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.

Very very nice forthis style. Not as agressively hopped assome of my fave Viennas (riverwest stein, elliot ness) but still incredibly well-balanced. The malt is terrific and never get too cloying because of the just-right hop presence.

(on tap) A very even-tempered brew. Medium copper color with a thinnish head. A very full taste that leans a little to the bitter side. Maybe slightly over-carbonated, but very nice!

Semi-sweet and moderately bitter. Toasted oat aroma and copper colored body. The finish is smooth, but there is nothing too spectacular here.

Maltier than most pilseners, and more flavorful. Thankfully, it hasn’t got the overpowering Saaz aroma of a Victory Prima Pils, which I don’t miss. Excellent stuff!

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2002
Clear golden/amber color with a moderate head. Aroma of mild caramel malt and slight floral hops. Flavors of slightly toasty malt with a touch of fruit - peach and grapefruit. A hoppy Vienna in style. A good session lager.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - SEP 1, 2002
Thickish, chunky head with some lacing tops a medium-amber translucent liquid that smells very much of caramel malt and some faint hoppiness. Flavor decent but unremarkable, with a thin body and lingering sourness that I found rather unpleasant. Have to say I’m finding this brewer rather a disappointment; but maybe Lakefront, New Glarus and Capital have just spoiled me on Wiscosin brews.

Not as good as I want it to be. I have huge memories of how good Sprecher was when I lived in Wisconsin and in the last three months or so, since they finally cracked the tough export to Michigan problem, my memory has been upstaged by the general weakness of the brews. Oh they’re decent enough, and this one has a fair breath of hops to go with its maltiness, but the tastes are generally muddy and the bodies thin.
