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.

mikkopen (976) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2012
500 ml bottle. Clear deep amber colour, thin white head. Aroma of sweetish toasted malt, butter and grassy hops. The flavour is sweetish malty, with notes of nuts and a mildly grassy-hoppy finish.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Medium coppery gold pour, large white head. Smells midly fruity, bready, doughy, lots of floral hops but not dominated by them. Also tastes bready, doughy, toasty with some honey sweetness, has a very nice floral hops flavor that develops as it finishes with a little earthiness, finishes very clean and lightly bitter. A well-made beer that would be accessible to many.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2005
Bottled. Clear copper colour. Frothy, lacey, medium-sized head. Cookie malt aroma with what could be hints of cinnamon. Honeyish, slightly sweet taste with a cookie malt background. I really like the honeyish notes. I find it amazing how they put typical winter flavours into a beer, while staying with the reinheitsgebot. This is what German winterbeers should all be like. Thanks to joss for this late winter-season treat. Though this style fits the current weather better than the already avaiable maibocks.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - OCT 8, 2002
Malty, sweet, banana, clove aroma. The flavor mimicked the aroma, but had slightly more alcohol in it. Bubbly feel, with a medium head. Pretty orange color.

MikeKeller (926) - Kemi, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 Bottle from Alko, Kemi. A bit uninspiring but nevertheless very good quality German vienna from the famous Weltenburger brewery.
