hopscotch (10612) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2002
The aroma is moderately malty with notes of clover and yeast. A crystal clear, golden beer with a medium-sized, fizzy white head. Slowly, but fully diminishing with decent lacing. A nice moderately malty and slightly pungent flavor up front. A hint of clover honey on the backside. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation. A short, crisp, clean, mostly dry finish with a hint of clover at the far end of the aftertaste. I might be mistaken, but I think this is my first Vienna. Nice, but not completely sold on the style. I will definitely try another next summer on a hot, humid day.

adnielsen (10484) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 Bottle picked up at Beertopia Omaha, opened in Exira, Iowa. Clear, dark orange appearance with a big white head. Grainy, husky, light corn crib, light cobweb, hay aroma. Fuck this reminds me of my grandparent’s, farm five clicks away. Crisp grainy, fairly fruity, a bit dry, grainy flavor. Pretty easy to drink but there’s a bit of awkwardness between the grainy, straw elements and the fruit elements. Tried again in the bottle in Germany. A bit better this time around but nothing special.

Clear golden with medium white head. Sweet malty aroma with grainy notes. Sweet malty flavour with caramel and grainy hints. Ends sweet.

rosenbergh (10382) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2010
500 ml bottle. From Germany (beerangel.com). HHOK4.
Clear deep golden colour with small to average off-white head. Slightly roasted malt and nuts in aroma. Dry hops, grainy malt, some nuts and lots of metal in flavour. Metallic flavour is quite disturbing.

Maria (10214) - 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

pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2005
Bottle: Deep golden to light amber coloured; deep sweet-malty nose (nutty, bready) with a tinge of honey; sweet malty start, becoming dryer soon; big malty flavour; shorter bitter-sweet finish, quite dry. A nicely rounded, very tasty Vienna !

leaparsons (9837) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2006
Bottle. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are grain with citrus and sugar. Zesty and fresh. Flavours are light caramel malts with sweet, sugary grain. Dry and toasty with an almost champagne like character (almost). OK, if a bit too sweet for my personal taste.

DuffMan (9541) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle, craft beer advent calendar day #8, shared with my wife. Deep golden colour with a puffy eggshell head that retains nicely. Lovely bready aroma and flavour, light caramel. The finish has some oxidized papery notes, but this is otherwise quite pleasant.
