Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Pours copper with a nice white head. Smells of some strawberries, hay, some earthiness. Tastes of citrus, nutty, some caramel, some peppery hints. Finish is lasting and sweet.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle:   Amberish, a bit hazy, thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Soft grassy nose, slight biscuit.   Notes of caramel, soft soil, grains, and toasted malts on the tongue.   Seems pretty clean too.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Seems more hearty than your normal Vienna, darker, and with more caramel.   Better than expected.

Svesse (6297) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2009
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Amber colour with brief, beige head. Malty, bready nose with ryvita, caramel and spicy hops. Malty taste with notes of brown bread, citrus peel, toasty vienna style malt and spicy hops in the finish. Medium body, balanced malt sweetness. Medium bitterness. Tasty and spicy vienna style lager.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2005
Deep orange with a slight haze, faint white head. Straightforward sweet and grainy malts completed by a racy floral hop touch. Quite bitter, certainly dry, brings forth slight nutty oiliness, but remains tame in all its componenents. Light bodied, crisp texture. From average to average.

TaktikMTL (6031) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2007
Bouteille de 12 oz achetée chez Liquors 44 (Northampton, MA). Arôme: Odeur de caramel avec une pointe d’houblons. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée orangée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’houblons et de malts rôtis. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’houblons en arrière goût. (Rating #1306)

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Bottle: Poured with the classic american amber ale appeal ... deep bornze, bubbly and well-headed. The aroma is thick, almost ashy. Wow, what a big body, just like their IPA, this is as chewy as an old piece of gum. The flavor is thick with caramel and candy, Bartlett pear, bit of sugar. Warm. Nice and big for the style. Well done. (#3059, 8/17/2007)

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Bottle. Pours an amber body with a light head. Lots of toasted malt with caramel and a light hop finish. No etoh and a bit bland.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2006
Draught. Not too bad, but i guess it was a little unexciting. Some light caramelly sweetness and then a dry-ish, mildly bitter hoppy finish. Quite easy to drink, but not something i would search out.

nimbleprop (5226) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Poured a translucent amber with orange hues and an active, frothy head that settles to one finger on the top. Aroma is balanced between malt and American hops. Flavor is very similar with yeasty, biscuit notes more reminscent of a Belgian than an American. Mouthfeel and finish were rather fizzy, they may have gone a bit overboard on the carbonation. I’ve had worse, not many though.

decaturstevo (5219) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Golden pour with hints of red. Light head and lace. Nice caramel malt aroma. Sweet start with a hint of cherriness. A hint of hop bitter on the end. Thin and a bit watery, decent carbonation. Not bad more like an amber ale than at PL.
