Pours small head with a dark amber color. A little cloudy... could have been the light though. It looks and smells a lot better than it tastes. Smooth but somewhat flat. Could use a little more carbonation. Nothing too impressive. Where’s the Zing??? DrnkMcDermott (3136) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Bottled. I belive this was my first beer in this style, back when I visited the Schell Brewery a few year ago. It seemed very likable then, though there are few faults when I try it now. There is a good Vienna malt smell. It pours a nice red with little to no head. Taste is rich and malty, but has the phenolic tang of peated malts. So a bit off, but that’s the risk in this style. Definitely worth looking up if you get a chance. DocLock (11020) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Thanks to RobertsReality for this. Ruby pour with medium white head. Heavy malt aroma, with toffee, fruit, and slight barnyard elements. Tastes malty, with a dry finish and medium palate. thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2004
This bottled brew poured a large sized head of frothy mostly lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was transparent and copper brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of grassy floral malts. Its mouth feel is initially tingly smooth with a tingly off palate and a strange aftertaste. Its flavor contained malty notes. A very average brew.

Light red, small head. One dimensional flavor of somewhat sweet malt. Better than many other Vienna’s I have had.

Not as bad as some of you guys thought, but, I did just have a long day.Hold on, jumpedd the gn, leaves a bad after taste. OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - DEC 12, 2004
I thought this would be some good beer. It had a pretty cool story behind it but all it turned out to be was a piss hard-on followed by a bad case of blue balls. I didn’t think the taste lived up to the hype. barleyPops (1183) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2004
bottle. poured a deep orange/gold with a quickly disappearing head. slightly sweet and malty with little hop taste. just a touch sour on the finish. hotstuff (5257) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Bottle. Poured a smooth off-white head with fair lacing, semi-transparent, fast rising carbonation, and an orange brown hue. Malty and sweet aroma. Lightly bitter, malt and some caramel in the taste. Tingly and somewhat bitter mouthfeel. Medium bodied beer. Just so-so. Frank (4235) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2004
The fact that the commerical description brags about imported hops makes me think Michelob. Uh oh! But this is way better. Pours a nice, headless orage. Malty and a bit fruity and floral. A bit low on carbonation. Hardly top notch but good enough.
