COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An amber lager style that has all but disappeared over the last century. This soft, delicate beer has a touch more of a sweet finish than Helles. With a slightly higher alcohol level of 5%, this lager is still very drinkable. A subtle hop finish rounds out this delicious lager.

mansquito (3578) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Trapp Lodge: Pours a golden color with a white head (looks kind of similar to a German style Marzen as opposed to an American one). Aroma is light caramel malts. Taste is much the same. This is an easy downer and could easily be consumed in great quantities. Light hops are there as well, but considering them is almost an after thought. This is a proper session beer. Crisp and refreshing.

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel malt. Flavor of sweet caramel malt and crackery malt, similar to the helles but sweeter. The best of the bunch offered at Trapp Family Lodge (out of the helles, baltic porter, and dunkel) but that’s not saying much... 6/4/6/3/13 [3.2/5]

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2012
On tap at the brewpub in Stowe, VT. Pours a crystal clear golden colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a solid lacing throughout. Aroma is on the lighter side, but there is a very soft maltiness with a touch of sweetness. Bready, a hint of caramel, a touch of lager yeast, and a very light hopping. Flavor is similar. Very soft, bready malts with just a touch of caramel sweetness up front. A light lager yeast note with a touch of fruit in the middle and a bit of grain. A balancing, light herbal grassy bitterness comes on in the finish as this dries nicely before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Very soft, gentle, medium body with a very soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, not a bad Vienna. The flavor isn’t anything special, but it drinks really nicely. Very soft with a great clean, dry finish.

alobar (2882) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Expected a much darker color, but it pours a straw yellow color with a white head. Aroma of caramel, hops, and toasted malts. Good flavor and well-balanced with caramel and toasted malt as well as a good hop ending. Good beer.

On tap at brewery. Pours clear amber with a tight white head. Aroma was toasty with grains, faint caramel and bread. Flavor was malty and toasty with light caramel, grains, bread, and a touch of honey with a smooth clean finish.

Drank on tap (12 oz) at Benelux Brasserie Artisanale in Montreal, on June 11, 2011.Misty blonde, thin head. Aroma of dry barley, hop herbs. Barley taste slightly sweet, well hopped, nice little bitterness. very nice, good drinking!

johnnnniee (2462) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 15, 2014
On tap at Granite State on tap. Lightly hazy deep golden color with a minimal head. Earthy bready pilsner with hints of fruit an floral spicy hops. Nice brew that I returned to a couple of times, but to be world glass it needs to clean up some rough edges.

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Draft at source. Rich amber color with a thin head of foam. Grainy, sweet malt with touches of honey and stale grass. Round caramel notes and a refreshing bitterness to clean up the finish. Not bad.

Le miel oxydé suinte de partout, ca semble être une concotion trop verte. Finale mouillée, peu de rafinement.
