thedm (4889) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 23, 2003
This brew poured a medium sized head of fine to large sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a transparent carbonated light brown colored body. The aroma is a medium strength malt hop one. It had a smooth mouthfeel with a slight hop bite in the finish. THe flavors in this brew contain elements of malt caramel and mild hops. Although need ing a bit more character to make it better, it is definately a fine beer that I would not mind sitting around drinking with a few friends.

kramer (4695) - 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. Thereís a bit of huskiness to it, but itís pretty minimal. Medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. A nice lingering bitterness keeps it from being too sweet and one dimensional. Prettty damn good.

decaturstevo (4665) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Nice deep golden amber pour with slight off white head and lace. Aroma of light caramel malt and a hint of spiced hop. Sweet caramel malt followed by a very mild hop bitter. A lingering sweet to bitter taste. A bit over carbonated for me. Still a decent beer.

Strykzone (4496) - 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.

jgb9348 (4493) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Amber coloured body with a a copper glow at the bottom and a very thin half-centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt, light sugar, very minimal hops and a nice fresh grain scent. Light-bodied; Nice fresh malt flavour with a good toasty flavour, some light wheat and a strong caramel and toffee finish. Aftertaste is mellow and subdued with only a little toffee and nutty flavours making things bitter, but the malt and light grain stays throughout. Overall, a nice light beer with some solid flavours and nothing bitter or offputting. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased on 30-December-2013 for US$2.39 from Corner Store (Bait and Tackle) in West Palm Beach, Florida sampled on New Yearís Day 2014 (January 1st) in my hotel room here in Clearwater, Florida.

I was a bit surprised by this; had it in Madison yesterday at a Mexican restaurant not knowing much about it, and it turned out to be one of the best Ambers Iíve had. Lots of malty character, very sweet and caramel-like, but with just enough hops to keep it from going Scotch Ale on you. Could have more character in the nose, but not much to complain about.

Amber color, obviously. there were certinaly malt traces, but I found the hops stood out more and stole the show. It made for an interesting taste; not sure I like it.

JK (4293) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 11, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2004 Looks good, huge cream colored head. Beer is amber. Fruit aroma is ruined by alcohol. Some malt in the flavor with a a little hops. Being a Vienna, I wasnít expecting much, and this beer didnít offer anything.

ChainGangGuy (4281) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, amber body encircled by a thin ring of white bubbles. Smell: Simply a light aroma of sweaty grains, bruised citrus fruits, and perhaps a slight floral touch. Taste: Light toasted maltiness with a mild sweetness. Very, very slight nuttiness. Floral hint. Spicy hop character with a medium bitterness to balance. Fairly clean finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Thereís not much to say except that itís a nice, easy-drinking lager.

The aroma is dust and hoppy with a grassy/herbal hop. The malt is subtle and has a slight caramel quality. The appearance is light amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth from carbonation. Overall itís a bit off style and sort of a mess but not bad.
