beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Draft, Ambery coppery clear pour. Malty bready aroma, and I got a lot of ’tea’ smells. Caramel malt flavors with a touch of acidity and a light bready and medium bitter finish.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Clear copper body with a tight but dissipating off-white head. Malty aroma of bread crusts, iced tea, and subdued earthy hops. Flavor is well-balanced with a pleasant malt character, light acidity and sweetness, and moderate bitterness. Medium body compliments the subdued malty richness in the body and is not at all cloying. I enjoyed a pint of this and could easily drink a few without tiring. Solid Vienna.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2005
Tap, downtown Atlanta. Pale orange-red hue / white head. Spicey hops, light caramel malt, apples. Lightly sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly bitter finish. Cardboard. Medium-light body, watery texture, moderate carbonation. The bottom line is: nothing special...moving right along...

PorterPounder (5547) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Had on tap at their Buford location. Pours a light copper with a nice foamy off-white head and excellent lacing. Sweet maple syrup-like aroma. Flavor has some caramel notes with a wee bit of honey sneaking in the back door. Maple syrup notes come through in the flavor as well. Decently thick mouthfeel. Very good.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2004 Copper in appearance with a small (if any) head. Light caramel aroma with a sour, tangy, lemon-like taste. Tasted a bit like dirty dishwater, yummy.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2004
This was just a very okay beer. Very typical, yet true to the style. Pours a deep clear amber color with some small tan head and light, sparse lacing. Mouthfeel is very thin, but has some good roasted, nutty malt characteristics. This is definitely all it has to offer, it becomes very boring to drink and finish.

Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - APR 29, 2004
Thin and slightly sweet. I like a little more body in the vienna style. This is not for the beer geek

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2003
Draft at Max Lager's in downtown Atlanta. This beer had a small sized tan head with fine-large bubbles that was mostly lasting. There was no carbonation observed and the body was transparent with a red hue. The nose was malty, sweet and spicy with a light hoppy and mild spice taste to it. The mouthfeel was smooth, thin and watery. This was a light bodied beer with good lacing. This beer lacks character, flavor and it was a rather boring beer to drink and rate.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 15, 2003
TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 20. This draft brew was enjoyed at the brewery in Atlanta Georgia. This brew poured a medium sized head of mostly lasting fine to large sized light brown colored bubbles that left behind a good lace and a transparent red brown colored uncarbonated body. It had a very mild red malt aroma. The mouthfeel was thin flat, old and uncarbonated. The flavor was also thin with only a slight red malt flavor to it. It vas very one-dimensional.
