thewolf (12023) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel. Pours a pretty, clear red amber with a smallish fluffy off white head. Aroma has lots of caramel, lightly roasted and a apple scent in the back. Nice, regular Vienna mouthfeel, not too watery nor too full. Malty caramel flavours dominate with a toffee twist as well as a dry roasted hoppy finish.

Pinball (11918) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2009
clear amber, large smooth offwhite head. nice malty slight bready note, dry, caramel. flavor is bitter caramel, some malty sweetness. makes me think of the malty flavor from barley wine but of course much weaker. palate is a bit too fizzy. a very tasty beer.

So called "half-dark" beer. It is decent, nothing amazing. Slightly sweet with a nice aroma.

Sammy (11040) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2006
Big head though beer smell, lace, and nice reddish dark colour. Well malted. Carbonation on the aggressive side. Overall bold taste, with some herbal addition. There is a bit of yeast and wheat in the taste. Good finish.A good Vienna, thanks to Jan Biegeman

150ml taster, on tap at Prague Beer Museum. Solid lacework from a filmy layer. Crystal clear amber coloured body. Brown malty nose, roasted. Taste of roasted caramel malts with moments of almond and plums. Notes of leafy hops towards a mid-sweet ending. Medium bodied. Likable (01.07.2016).

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
Dark amber with a moderate head. The aroma is very malty and the flavour is sweetish and malty with light notes of caramel and licorice. The finish is dry and rather bitter. Initially it was so sweet that I almost poured it down the drain, but after a few mouthful it became better, and it actually have something to offer.
