COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This all malt, Vienna-style lager is a real crowd pleaser! Roasted malts and imported hops give it a deliciously smooth malt taste backed by a light hop finish. Perfect for any occasion.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with robertsreality (thanks!). Poured a medium and hazy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of bread, citrus, and grain. Tastes of caramel, citrus, and some roast.

Nice malt and balance with carbonation. Nice copper head. Drinkable, good example of type as not too sweet.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Thanks to RobertsReality for this. Ruby pour with medium white head. Heavy malt aroma, with toffee, fruit, and slight barnyard elements. Tastes malty, with a dry finish and medium palate.

I haven’t had an authentic Vienna Lager, but this was the best one of the style i have had.

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2006
Bottled. Poured a clear lighter shade of caramel with a rather short-lived cap of off-white head. Nose was sweet with lightly-toasted caramel and some floral hops. Flavor was about the same, but felt like there was some artificial sweetener in there... lightly-toasted caramel stuck a bit at the finish. Lighter-bodied and smooth... ’cept for the finish. Bitterness rose toward the end, leaving a citrus and floral impression. Powerfully mediocre brew.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Pours a transparent copper orange with a nice, frothy off-white head. Toasted sugary caramel malty aroma has a touch of grainy Vienna malt and subtle lager yeast. Body starts with a pleasant malty sweetness revealing some earthy noble hoppy bitterness toward a smooth, bittersweet toasty finish. Fairly well-balanced and true to style, just not all that interesting.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Bottle courtesy of Dalzale. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of citrus, some caramel, roses. Tastes of citrus and peppery with a light floral finish.

BVery (6270) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Bottle at Minneapolis Beer Fest. Kind of the definition of an average beer - clear amber pour, some light malt and caramel in here, fairly light palate - not offensive, not interesting, just kind of there.

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Hazy reddish pour with white head. Aroma has notes of some roasted malt, touch of bread and fruit. Taste is some bready fruit, and a touch of caramel. Average, weak flavors, and not that many of them.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
BBB63 (6042) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Bottle: Golden hue with a small fading head and no lace. The aroma has notes of vanilla, bready malts, toffee, aromatic german hops (Saaz anyone?), and apple peel. The taste has a smooth malty note with a light bitter and fruity finish. Not too complex but easy to drink. The feel has a soft velvety texture which added to the overall enjoyment. A solid brew and pure Vienna.
