Aroma is caramel sweetness and a hint of tea. The flavor is caramel malts, a good hop punch and a dry, bitter finish. A little different for a Vienna, definitely more hops, pretty good. KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2008
Bottle from a NYC deli.
It’s the He’brew guys again, eh? I would have thought it risky to cahrge serious money for lager in such a fierce market.
But this is a nice, malty, pleasant lager, probably similar to what you could have had on Coney Island ca 1910. That being said, all the fuzz on the label about 6 malts and 4 hops is a bit too much. But it was lovely with a slice of spinach pizza. Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Big ol’ bottle. Pours light amber wtih a big pock-marked head. The nose is quite aromatic ... almost Saazy, almost Northwesty. It drinks with a mellow smoothness not uncommon to a "Vienna" but this has more built-in character than that, hinting at the more Americanized stylistic twists of hoppiness, hinting at a floral brew. Intersting brew. Bring on the hot dogs. (#3264, 1/1/2008) kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2009
22 oz bottle, via EDA. Pours a clear copper body with a rather large foamy off-white head that retained fairly long due to the fizzy carbonation. The nose is slightly grainy and dry toasty malt with some caramel and a touch of floral hops. The flavor is slightly sweet with some toasty malt and huskiness. Some bright hoppiness on the back end makes for a fairly crisp finish. Doesn’t really make me think Vienna too much, but it’s pretty drinkable. Light to medium bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2012

Bottle and served in standard pint glass: Amber hued with a fading fizzy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and herbal hops, caramel and grainy malt, a dusty yeast and a slight peppery ester. The taste has a nice kick of herbal bitterness over a layer of biscuity malts. There is a hop spice finish and a hint of metallic character. The mouth feel is crisp around the edges with a grainy aftertaste. Not bad, quaffable brew.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium amber with a nice off-white head that lasts. Aroma of caramel and a bit of hops. Taste is fruity, sweet caramel and hops. Nice blend. Very drinkable lager. vyvvy (6476) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Pours clear bronze with a bubbly light tan head. The aroma has well toasted smooth malt, some nuttiness and a bit of hops. Medium crisp body with quite a bit of sharp carbonation. The taste starts with dark toasted nutty malt and dry caramel. The finish adds some earthy / spicy hops A very respectable lager. Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2008
That label...Man, that’s just good old fashioned nightmare fuel right there. Copper, with a decent sized head. Grainy, rye-ish aroma. Some malty notes at first, then a few smokey, peaty notes. very clean tasting. Would be a pretty good summer beer. Thanks to Springslicker for sharing this one at Stevofest!

Bottle: Poured a deep amber color lager with a nice foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of lightly caramelized malt is quite enjoyable. Taste of biscuit malt is very refreshing with limited complexity. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation as well. Well brewed and easily drinkable which I bet was the goal of this one.
