Fatehunter (1381) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Pours a thin head on a cloudy medium straw colored body. The aroma is spicy biscuits and lemon. Really nice. The taste is sweet upfront with a sour middle and finish. I’m not sure if it’s intended to be sour... After a few more drinks I find it difficult to continue to consume. A bad batch? The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. I’ll wait a year or two to try again.

JDBaker11058 (1358) - Maryland, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Appearance: lightly hazy orange brown, with a short light khaki head. Aroma: malty cereal and caramel, with earthy, slightly musty hops, and hot cardboard. Taste: sweet caramel malts, with some minerality, loamy hops, and a bit of balsamic vinegar. Finish: ended with a surprising bit of sour, tangy funk, completely atypical for the style. Notes: Not very good.

Lagerboy (1324) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2013
Bomber. Unclear orange copper, creamy off-white head lasts, leaving messy definitive stepped lacing. Aroma is muted sweet malt, citric. Sour lemon citrus, mild sweet caramel malt taste. Soft carbonation, lighter bodied, low hopped. Buttery slick citric finish. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

19Ei8hty (1171) - Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Copper tinted body. Some caramel and toast. Doughy and a bit sour. Really not much to say about this one.

HighlanderOne (1024) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2012
Poured from big bottle. Aroma of raisin, molasses, vanilla cake. Opaque amber, beige head. Flavor surprisingly off - sour apple, white wine, roasted malt. Metallic and bitter. Drain pour.

highibus (736) - Vail, Arizona, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Nice amber color with thin head. Nice hop aroma with a balance of malt that is really nice.

J_man (734) - Tustin, California, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Sour bready aroma. Light amber/yellow color with a small but persistent white head. Sour flavor follows into the taste and not in a good way. There’s a bit of caramel sweetness and toasted bread, but the pungent sour flavor dominates. I’m not sure if I got an infected bottle or not, but this is not to style for a Vienna ale.

osu97gp (663) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Pours a hazy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is very faint and of malts. Flavor is sweet malts, bread, and light fruit. A strange tart/sour finish.

michaelinwa (612) - Bothell, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Pours golden color, low head, aroma is light malt. Flavor is crisp clean malt, not sweet not thin. There is some hop bitterness and just a touch of malt complexity in there to keep make this a reasonably satisfying beer. Among lagers, this works for me pretty well, and I would buy it again.

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2014
22oz bomber pours a hazy brownish amber color with a medium off white head with light lacing. Smells of toasted nuts, lemon and toffee. Tastes sweet but a little tart as well. Seems off or slightly infected. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation. I had a hard time finishing this. I’ll have to taste the next batch to make a true review.
