aracauna (2994) - Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2003
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.

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.

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.
