pours an amber color with a good off white fluffy head. aroma is toasted malt and a nice piney light citrusy hop aroma. flavor has the same elements but a bit stronger. this is a vienna?! kind of a blend of an apa, vienna, and bitter. i like it though a nice anniversary beer for them.
Amber to burnt orange in color. Diminished beige head (3-), Caramel to stale cigarette scents. Not sure why I’m getting the tobacco, but it does smell like the shirt after a night in a smoky bar. Some floral hops and grain in the background. Light toasty sweetness in the start. Fairly simple. With caramelized sugar and only a hint of hops. Smooth to lightly oily feel. Fairly simple, caramel based lager. 12/10

Reviewed from notes: pours a hazy golden color with white head. Cereal grains, yeast, and some citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some grain. ads135 (4590) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 21, 2013
This was a pretty decent beer. Thickish on the tongue, with a light fresh taste. Bready malt body. boozedude (2228) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle into glass.. hazy dark orangish pour with white head.. Funky dead fruit aroma.. Taste is some bitter fruit.. Bitter finish some mild hopps..just ok Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 29, 2012
The beer is light orange colored and fairly hazy. The white head is a finger thick, displays decent retention, and leaves some sparse lacing on the pint glass. The aroma offers fruit, wheat, malt, light hops. The flavor is decent. The beer is slightly sweet, with malt and fruit flavors. The body is pretty thin, with solid carbonation. Overall, a decent brew. I would try it again.

A little past its prime but the hops still do come through. Reminds of a german export style. dekester1 (365) - Town of Maple Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Poured an amber/gold color with a nice frothy head that faded slowly to lacing. Aroma was nice - bready, sweet malt, fruity. Taste was pretty decent as well - hoppy (high to moderate), nutty malt backbone. Palate was above average too. Overall, a nice Vienna lager in the vein of Sam Adams. jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Pours a copper gold into the glass with a nice head of pearl colored foam. Nose is mostly malt. Creamy on the palate, the taste is light hops on the front end, light malt and bread in the middle and a hop kicker on the finish. Overall, a pleasant sipping beer that pairs well with summer picnic food. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear, medium orange with a short, sticky off-white head.. nice lacing followed it down. The aroma picked up sweet caramel and redder fruity notes with fresh pine resin and grassy accents.. really, really clean. The flavor found sweet, lightly-toasted caramel at the core, with fresh, prickly pine and leafy bitterness throughout.. refreshing, lingering bitterness and simple, but tasty malts on the finish. Lighter-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation on the palate.. good flow to it. felsenpils (172) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
This one is even worse than their Pils, though along the same lines. Added some flavor complexities? They sure have, just the wrong ones. Its only saving grace is that it is seasonal so that we do not have to dump it out year round.
