COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award winning Amber is brewed in the Vienna Style with a blend of Vienna malt, Munich malt, and Pilsner malt. This traditional lager is medium bodied, showcasing a slight toasty aroma, and perfectly layered with delicate malt flavors. By using choice German Noble hops it drinks with a well-balanced and session-able finish. The beauty of this brew is it’s clean, savory taste that is matched only by its vibrant amber color.

12 oz. bottle. Amber pour with medium off white head. Aroma of toasted malt and mild herbal hops. Flavor is crisp, clean, medium hoppiness. Some caramel and roasted sweetness. I kind of dig it for a sessional Vienna lager.

Very light. Some caramel malt. Very clean. Slight astringency. Honestly, I drank it all before I thought to think about it.

Not alot of hops here which makes the malts that much stronger, needs something else to keep me coming back

bottle. Amber with small head. Caramel malt base. Light hops with mild bitterness in the finish. Light toastiness. Solidly eh.

tectactoe (3122) - Michigan, USA - JUN 30, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2014 Bottle: Amber edges, murky copper center with an ecru, foamy cap that retains nicely as a solid film & chunky collar; moderate, sheeted lacing. Aroma of mostly sticky caramel malts, some stale toasted bread, a bit of toffee, & very faint, underlying herbal hop notes. Hops very mild compared to the big malt bill. Taste is the same way, lots of caramel malt, toasted bread, faint toffee. Slightly metallic. Very slight hint of tartness, almost grape-like. Not really getting much in the way of hops in the flavor at all... A pretty bland, boring amber lager. Perhaps this bottle is old? Not awful, but one-noted & mundane.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, toast, biscuit, brown sugar, light roast, herbal, floral, light pepper, and toast/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/bready malt and moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, brown sugar, light roast, herbal, floral, light pepper, and toast/yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, brown sugar, light chocolate, herbal, floral, light pepper, and toast/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of dark/bready malts and moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with a minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Vienna lager! All around good balance and robustness of dark/bready malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

This beer has an ok flavor drank out of bottle at sushi zen. Good to see that its low calories as the flavor is definitely a little less than a full bodied ale.

Had a glass on tap as part of a sampler at the brewery. Smooth, medium hops, and quite ale-y.

My favorite of the three Wolverine beers that I’ve tried. I thought it was very clean and simple. A nice beer.
