COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Pours a dark gold, almost amber, with a small white head of very small bubbles. Floral hop aromas accompanied by some malts. Big flavors here. Malt, almost a caramel flavor. The hops make themselves known at the finish. Not too bad at all.

Looks like a vienna. Amber color with a moderate dark cream colored head. Bottle indicates best by end of August, I hope it was 2003. By the aroma I'm not sure. Caramel malt and cerery aroma. Flavors are slightly off. Malt and honey flavors with an acerbic undertone. Some real off flavors. I know this has come up in the forum "should you rate a dated beer?" I have been remiss in replying, let me state here - Hell Yes! Let the brewer/distributor know there is dated beer on the shelf and someone may find it, drink it and let others know it is not a good beer. Maybe it is a great beer fresh, but if the distributor and store does not care, it can reflect badly on the brewer. My $0.02. Will rerate next time I ski at Jackson Hole.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2003 A 36 oz. rating (I had 3 of these in a row). Bright copper body, moderate carbonation, and velvety white head. Aroma of malt, a hint of apples, and something briny and organic like sea salt. Caramel candy flavor but not overly sweet. A small amount of yeast sediment stewards this delicate brew. Subtle, delicious, and smoother than Sam Perkins. Terrific with a bowl of littleneck steamers.

Kind of a funny taste. Not so bad after a couple of sips. You could do worse.

Gold color. Fairly hoppy for the style and a bit thin in the body. Nothing special.

Dayton, OH AleFest:This beer had a small sized ivory head with fine-small bubbles that was mostly lasting.It had a clear body along with some lively carbonation.The hue was orange and the nose was malty and hoppy.This beer's flavor was sweet and bitter tasting.The mouthfeel was smooth, thin and somewhat watery.This beer left excellent lacing on the sides of my glass.

thedm (4928) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 24, 2003
This brew poured a small head of mostly lasting white bubbles that left behind a good lacing and a transparent orange colored softly carbonated body. It has a smooth mouthfeel, a mild malt hop aroma and flavor.

Delicious! Tasty, but smooth drinking lager from a remarkable small town brewery.

Excellent malty character in true vienna lager style. Color was a bit light and slightly cloudy but that's not any big deal. I'm just nitpicking...it could be prettier is all.

Yes sir, I liked it. I liked it a whole bunch. Color of amber but with a nice hazy brown tint along with a nice, off-white head that was pretty thick and frothy. Smell is lightly hinted but so good and fresh. Had a nice caramel malt and hop presence, it was soft on the nose and very pleasing. Sip, slurp, ahhhh. So good, great medium body feel and tight with flavor. Smooth toasty malt with just the right touch of hop bitterness, but the malt is left to really stand out. Everything comes together so nicely. The finish is a touch sweet, very nicely done. Toasty fresh, robust,and flavorful, packed nicely with a 6% punch. This is one awesome Vienna style beer, one of the best I've ever had the pleasure of drinking. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Highly recommend picking some up if ever in Jackson Hole,Wyoming.
