Dark amber/light brown pour with a minimal head. Aroma holds toast, chestnut, grain, and a touch of caramel. Flavor is comparable, with more sweet malt, caramel, and cereal grain. Palate is fairly light, with a bit of sweet and toasty bitterness to it. Meh overall.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2010 The shame is in how beautiful the appearance and the aroma are. Leather malt nose. Deep amber, good head. Malty satisfaction, all the way around. Yes, that means 360• Degrees. Malty taste. Only a little bit of hops.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - FEB 17, 2010
Deep amber hue with a nicely sized, well proportioned beige head. The lacing is actually quite beautiful. The aroma is grainy with notes of cereal, caramel malt, and a slight hop bitterness. The flavor is much more robust and full than the aroma would suggest. Sweet caramel malt, and further proliferations of the cereal grains make up the malt component, while a subtle spicy hop character rounds out the bittering. The palate is is medium in its body with some astringency and full pillowy carbonation.Tasty, but not out of the ordinary.

My initial thought on the first sip was "pungent!" But after having a couple, it started to grow on me. There’s a grassy scent to the brew. Taste is fairly well-balanced. Slight hoppy bitterness at the front that gets smoothed away by the malts at the end. It’s very easy to drink and certainly interesting. Pretty solid overall.

Pours light amber into a lager glass. White head recedes to hug rim. Sour caramel aromas. Astringent with sweet fruit upfront turning to a dry sour caramel finish.

Orange pour, tiny whit head. Bready scent. Meh, not much here, bready malty taste. Guess you could pound a few back is a plus.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Rich cognac color and lumpy parchment foam. Huge bready nose spiked with pear preserves and cilantro. Lychee? Smoke? Outrageous, deep nutty malt flavor with black coffee notes. I’m impressed that it is appropriately malty and not mired by sweet/caramelly crystal malts. Balanced hops provide an artful counterpoint. Medium-light body, chewy texture. Finishes with a gentle earthy bitterness and a slightly dirty cherry-scented pipe tobacco aftereffect. The rest of y’all are crazy, this is a pretty nice Vienna.

Finhead (1589) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2010
A hazy amber pour with off-white head. It has a nutty malt aroma with some smoke and cardboard lingering in the back. The taste mildly sweet up front, but finishes dry and bitter with a somewhat rotten taste. It has a medium body and sticky texture.

12oz bottle (2010) into a pint glass. The pour is clear brown with a small white head. The aroma is burnt caramel and seltzer water. The flavor is very similar.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2010
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, nuts, oak leaves, light bread, and slight smoke. Poured orange/amber in color with a small, off-white head that diminished but lasted around the edges only. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Ok lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malt, nuts, slight cocoa, light bread, oak leaves, slight caramel, and a hint of smoke. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, nut, and slight caramel finish is dry.
