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

TheAlum (6942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Draft on tap at Dotty Dumpling’s Dowry (Madison, WI). Pours a crisp amber hue, decent haze, some fiery sun within. A moderate frothy offwhite head sits atop, laces well, dies to a firm head, small but undaunting. Aromas are some crisp amber caramel malts, pale malts, touches of toast, brewers grains, and a light floral hopping. Served a bit too cold, as it warms some more aromatics, bread and toast. Initial is lighter bodied, some caramel, but largely bread, dough, touches of toast, with light florals and grass. A light bitterness, but grainy and pale malts, with a touch of toast and more substantial touch of toffee rue the day. Light bitter finish, lingering sweetness, a drinkable and easily quaffable Amber, session beer.. That just lacks some life in my book. A clean sessionable beer that lacks complexity and a little life, even for an Amber. Simple, no real spice. Amber.. Vienna.. Either way, it just lacks character.

Glowing anber color/ off white head, nice pour. Honey biscuit aroma with mild celery. medium body. Decent lightly sweet honey bready flavors, easy drinking.

Strykzone (6717) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Clear copper color with orange tinted foam. Caramel aroma. Flavor offers plenty of unmalted barley along with toffee and fruit. Hops increase as the beer warms as do spices. Dry bitterness. Enjoyable and easy to drink. Nice beer.

5000 (6599) - 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.

BBB63 (6557) - 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.

Suttree (6070) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 20, 2006
Just as amber as all git out. Can’t git no amberer. Nice foamy head. Aroma of caramel and maybe a whiff of iced tea. Rich & smoooove. Mostly sweet, with a note of black pepper.

Patrickctenchi (6017) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Can: Clear, light amber with a frothy, light tan head. Toffee malt aroma. Toffee/caramel taste...a little toast. Light, creamy. Rather tasty.

kramer (5826) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orangish amber with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is slightly sweet toasty and vienna malts with just a touch of hops. Sweet and clean malty flavor with a fairly decent amount of hops for the style on the finish. There’s a bit of huskiness to it, but it’s pretty minimal. Medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. A nice lingering bitterness keeps it from being too sweet and one dimensional. Prettty damn good.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2009
12oz bottle. Filtered orange-amber color with minimal head. Odd, awkward amber-caramel aroma. Hmm..Id have to assume this is old. Off pungent amber malt, maybe some nutty flavor in there too. Somewhat like Killians, somewhat like a macro Oktoberfest. Off bottle.
