NABA ’05: Copper, light sweet hoppy notes and a nice malty body.I would love to drink a pint of this. This makes me have fantasies about triple decoction marris otter lagers.

sonnycheeba (3592) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Tap. Pours clear, dark amber with thin, fizzy off-white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is mostly mute with notes of caramel, bread malt, light pear, floral hops, and figs. Flavor is cereal and caramel malts forward with some floral hops and subtle fruit esters; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 20, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Light copper amber in color with a thin off white head. Aroma is a sweet doughy caramel, but not strongly pronounced. Carbonation level is high making the beer have an unpleasanrt palate when coupled to the thin body. Drinkable, but not memorable.

mansquito (3444) - 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).

Aubrey (3442) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2003
Bottle: Clear and deep amber with a tinge of copper. Head almost completely disappeared, but it had a lively carbonation. Malts were very bready, grainy and husky. Minuscule amount of sweetness. Finished with a healthy amount of dry bitterness. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Not too bad, though it did seem a little unbalanced.

alexanderj (3318) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Bottle courtesy of golubj; poured an orange amber, small quick diminishing head. Aroma was nice with caramel, toffee and bread. Flavor was of toasted malt, caramel and a slight hop hint. Good mouthfeel; somewhat creamy.

theisti (3256) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUL 11, 2011
4 oz taster draft at the brew pub in Dillon, Colorado. The pour is a clear golden, with a smallish off white head. Aroma is not much, maybe a hint of sweet malt. Taste is lightly clean malt sweetness, some nice floral, even a touch of lemon in the back. Much more flavor than I was expecting from the soft nose. Palate is thin to medium, coats mouth a touch, the after taste lingers some. Overall a tasty Amber Lager.

Pours a nice amber color. Nice sweet malt nose with a hint of hops. Taste is caramel, with mild hops and a touch of fruit.

BelgianBeerGal (3201) - 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.
