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.

bhensonb (10347) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Bottle. Pours amber with a slight white head. Lightly bready aroma. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is roasted caramel, but there is a good amount of grassy bitter to tamp down the sweet. Better than a macro lager.

daknole (8540) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Brought back from Milwaukee by my friend Nick Wight...thanks. Pours a clear golden/amber color with a very small head. Aroma is extremely grainy, crackers. I smell corn meal. Flavor is malty and some corn with some good hop balance. A very interesting and tasty beer. Crisp and clean mouthfeel.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Can @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a clear dark orange appearance with a big, fluffy, cream colored head. Toasted malty, corn, herbal, husky, grainy, fairly bitter cracker aroma. Tangy, bitter woody, grassy, husky, grainy malty flavor. Kind of a rough texture. Tastes like shit to me, but so has everything else tonight, so fuck it.

JoeMcPhee (8189) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2007
500 ml bottle. Deep amber coloured brew. Very fresh vienna malt aroma, bread crust, light toast and a hint of brown sugar/caramel. Clean maltiness. Rich and sweet tasting. A touch of faint smokiness appears toward the finish. Soft hoppiness just keeps this balanced, but I can see how some might find it cloying. I don’t and think it’s an excellent example of the style.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2011
Fresh bottle from the brewery. A little cheesy aroma. Much head that resulted in a small retained head, on light yellow body. Not very drinkable,medium body. A Vienna, just not so tasty.
