keanex (1493) - 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.

can8ianben (1341) - Souderton, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2012
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 (6277) - Newark, New Jersey, 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 (2879) - 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 (3816) - 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.

stephenj007 (110) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Bottle pour is copper red/brown, just a touch of haze, with a thin tan head that quickly dissipates to a ring. Pleasant aromas of sweet malts, a bit of grass and pine nuts. Carbonation was fizzy and soft. Flavors were very good, mild roasted nuts, brown sugar, quality malts and a bit of mild spice. Very minimal hops presence. Finish was smooth and satisfying. I like this beer, and could easily finish off another one in short time. Overall a very good quality brew of this style, that I enjoyed alot.

Aurelius (4322) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Clear, brown-amber with a beady head. Label is a psychedelic album cover - reminiscent of Sgt. Pepper meets Led Zeppelin. A light toasted soy nut aroma. Dry, toasty/roasty, slightly nutty, an unusual beer. Itís like a well-done vienna with a shot of porter. Not terribly complex, but you could drink a mess of these. Itís got character, and dark notes, but it isnít clingy. ABC, Betton Rd.

Drake (8779) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2010
12 ounce bottle from the spring sampler. Pours a hazy burnt orange/copper color with a medium offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts, chocolate. Taste is bitter hops, apricots, chocolate, caramel, toasted malts, apple. Medium bodied. Decent beer.
