Rich gold color with small head. Muted roasted malt nose. Med weight with a sweet to drying finish. Old malt flavors some roasted notes and faint cherry quality. Eh!

12oz Bottle Hermans Package Store James Page Amber Lager pours a beautiful crystal clear amber leaning toward orange. A one finger eggshell off-white head formed on the pour a fell down to a skimming. Leaves drink lines that quickly slide back into the body. Good looking brew. The aroma is of 100% malt. Big on the Munich nuttiness malt with a pleasant lightly toasted grain quality in there to mix things up slightly. There are some fruity tones as it warms I cant really put my finger on. Pretty straightforward but good. This beer actually drinks good. The nutty chewy Munich malt comes through nicely on the palate. The fruitiness comes along just before the swallow. Surprisingly good. Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. Does get a little thin on the backend but doesnt detract much from the overall mouthfeel. Slightly gritty finish. This is a good sessionable brew I can see myself buying again. I really dont drink many Vienna lagers but this is a good one. This is a surprisingly good Vienna Lager. Truthfully I didnt expect a whole lot from this brew but its a pleasant surprise. I dont run into this style too often but this is a good example. 10/12/07

Much better the second time around. Very drinkable with carmel notes and an udaertone of pecan. A little tinny to start but a well constructed brew.

Decent beer with no adjuncts. Nice clear amber beer with a large rapidly diminishing off white head. Cr3eamy moutfeel and nice balance of malt with the lightly bitter hopp finish. Decent balance.

12 0z bottle pours. The aroma is disappointing and taste is just not that good. I will not buy any more of this.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2007 On tap at The Bar in Grand Chute. Mild taste, aroma and body. Pleasant but nothing to shout about.

This one was medium red with a long lasting beige head. Definitely the aroma of bread you’s expect from a Vienna. Hops were definitely in the background , but had a spice to them to balance. Not bad.

Not a bad beer, but not an espacially good beer either. On par with your typical Leinie's or Sam. Aroma was decent, not real distinctive. Looked very nice, a dark red-brown-amber color (the best aspect of the beer was the appearance). The flavor was pretty boring, bordering on standard. A bit better than macros, but not much.
