TorbenJensen (1334) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2015
This dark Vienna has a nice taste of hard roasted malt, good notes of dark chocolate and a little hint of coffee. It tastes a bit of a sugary sweetness and have little character of a dark mild ale. Hop bitterness is very discreet. It is a successful dark storage leaning close to the Czech types, which obviously has been the inspiration for this stock. Tasty and lovely.

radagast83 (5954) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2015
Bottle from a local Asian restaurant. Poured a slight clear, dark amber color with a pretty large off-white head. Aroma was sweet malts, light toasted notes - light Vienna lager character. Light toast, caramel. Okay, probably one of the best of these kinds of beers you’ll get at a non-craft Asian restaurant.

Bottle in Tad Lo, Laos. Clear amber-brown colour with a small head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavour is sweetish with caramel and poor malt flavour, medium bodied. A waste of time but the food was amazing and it worked.

seymour (1707) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Enjoyed at a cool Thai restaurant in Little Five Points, Atlanta, Georgia. Poured from 12oz brown into a shaker glass, a clear copper colour with moderate offwhite foam, a litle lace. To be honest, the menu simply read "Beerlao" so I thought I was ordering just another macro pale lager. I was pleasantly surprised when it poured so dark and exhibited some rich malty aromas and flavours. Caramel, toffee, molasses, sweet but not sticky or cloying, with a measured hoppy balance. Light body, strong carbonation, nice round mouthfeel. It finished drier than I expected, but with some subtle fruity and caramelly aftertastes. Pretty good stuff, especially paired with spicy green curry. I would gladly order it again.

KoRoBeNiKi (133) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle in (multiple) Thai restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen, NYC. Aroma: Malt, Cereal, Grain, lil’ fruit, sweetness Appearance: Dark, amber, very small head Taste/palate is same as aroma, with a bare hint of alcohol in the back. It’s a sweet amber lager. There are worse choices though as there is nothing super off-putting. It’s just a bit boring.
