thewolf (12373) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel. Pours a pretty, clear red amber with a smallish fluffy off white head. Aroma has lots of caramel, lightly roasted and a apple scent in the back. Nice, regular Vienna mouthfeel, not too watery nor too full. Malty caramel flavours dominate with a toffee twist as well as a dry roasted hoppy finish.

So called "half-dark" beer. It is decent, nothing amazing. Slightly sweet with a nice aroma.

150ml taster, on tap at Prague Beer Museum. Solid lacework from a filmy layer. Crystal clear amber coloured body. Brown malty nose, roasted. Taste of roasted caramel malts with moments of almond and plums. Notes of leafy hops towards a mid-sweet ending. Medium bodied. Likable (01.07.2016).

Pinball (12031) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2009
clear amber, large smooth offwhite head. nice malty slight bready note, dry, caramel. flavor is bitter caramel, some malty sweetness. makes me think of the malty flavor from barley wine but of course much weaker. palate is a bit too fizzy. a very tasty beer.

Sammy (11845) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2006
Big head though beer smell, lace, and nice reddish dark colour. Well malted. Carbonation on the aggressive side. Overall bold taste, with some herbal addition. There is a bit of yeast and wheat in the taste. Good finish.A good Vienna, thanks to Jan Biegeman

Dark reddish brown colour with small white head. Yeasty, dry woody, nutty and malty aroma. Dry mild hoppy bitterness in flavour. Not my favourite but still quite drinkable. Soft carbonation.
