A sandy head doesn’t last long over a bright amber body. Malted aroma to be sure, starting sweet with a hint of non-deScript fruitiness yet finishing with a drier grain profile. Malted flavor, bittersweet, with a nice body. Finishes with a hint of sourness.

Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma is yeast bread and caramel. Flavor is sweet and malty, earthy and grainy, with a hint of bitterness.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Appearance: ruby and garnet under an off-white head both thick and smooth with lace along the sides. Fades with a thin film lingering in the middle. Swirls bubbly.
Nose: apple mush – flesh than skin and starting to turn brown from sitting out in the open air. Moss and hay bales in back. NondeScript dry crunchy breads in the back. A tad musty and dusty.
Palate: apples – sweet flesh than bitterness of the skins. Cinnamon sticks, twigs, and dried old bread underneath. Dried apple skins in the back. Hint of staleness along the edges.
Final Thoughts: a marginal amber lager in a market of mostly marginal amber lagers. While quite possibly on its way south, the beer itself was still okay. Nothing to write home about and nothing to remember though certainly not a drain pour.

wxman (1613) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Pours an orange/amber color with a big fluffy yellowish-white head. Aroma is sweet bread dough with a hint of hop flowers. Sweet malty taste with notes of maple syrup, roasted malt, and some slight hop bitterness. I’ll have to go along with everyone else here. This is nothing special, but it is clean, tasty, and refreshing.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Aroma was a grainey malt , light attractive amber color, mild malt with a slight tartness to it, some bitterness on the swallow crispness of a lager,as a Vienna it should have a little toastiness or carmel taste ,lite body. Pretty much the standard for this brewery,light bodied thirst quenchers

Bottle. Average beer all the way. Poured a lighter amber color with a white head. The head did last for a little while. Left some lacing on the side of the bottle. Aroma was candy sugar, dark malts, caramel, and yeast. Flavor was thin and watery. Yeast and sugar flavors in the finish. Nothing that special.

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.

It appears I’m going with the average. This beer was a little tough for me to put my finger on. At times like a (pale) ale, at times an amber quality came out and it seemed more lagery. Anyhow, not much hops. "Toasted" and "bready" are quite adequate deScriptors as illinismitty wrote. Pretty clean beer.
