From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with a bottling date stamped on the shoulder of bottle, 3425, which translate to 12/08/05. Made a good appearance, poured a clear red hued copper with a sticky, foamy white head that reduced to a thin bubbly lacing. Had a sweet grainy, malty aroma with a backing earthy, herbal hoppiness. Good carbonation and a dry, crisp light medium bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. Had a grainy malty taste at first, followed by a peppery, herbal hoppiness, a smooth bitterness and a dry grainy malty finish with a lingering peppery hoppiness in the palate.

Pours a burnt orange/amber with a a nice off-white head. Aroma is very sweet and bready with a whisper of citrus. Flavor is nice and sweet on the front end with a great caramel, honey and nuttiness accentuauted by a tiny little hop bite. A little on the sweet side, but very nice nonetheless. llyons37 (23) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2007
I’m so special that I got Sahar’s liquors around the corner to order this up. I really didn’t expect them to but I was delightfully surprised.
Smooth, very understated malt flavor, minor hop bitterness. vyvvy (6638) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 9, 2009
Pours clear copper / amber with a large dense beige head. The aroma has very toasty malt, light spice and a bit of must. It is very clean and a bit dry. Medium body that is a touch grainy and lush with quite a bit of carbonation. The flavor starts with nice toasty nutty lager malt and some spice. The finish has dry spices and some cracker. This was a nice enjoyable beer that I wish I could get locally. arkurzynski (2456) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Pours amber with thin head. Aroma is a combination of malt and citrusy/Saaz-like hops. Caramel malt flavor with slight roast hints. Spicy/citrus hop flavor. Warmth.

Bottle... Poured clear golden with an off-white head. Aroma had lots of bread tones, earthy and sweet. Not much with hops, but a little bit of hop flavors, very worry and grainy. Clean, smooth finish. jmohno (1649) - Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Clear light copper pour witha frothy head diminishing quickly.
Aroma of grainy distinct malt,light sweetness,mild orange/citrus zest like fruit floral note.
Taste is smooth farily sweet somewhat slick witha distinct maltiness as well as hopness there is a orange citrus quality to this.Pronounce grain taste with a light sweetness and a citrus rindy mild bittering.Hops and malt are both equally shown well taste is smooth and clean with a slight sweet stickyness,pretty sessionable and good character. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Amber with a medium quickly dissolving tan head. Aroma of toasted Vienna malt and crystal malt. Taste of caramel, toasted malt, mild fruit and spices. A nicely done Vienna that goes down pretty easy. CanIHave4Beers (4207) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Pours an orangish color with a big head lots of bubbles and plenty of good lace. The aroma is fruity and malty with nutty notes and a light malt sweetness. The flavor is more dry than sweet, a bit boozy with some light saltiness and some good noble hops. I know my rating makes it sound like crap, but I promise this is one fantastic little malty but dry lager. wlajwl (7005) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bready malts with a hint of spice in the aroma. The flavor is much the same as the aroma. Decent lager, more similar to an American Oktoberfest than a Vienna, though.
