ClarkVV (5861) - Boston, 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.

TorbenJensen (1464) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2015
Very nice and welcoming crest of this Swedish vienna. It has a nice sweet flavor with slight flower and lots of malt and hops. The taste is slightly sweet, but only briefly occur quickly hopped bitter taste which is renewable. It may not have quite the malted Viennese flavor as I expected, but tastes rather, as a well-made luxury lager with a small IPA touch.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Courtesy of oh6gdx. <!-- P --> The aroma features orange zest, mild spice, toasty caramel malt. Body is a ruddy brown and holds a lazy white head that starts small and gets smaller in a hurry. Fore holds medium hop bitterness. Watery feel and flavor. Tastes mostly of watered down malt and steeped hops. really bottoms out flavor wise in the middle and finish. Dissapointing beer from a good brewery.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 7, 2007
The color is beautiful like dark amber and the head is nice. The aroma is malty with notes of flowers. The flavour has notes of malt, flowers, a bit of fruit, caramel and a nice bitterness. The body is nice and full, and it’s a very refreshing beer, ideal for an Easter lunch. 1989
