Not a whole lot to say. I liked it. No fruit undertones. I’m not that good. But the "average guy" would find this one quite quaffable.

Sampled on draft at the Monroeville PA location this beer poured a vibrant bright red-bronze color with a small white head. The aroma was light malts and floral hops. The flavor was a somewhat bland but smooth mix of light malts and crisp floral hops.

DYCSoccer17 (3513) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 27, 2004
On tap in Manchester, CT. slightly fruity yeast aroma. Hints of some apples in the nose. Transparent amber.copper color with no head dependant on bartender pour. Start is rather fruity. Hints of strawberry, bananas, and apple. Finish is slightly bitter and hopped. Citrusy orange hops to finish. This is good, but is it really a vienna? I don’t think so.
