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.

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 (2201) - 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.

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.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2002
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.

NeonLX (261) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2002
(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.
