mcberko (6272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
On tap at L’Amère à Boire, pours a clear orange amber with a large beige head. Aroma of herbal, spicy hops, bready malts and some fungal notes. Flavour is quite bready, lightly herbally, with some very subtle dry caramel. Very dry mouthfeel, with no harsh edges - solid, but bland.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2007
Small offwhite head. Orangey body. Light, spicy aroma. Dry pea and grass and resin aroma with roasty malty notes. Some dustiness. Beautifully harmonized. Dry mealy hoppy aftertaste. Beautiful session ber. Great! (0.133l draft.)

Rastacouere (6125) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2007 On tap: Apperance is a clear copper with a light off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt, honey and caramelic. Taste is caramel with hints at earth. Finish is dry, lightly hoppy and lightly acidic.

At last a very needed update on this. If you manage to catch it fresh and despite its consistency, one of the better batches, you’re in for a treat. An immensely drinkable, very fresh, bready, almost caramelly, but all in its gentle nutty, toasty munichs. Remarkable flowery, fresh, clean hoppiness. Superbly delicate hallertau. From 3.0 to 4.2!

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.

blankboy (6018) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2010
Draught at L’Amère à Boire. Pours a clear amber with a small diminishing creamy off-white head and good lacing on the glass. Mild aroma, a bit sweet, biscuity and lightly hoppy. Flavour of caramel malt, grain, wheat and German hops. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

Glouglouburp (5992) - 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.

TaktikMTL (5700) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2005
Verre à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de caramel et de fruité. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée orangée et on y dénote aucune bulle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’houblon et de caamel. La durée de l’arrière goût est courte. Palette: Le corps est mince et la texture est huileuse. L’effervescence en bouche est faible. Présence de sucre d’orge en arrière goût. (Rating #347)

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Draft. Pours an amber body with a white head. Light malty body with dry malt notes, a hint of oats, nuts, and almonds. Caramel and a noble hop bitterness. Nice offering.
