brokensail (9938) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Amber pour with a khaki head. Nose is sweet bread and toasted malt, a bit of cardboard, some orange peel, and an interesting fruity character. Esters, perhaps? Tastes of caramel, bread, and toast. Some cardboard, orange peel, grass, and sweet fruits. Just kind of sweet and not much else going on.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 28, 2011
22oz bottle: Pours a clear orange bronze with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet grainy malty nose with a hint tart fruits and noble hops. Starts with average fullness and light malty sweetness with a good balance of bittering hops before a drier finish. Might have a slight infection going on, but it’s showing up more in the nose than the body.

Ibrew2or3 (6523) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 3, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. It pours a rich looking clear amber with lasting light tan foam ring. I see nice lacing too. The aroma is light with roasty to sweet malts. The taste starts with light and fresh malts that become increasingly maltier and accented by spice to floral hops. The initial taste is fresh crisp pale malts followed by roasty malts and a bread note with drops of caramel. The hops intercede for a while and fade a bit but add balance into the after taste.

marcus (6017) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours copper with a rocky beige head and a sourish toffee aroma. There is a chewy caramel malt flavor that has a slightly sour grassy taste and a dry finish. It’s a little bit off.

after4ever (5931) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Great little session beer. Comes out cloudy and somewhat grainy, color is something of a buttery amber. Yeasty, bready nose. A little bit of doughy-smelling malt in there. Nice medium body with active carb, feels very refreshing right from the start. Very light bready taste all over the mid-palate, with some light nutty and grainy notes for very low-contrast accent. Some herbal hop pops up just for a second near the finish (as well as on the belch). Must’ve been a fresh keg, or this one just has an appeal that’s impossible to describe, because these notes, to me, don’t sound like they describe a very appealing beer. But I’ll definitely be getting this one again.

Never been the biggest vienna fan but this was decent .. . light tan .. medium foam head, dies down a bit- light lacing .. . light malts, breakfast syrup also .. . pretty simple, but nothing offensive either .. . . Let’s kick some names and take some ass.

PorterPounder (5196) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Tampa, FL - Total Wine - 22 oz bomber. Pleasant light copper colored pour with a thin light white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a small trace of lacing. A bit of a malty aroma uponing opening but fades quickly. Hard to pin down the flavor - a little bit of caramel sweetness - but slightly artificial, some ripening vegetable notes. Mouthfeel is a bit "off" - overall - had much better Viennas.
