The aroma was light fermented fruit, flowers, slight citrus, slight tea and toasted nuts. The flavor was toasted nuts, slight tea, citrus, flowers. The beer poured a golden brown color w/ orange, red, and yellow highlights; thin lasting head and lacing. The mouthfeel was creamy and light bodied w/ a wet finish.

ChainGangGuy (4422) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, orangey-amber body sporting a thin ring of whiteish bubbles. Smell: Grainy aroma with little bit of caramel and a scent of floral, spicy hops. Taste: Light caramel maltiness, some toasted grains. A splash of sweet apple juice. Very mild hop bitterness. Overall sweetish finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Light and easily drinkable, sure, but there are many better representatives in the style to be had.

bvc (1161) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2010
12oz bottle brought back from La Boddega. Pours a clear bright golden amber with a small tight head. Sweet honey and caramel malt, crisp grass with light cracker on the back. Taste is as the nose suggests...light honey, cracker malt and grassy hops...however, there is this unpleasant skunkiness on the end that isn’t working for me. Too bad, other wise a decent little lager.

Very dark for a Vienna. Taste is pleasant, but dryish lager aftertaste. Rated 8/13/02

Deep amber and copper coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel and pit fruits, a little malt and a bunch of metal and grapes - interesting. Light-bodied; Sharp malty and lightly nutty flavour at first with a lingering metallic note and some very mild hop flavours near the end. Aftertaste shows some cardboard maltiness, a touch of grapes and a little pit fruit flavours. Overall, an okay beer and interesting for the style - a lot of malt present and a good bit of caramel and metal coming together for the flavours. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, Alaska on 26-June-2010 sampled at home before leaving for Hawaii on 03-March-2011 in Washington.

argo0 (11653) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2003
(draft) Crystal clear light golden with off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grassy, floral. Taste is mild sweet turning Bohemian hoppy, finishing mild grassy bitter. Light body and smooth, ok crispness. Pleasant everyday lager that's legit but shouldn't scare off the BMC crowd.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - JUL 17, 2005
On draft at the Pumphouse in Fairbanks AK (don’t go to this restaurant by the way). Reddish amber with a thin head and very light caramel beer not unlike a light bodied Vienna. Kinda boring but well done.

VertBaconStrips (2100) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 11, 2009
Poured out a light amber brew with a mid sized light tan head that retains fairly decent enough. The aroma is sweet, caramelly and some bread, touch of grass and some mild tropical fruits. The taste was nice and crisp. Soft fruits, a light bitterness, caramel and light spice. Smooth but a light too light.
