Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2006
Darker golden lager with a collapsing white head. Sweet fruity aroma with notes of apples and some maple. In mouth, rather sweet and metallic, overbearing, and with an oily mouthfeel. Polish malt liquor. Summer 2005.

Pale gold, small head, good lacing. Bugger all aroma. Very simple, slightly lactic taste. Very dull macro nonsense, but fortunately not nasty. Some slight marzipanness in the finish.

hopscotch (9151) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2007 Bottle... Clear golden lager with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is of vanilla and other rich, creamy, mild spices... think perfect marriage of nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger. Very sweet flavor with lots of vanilla and other rare, rich spices and a very delicate hop presence. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Sweet, vanilla finish.

maeib (8711) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2006
Bottled. A gold coloured lager with no head. Thea roma is on the sweet side with a little grassy hop. The taste is clean and unassuming, with apleasant balance of malt and hop. Reasonably drinkable and quite good in its class.

Benzai (8212) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2011
Bottle @ home shared with Joes and DutchDrebus. Standard clear golden color, no head. Smell malts and grains. Taste malts, grains and cardboard. Strong firm carbo, low body.

Dogbrick (8113) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2002
Can version. Poured a nice amber color with a thick beige head. Malt and caramel aroma. Sweet malt flavor but kind of thin for a Vienna. Granted, GL’s Eliot Ness has ruined me as far as other Vienna’s go. It is nice to know that people had a beer this good 500 years ago.

leaparsons (8068) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2008
Can. Golden with a large foam. Aromas are sweet grain and caramel with Peppery and alcohol notes. Flavours are grain and corn with buttery notes. Quite viscous with alcohol and a kind of fruitiness on the finish. Average.

Rune (8042) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2014
500ml can, shared by djoeye. Decent white lager head, some of it remaining. Clear golden body. Vague aroma of grain, hints of mid-dry fruits. Modest taste of fruit and bread, little more. Has got a metallic and papery touch on the swallow. Dull and empty (Tromsø 30.01.2014)

Pale yellow colour, faint aroma, ok taste for a lager. Not a personal favourite.
