mansquito (3354) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Arapahoe Basin, tap: Pours amber/brown with an off-white head. Aroma is lightly roasted malts, caramel, lager-smell, hops, and a teenth of fruitiness. Taste is mostly similar. Slightly sweet, but nothing close to cloying. Nice underlying hop taste. Well-balanced and easy to drink (especially after a day of skiing).

Stopped in on my way home from Breckenridge. Have to say their food is dynamite! I had to drive so only ordered 1 beer, which was this. Poured a deep amber color, nose of caramel, nuts, and maybe some fruits. It was really malty for a lager, but rather enjoyable. The nose almost nailed the flavors on the palate. Cannot say I have ever had a lager like this, but it was good!

Steve_0 (2605) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Tap at the brewery. Pour is amber with a fluffy white head and good lacing. Smell is nice spice, banana, bread, caramel, earth, and light hops. Taste is bread, malt, light caramel, a hint of banana, and spice. Mouthfeel is somewhat watery with medium carbonation. Very smooth and highly drinkable. Another pleasant surprise from Dillon.

BelgianBeerGal (3140) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Draft at the brewery while dining sans kiddos. Sometimes Viennas can get a little boring but this is not one of those times. Nice, sweeter malt character. Good.

arminjewell (6158) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Pour on tap is slight orange with thin white head, aroma brings notes of some slight caramel, hints of earth, grass in there but a touch of buttery diacetyl in there. Taste brings the diacetyl to mix with caramel and biscuit notes, hints of grass, finishes fairly dry but slightly sweet.

Bottle. Friend brought this back from their trip to Colorado. Of the 3 dam beers they brought back, this was the worst. Poured a golden color with a smaller white head that went rather quick. Aroma was sweet malts, corn and metallic flavors. Very thin and watery body. Not a whole lot to this one. Some caramel flavor in the finish.
