j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 11, 2009
On tap at L’Amere a Boire. Pours a clear orange amber, with almost crimson highlights and a medium white head. Sweet, with a lot of toasted malt on the nose. Light sweetness in the body before moving to a light grainy bitter.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Tap at the Brewpub: Copper pour with a dense off white head. Aroma has some caramel, spicy German malt presence, and some bread crust character. Creamy feel with a firm malt accent in the flavor. Spicy Munich presence, along with a sweet bready/caramel note. Moderate bitterness balances the body. Smooth and easy session.

notalush (4823) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Medium amber, with a frothy, lasting head - a nice combination of fruit, caramel, grain/rye in the aroma - smooth, medium bodied, and lightly tart up front - gets a little sweet and bready, with some nice caramel flavor to it - the hops get stronger and more herbal near the finish, and the malts get more biscuity - a decent vienna.

[1454-20080531] Tap. Faint grainy aroma has a sweet background. Clear, amber brown body with no lasting head. Grainy sweet boozy yeast flavour. Medium body. Similar to the maibock but less boozy.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2008
Draught. At LaB. Clear amber pour, smallish off-white head. Pretty non-descipt aroma, light and biscuity, floral finish. The flavour though, ah, there ya go! - seemed fresh and biscuity, solid herbal hops, balance is the key, a fair bit of bitterness in the finish, but the malt is solid and toasty - really good. Light body, slightly soapy citrus zest mouthfeel - solid.

Gorbalev (2912) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Really mild aroma, slight malt, some hops. Dark yellow, thin white head. Great taste - crisp amber like hops, nice malt sweetness, great carbonation, very drinkable. Weak start, strong finish.

GregClow (2879) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2008
Draught at the brewpub. Orange-amber with a small head. Aroma is well-rounded, with sweet, fruity malt and herbal hops. Flavour is equally well-rounded and balanced, with a lingering herbal finish. Body is a bit thin, but OK. A well-made lager.

Glouglouburp (5977) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 23, 2007
In short: Superior Vienna. Smooth, round and very pleasant lager.
How: Tap (many times) at brewpub
The look: Clear amber body with a long-lasting small off-white head
In long: Soft, bready, round and smooth. Limited sweetness and timid aromatic hops leaves a lot of room for the lager yeast. The chewy malt brings a flavour of caramel with the sweetness removed (if such a thing even exists). Some wet grass. A good beer although it is below par considering the rest of lineup of this excellent brewpub. These guys are undoubtedly the masters of czech lagers and this Vienna is pretty much as good as they get but the Vienna style is rather constraining. I mean, there’s only so much Van Gogh could do with a Home Depot paint roller and a bucket of white paint.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Have had this one quite a few times, most recently on 9/28/07 at the brewery.
Dark for a vienna, with more a light brown colored body than the typical auburn or tan. Medium-sized beige head is well-retained, with light lacing left behind. High clarity.
Sweet munich and pale malts in the nose certainly give a full, malty aroma, as a good German lager should. Chocolate malt gives mostly color, but there’s a hint of light roast and dark chocolate, before the finish is transformed by the yeast and juicy, grassy hops. Authentic lager yeast crispness surfaces through the sweet malts and the fresh character of the yeast is endearing as well. Medium to medium-high strength of aroma, no flaws.
Quite sweet up front, but with a light breadiness from the munich malt lengthening the flavor and providing good transition in to the more dry, hopped and crisp finish. Some very sweet pale malt and light chocolate sticks to the back of the palate, and overall, this batch could be probably a bit more dry. But I applaud the relative lack of breadiness. Not as fruity as some viennas I’ve had, but just as supple and well-malted as the best German examples. Soft, grassy/floral hops with low bitterness. Fantastic stuff as usual from Lamere a boire.
