hotstuff (5158) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Draft-Big River Brewery-Chattanooga, TN. This beer had a small sized white head that contained fine sized bubbles that was mostly lasting. The body was uncarbonated and transparent with an orange hue. It had a malty nose and a bitter and hoppy flavor to it. The mouthfeel was bitter and fairly smooth. This was a light-medium bodied beer that was just so-so. chinchill (4989) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2015
On tap at BRG in Chattanooga.
Deep amber colored body with excellent clarity. and very clear body with a semi-durable tan head and a little lacing.
Lightly sweet aroma with about equal hops and malts and a hint of caramel
Flavor: lightly sweet up front and mildly bitter by the aftertaste; hints of baked bread and faint hops.
The medium body is very smooth; near medium carbonation.
O: solid but unexceptional. ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 15, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, mahogany-hued body with a 1½ inch head of off-white foam.
Smell: Faint bready malt aroma with slight herbal notes.
Taste: A blend of bready and biscuity maltiness with a touch of caramel sweetness. Very faint touch of fruitiness. Herbal, tea-like hop character with a mild bitterness. Touch grainy near the drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A tolerable Vienna, though it does leave me hankering for an Eliot Ness. SpringsLicker (3637) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 21, 2005
On tap at the bar at the brewery.
Beautiful looking beer, ample head, clear bright amber color.
Decent but subdued malt aroma. The flavor was scaled back a bit too, but this was one of the better ones I’ve had from there so far. Just needs a bit more body and flavor to suit me. aracauna (3599) - Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2003
This is a blah beer. It has a nice amber, glowing color but lacks a lasting head. There is no aroma and has less flavor than their light lager. It's just bland. There is a bit of caramel and maybe a little wood. Quite smooth, but I've had better Viennas.

Draught. Pours light copper with a faint white head. The aroma is sweet in a floral way with a very low acidity. The flavor is predominantly malty, though the brew is still thin overall. Hints of chocolate bread and nutmeg make up the light flavor and perhaps a small nip in the finish. Not so bad. jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2009
At Seven bridges Jacksonville. From the tap poured drak brown with a good head. Nice sweet malty flavor with a quick finish. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAR 29, 2005
Nice amber color with malty aroma and flavor, this was a pretty nice brew. it’s a decent example of a vienna Shag (3000) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2003 A good beer especially for something found at a minor league baseball game. Appearance is orangish. Aroma is malty and fruity. Flavor has a nice malt kick with a slightly fruity taste, maybe apricots and oranges, and some hop presence. Mouthfeel is quite nice, creamy and smooth, with a nice bite. Much better than I expected. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Golden copper with a thin off white foam. Aroma of caramelized malt, toasted malt. Taste is the same caramel and toasted malt but feels watery.
