Rich gold with light white head. Faint nose with some light hops. Light mouthfeel with sweet/bitter finish(light). Light roasted flavors with some carmel and candy notes. Nice light brew though not much of a winter warmer!

JK (4955) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Very large rocky head. Copper colored. Strange chemical aroma with malt. Flavor is malt, sweet carmel, and a bitter hop finish.

notalush (5351) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Bottlefrom Ughsmash (thanks!) - copper body with a tiny ring of lace - weak, herbal aroma, with a light, doughy sweetness - lightly sweet, with hints of vegetable and a faint hop profile - lingering breadiness in the finish -fairly unimpressive.

Poured a dark reddish brown colour, with a medium sized tan head. Aroma has something of vanilla, lightly toasted malts and a little caramel. Mouthfeel is light and creamy, taste is soft and mildly acidic. finishes long.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

spilledpint (349) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2012
12 oz bottle drom steves madison. Ar: Dominant malt aroma. Bread dough, biscuit malt and a touch of caramel. A bit overly malty sweet aroma for me. Touch of apicyness. Ap: Pours a clear amber with a one inch off white head. Decent retention and nice rings of lace. T: Pretty sweet corn and biacuity and caramel malt flavora. Hop profike is very mild, what character is there is a touch of vlack pepper and some grassy coriander. P: Medium body with assertive carbonation. O: Not nearly as into thisnbeer as i am with cap amber. Just too much sticky zweet malt.

TheHOFF43 (1779) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Tap at Old Chicago-Uptown. Pours a clear copper. Aroma is spices. Flavor is meh, at best. Nothing too special here. Lots of spices and malts but nothing stands out.

NordicV (1386) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2013
Kopparfärgad öl med ett smutsvitt skum. Doften är ganska söt med inslag av nötter. Även smaken är söt, för söt för mig. Dragning åt mörkt socker och torkad frukt.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2011 Fairly spicy and moderately roasted with a touch of hops are the primary characteristics of this medium bodied beer. I was surprised they called it a Vienna on here. Also somewhat strong alcohol note for its somewhat restrained ABV.
