Amber coloured with malty nose. But the beer as defaults. DMS in mouth with some vegetable (celery) taste to it. My recollection of this beer is that it was better.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2010 (rerate - draught at Gumbo Shop) amber with small off white head. Aroma of caramel malt. Flavor is crisp malt, hint of sweetness. Very refreshing. Liked it better than I had the bottle I’d previously rated.

Nuffield (3771) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Really very mediocre. Slight caramel malt aroma when well warmed, but otherwise little aroma, little flavor (malty mineral water), slightly flat body, and only a reddish-amber color to recommend for it. Insipid.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Pours a nice amber color with a thin, somewhat fizzy, nonlasting head. Virtually no aroma and very little flavor. I did have a small taste of malt but very little else. On the plus side, it is refreshing, but water usually is.

nice apperance but not too flavourful. Had a mild and sweet malty taste too it. After taste was not present.

jgb9348 (5014) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2003
Nice light copper colour with a proper one centimetre thick off-white head. Mild malty aroma, nothing too superb. Medium-bodied; Creamy mouthful; Short malty taste showing a few other characteristics, but really...not much. Aftertaste has just about nothing, only a subtle maltiness. Overall, this is one of my least favourite Viennas, and it's not recommended by me! I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York.

Shag (2668) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 8, 2003
Amber colored with a small diminishing head. Aroma is faint malts and hint of raspberries. Flavor is quite weak with a slightly sour lemony background and some malt present but not making themselves known. This is just too watery. Its ok but overall color me unimpressed.

raymow (985) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Beautiful amber color and a nice clean, crisp taste (probably from the use of the spring water). A pretty good offering that I'd drink again, although the aroma leaves a bit to be desired.

hayden1215 (321) - Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2003
Dark amber in color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet light malt with grains. Flavor is slight hops with notes of sweet caramel. Smooth, not all that bad.

Tap at Barley's. An orange appearance with not much of a head. Not that strong of an aroma, and the taste wasn't anything to write home about. Wasn't impressed.
