Martyn (15) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2005
The first beer to be brewed by this historic brewery when it set up as a service station refreshing Knights and Merchants passing along the ancient Venice - Vienna trade route. Only available on draught, this reminds me of a full-bodied early evolution of Dreher’s Viennese brew. Sweet and hoppy with deep roasted and caramelised malty undertones. Heaven

KyotoLefty (5894) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 22, 2010
Draught in the cafe next to the Vienna City Hall. Quite dark Amber color, with a nice head. I wasn’t expecting a Vienna lager. It has a slightly malty aroma, but not a very strong one. It has a malty, slightly caramelly taste though not really sweet. Sightly burnt, dry, and hoppy. It’s very interesting. Dry, slightly burnt finish. It’s a really great beer, similar to the SiebenStern Maerzen. I had never seen beer quite like this from a major brewery here. Love it.

VertBaconStrips (2021) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 20, 2012
Nice bold amber brew with a very thin head. A gentle swirl of the glass made a beautiful medium tan tight and glistening head. Sweet caramel, toasty goodness, dates and maybe a dull spiceless pumpkin. Great flavours here - I think I’d drink this style more if this was available. Of note - actually drinking this after a short visit to the freezer. Sweet bold caramel toasty stuff, light tang just before the finish, very malty, mild mild spice, ya. Well carbonated, good attentive mouthfeel. Thankfully CBC is playing classic NHL games tonight! My bum itches

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2007
This pours a rich orange body with a slender head that does some sporadic lacing. The aroma is a sweet, wort-like smell with a bit of caramel added. The flavor is very sweet, too much so for me, and I’d like it a lot more if that was cut somewhat by some additional hops. As is, there’s only a very modest earthy bitterness to it. The finish is malty sweet and sticky.

armando629 (2381) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 27, 2008
Amber color, small and delisicious beige head what dissappears quickly. Some roasted malt aroma with a bit fruity perfume. Roasted malt flavour with a little hoppy taste, sweety chocolate and caramell, some fruity taste. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice, drinkable one.

Clear amber color, to the more darker side. Aromas of bread,yeast. Crisp taste of bread and yeast. Earthy tone with some dry hops at the end. Some brown sugar hints. Nice beer, but not my style.

On tap in Bologna. Crisp and dry beer, palate cleaning, a good refreshment. Geenrously hopped, a pronounced flowery aroma and a bitter finish.
