Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Draught at Porterhouse Cork. Pours deep, semi-clear brown-black with a thin but lasting white head. Aroma doesn’t have a pile going on, slight caramel, floral hints and sweet berry. Taste is mild with sweetness and bitterness, but a big tasty bitter finish. Nicely carbonated palate with a medium body and a nice lingering bitterness. Decent but a little understated for my liking.

Keg @ Porterhouse. You don’t run into new viennas every day...The pour’s a deep reddish brown color. Dark indeed! Medium off-white head. The aroma’s fairly faint. Some toast, a bit of nut and caramel. The taste is heavily grainy. Loads of toasted brown bread flavors. Light chocolate, maybe some red fruit. The grain flavors really overpower whatever subtlety may exist in this beer. Medium body, a bit sticky. Overall, not a great effort. Ragged stuff.

rlgk (10044) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2012
Draught at Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London. Clear deep amber beer with a nice lasting beige head. Malty toffee aroma, fruity, grapes, biscuits,roasted notes, some spices. Malty toffee flavor, caramel, raisins, figs, floral, minerals, creamy, some hoppy bitterness. Quite nice with a fruity floral finish.

ACD (617) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 10, 2012
Keg dispense at Porterhouse Temple Bar. Deep mahogany pour with thin off white head & plenty of lacing. Aroma is primarily caramel, slight butterscotch, touch of spice and light roastedness. Taste is big on the caramel, some light fruitiness (plums & red apples), again some sweet butter stuff happening. Sugary Sweet aftertaste. Medium/thin mouthfeel. Not too bad, refreshing Vienna style lager - quite partial to this style so I did enjoy this.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2011
Reddish-amber. Rich caramelly nose. Toasty, fresh, with lots of caramel. Body and finish like a New World micro lager, but that’s not a bad thing because it leaves a lot of sugars and caramels for warmth.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Draft @ brewery tap, Temple Bar. Clear copper, not much of any head and becomes flat later. Aroma is a touch buttery and caramel with cookie malt. Soft mouthfeel. The malts are biscuity and mouthfeel is oily. Not as refreshing as advertised but still a well-made brew.

Deu (678) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 15, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2012 On tap for the moment at The Porterhouse, Temple Bar. Smooth texture. Red color, litlle head. Medium dark beeries nose. Light-bodied and medium-flavoured dark lager. Not bad at all

I found this idea of a dark lager quite unusual but apparently until 1842 all beers were like this..murky brown colour with very thin head and little aroma. There is a sweetness on the palate possilby dark fruits and a slightly dry finish..interesting
