Northernbrewer (147) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Having been to Austria, this ain’t it. Poured with a thin head and a touch of lager/sulfur in the nose giving way to a very light and simple crystal malt aroma that is out of place for the style. The body was thin for the style with none of the melanoidin character and subtle toast I was hoping for. That said, it is clean enough and isn’t offensive.

12 oz bottle from Trader Joe’s. Pours coppery amber on the glass. Toasted bready flavor with a hint of citrus hops. Basic toasted malt aftertaste. Overall, its a decent brew but not too exciting.

Bottle, amber pour, white head, nose is lacking, some bitter, taste is average, some bitter, some malts, but nothing worth bragging about.

Strong carmel, almost stoutish. Sweet and mellow. Brown sugar finish. Not bad at all

Joseph Brau Vienna Style Lager has a thin-to-medium, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, amber appearance, and very little lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread crust, and a light molasses. Taste is of those elements, with caramel malt, and light hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium and prickly, and Joseph Brau Vienna Style Lager finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

Orange/light copper pour, willowy off white head. Nose is malt. Middle is sweet bread. Finish is light, with a slight wack of hops. OK

stevoj (2016) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Decent looking but mostly bland Vienna. Nice creamy head, but aroma and taste are weak, and musty. My first experience with Trader Joe’s house brews. Not impressed.

tmoreau (2315) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured to a fest goblet, showing a clear & bright amber color, with fairly persistent, fluffy/creamy, light tan head foam, and good cling to the waves & spots of lacing. The nose was hints of yeast and malt driven esters, toastiness, caramel and smooth maltiness. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was good malt content, some lingering quality to the moderate, earthy bitterness, and just a hint of malty sweetness on the tongue. Fairly clean lager, and nicely drinkable.

DYCSoccer17 (3302) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 16, 2013
12 ounce bottle from a mixed 12 pack purchased at Trader Joes in Davis, CA. The aroma is awkward. Sweet, fruity, floral. Some boiled vegetables, too. Pours a nice transparent copper color with a small, white head. Decent lacing, too. Starts with some sweet, caramel maltiness. Becomes a little nutty and lightly toasted in the middle. Finishes with slight metallic, herbal bitterness. Not bad, if you can get past the aroma.

joeneugs (3119) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 15, 2013
12 oz. bottle. It pours a very clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma is pretty neutral with some toast and mildly fruity Munich quality. The flavor is pretty dry, but has some noticeable caramel malts in the background. Darker flavor than some Viennas, but not a lot of character. Mild bitterness in the finish. A pretty decent drinker.
