COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet, caramel aroma. Clean, crisp taste, and an almost dry aftertaste. Interesting and complex. Very flavorful with strong malt presence.

Beer4000 (4476) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2009
330 ml bottle (2008 4,7%). Clear, dark amber body with a big, foamy beige head. Aroma is light roasted malt and caramel. Flavor is sweet, slightly roasted malt, caramel and a balanced bitterness. Quite light and a short aftertaste, but definitively tasty and nice balanced. This is the best Norwegian wannabe Christmas beer.

A rare beer from Akevitt. Moderate sweet malt and some spice. Clearly a lager, but I wasn’t sure it was a Vienna. Dry finish, but there is some sweetness in the flavor. Not bad for cheap beer from a can.

badgerben (4403) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Thanks to Akevitt for sharing this one. Dark copper color with a thin head. Slightly grainy aroma. The taste manages to be both sweet and bitter grains. A very small pinch of cinnamon.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Let’s start by saying this bottle is probably a few years old. I wonder if it is still made. Poured a murky brown color. Aroma of lightly skunked malt at the start. As the beer warmed this became replaced by creamy chocolate drink (almost like yahoo), very light spice, and aged malt. Flavor is thin and old like a watered down cold hot cocoa. There is a touch of spice on the finish. This beer was definitely on its last legs.

Finn (4210) - Tromsĝ, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2009
Dark red colored. A rapidly disappearing tanned head. Sweet malty aroma with some fruit. Flat sweet watery flavor. Some sweet bitter aftertaste.

Aurelius (4178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2002
Super malty flavor and aroma. Grainy tasting after you get through the malt shock, then sort of molasses-y and woody. Grainy palate. Decent, but I’m not overly impressed.

ClubGonzo (4030) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2010
Bottle from Lerĝy Mat, Bergen. Pours a clear, bronze body with a small, quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is caramel and slightly roasted malts with some faint sour notes. Taste is mildly roasted malts with hints of caramel and grassy hops. Some metallic hints. Well balanced, but ultimately a pretty boring Christmas beer in my opinion.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 26, 2003
Pours a ruddy yellow-orange, with some nice white head. Effervescent and moderately clear, has a light fruit aroma, apples, pears, brown sugar and malt. Wonderful clear and crisp flavor. Dosent water down, improves as it warms and has a nice soft malt flavor with lots of grains. Mildly spiced, no alcohol present. Probably one of the best light beers I've had. Subtle, well balanced, no earth shattering flavors, but hey it's a low gravity, low abv vienna.

Bottle. Amber colour with a small creamy head and a fair lacing. Aroma and taste of malts, spices and fruits. Nice beer.
