sfontain (811) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Pretty, orange color; smallish, mostly fizzy head. Pleasant but weak aroma, with citrus, floral, and bready notes. Tastes of citrus (mainly orange) and breadiness. Medium-thin body; clean.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Great fruity aroma, nice malty body, some great caramel and toffee flavors, never gets bogged down in too much flavor, nicely balanced, and very crisp and clean. Easy to drink, and not too light.

This Vienna pours an amber gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, caramel and orange. A medium bodied Vienna. Malts are caramel and sweet. Hops are slightly citrusy. Slightly spritzy carbonation. Very drinkable lager. Crisp and clean. Nice malty finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Pours copper with a creamy white head. Smells of oranges and sugar. Tastes of caramel, and vanilla ice cream. Interesting beer, but off on taste.

Cappadonna (110) - Delray Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Light golden brown with white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of pumpkin. The flavor is sweet and malty. The palate isn’t as "sticky" as its Oktoberfest cousin.

Best Before October 2005 bottle from Liquor Mart. Consumed on 11/30/05.
Rusty copper colored beer, lightly hazy with just a trace of yeast settling out on the bottom. Some brighter strawberry red hues and an off-white head with fair retention and lacing, eventually receding to cover. In the nose is a lightly sour note, perhaps munich grains, and a hint of dry fruits (unripened berries, unripened nectarines). Dry, husky malts on the end. Smells just a touch metallic at first, but this passes. The flavor has plenty of medium-dry caramel, soily, lightly bitter hops and dry breadiness lingering. Moderately crisp yeast on the finish as well. Carbonation is moderate, pretty average for the style, while it has a lightly watery texture, though it’s not thin by any means. Surprised to find this is 6% abv, as it masks that very well and comes off as a very low gravity, albeit well-malted, session lager. Very even maltiness, not the most complex, but does provide bread, fruits, biscuits and light hops.

i just dont like lagers hmm. It seemed to have some nice sweet malty notes but also a very bland yeasty note too. Minimal hops. Color was just a plain amber head was white with some retenion, a nice mouthfeel. eh

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2005
Respectable Vienna-style lager. Some malt sweetness but in a restrained way, making this very repeatable. Moderate hop bite which I liked. A surprisingly nice lager.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2005
Does have a caramel-ish aroma to it. Fairly strong aroma too. Orange/tea colored with a finger thick head. Caramel comes through a again with some hay/grass notes and a lot of marzen characteristics. Strong malt profile. A little sptritzy int he finish despite the mellow maltiness.
