Bottle. Clean slightly sweet malt aroma with a touch of grass. Copper colored with a thin, mostly diminishing white head. Clean malty flavor with a light mouthfeel and a quick dry finish. Enough hops for balance without showing up in the flavor. Thin and easy to drink, kind of like a slightly less flavorful Point Classic Amber.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Pours a reddish amber color with thin white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma is quite malty with a taste that follows. Slightly bitter finish and a lighter body.

Had this one bottled. Nice, deep amber color with a very thin head, quite clear, fairly simple but what Vienna Red isn’t? I liked it.

BBB63 (6038) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2005
Bottle and served in my SN pint glass:

A light amber hue with an initial fizzy head which fades to a small ring and left some lace. The aroma has notes of grain and pale malt with a dash of caramel. Some buttered bread and very mild fruit esters as well. The taste is rather straight forward but enjoyable. You get some acidic fruits and light bitters with that sweet and bready malt base. The finish is rather short but some lingering caramel flavor does stay around. The feel is lively enough and very lightly astrengent. I have had better but also far worse, a quaffable brew all things told.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Clear coppery/amber color, with no head at all. Aroma, sweet, amlty, light graininess, minimal hops. Grainy on the palate, as well, but overall clean and smooth. Light bodied, but not thin, flavor, and it’s not a bad one, remains sip after sip, gulp after gulp. Not bad at all. A tasty little lager, when you’re not in the mood for anything more challenging. Good crossover brew, for the less adventurous.

This is the best beer that I have ever had. This beer is better than any commen Pilsner.

whiskeyfairy (27) - Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2005
Poured from a bottle with a pretty clear amber/copper color. There wasn’t much for aroma. I detected some sort of sweet flavor to it under all the maltiness... possibly a caramel taste??? Palate seemed a little sticky leaving my mouth somewhat unsatisfied. Overall though i wouldn’t mind trying it again.

This is a good solid beer that can somethmes be a little watery. It has an average amount of bitterness, but not overpowering. The only thing lacking in this beer is that it may be a little to light.

On tap at the Metrodome. Very light malt aroma. Light red. Flavors of malt and citrus. Heavily carbonated and sour.
