From a 12oz Bottle. Pours a filtered, transparent, coppery amber color with a tall head of sustaining ivory, soapy head. Aroma of lightly toasted almonds and some slightly skunky grassy hops. A bit of a soapy character as well. A hint of subtle caramelization, but dry. Light bodied, lightly carbonated mouthfeel. Mouthfeel is on the thin side as far as carbonation is concerned, but the flavors are much more impressive than the aroma. Some nice caramel malt characters present themselves quietly to the palate, along with a soothing toasted pine nuttiness. Nice and dry and refreshing with a hint of grassy hops left lingering on the palate in the final smack with some faint peanut skins. Hop character is subtle, but more pleasant than in the aroma.

Thanks to shp555 for this as part of Mystery Swap 2.0. Pours clear medium copper with aroma of caramel malt, some hopcitrus, and some brown sugary toffee. Tastes caramel malty, with mid-palate hops, and some finishing toffee.

ElGaucho (2340) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 11, 2007
Bottle. Sweet and malty aroma. Hint of alcohol. Reddish amber color. Avg. sized off-white head. Slow carbonation. Drier in taste than in the aroma. True to style. Well made, but doesn’t excite the senses.

Bartzilla (590) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 7, 2007
What can I say? In a moment of thirst and weakness I drank not one, but TWO of these at Julie’s condo before I got to work on preparing a marinated pork tenderloin in the Showtime Rotisserie grill by the mad genius, Ron Popiel. Crisp, light and something that would lead to one monster of a hangover if I stuck to it all night. Tasty, just not my cup of melted butter.

Hangover (1100) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Copper pour with a somewhat large white head. Nutty and malty aroma with a bit of yeast. Heavily carbonated. Light taste with some caramel and more malt. Finish is slightly bitter with grassy hops. About what I expected.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2007
Pours a transparent copper amber with a thin coating of wispy white head. Sweet authentic toasty Vienna malty aroma has some German lager yeast character. Starts with a mild light caramel sweetness along with some slightly earthy noble hops and a drier crisp finish. Fairly true to style, but rather boring.

Nephilium (1593) - Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Pours a cloudy amber, with a small off-white head. Starts with a slightly sweet taste, just a hint of bitterness in the finish. Not a bad beer, maybe something to keep if you can’t find something better.

TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2007
Nice clear amber pour with a slightly yellow head. Nice sweet malty aroma. thin to medium body beer. With very low hops the sweet malty aroma comes across with caramel character. This malt is mild and pleasant. The finish is slower and bitter with a slight buttery flavor. Way too carbonated. An OK Vienna.

NicerInPerson (337) - North of Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2007
The aroma was nutty and malty with a caramel aspect which was quite prominent. Vienna and Munich malts stood out and seemed a bit stronger than found in most Vienna Lagers. A very light haze was in the amber beer with a fleeting head. The flavor was malty and nutty with a Munich/Vienna malt toasty character. The flavor was just edging toward sweet, but was not cloying. The body was medium and the carbonation level was just below moderate. An ok Vienna, but with just a bit too much malt character. 12 ounce bottle (92 cents).
