5000 (6300) - 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 (6174) - 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.

blipp (6148) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Caramel malt aroma with light hops. The flavor is well balanced with sweet malt and grassy hops. Not bad.

Rastacouere (6134) - 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 (5854) - 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 (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, 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.

decaturstevo (5159) - 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.

heemer77 (5104) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Poured a medium orange with a thin head. The aroma was Colby cheese with some old toffee. There was also a hint of butterscotch. The taste had some funky cardboard and old tobacco. There was also some light orange peel.
