Scent of burnt caramel. Pours a deep reddish brown. Malty sweetness with a smoked bitter offset. If my eyes were closed I would swear that this was a stout. Residual smokiness with a slight tart taste.

Reminds me of autumn. Good color. Smell of wheat. Good brew overall. Would enjoy more in fall.

Malty aroma with a dark orange coloration. Some foam and lacing. Malty flavor with a hint of chocolate in the aftertaste.

keanex (1740) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Pours a cloudy dark amber, slightly red. Head was a medium sized slightly tan colored, which disappeared rather fast, but the beer retains a small layer and lacing.

Smells earthy, hoppy, and slightly malty. Hops seem to be most present.

Tastes malty with a caramelish hint. Hops are present, but not overbearing.

More carbonated than your average beer, medium bodied beer.

Decently drinkable, more suited towards hop heads.

Richly malty and sweet for a lager. Lots more flavor than I expected. Pours an amber brown with a thin head. Flavor jumps when the beer warms.

blipp (7902) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Cask. Pours amber with a thin head. A hint of floral spicy hops in the aroma with a touch of sweetness. The flavor has a bready malty base, and floral hops. A light earthy note as well. Very well balanced and clean tasting.

Cask. Pours an amber body with a thin bubbly white lacing. Bread y, cracker malts, light floral hoppiness with a sweet berry like sweetness. Nice for magic hat, decent overall.

LinusStick (3186) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Delicious beer! I love a good Vienna! Aroma was so so. Usual lager aroma with not much else to it. Pour was a beautiful medium brown with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was nice. Roasted malt with a delicious strong roasted caramel aftertaste that lingers. Heavy carbonation that chews the cheeks- very nice.

nearbeer (4728) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 25, 2010
12oz. Foggy caramel-red with a small but persistent film of foam. Mild nose of spicy grain and toffee-apple. Tastes of peppery grain - almost like rye, woody grass, light cinnamon-apple, caramel and a hint of ginger. Some toasted nut (with the bitter shell) in the finish. Near-medium body is smooth and hop-tingly.
