Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - MAR 11, 2008
This is a nice, interesting vienna that actually seems to be crossed with a pilsner. It is lighter/golden amber with a medium off-white head that is long lasting and leaves some fairly good, thin lace. The aroma is sweetish, mildly caramelly and leaf-like malt and dough with pine and herb hops and a hint of sulphur; very nice. The taste is similar, a little earthy, carmale malt body with lots of herbal, grassy hop flavour; tingly, with a light, persistent bitterness that just dominates the sweetish body. It is lighter than many viennas, but has a lot more hop character than usual, reminiascent of pilsners, with great balance between the elements. It is very drinkable.

Golden color; creamy head. Aroma of breadcrumbs and cereals. Simple flavor, with some malt, rather dry. Ordinary bitterness. Uninteresting.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
Dark golden with a nice head and aroma with notes of malt and hops. The flavour is slightly sweet with notes of caramel, a moderate bitterness and a slightly dry finish. Well and that’s about it.... 1548

nuplastikk (4878) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2008
500ml bottle. Medium golden-orange color, filtered. Aroma is doughy and fresh. Very creamy and soft, with a mellow hop balance. I seem to detect a little amber malt. Very subtle quality beer.

Finn (4531) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2008
On tap in the Klosterschenke 21 Jun 07. Dark brown coloured. A fluffy white head. Sweet fruity aroma with a soft sweet flavor. Roasted malty aftertaste with a sweet, fruity finish. A bit too carbonated.

kappldav123 (5311) - GERMANY - DEC 20, 2007
The bottle looks very normal. The aroma is very exotic, but the flavour is very delicious. Good and very drinkable beer.

Bottle. Clear amber colour. Medium carbonation. Mostly malty aroma with some hops. Long, strong finish. Great beer.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2007
This was really easy to like. Dark brown with a small head. Taste of cookies and cream, chocolate and coffee. Almost no hops, not much complexity, creamy in the mouth. Not a beer to study, just easy to enjoy. Hard to imagine how its ratings could be so low.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - NOV 18, 2007
500 ml bottle pours a clear amber body with a small almond head. Sparse patchy lacing. Aroma of toasted grain, caramel, and spicy earthy hops. Light medium body with spritzy carbonation. Taste mirrors the aroma with the hops becoming somewhat floral. Nicely balanced, overall.

Sigmund (5463) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2007
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. ABV is 5.5. Deep golden colour, large head. Nice aroma for a golden lager: fruity and floral hops with moderate malts. The flavour is fairly malty and well rounded, some sweetness, balanced by moderate hops. Soft mouthfeel. A decent lager, well above average.
