The rich amber color and caramel flavor of this beer are derived from the generous amount of caramel malt in our recipe, with just a dash of roasted unmalted barley for a subtle toasted flavor in the background. The sweetness, body, and mouth feel tell you that this is an all-malt beer. The finish has a balanced edge of Willamen and Casade hoppiness which cuts through the malty character, leaving a clean palate which beckons for more. Note: the terminology of "stein" refers to the appropriate drinking vessel and not to a type of beer made with hot rocks.

"i was intrigued by the premise of this all malt amber lager, but it was another miss. slight fart character to the aroma (nice, no?). the flavor was unique, but not good enough to make up for the otherwise unimpressive beer."

12 oz bottle. (Lakefront Brewery) Milwaukee, WI.
Clear copper colour with a small off-white head. Mild sweet toffee, malt and banana in the aroma. The flavour is quite easy but there’s nothing wrong with it. Dryish malt, banana sweetness and mild hoppy bitterness. I don’t know what the banana is doing here. Drinkable, forgettable.

Bottle. Cherry and caramel malt aroma. Brown amber color with moderate head. Sweet caramel malt with light hops finish. Much nicer body than you usually get with a Vienna.

Bottle... Mostly clear, amber lager with a mid-sized, wispy, off-white head. Caramel and Vienna malt aroma with light roastiness. Caramel malt and citrusy hop flavor. Mild bitterness. Almost full-bodied and creamy with moderate carbonation. Astringent, dry, grassy finish. Thanks headbanger!

Another from the lakefront mix pack I picked up at total wine. Amber pour. Lots of caramel, light hops, grains and lots of boringness. Flavor is much the same. Not all that horrible. But boring. Malty and grainy...a bit sweet. Light hop bite at the fnish.

Thanks to buckybeer for this one. Hazy deep copper pour with 2-finger creamy khaki head. Aroma of tart fruit, caramel malt, brown sugar, almonds, vinous fruit. Tastes sweet, with a big caramel malt element, plus brown sugar and conciord grapes. Well done!

adnielsen (10605) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Bottle @ home. Hazy, dark reddish orange appearance with a smallish tan head. Toasty grainy, caramel, grassy, straw aroma. Citrus fruity, toasty caramel malty, grassy, hay flavor. Actually a nice Vienna.

Tap. Mostly clear amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is a very mild caramel malt. Taste is terrific - hop profile with mild caramel malt. Nice brew.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small disappearing off white head. The aroma is sweeter caramel malt, herbal hops, and some nuttiness. The flavor is sweet caramel malt, toasted bread, and a touch of spices. Medium mouthfeel and very smooth drinking. I like this one more than I thought I would.
