22 oz bottle. Pours a amber color with a white head. The aroma is malty with grassy hops. Flavor is crisp and clean. A good lager.

Thanks to my brother for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a hazy brown/orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the toffee and caramel malts with some grass notes mixed in. The beer also smells a little bit like iced tea. The flavor is tea, earth, grass and biscuit malts. Very easy to drink and the alcohol is completely hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Braudog (6118) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Big ol’ bottle. Pours light amber wtih a big pock-marked head. The nose is quite aromatic ... almost Saazy, almost Northwesty. It drinks with a mellow smoothness not uncommon to a "Vienna" but this has more built-in character than that, hinting at the more Americanized stylistic twists of hoppiness, hinting at a floral brew. Intersting brew. Bring on the hot dogs. (#3264, 1/1/2008)

Suttree (5768) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2008
That label...Man, that’s just good old fashioned nightmare fuel right there. Copper, with a decent sized head. Grainy, rye-ish aroma. Some malty notes at first, then a few smokey, peaty notes. very clean tasting. Would be a pretty good summer beer. Thanks to Springslicker for sharing this one at Stevofest!

TheBeerGod (5760) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2008
Bottle. Amber colored pour. Tall foamy off-white head. Nose is caramel, soft citrus, light earthy and floral hops, some spicy notes and toasted malt. Taste is caramel, sweet malts, fruit flavors (mostly citrus but a hint of pear in there), spicy and earthy hops, light floral notes and some nuttiness. The body on this is a bit chewy for a vienna with a moderate carbonation and a medium overall feel. Ends with more caramel, sweet malts, fruit notes, peanuts, spicy and floral hops and bready notes.

decaturstevo (5703) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Deep orange/amber pour with white head. Aroma of peat and light malt. Nice maltiness and light hints of hops. Slightly thin but excellent carbonation. Over all a pretty solid drinker. I gave it one point for the label. I will say that were this beer available here I would drink it often. I don’t know who brought it but thanks.

kramer (5611) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2009
22 oz bottle, via EDA. Pours a clear copper body with a rather large foamy off-white head that retained fairly long due to the fizzy carbonation. The nose is slightly grainy and dry toasty malt with some caramel and a touch of floral hops. The flavor is slightly sweet with some toasty malt and huskiness. Some bright hoppiness on the back end makes for a fairly crisp finish. Doesn’t really make me think Vienna too much, but it’s pretty drinkable. Light to medium bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2009
Tap at the rake and bottle from utobeer at home with ang. The tap is infinitly superiour. Alround rating: Caramlt balanced with citrusy fresh american hop, id have thought it an american pale ale by style. Alround excellent very drinkable stuff.

bytemesis (5584) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Tap. Pour clear amber with a small off-white head and minimal lacing. Aroma belies color; pilsnery dominated by grain and perhaps caramel. Pilsnery in flavor as well, with some caramel/roasted notes and a little bitterness in the body and finish, although I could not detect any hops-related flavor notes to go along with the bitter. Watery in mouthfeel. Its hard to believe that this color was not helped along given the lack of character in the beer (although perhaps the contract brewer screwed up?)

Very nice, rich lager. Bit of hops to it. Nice deep taste, unlike other lagers which feel too light. Well done.
