It pours a beautiful transparent reddish brown. Aroma is not strong but invitingly malty and spicy. Flavor is rich and malty, with hoppy hints and a touch of cinnamon.

jbruner (2418) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pours a clear copper on tap with nice fluffy tan head that displays to leave light lace. Aroma of nice bready grain and lager crispness. Taste is more toward the fruity esters of the yeast, nice and clean. Well done for the style, easy.

From tap at the brewpub, 5%. Pours clear and golden orange with a small off white head. Aroma is fruity, light toasted malty and caramelish. Fruity, peachy and mild citrusy. Bitter and crisp hoppy 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.

ben4321 (4066) - 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.

PorterPounder (5654) - 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.

Reddish pour, creamy head. Malty caramel up front finished by some cereal grains and light citrusy hops.
