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.

mansquito (3255) - 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).

Beaver (1264) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange-brown with a small fizzy head that quickly disappears.

The aroma is earthy malts and sweet caramel with a touch of spicy hops.

The flavor is rather bland. It has some sweet watery malts up front with a bit of a spicy lightly bitter finish. The flavors become more apparent as it warms. The mouthfeel is medium bodied but watery.

Overall, a nice, albeit run of the mill, beer.

Steve_0 (2532) - 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.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - JUL 3, 2007
The 12 ounce bottle poured a flat-but-clear orange-amber colored beverage with a small, creamy, white head that was mostly diminishing but that left good lacing on the glass. The aroma had a light, sweet and fruity fragrance to it. There were notes of caramel with a very light floral hop backdrop. The body was medium with a soft carbonation and a creamy, smooth texture. The flavor started out sweet and stayed that way through the medium-long finish. There was even a slight alcohol warmth in the chest.

alexanderj (3297) - Gilbert, Arizona, 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.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2007
Draft at the brewery. Copper color with white head. Not much in the aroma department-- some faint maltiness and underlying bitterness. Flavor is mild caramel malt with some crisp hop bitterness in the finish. A bit watery throughout. Not bad at all, very drinkable, but not a knockout.

bleeng (1496) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2009
12 oz bottle purchased from the brewery. No freshness or ABV markings. Bronze/light gold color-very little head. Nose is honey, metallic, hay. Taste is light grass, a bit alcoholic (!), malt flavors are subdued and very little hop aroma. Nice body for a lager and easily quaffed. Well done-wish I had a few more of these.
