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.

(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) clear amber pour with fine tan bubbles. Nose of sweet grain, toffee, a bit of trash, banana laffy taffy and peel, plus alcohol. Taste of old stale grain, banana, bit spicy, clove, and stale linger.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Bottle and draft. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Chewy caramel notes, butter scotch, lighter liquid nuttiness and a caramel earthy bitter finish. Eh.

16 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head that disappears quickly. The aroma is medium caramel malts and faint hoppiness. The flavor is caramel malts, light roasted character, faint earthy hops, and light fruitiness. Medium light body. Not bad, just not exiting.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Good looking beer, pouring a bright orange body with a large spongey head. The aroma has caramel, vanilla, and quiet floral scents. In flavor it’s quite bready and has a drop of honey, a splash of caramel syrup, and a mild floral/herbal bitterness to balance it out. Quite quaffable.

Note: The current beer picture is a BAd one, having "RateBeer" splashed across the bottle, worthy of some anal retentive beer rating site. Are folk really so worried that their beer photos will be stolen without credit that they have to present an unclear picture? If so, let someone else add them, please.

This Vienna pours a golden amber color from a 16oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel malts and floral hops. A medium bodied Vienna. Malts are caramel sweet with a touch of malt roastyness. Hops are floral and a touch earthy. Nice balance. Smooth taste. Very decent Vienna. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Sprecher’s oldest style of beer. Pours a clear golden amber with a medium thick white head. Aroma of smoked barley malt and nuts. Taste of sweet bread, walnuts and good mix of hops. A little yeast aftertaste and then a clean finish. A good brew.

Suttree (5149) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Amberish orange, smooth dense head. Bubbly carbonation. Smells bready, toasty, and slightly peppery. Mostly malty flavor - bready, touch of caramel. Maybe a little bit of a peppery finish. Pretty run of the mill.

The first smell that hit me was surprising, as it was largely hops. Then a little malt. Starts out smooth and gets a little more bitter and interesting as you go through it. The hops come out and have some grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel. It does look orange!!Slightly below par for Sprecher, but still fairly good.

Amber pour with creamy off white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Sweet caramel malt with a very subtle floral bitter hop finish. Good carbonation on a medium bodied beer. A bit of a metallic finish.

Bottle@Home. Dough and orange aroma with hints of caramel. Hazy, amber color, beige head, few lace. Orange, dough and bitter flavor. Buttery feeling, light dry finish. Not very special, not refreshing.
