notalush (5637) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Clear copper beer, with a pillowy white head that is well-sustained by the bubbly body - spicy european hop aroma, with notes of butter and bread - the flavor is fairly robust - crisp hop bite up front, followed by some biscuit and gingerbread, then some butter and caramel come into play - some light peppery hints and a long-lingering hop profile - it gets a bit sweet near the end, but the hops do a nice job of keeping it in check - this seems more like a Vienna than anything else, and a fairly tasty one at that.

nuplastikk (5612) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2007
22oz bottle. A little more complex than I had assumed. Deep bronze amber color. Rich and malty, with the sweetness pleasantly balanced by the subtle dryness and complexity of the hops.

DonMagi (5594) - 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.

JK (5591) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Very good for the style. Light hop aroma. Flavor has malt and enough hops that I might call this an English pale ale, almost. Creepy label.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2007
This has a pour that makes one want to drink the beer, a rich amber/orange body highlighted in gols with a tall, dense ecru head. Great lacing. The aroma is caramel and a bit of toffee topped with sturdy hop scents of tart citrus fruits, flowers, and a bit of earthiness. This is well carbonated and spicy warm on the tongue. It’s got rich malty flavors balanced with the aforementioned hops, the latter leading to a crisp, dry, and lightly bitter finish. Interesting interpretation of a Vienna... and quite tasty.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Bottle. Pours an amber body with a white head. Big malty caramel body with some earthy bitterness. Hints of grass and spicy hoppiness. Lightly beady with a hint of caramel.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 14, 2008
Bottle: Copper gold, light head and lacing. Nose of toasted caramel and toffee with some subtle grassy hop notes. The flavor is somewhat dry with a bitter overtone, a ripe melon hint in the finish. Nice chewy body and a creamy tail. Good flavorful vienna, I might almost peg this for an ale with all of the malt complexities.

jgb9348 (5461) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2008
Nice deep hazy golden coloured body with a thinnish white head. Aroma of strong malt - seemingly rye? with some good hops and nice yeast thrown in the mix. Medium-bodied; Strong rye flavoured malty taste with some mild hops and a bit of nuts. Aftertaste shows more rye, alcohol, hops and a good alcohol overtone. Overall, a good spring/summery beer with the malt sticking out most. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from K&E Discount Beverage in New Paltz, New York on 19-April-2008.

Skyview (5453) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Beer from 22-oz bottle sampled at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits Friday tasting, pours a clear copper amber brew with an average off-white head. Dissolves to a fine film and foam ring. Aroma of multi-grain, some cotton candy, and floral hops. Taste is lightly carbonated with a light fruit character. Finish is a clean and crisp with a slight watery aftertaste.

wlajwl (5432) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 29, 2012
Aroma is caramel sweetness and a hint of tea. The flavor is caramel malts, a good hop punch and a dry, bitter finish. A little different for a Vienna, definitely more hops, pretty good.
