From tap at blind tiger in nyc. Lovely clear amber served in lager glass. Aroma: fragrant floral hops and sweet malt. Finish: clean, bright, soft aftertaste. Blackbarrel (116) - new york, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2007
Can’t believe my little local Grocer stocks this. Lager purest might not approve, cause it tastes like an IPA to me. Very hoppy. burnt toast and caramel corn. Supersize frothy blond head. Best lager. Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - JUL 14, 2014
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance has a nice bronzed amber color with a light transparency about it to have some light carbonation to be seen rising. There is a two finger white foamy head that mushroom caps and dissipates at a nice pace leaving a messy sort of thick lacing all around the glass.
The smell had some dried sweet caramel malts with a rich sort of nuttiness running underneath to amplify a wonderful aroma.
The taste was extremely nice through the rich caramel malts and a delicate nutty flavoring.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation ends up being somewhat smooth and creamy but still lets in enough harshness.
Overall, whoah, where did this come from Schmaltz? Good job with making a very good Vienna Lager. rajendra82 (1109) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - FEB 23, 2008
The 22 oz. bomber was adorned with a label befitting a funhouse theme I associate with Coney Island (although I have never been there personally). The Beer came out orange amber in color with some chill haze. Carbonation was fine and gentle, which made me wonder if this was bottle conditioned. The aroma was very toasty and caramelized and was layered with a follow up smell of spicy noble hops. The taste was well balanced between the simple bready sweetness of caramel malts and surprisingly bitter hops. Not watery like most Vienna lagers, this was a flavorful and caressing treat. Went fabulously with a plate of Indian cashews and Marcona almonds.

A hoppy beer, that I was very happy to try. I was not disappointed at all and really enjoyed drinking it. I would purchase again.
