Bottle. Reddish dark copper with offwhite head. Aromas of caramel, cinnamon, honey, flowers, cereal, apple, grass, baby powder. Flavors of caramel, spice, toast, sourdough, rock candy. Fantastic aroma. Medium-thin body with silky mouthfeel and moderate, soft carbonation.

Pours red-orange with light lacing. Aromas of roasted malts and candied sugar. Palate is medium-bodied with low carbonation and sweet, candied sugar, malts and fruit. By fruit, I mean it reminds me of those gummy candies with sugar coating. But not in a bad way. Tasty beer, for what it is.

NIce looking brew, coppery red-brown, clear with a tinge of haze. Tan, foamy head, but quickly thins to nothing. Slightly nutty aroma with a bit of fall spice. Noticeable malts, very light roast. Smooth like I would expect a Vienna style to be, quality malts, a bit of hops up front, with a lightly sweet, rock candy finish. Very light carbonation. Vienna brews have always been a favorite of mine. This is a nicely done craft brew, but I am usually expecting something from Magic Hat that tends to push the limits of beer styles to the edge.....there was no rabbit in this hat. Overall though, it was a very drinkable and enjoyable brew, true to the style.

MrBunn (2588) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours a thickish orange/dark amber with a small head and heavy aromas of malt, grain dust and dark honey. Flavor is very sweet... apple juice concentrate, honey, dough... Not much else going on that I’m inclined to comment on, but I like this one.

glennmastrange (2445) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Bottle. Moderate straw for the malt, herbs for the hops and musty for the yeast, with hints of cola, paper and a bit of spice. Head is small, frothy/fizzy, slightly off-white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling with dense fine bubbles, clear amber/orange. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation and a fairly dry finish. It doesn’t have the sweetness I expected from a Vienna, but it still a pretty good drinking beer.

Dezzilu (226) - Whitmore Lake, Michigan, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Poured a nice copper color with wispy white head. Aroma was mild, but contained hints of brown sugar. In the mouth the mildness continues however the sweetness showed in the aftertaste. Overall, more than just a ho-hum beer from a company with great marketing.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2010
(Sample Date: 9/3/2010 Source:Other) Pint at Bottoms Up Pizza. Aroma is non-existent other than a bit of citrusy hops. Clear amber copper with no head. Very sweet. Clean with a light citrus hop character. Kind of a pale ale but maybe on a lager yeast and seems very under attenuated.

jmulv (336) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Medium bodied, big on the malts, grainy taste as well. Tastes a bit watery as well. Not their best effort.

mar (5027) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2010
deep amber with a ring of cream froth. bready malts, sweet caramel, slight hops, more caramel. decent palate, caramel, bread, super sweet finish, light bitterness.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Fairly uninteresting and uninspiring. A boring malt character leads to a grainy astringent sharpness and further notes of blah. Thin palate with a clean finish.
