Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JAN 17, 2009
500ml bottle. Clear, deep amber with a fizzy off white head. Scads of carbonation bubbles. Lots of sweet caramel in the nose, light grain and mild grass. Sweet caramel flavor with a mild grassy bite. A light spiciness is behind all that. Medium body, just a touch syrupy considering the lively carbonation. A really nice drinker.

On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt. Excellent appearance. Pours a very clear amber color with a nice frothy white head and good lacing. Aroma is pleasant and fruity with sweet caramel malt and some spices. Flavor is not intense but is good and balanced. Sweet caramel and pale malt, light fruits and nuts, and a hint of spice. This is pretty tasty, especially for the style. Medium body with a nice smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Drinkability is pretty good. Overall this won’t blow you away, but it’s really great and interesting for a Vienna/marzen. A little underrated in my opinion.

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.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 26, 2011
Sörspecialista, Budapest. Rézvörös színű ital, ami kristálytisztán csillog a poharunkban. Habja csont fehér, paplan szerű, elég nagy és kitartó, pláne az a csipkefüggöny, ami a pohár szélén marad. Illata édeskés, malátás, mézbe mártott aszalt gyümölcsös és fűszeres. Maláta lisztes gyümölcsöskeksz, fűszerekkel, mézzel és mogyoróval. Ez az első benyomás, amihez később csatlakozik egy szép adag kesernyés komló, ami igen jól áll neki. Közepesen testes és buborékos. Utóíze is kekszes, keserédes, csonthéjas és száraz. Finom kis karácsonyi itóka, ami kellemes kísérője az ünnepnek.

EithCubes (5306) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2012
200th rating for this beer. Bottle by 29.08.2012. Cracker and caramel nose, sticky malt with a little toffee and faint roast. Dark orange-brown body with a creamy beige head. Lightly bittersweet, a nice rounded malt flavor and quite crisp and prickling with a crackery-bready note in with the juicy hops and citrus in the aftertaste. Medium body, really nice Vienna.
