Holdwine (1135) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 5, 2008
I was thinking soft and mellow for a Winter ale and then I see Vienna lager and it makes sense. Easy drinking, wet hay notes, Some sweetness. A wee bit watery, but an nice all around brew.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2007
I noted some raw grain notes in this otherwise very soft, mild brew, which I think did a lot for its overall flavor. There is nothing which is done wrong here, and much that is right (the sweetness is welcome and never overstated). A good beer.

fonefan (41314) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2007
Bottle. Clear medium amber color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, light hoppy, grass. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. (301107)

Sigmund (6115) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2007
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. ABV is 5.4%. Deep golden brown to amber colour, large off-white head. Moderately spicy aroma, quite nice, with some notes of bakery, also a certain fruitiness. The flavour is quite fruity but also distinctly malty, notes of toffee and mild spices, decent hops in the finish. A lager well above average! A bit too much carbonation for my taste though.

nuplastikk (5369) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2007
16.9oz bottle. Golden-tan filtered color. Wonderfully sweet malt flavor with a light smoky/spicy taste in the background. Mellow and delicious, an awesome lager.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Pours hazy amber-brown with a large off-white head. Malty aroma: very sweet and bready, with a touch of raw grain. Light metallic notes. Caramel malt in the flavor alongside biscuity, tangy, almost rye-ish flavors. There’s a hint of smokiness that gives this one a winter-ish slant. Tasty, elegant little lager. Who cares which season it’s named after?

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2007
Yes no winter beer this is in anyway. Pours clear amber with basically no head. Butterscotch flavor with caramel sweetness. Sweet crystal malts all the way with a touch of roasted malts in the aftertaste and some biscuit malts for crispness. Very oktoberfest like and would’ve been more suitable for that season.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Rated 2/6/07: I, like some of the others here got excited about finding this bottle being labeled as a "winter" brew, and then experienced sadness when I found out it was only a Vienna Lager......but after drinking this I am a happy man. Maybe the mood was just right but this one really hit the mark tonight. Nothing unrealistic in relation to the style just a pleasant example. Sweet aroma, very bready/biscuity with a hint of stinging sour fruit. Beautiful light amber pour with a frothy head and a nice ring of lacing at the top. Sharp mouthfeel, clean and simple. Nice toasted flavor mixed in with an ample helping of sweet malt. Lightly hopped supplying a quick burst of bitterness. Doesn’t excel in any category but overall I give it a deserving 8 for sheer enjoyment.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5969) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 This beer was far more of a bock than a Vienna to me. Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bronze color with a small yellow-tan head. The aroma was sweet, malty, tangy and lightly vegetal. The flavor was sweet, rich, tangy with a vegetal element and light molasses and fruity hops.

marcus (8292) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 23, 2007
This reddish amber beer poured with a medium off-white head that dissipated fairly quickly. There is a pleasant caramel malt flavor with a short bitter hop finish snd a longer lasting fruit and malt aftertaste. The mouthfeel is lively and carbonated. Very refreshing.
