pintbypint (2817) - Edmonton, Alberta, - DEC 6, 2012
330ml brown bottle. Gold coloured brew, clear. White head with fine bubbles, a bit of lacing. Nose has sweet malts, bready notes. Taste has grains, bread and a touch of caramel sweetness. Finishes with medium graininess, touch of toasted grain and faint noble type hops. Average body and carbonation. Pretty simple vienna, drinkable, not very challenging. Barely any trace of whisky malt.

Lukardo (126) - CROATIA - DEC 23, 2014
0,33 l bottle. Pours pale amber color with a 2 finger white head that has decent retention and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains and grass. Taste is grainy malt sweetness with a grassy bitterness. Light bodied with modest carbonation. Nothing special.

slowrunner77 (6649) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 17, 2014
thinner beer, but still overly sweet and not very complex. don’t care for either, but might take this one over the stronger version in a pinch.

digopossobon (330) - MACAE, BRAZIL - SEP 21, 2014
Formou um belo creme denso, levemente acastanhado que se manteve como uma fina camada após algum tempo. Líquido ambar translúcido e efervescente. Bonito. Aroma se destacou a distância. Malte e caramelo bem caracterizados. Doce. Uma cerveja densa no sabor. Muito forte a caramelização, mas apesar disso, com bom amargor posterior. Novamente a carbonatação e o alcool aparecem bastante. O retrogosto é amargo em boa medida e bastante seco.

DonPiano (46) - GERMANY - SEP 16, 2014
Amber colored beer with a clear whites head. Tastes like a nice bread crust with a pleasant sweetness. It leaves a bad aftertaste and it has a watery feeling
