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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Thin and slightly sweet. I like a little more body in the vienna style. This is not for the beer geek

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very little head with a nice copper color. The aroma is slight caramel malt. The flavor is very low bitterness, sof, a little sweet. Too bland to really excite but no real flaws and easily drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fruit-juicy, sweet aroma. Sweet, tart and clean without a whole lot of hopping. Reminded me of sloe plums that I used to eat as a kid. A bright orange-red.
