TBone (13844) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2009
Bottled (Beerangel, BB 02/2010). Pale copper color, good off-white head, lace. Metal, ash, clover, straw, grass and caramel in the nose - when warms up: barnyard. Crispish carbonation. Ryeish-caramelly malty, vague grassy-flowery hops. Only some metal. Bitter-harsh aftertaste. Biscuity. Unorthodox German Vienna (closer to hoppy Märzen), but not the most balanced one. Finish is also a bit thin for 5.5% German brew.

Bottle. Low white and quickly disappearing fluffy head. Clear and beautiful golden body. Mild fruity honey aroma. Mild fruity honey flavor with a dry and bitter barley malt base. Long bitter aftertaste. Heavy carbonation.

Quack-Duck (8434) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2009
5l mini cask, bought at the brewery. Clear deep golden colour, large and creamy head. Malty nose. Full-bodied, intensively malty with good aromatic hop flavours. Very slightly fruity. Smooth and velvety mouthfeel, a pleasure!

Pinball (11337) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2009
bought 17oct. 2008 el corte ingles, palma, rated mar 31 2009. best before 3-jun-2009. clear yellow, small thick white head. hoppy, but also a bit earthy aroma. flavor is a bit alcoholic, sweet and dark caramelly. reminds me of a grolsch i once tasted that was few months after best before date. ends sweet. i’ll have to rerate a fresh sample, as this bottleed one was not tasting good, i think it aged badly or have had too much heat at some point.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Tap at Zum Schneider: Copper golden pour with a dense off-white head. Clean, bready, softly caramelized aroma with a lightly spicy Vienna malt note. Creamy body- clean and firm malt flavor- mildly spicy Vienna malts, substantial but light caramel and bready character with a touch of toasted biscuit. As it warms, even more biscuity, clean and mildly sweet malt subtleties come out. A very good Vienna. I could drink a lot of this.

oh6gdx (22401) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 6, 2009
Bottled (from beerangel.de). Deep golden colour (almost coppery) with big off-white creamy/foamy head. Aroma is bready malts, some fruity and metallic notes as well as quite earthy and herbal notes. At first the metallicness was strong, but vanishes, as the beer gets to stand for itself for a while. Flavour is bready malts along with caramel malts, some slight wooden bitterness and also nuttyness and both some floral and fruity hops. Not really that viennaish for anything but the flavour, but then again, very hard to place in any category. As it warms up it gets some slight burnt wet wooden notes. Probably one of the most interesting beers I’ve had from Germany.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Had an old bottle I guess a while ago and gave it a 3/5. Recently on tap at Deep Ellum and this beer damn near blew me away. .4 liter mug. Pours a bright clear coppery light amber with a massive fluffy lasting white cloudy head. Aroma is nicely sweet tons of Vienna and munch toasty fresh malts bready, adn a touch of light floral herbal hallertauer hops. Beautifully smooth full doughy fresh malt flavor, bready pils behind a nice fresh vienna lightly burnt toast, slight toffee, nuts and light floral and zesty hop notes towards the slightly bitter finish. Damn smooth and easy to drink- went great with my breakfast. Great beer, although i cant say this tasted like any other vienna in the world. More like a mix between a dunkel and a helles I guess?

imdownthepub (11294) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2009
Bottled, 500ml, from Real Supermarket, Bamberg. Amber with white head. Looked good, but the flavours were somewhat disappointing, there was a wet cardboard taste initially, leading to a flattish caramel malt taste. A touch on the sweet side with a little roasty coffee note in the finish. More challenging than it should have been, but ok in the end.

Strykzone (5502) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Clear tea brown with plenty of visible carbonation and a nice soapy light tan head. Nose is fruity, caramel, and toffee. Flavor is nut, fruit, caramel, spice, and a mild hop profile. Feel has some nice zing and is medium bodied. It is straightforward and enjoyable. A decent Vienna
