michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2008
22oz. Bottle: Astringent aroma with notes of malts, grains, hops, light caramel, light toasting, slight sweetness, slight berry (juniper?), and herbs. Poured orange/amber in color with a large, fluffy but dense off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Very sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout, as well as a few large particles. Small lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of hops, malts, slight cola, slight metal, light toasting, light caramel, slight medicine, herbs, hop leaves, grains, toffee, slight citrus, and some wheat. Light to medium body. Thin, chalky texture. Average to lively carbonation. Lightly sweet, grainy, malt, and bitter hop finish is chalky.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Bronze colored liquid with a wispy bigger bubbled off-white head. Touches of malt and light caramel in the minimal aroma. Hint of floral hops, but there again just a hint. Light caramel flavor with a touch of sweet herbal hops and lightly toasted malt. Certainly drinkable. Some light sour dough bread buttered with a sweet cream butter hides in the finish. Once again there is nothing in your face about this beer, except the label. Another light amber lager for the masses.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 29, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy softly carbonated orange brown colored body. The aroma was malty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thick flavor contained notes of dark malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

22oz Bomber
A light golden yellow color with a thick head. This was a pleasant lager to drink had some good charatcers and great flavors. Liked the beers underlying spicy flavor and finished quite nice.

kramer (4903) - 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. Doesnít really make me think Vienna too much, but itís pretty drinkable. Light to medium bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation.

notalush (4833) - 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.

thebeertourist (4781) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2009
Bottle. Amber colour with a good creamy head. Citrus hops, especially orange. Citrus meets toffee flavours, some hints of metal. Thirst-quenching.

jgb9348 (4707) - 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.

Boutip (4693) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle: Poured a deep amber color lager with a nice foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of lightly caramelized malt is quite enjoyable. Taste of biscuit malt is very refreshing with limited complexity. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation as well. Well brewed and easily drinkable which I bet was the goal of this one.
