Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Pours a clear amber color, with a light tan ring of carbonation. Light, fruity aroma with grassy hops and cereals. Grainy flavor, with nice grassy hops flourishes and malts that sweeten as the beer warms, leading to a bready, fruity finish. Medium body. A solid lager. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Light clear amber, big frothy white head, mostly lasting, nice lacing. Floral aroma. Flavor is sweet caramel, some citrus hops. Smooth finish. DrewTaylor (154) - Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2006
Nice looking beer - solid amber color with a small creamy head. Malty aroma. Flavor was caramel and fruity, especialy grapefruit, though not too bitter. Well balanced, a nice warm beer. Dogfish120 (143) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2007
On draft: Thin white head dissipating quickly, nice lacing throughout. Distinguished nutty and toasty notes with a sweet fruity nose. Sweetness of fruit and honey, dry hoppy nose and nice dry finish. A decent brew. xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2007
12oz one of the last of the multipack that I was not looking forward to. Orange/red color with small white/off-white head. Slight aroma of malt. Flavor was not pleasing but it may just because I’m coming off of Bam Biere, after I get used to it a bit I taste some doughy malt and doughiness, grain and some bittering hops. Creamy med body. After I get used to it, it isn’t all that bad, surprisingly one of the better ones from this brewery.
ganache (5903) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2008
Bottle. Caramel and thick malt aroma with some luscious toffee and biscuit note, a bit of grapey fruit. Deep dark amber body with a lacing, creamy white head. Taste is big on caramel and bready notes, with toffee and a nice contribution from the pale malts. MMM! Medium body is lastingly crisp and refreshing, with a bit of grapey stickiness. Nice rounding hops for balance, but the taste wears thin and plays too sweet after about six ounces. Other than that, a nice surprise. hayduke (5209) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 18, 2009
From a 12 oz bottle obtained in a trade dated 8-1-09 which is two weeks from now so this must be the expiration date, rather than the bottling date. This poured the color of strong tea, and left an off white head and decent lacing. Nose is of caramel malts. Mouthfeel is faiirly soft and smooth. Flavor is malty with not much else showing . Kind of one-dimensional but refreshing enough to drink. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Bottle. Amber, clear, frothy white head. Medium to mild carbonation.Light malty aroma. Mild taste, very drinkable... but nothing outstanding. Would complement food well. BierSchneeman (10) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2007
this is a very well rounded Vienna and the use of Hallertauer is not only apparent but very nicely done but the malt seems to disappear completely omhper (25132) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2008
Bottled at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Clear amber, rich head. Papery buttery malt aroma. Medium sweet with clean rounded mouthfeel. Medium bodied. The low hop rate gives low bitterness and full emphasize on the malt. Nicely balanced, but being a tad sterile and lifeless it seems to more emulate the big south Bavarian brewer’s beers than the really good beers from the region.
