vienna style beer. Sweet and fruity on the nose and slightly bitter, yet crisp, on the finish.
