Received as a trade extra from BA Psycohops, the 12 oz long neck bottle was conservatively adorned with a simple but elegant front label, and a very informational back label. The beer itself was clear and effervescent deep gold (rather than copper as indicated on the packaging), and the head was one finger thick. The aroma was clean and malty with some spice also present. The taste indicated spicy floral hops and double concoction sweet and toasty German malts. Although malty, the start and end was each sip felt quite dry. Very smooth and softly textured mouthfeel. Simple of construction, but more complex in character than first suggested. No ABV listed, but I suspect this was a bit heavier than a typical Vienna Lager.

This is a good example of an all-malt lager. Very similar to Yuengling and I hope that Stegmaier adds this to their year round lineup. Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Had this at brew at the Zoo this year. Mahogany color with nice sized head. The taste was malty with some strange bitterness. Light roasted notes. grandet (501) - Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Transfering from notes. Bottle. Copper pour with a medium white head. Aroma is of sweet malt with some hops in the background. Taste is caramel, sweet malt and some mild hops. mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2007
12oz Bottle, consumed 8/1/07. Pours a lighter shade of copper with some nice artificially induced bubble. Aroma is strikingly similar to Yuengling Lager without the over the top creamed corn. Flavor again reminds me of Yuengling, just a little bit cleaner. Market this as an American Lager and it gets much better reviews from me, but if I gotta hear sales speak about how great of a Vienna it’s supposed to be, I’m rating it as such. And a Vienna it ain’t.

It poured a dark amber with a good sized light tan head. I expected a strong heavy malted drink from the color. It was much lighter bodied than I expected, more like a Vienna in the title. It was crisp and refreshing, words I normally write about a good Pilsner. It was well balanced with a light malt aftertaste. pbjclimber (150) - Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Pours a light mahogany color with an off white head. Flavor is of roasted and dark malts with a some hops. It is light to medium bodied with a nice crisp taste. This is a good lager. mike5203 (38) - Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2007
12oz bottle, and draft. I Ilke it, I think this can give Yuengling Lager a run for its money. It is a very easy to drink beer with a great balance. It has a beautiful mahogany color with a off white head. Very smooth going down with more flavor than Yuengling. This is a great every day brew. mikeaperez (1) - Rhode Island, USA - APR 23, 2009 does not count
Where can I obtain this in the Boston, MA area? I am looking to use a ’150’ beer to celebrate the 150th anniversary of an event.
