Bottle---the pour finished with a large head. The color is a pale brown with lacing around the edge of the beer. Aroma was malt, caramel and sugar. The taste was the same with some candy like toffee, slight bitter taste in the finish. OK beer but it needs to get everything together to improve. Bruisin Ales 4.50

The smell on it is just a tad dirty to me. Pours a darker amber with some slight hints of red to it. Moderate head. Relatively unremarkable in taste; I don’t get much to it at all.

Bomber. Let me preface this by saying I am not a lager fan. No aroma that I like. Nothing that tweaks my palate. Need t stop trying lagers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Bomber. Clear, bight red color with a small white head. Touch of yeast and grain on the nose. Only a bit more malt sweetness than a pale lager and a similarly short finish. Not bad, but boring and not worth going back to.

Tasted at twin city taps. So so beer. They did hit a ruby colored lager but missed the taste it is just an unbalanced mess.

TURDFERGUSON (4045) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle at the local. This is what it is. Not the best vienna I have had but its better than most schwill. A tad overly corney and vegetable-ly at times. Not one I plan to revisit.

HopTsing (565) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2012
From the bottle poured a tea colored brew with a large head. Medium bodied with aromas and flavors of malt, butter, and tin can, with a barely noticable hop finish.

On tap @ Olde Hickory. Pours a dark orange appearance with an off white head. Graham cracker, toasted aroma. Bit of cracker. Kind of spicy. Slight diacetyl and butterscotch in the mouth. Caramel and toffee. Moderately sweet. Pass.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Draught. Pours amber with a small off-white head. The aroma is toast, raisin, and sage. The flavor is toasty and hay. Watery and uninteresting.
