ClarkVV (5232) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2007
2006 bottle from Engelsmann drunk on 12/2/06
Very light for a vienna. Only tinges of copper and auburn throughout mostly an orange-amber body. Usual small, but dense and creamy off-white head sits well atop. Light lacing and high clarity with large bubbles drifting lazily upwards.
Thick honey and sweet dough in the nose, backed by a bit of orange and tart cherry. Growing almost astringently spicy and letting up on the smooth sweetness. Cinnamon-like, almost. Medium strength of aroma, with no alcohol or brewing flaws. The grains are well-extracted but while I’m no stickler for style, the dry spiciness and odd fruity-honeyish malts just come across strangely and don’t seem to correctly balance or complement the malts.
Very sweet for a vienna, not surprisingly, being from Nils Oscar. More phenolic-like cinnamon and/or nutmeg that really almost reminds me of a Belgian ale. But watery, also, which seems to be a recurring theme from Nils Oscar. Undercarbonated and what is there is loose. I understand it’s not easy to bottle lagers, but this needs crispness very badly. Grainy, lightly hay-like hops are lost to the strong malt sweetness. No alcohol noted.

Bottle. Clear amber with a medium head. Complex aroma promising milk chocolate, toffee,and a hint of raisins. The taste delivers the same with good balancing bitterness. A beer worthy of a "kalas".

[2nd Low Countries RateBeer meeting] Heavy aroma of hops and malts. Clear, amber coloured with an off-white, medium head. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty with fresh hops. Medium body. Not impressive.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2003
Thanks to omhper I had the opportunity to taste this wonderfully brewed beer. Sadly enough it isn't really my kind of beer. The aroma has hopflowers and malt in it. Light brown color, beige almost creamy head, very good lace. Light bitter first and soon more bitter, hint of caramel. Very hopbitter and dry finish.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 9, 2007
330 ml bottle. Small filmy tan head over a bright reddish brown body. Aroma is herbal and floral hops, cream-caramel with some vague scents of acidic fruits. Bready, caramelish and quite hoppy taste. Medium body, smooth and dry palate. Lingering hops from start to end. Nils Oscar is my man!

sayravai (4706) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 1, 2006
(Draught) Clear amber color with a medium, foamy and slightly tanned head. Caramely, slightly roasty, neutral aroma with sourish-vineous hints. Caramely-malty flavor with aromatic, piney hopping. Medium-bodied, slightly slicky-vinous palate with smooth carbonation. A nicely hoppy, neutral and balanced brew. Could be fuller, but suits the style.
