My favorite of their brews. Amber colored brew. Aromas of caramel malts, bread, toast. Mildly sweet up front with toasty sweet bread and a nice crisp bitterness in the finish. Flavorful, yet light. This one was well made.

I had this on tap and it’s a fairly good vienna, light and smooth but still fairly flavourful. It’s light brownish amber with a decent off-white head. It has caramel with a llittle yeasty bread dough, faint earthiness, lightly sweet with a little hop flavour and bitterness, making it more interesting than many of the style.

This is a very refreshing beer, probably the best of its style. One of the most flavorful lagers youre likely to find with a very nice toffee finish.

Draft. Amber beer with an off-white head. Earthy/grassy hops with a good caramel malt backing. Low aroma. Great balance. Lingering hop flavor mixed with a bit of sweetness.

Great Vienna, such a lost style. This beer has balance in flavor, aroma, body and drinkability. This is the best reason for going to the mall that I have ever come across. This beer has the balance of drinkability and body that so many microbrews lack in todays market.

appley aroma, transparent orange, fruity with a nicely hopped finish, highly drinkable and enjoyable

Braudog (5627) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2002
Only a light malt aroma. Light amber fortells the watery swill with barest roasted barley. Blech.
