Draught at Schlafly Brewery. Poured reddish amber with thick head. Aroma slightly malty with some citrus fruits. Taste was similar. Nothing outstanding about this beer, but it is very drinkable, medium bodied, and balanced.

Pours light copper with an off-white head. The aroma is sweet caramel that is very clean with good toast and hazelnut traits. The body is clean, crisp and light with sharp carbonation. The taste is spot on with the aroma along with some spice showing up on the finish. This is quite good for the style.

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.

Tasted 3/29/08. On draft from the Tap Room. Filtered with a deep amber hue. Layer of white head. Mild grainy nose. Rather cold, but better than most places. Fresh! So fresh! Mild to medium bodied with smooth light malts. Tight carbonation. Tight moderately hoppy finish. Good bread flavor. Typical Schlafly house yeast character. Coating. Typically a light O’Fest. Slight sweet vanilla undertone. Slight bitterness. Tasty!

Sampled at the 2013 Heritage Festival. It poured a reddish/amber color with a white head. The aroma was malty with some citrus fruits. The taste was similar, with a medium body and well-balanced. Well done.

Hop in the City '03: Hazy orange. Chewy sticky malt aroma with light pears and sweet honey. Light maltiness on the tongue, while bitterness rules the finish, and it is seemingly from the west coast, good and interesting interpretation.

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.

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 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at Hop in the City 2010. Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of Munich malts, caramel, toast, nuts, and peppery hops. Flavor follows suit for the most part, and the commercial description of a light, malty Oktoberfest is exactly what I’d say about it. Light-medium bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Sessionable.

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!
