COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delicate balance of toasted malt and fresh hops give this medium-bodied German style lager an intriguing complex flavor. A creamy head, deep golden color and an impressive hop bouquet make this a very special beer.

This brew poured a large head of fine to medium sized white bubbles and a lively transparent amber body. It had a malt hop aroma and a mild bitter hop start and finish.

fraternie (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 19, 2003
Thin, headless body. Strong aroma, malty and hoppy. Malt body contains light notes of caramel, refreshing and easy drinking. Bitter somewhat metallic finish, hoppier than most of this style.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 13, 2003
Golden amber color with a nice head. This beer was moderately malty with slight sweetness in the taste. Nice aroma.

duece (103) - Waterford, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2003
Color and head both nice for the style but other than that a dissappointing drink. Strong sweet yeast aroma and wheat flavor that leaves your mouth feeling drier than before your first sip.

redlem (1296) - Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2006 Clear amber gold color with a medium frothy white head. Soapy aroma. Not much flavor and very dry. Blah. Re-rate. Not as bad as I remember, probably store issues, still not a 90 like the BTI score on the shelf proclaimed. A little light for a vienna in taste and palate but still a drinkable beer. A touch overcarbed.

ElGaucho (2161) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2003
Having recently been to Germany, I immediately recognized this brew's German styling. Faint notes of smoked stone in the aroma, which really don't come out much in the palate...a good thing. Nice carbonation with thin, brownish orange color. Clear, off-white head. Good lace. Nice moderately malty amber; not too malty. Nice German flavor. A good overall brew, though I am a little surprised it made it as high as the 80th percentile.

WabashMan (1007) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2003
A nice orange color and thick creamy head begin this one. The flavor is nice, neither overpowering nor weak, and has a nice hoppy aftertaste. This beer is good, though a better aroma would improve the experience and take this beer to the next level.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JAN 24, 2003
Huge malty Vienna with a great bitter finish. The worst that can be said is that the flavors lack integration, but the flavor is so big and the finish so long, I hate to nitpick here. Excellent. Big thanks to Howie.

Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2003
Very malty, and well balanced. Haven’t had one quite like it, however it’s quite good. The hops and malts make a nice play together for an interesting beer.

Light malty aroma, nicely roasted. Quite hoppy but adequately balanced.
