Looks a pretty amber in the glass, but the fun stops there. Smells and tastes, I hate to say it, like a cheap domestic. Would not buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Thin head. Tea colored. Tastes similar to commercial description - some bready malt but not much bitterness. Good example of a Vienna larger. Will buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just know that I like it. Appearance: Color is reddish amber and mostly clear. Aroma: Bready malt. There is no bitter bite to this beer. Smooth, "bready" malt with slight hop taste to it. Love this beer.

The beer is copper to amber colored with a half inch of head. The aroma brings lager character, yeast, a touch of fruit, sweet breads, grain. A tad sweet, countered to a small degree by a touch of bitterness. Pretty light in body with moderate carbonation. A nice complement to the bratwurst and sauerkraut.

I am certainly no expert on the art of brewing of craft beer, and I am most certainly a layman with regard to the terminology used by many adept reviewers on Rate Beer. Lagers are not typically my style of choice unless I am cooking with beer. This lager, from Devil’s Backbone, lacks balance, a quality in many lagers that I do not care for. There is an abundance of flavor in this lager, citrusy hops and caramel malt with a nice dry finish. Best lager that I’ve had.

Amber colour, average head, light yeast and carmel aroma. Fizzy, with a smooth taste, but not much palate.

Golden to amber color with little aroma. Sharp lager taste, minimal malt backbone. Clean finish.

Poured from a tap. Clear golden color, small white head. Can?t smell anything, possibly because the order of wings beside me. Lots of wild yeast flavor.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 21, 2013
On tap at State Line. Pours a medium amber color with a frothy one finger head. Aroma is very nutty and toasty with slight hints of caramel. Rich, sweet malt taste at the beginning, with some noble hop bitterness coming through at the end. Biscuit, toasted grain, lemony citrus, caramel, and syrupy sweet flavors throughout. Nice clean medium body with ample carbonation.

Bottle from Harris Teeter. Golden amber pour with a small head. The nose is nice robust malts. Plenty of caramel and nut. Soft red apple. The taste is toasted grain, bread. More caramel-dipped red apple and nuts. Medium body, fine carbonation. A really nice vienna. Good malt presence. Not overbearing. Overall, great for what it is.
