PorterPounder (5340) - 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.

Draft to taster at the downtown brewpub. Looks decent; a transparent light copperish orange with off-white lacing. Smells of caramel and lager yeast with a bit of toastiness. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright.

GABF 2010 as Max Vienna. Pours a clear dull copper/ light orange with a thinning head. Aroma is diacetyl, butter, vanilla, marshmellow, toasted malts, light grass. Flavor is herbal, dusty crackery malts, toffee, biscuit, some flowery hops, with more butter and a touch of vanilla. Slight slick finish., Some off things here.
