JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2009
Amber coloured beer with a thin white head. Aroma is fairly malty. Sweet and a little bit toasty. Clean and fairly industrial. Softly toasty flavour with a crisp maltiness and a touch of sweetness. Clean but fairly uninteresting.

Dogbrick (8139) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Sampled at the Odds and Ends Tasting II on 10/19/07: Clear copper color with a medium off-white head that lasts a bit. Biscuity malt and caramel in the nose. Light, smooth body with sweet malt, caramel and grassy hops flavors. The finish is short and malty. Pretty bland and forgettable overall.

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.

Bottle. Light floral caramel malt aroma. Amber with large off-white head. Very sweet caramel malt and hay flavor. Not good, and from the description, I think they need to study geography a bit more.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Bottled. Poured clear reddish-orange with a fluffy beige head about as tall as the liquid. Nose was quite yeasty with biscuit and caramel maltage as well... clean and kinda boring, but not bad. Flavor was of smooth pulled caramel, biscuits, and pils malts with herbal bitterness and faint citrus at the back-end. Smooth, lighter-bodied middle with a moderately tart and bitter finish. This was not at all complex, but was most definitely drinkable.

CaptainCougar (7132) - 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.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 26, 2005
Bottle. Dark amber-bronze with no head. Sweet malty aroma with a hint of spicey hops. Sweet malty flavor and finish.

DuffMan (6743) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 20, 2007
Clear light amber, rapidly receding head. Aroma is sweet with light caramel notes. Flavour profile is a moderately sweet caramel-kissed pale lager, fairly light mouthfeel. Very easy to drink.

12 oz. bottle. JosephsBrau label. Gift from a neighbor. Thanks, Sid! Pours a clear tea-orange with a finger of off-white head that settles unevenly. Aroma of sweet and toasted malts, crackers, husky grains, and brown sugar. Flavor is pretty much the same. Some bitterness. Light-bodied, with crisp carbonation and a toasty, crisp mouthfeel. Not bad.
