Thanks Kyzr for the bottle. Golden orange color. Very thin white head. Definite grassy and spicy aroma with some fruity malt sweetness too. Maybe its apples? Toasted caramel malts, some sweetness and an awesome earthy crisp finish. Has a cider like quality to it too. A tasty beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 12, 2004
Deep bronze color, light caramel color, light head and lacing. The aroma is lightly hoppy. The body is light and easy to drink, definately a lager but with some great malty tastes, caramel and very earthy. Good vienna!

Cornfield (5460) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Good looking pour, a bright orange body with a creamy three-fingered head. The aroma is a rich caramel with toffee and a smattering of herbal hops bitterness. Smooth to drink, the caramel dominates the flavor with the hops balancing it out in the finish. Very drinkable.

This Vienna pours an amber gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, caramel and orange. A medium bodied Vienna. Malts are caramel and sweet. Hops are slightly citrusy. Slightly spritzy carbonation. Very drinkable lager. Crisp and clean. Nice malty finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle courtesy of James at his November 2012 tasting. Pours an amber body with light lacing. Aroma is soft malts and grain. Mouthfeel is light with notes of sweet malts, light wheat, very soft bitter hop and grain. Not bad.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Sampled on draught at the brewpub in Jackson, Wyoming. Pours a clear golden amber brew with a thick creamy off-white head with a good lacing. Aroma is very thin and almost absent. Could just pick up a hint of light bread, vegerable and herbal/flowery hops. Taste is light, fruity, little carbonation, with a good balance of hop bitterness and malt sweetness. Finish is light, smooth, crisp, clean cut with no bitter aftertaste.

Bottle ordered from the brewery as part of a mixed 12-pack. Served in a pilsner glass. Pours brings a copper-red brew that is mostly transparent with some visible carbonation. Thin white head without too much retention power. Some spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. The nose brings forward a brew with a bit of oxidation along with some light amber malt and bread crust. The flavor falls along the same lines. There is some doughy malt sweetness and a hint of toffee. Very mild earthy hop presence lingering in the background. Medium body with okay carbonation and a bit of an off finish. Drinks decently enough, though I’m not a huge fan. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-04-2011

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.

thedm (4927) - 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.

A good beer with a great flavor. I felt this needed more flavor and maybe more time with the hops. Lagers are tough to brew So I understand the hard work.
