Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a lightly hazed, golden-copper colored body with a thin, beige head that dissipates quickly and leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma is sweet, bready caramels and toffees with floral fruits and some toast. Some cookies and a very light hop. Flavor is similar. Sweeter caramel cookies and bready toffees with some toast, floral fruits, and a light, earthy bitterness. Clean and dry with a short aftertaste following a light to medium body and soft carbonation. Overall, a pleasant enough vienna. Solid, sweet malts with some toast, fruit, and light bitterness for balance. Not bad.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Tasted 6/17/10. 12oz bottle. Filtered with a dark golden hue. White lacing head. Aromas of faint caramel and citrus. Medium bodied with a toasty malt character. Subtle bitterness mixed with a slight nuttiness. Really holds up for the lower alcohol percentage.

zer0crew (119) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with hints of amber. No real head, aroma is strong of malts and carmel sweetness with some spicy hops. It doesn’t taste nearly as malty sweet as it smells. More of a smooth, slow, broad bitterness.

riversideAK (5585) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2010
Nose is that of toasted bread, some caramel malts, and a hint of iced tea. Don’t get much in the hop department except a light earthy note perhaps. Pours golden amber with a decently lasting head, no lace, but with nice big visible carbonation. Caramel up front, toast on the mid palate, light earthy and tea like notes in the finish. Drinks easily and has no flaws.

Copper pour with white head and lace. Pepper and paper aroma. Pepper, caramel malt flavor. Medium bodied but foamy.

meisterbrauMHB (69) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Pours a nice, clear, amber with good lacing. Mild citrus ( grapefruit) gives it a pleasant bitter flavor. No bitter aftertaste with a good hop/malt balance. Dont always find that. First Skal for me. Very drinkable.

triguy84 (235) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Pours a clear yellow-gold, thin whispy white head. Subtle phenol aroma, no bitterness, some fruit flavors. Light-medium bodied. Just ok, seems like a light Farmhouse ale.

nuplastikk (4295) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2009
Draft at OF. Filtered amber-orange color. Minimal head. Sweet malty aroma. Relatively middle of the road, balanced. Sort of a mild spicy Xmas beer with a smooth, malty, lagery mouthfeel. Mellow amber-vanilla nuances. A tad too sweet as usual for CB.
