Can. Sour milk and caramel malt aroma. Amber with moderate head. Sweet caramel malt, hay and lightly bitter quinine flavor. Pretty good.

12 oz twist off. Amber to golden pour with a fizzy offwhite head that sticks for awhile and fizzes away with some small splotches of lacing. Smell is light. Vienna malts, baked bread, and some slight herbal/earthy hops. Flavor is herbal hops, rich malt, caramel, low bitterness. Finish is malty with a hint of bitterness. The mouthfeel is the only low point of this beer, it is quite watery though its flavor is robust.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2006
Bottled. Poured a clear medium orange with a tall cap of off-white headage. Nose was light with notes of yeast, pears, caramel, and autumn floral hoppage. Almost smoky smooth caramel gracefully washed over the palate interspersed with faint fruity esters and floral bitterness. Really felt good on the palate. Roasty caramel formed the base for the finish. I really enjoyed this one.

Pleasant sweet hoppy aroma. Very well balanced flavor and a crisp sweet finish. Very good example of an amber ale.

phaleslu (6502) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, brown sugar, nuts, tea, caramel, and a hint of earthy hops. Flavor is pretty much the same, with caramel and toasted malts, brown sugar, earthy hops, and nuts. Light-bodied, with a toasty, dry mouthfeel and low-medium carbonation. Nice.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2006
Bottle: Fiery amber, clear, moderate to small off-white sudsy head, spotty lacing, very light carbonation.   Rich malty nose, very subtle pale fruit skin.   Much the same on the tongue.   Clean, but flavor drops off quickly.   Soft for a Vienna.   Body and mouthfeel, while average, border on the watery side.   Light malt character on the finish.   Semi-sweet as well.   Clean, decent, but too light of an example.

BVery (6222) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber pour with a small off-white ring head. Aroma is toffee and caramel malt. Lighter, somewhat fizzy palate. Taste is caramel/toffee, earthy hops, and a bit (just a bit) on the watery side. Decent beer, for sure, but it shouldn’t elicit any "hey dude, you need to try....." texts.

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle is clear red with thin white head, aroma brought notes of caramel some slight grass and grainy notes to it, hints of biscuit, yeast, some spice as well. Taste is pretty caramel forward, hints of spice and grass, touch of yeasty notes finishing fairly clean, slight hop bite as well.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2003
Amber near copper hue with solid small head and some lacing. Aroma hints of toasted malt, caramel, mild fruit, wood and some spice. The initial taste was malty, but a tangy hop undertone balanced the beer and cleaned the palate. Smooth yet lively mouthfeel. Medium-bodied. A good vienna styled beer, quaffable.

drowland (6033) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2012
4/20/12. 12oz bottle. Clear light amber pour, almost a bit orange, with a thick, creamy khaki head that cuts but lingers and laces in rings. Mild aroma of toasted bread, caramel, and grains. Plain, but unoffensive. Sweeter flavor up front with plenty of caramel which transfers into fresh bread and a bit of a fruity/floral aspect. Not bad.
