PorterPounder (5542) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light copper with a thin white head. Grainy aroma with some spicy notes. Flavor is a tad muddled - but interesting. Some brief spiciness with a hint of caramel, very faint citrusy bitterness. Moutfeel is slightly carbonated - just the right amount of liveliness.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Bottle. Soft amber with a tall, fizzy white head. Aroma is toasted malts, grassy hops, straw, and grains. Taste is toasted malt, light lemon, yeast notes, grassy hops, straw and biscuit. Body is light-medium with a moderate, fizzy carbonation. Ends with more toasted malt, sweet malt, hint of caramel, grassy hops, and straw. Not too bad.

Suttree (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2009
I was surprised how much I liked this one. I’m generally not a huge fan of viennas, but this one as nicely bold and assertive. Nice mix of caramel malt and and a dryish, hoppy finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice clear sparkling copper with a nice lasting white head and good lace. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel and crackery malts, lightly toasted bwheat bread, and some earthy and slightly peppery hops. Flavor is clean, nice toasted malts, biscuity, light caramel flavor, nice crisp bitterness, a bit herbal and slight grass. Crisp and nice finish- good vienna/mexican amber lager.

Bottle courtesy of DosBeerigos--thanks, Phil! Served in a pilsner glass. Pours a moderately hazy red-copper color with a half-finger white head that sticks around for a bit and exhibits some small white bubbles. A bit of lacing afterward. The nose brings forward a bit of bready malt plus a touch of toast. Some mild earthy hops there as well. The taste has a very pour showing--slight infection has set in and there is a bit of an acetic presence. Very unfortunate. Other than that, there’s a mild cherry-skin presence along with some breadiness in the background. Slight bitterness in the finish, but the coming vinegar takes over. Another infected bottle; quite a shame. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-05-2011

jgb9348 (4737) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Amber coloured body with no head at all to speak of. Aroma of caramel, toffee, a bit of hops and some malt. Medium-bodied; Malty flavour with some hops. Aftertaste is clean with a bit of malt leftover. Overall, decent, but not amazing! I sampled this on ’pseudo-draught’ at the Old Dominion Brew Festival 2004 on 27-June-2004 in Ashburn, Virginia.

Bottle. A pretty mellow beer for a lager. Light, but has a nice malty aroma. Flavors of malts, caramels, and a tinge of hops.
