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 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.

16 oz bottle served at the miller time pub (milwaukee, wi). Decided to go for this after I didnít partake in it after the tour. Pours a very nice slightly hazed amber with a big puffy offwhite head that laces. Aromas are nice light carmel malts balanced with decent florals and citrus with a touch of gumball sweetness. Initial is light bodied, a touch toasted cereal, carmel, amd toffee balanced with a light bitterness and subtle inviting citrus. Finishes nicely, light malty sweetness finishes and is pretty good.

Murky, medium orange pour with a slight white head. Bit of a worty aroma, some molasses. Flavor has some raisins, molasses, a bit of caramel, good rib sticking flavor. Sticky mouthfeel....leaning to the cloying side near the end though. Thanks to Aurelius for saving this out of his beer of the month club

Sprecherís 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.

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.

Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma has nice toasty maltiness, some bread, caramel notes, a bit of nuts, light grainy hints, and some slightly floral hops. Sweetish malty flavor with some caramel and a bit of toasted bread, finishes moderately bitter with some hops, somewhat floral/herbal. Medium-bodied. A nice quaffable Lager.

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.

Suttree (4905) - 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.

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.
