Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a small off white head. The aroma is a bready malt and caramel. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet hop flavor and light bitter finish. Easy to drink a good vienna from Rahr.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Schlafly 2012 Repeal Fest. Well guess after a number of good beers in a row at a fest I was bound to have one I didn’t like. This pours clear amber with a small beige head. The aroma has a modest amount of toast, some diacetyl, some nuttiness and a off sourness. Medium / light body with modest carbonation. The taste has nutty toasty malt with some medicinal characteristics. The finish has some spicy hops and a bit of caramel and just a touch of butter. Fair vienna.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft sample at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival 2012. Pours a nice reddish-amber with a finger of off-white head. The aroma and flavor are pretty bland- no hop character at all, some light caramel and amber malts, a little toast and cereal- just not much to it. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Nothing offensive here, just weak.

Red it is, well sorta. Lots of caramel malt taste without being overly sweet and some hop bitterness at the end.

Good Ale. Has a smooth start with a finish that is not to strong, but you remember you just has a beer.

I had this at "the Back Porch" in Grapevine in a bottle. Brown color, it’s a medium-bodied beer, malty taste, and bitter aftertaste, really good. It’s a chameleon of styles.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a darker amber with an average off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and roast. Taste is malt, caramel, nuts, and some hops. A bit thin. Not exciting but very drinkable.

bottled as Buffalo Butt-Im going against the grain on this one-this is a fine example of this very under looked style that im saying is one of the better versions brewed in this country. pours dark copper with a small off-white soapy head. nose of caramel malt qualities (sweet, lite husky notes), lite lager yeast twang and some faint spicy hops. flavors exhibit the earthy, grainy amber malt qualities. this malt profile in this beer is very clean and spot on. THe only other example from an amercian brewery that would be as good as this is the vienna from Great lakes. other than that, this is definately a winner for this style.
