THOUGHTS: Not bad, but not great either. Surprisingly cloying. The hops in this one were pretty much just there to keep this from being nauseatingly sweet. It was a bit one sided, but it went down fairly easily. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, very dark, copper to dark, orangey bronze with nice carbonation and a large to huge, rocky, off-white head that mostly, but slowly diminished leaving excellent lacing. The aroma had a bit of dark bread; hints of chocolate and coffee; and metallic hops. The initial flavor was sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was rather to heavily sweet, lightly bitter and slightly sour with an average duration. There was caramel malt, a little roasted malt, hints of chocolate and coffee, slight metallic hops and some dark bread. The light to medium body was syrupy with rather fizzy carbonation and a fairly crisp and slightly astringent finish that get a little bit metallic as it warmed.

Bottle@ManyTimes. Malty, bit sugary, tasty and flavourful Dunkel. I quite enjoyed this with a good meal.

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.

Clear brown with a quickly fading big white head, decent lacing.... Sweet malty aroma, smells sticky, not a hop presence at all... Flavor is not bad at all for what it is, not as sweet as it smells, a small touch of hops, decent flavor... Easy drinking, sweetness cuts the alcohol nicely...

Pretty much just a pale lager that’s not...pale...Light notes of caramel and pale malts. Grainy and bready on the nose and taste. Quite drinkable and different but not the best by any means.

Well I enjoy the Beerlao Pale lager despite not caring for that style much, and I love love love Viennas, but unfortunately I think they dropped the ball on this. It’s hard to swallow it down, really. Nice that they tried, at least.

Had this one bottled. Hazy, medium brownish pour topped with a one finger eggshell head and an earthy malty nose. Surprisingly grassy and vegetal, a little offputting. Muddy finish.
