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.

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.

ChainGangGuy (4370) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Appearance: Clear, reddish-amber body with a thin, white head. Smell: Sweet-smelling, bready aroma with some mild, fleeting hints of caramel and fruit. Taste: Sweetish, bready malt profile with a hint of caramel cubes. Minor fruitiness. Incredibly faint hop character with almost no imparted bitterness. Drying finish with a final impression of sweet breadiness. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Lightly carbonated. Drinkability: First, the Gold was woefully undercarbonated, and now this. Again, a bump in effervescence would help this beer a great deal.

Tap. Light amber color. Nice malt, sweet aroma. Flavor of sweet malt. Very well balanced. Perfect flavors, perfect session. I LOVED IT.

Aurelius (4133) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2002
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.

hotstuff (4072) - 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.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. This was well loved by the only Englishman among us, for what it’s worth. Crystal amber pour, with decent carbonation but quite settled and sedentary looking. Decently aromatic malts with just a touch of spice to the nose. Body was medium, thinned out fairly quickly. Just flavorful enough to be inoffensive. Not flavorful enough to remember.

ben4321 (3867) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2013
Location: Draft at Max Lagers, 4/17/13

Aroma: The nose has some caramel, toast, a bit of spice, and some hops
Appearance: It pours a clear orange-amber color, with an off-white head, drippy lace
Flavor: The flavor is pretty good for the style, balanced, medium sweet and medium bitter
Palate: This is a clean and drinkable Vienna, with an average carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought that this was a pretty nice example of the style with a pretty good flavor profile to it. Another good house brew on this trip to Max Lagers.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Not so much red as much as dark yellow. Nutty, light aroma, a little buttery. Fizzy, cold (too cold). Metallic edge hits both the flavor and nose. Bitter finish. (on tap, downtown Atlanta location)
