RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Lovely light amber color with good lacing. Flavor and aroma are pretty uninspiring. Tight aroma of non-descript malts. Don’t get much chestnut out of this; maybe a little bit in the flavor. Pretty standard, mediocre beer.

Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Pours a orange/amber color. Aromas of malts/caramel, sweet smelling. Sweet flavors of caramel with some hops/fruit.

mmmbeer (1375) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 17, 2008
750 mL bottle in trade from RCL, I think... thanks! Served in shaker- after a week from the 7th layer of hell and being in a place with laughable beer selections (they’re coming, trust me), I thought I would unpack this one, put it on ice and see what happens. Poured transparent tan copper very low carbonation (the cork was tight, must be how it is), no head. Aroma of wheat, nuts, and ginger (?). Hits the mouth with a thin body, malt is there but alot of water in the way, a very slight note of sweetness in the middle, finish has a very slight hope note. More like a lager, definately not a vienna. Interesting that it’s made in Corsica, but that’s about all in it’s appeal.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Intriguing brownish orange-gold with a quickly dissipating head. Mild, grainy, nutty, slightly toasty aroma. Those aspects are repeated verbatim in the flavor--with the addition of a touch of malt sweetness. No hops character. Very thin, watery mouthfeel. Little of interest here, aside from the fact that it’s brewed on Corsica.

Quevillon (2811) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2008
Bu au Festival Bièr et Saveur 08 (31/8), en bouteille au kiosk Univin. Blonde miel, pas de collet. Arome de meil malté, une peu de grains d’orge. Goût d’orge malté sec, un peu d’amerturme avec une petit touche d’agrume. Après les deux dernières, je m’attandais à pas grand chose mais c’est bien!

piscator34 (2271) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 13, 2008
Bottled sample. Pale orange in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas of sulfur, stale pale malts, nuts, and (unfortunately) a bit of vomit. Flavors are only slightly better with notes of pale malt, mild spice, and a bit of caramel. Qutie watery on the palate. A very poor vienna.

Clear amber beer with a fair sized slightly off white head. Sweet smell with hints of caramel and nuts. Similar flavour with a bit of a Bitter bready finish. Not bad.
