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.

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2011
Lighter brown coloured beer with some little carbonation and a short white head. Light malty hinted aroma; Very smouth medium palate. Finish is light bitter malty with some short spicy hints. Not bad.

b3shine (5844) - Indiana, USA - NOV 21, 2013
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.

aracauna (3139) - 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.

ChainGangGuy (4422) - 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.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2010
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.

RobertDale (3710) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Sample at brewpub. Comes copper with a small white head. Mild aroma of malt and spice. Taste is malt, grain, spice and a bit of hops. A bit thin. Decent.

Easy drinking but a little light for the style. Smooth and creamy palate with a malty finish. OK for the style
