COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is an American interpretation of the old Vienna-style lager. Exported from Europe to the U.S. and Mexico in the 1870s, this style had nearly died out by the end of Prohibition. Our version is medium-bodied, with a soft malt flavor balance by spicy hops, an herbal aroma and a slight citrus flavor.

Ungstrup (29663) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2007
An orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is quite light, what is there is sweet malty with hints of oranges. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, leading to a dry metallic end.

(Bottle) Pours a medium amber color with white head. This beer has no flavor at all. Not a bad flavor just nothing at all.

hopscotch (9364) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2003
The crystal-clear, dictionary definition of amber. Large, frothy, off-white head. Aromas of smoked nuts, caramel and cola. The flavor is reminiscient of all other Viennas... only bolder. Astringent; syrupy, then soul cleansingly dry in the mouth. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and soft carbonation... all the bubbles must have ended up in that huge head. Astringent finish. A fine Vienna. However, as I have always felt, Viennas are best enjoyed, not as a session beer, but as an accompanyment to beef jerky, Mexican Food and/or pork rinds. Not recommended for vegetarians!

DocLock (8001) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Copper colored with aroma of caramel malt, toffee, almonds, nuts. Tastes caramel malty, with almonds, apples, toffee, and some hops at the finish. Complex finish.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle courtesy of slob. Pours amber/copper with a creamy white head. Smells of citrus, tea, earth and grapes. Tastes of sweet malt, tea, spices and touches of pepper. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is sweet. Decent.

BBB63 (6122) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Bottle: Medium amber hue with a slightly creamy and long lasting head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of caramel and toffee, wheat bread, floral hops, apple and pear, and light pepper. The taste starts with sweet malts at the forefront and a supporting fruity and twangy character. The finish is mildly astringent and just a hint of bitters and spice. The feel isn’t too bad for the style, even slightly sticky. While this isn’t a world class Vienna (and there are so few of those anyway), it is quite drinkable as a starter for the evening.

Cornfield (5512) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2005
This pours a handsome, orange/amber body with medium carbonation. Alas, the frothy white head doesn’t bother to loiter. This has a large, rich malt aroma, fresh bread with some nuts in it. Nice creamy body filled with caramel, toffee, an orange slice, almonds, and a short hit of herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Good Vienna.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Amber color. Small head. Aroma is sweet malt. A medium bodied lager. Malts are slightly sweet. Hops are soft and slightly spicy. Nicely balanced. Taste is somewhere between a lager and an amber/Vienna. Nice refreshing beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

EithCubes (5053) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Bottle. Sweetish caramel and toast malt fragrance. Amber pour with a rocky eggshell head. Crisp caramel and toast taste in a biscuity malty body with a little funky kick. Medium body with an only slightly dry caramelly aftertaste. Smooths out. Pleasant and quaffable.
