Decidedly brown in colour with a medium amount of carbonation. It’s got a nutty / malty aroma with little hop influance. The caramel malt is the dominant flavor, along with some vienna and munich malts and some clean bitterness. It’s fairly average stuff. Thanks Lubiere.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle: Yes, it is amber in color, just like the name. It pours pretty clear, with a little head. The aroma is malty sweet, with some caramel. The taste contains some roastiness to balance the sweetness. Some hops there in the background. Not too bad. It gets better with each sip.

On draft at the brewery. Award winning for a reason. A very flavorful amber with toastiness and sweet malts. Not bad at all.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle- Pours a dark amber color with a small tan head that fades quickly and no lacing. Mostly a grain aroma with a hint of sweet malt. A mild sweet malt & caramel taste. A very light bitterness with a mild sticky sweetness for an aftertaste. Fairly light body, quite smooth. Decent drinker, but a tad sweet to have more than 1-2. A nice unoffensive brew. Got as a 6-pack mixer.

The huge head was a big disappointment, it clouded its aroma wgich seemed malty and sweet. Had a nice cloudy amber color too it. The taste was a spicy mix of malt and hops.

Wow, after the pilsner I wasn’t expecting this.Vienna style lager reminscant of Sam Adams in some way,although I wouldn’t call it a knock like so many others.A good example of what has become a boring style to me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
sampled at the brewery, and found this to be a pretty good vienna. Caramel (deep amber in color). Aroma is clean and malty, with caramel, toasty malts, and german floral hops. Taste is also clean and smooth with alot of caramel/lightly toasted malts- nice balance with bittering and flavoring hops. Finishes smooth and malty. I think this was my favorite of the beers I sampled.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Aroma of nuts, sweet malt, big blast of soda syrup. Flavor of more nuts/peanut butter, sweet malt, some cherry/raisin, and more SODA. Carbonation borders on soda-like as well. I’m no expert on the matter, but I do quite like the style, and this doesn’t taste like any Vienna I’ve had, more like a really bad effort at a doppelbock. Soda bomb.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Clear brownish orange, thin white head. Malty and nutty aroma, very clean. Malty Munich/carmel flavor. Very clean. Very drinkable and full of flavor for a light lager. True to the Vienna style, and well done.
