COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A slightly roasted malt gives it a light amber color. The rich flavor dominates the malt/hops balance and is very popular among most beer drinkers.

Bottle pour. I originally just bought this to have a bottle with the resealable top for homebrew purposes. Nothing to get excited about here.

Clear brown gold with white head. I have smelled something like this bt canít place it. Maybe old apples not quite to the point of smelling bad. The taste is nothing to write home about.little malty little sweet. The aftertaste is syrupy sweet.

Out of the swing top bottle. Aroma reminds me of a cheap wine because of a sweeter skunk smell. The appearance is a a dull light brown with hardly any head. The taste is skunky and ends with some malt. I taste no sign of hops. The palate is alright, with a funky aftertaste. Overall, this is a very european tasting beer that is very easy drinking if you are a hipster who does not care about fresh malt and hop flavor. The best thing about this beer is the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It pours a nice amber with not much of a head and very little lacing. The aroma is very faint and nothing really stands out. The flavor is very much the same. Itís clean but thatís about it. No flavors stand out but itís not dreadful. Just blah to me. Completely unmemorable and not recommended!

Clear, pale amber with a small head. Not much to it, sweet malt, water, and light grass. Boring.

Pours a very clear dark gold with small head and no lacing. Toasted malt with slight caramel. Mild lemon and pine hop notes. Lively carbonation. sticky mouth feel medium body. Brief malt finish. Nothing extremely exciting, but very drinkable.

Zymurgeist2 (941) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Out of a bottle. Pours a clear amber with nice enough head. The aroma is weird - almost showing an alcohol, but maybe more like band-aid. No real malt detectable. Taste is thin and uninteresting with the malt again not showing any of the Vienna characteristics.

kevnic2008 (7575) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2012
Grainy malt nose, with a light hint of grassy hops. Slightly bittersweet, with a grainy malt texture, light hints of caramel and toffee. Not very impressive.

Clear golden color. Fizzy sweet with bitter overtones and thick, bittery syrupy aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
