Skinnyviking (9670) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2016

odannyob (153) - Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Poured from a nicley chilled brown glass 12 ounce bottle into a pint dimpled mug. Initial aroma: roasty-toasty, lightly so. As it’s being poured, a very pleasant light brownish oranged hue appears with a thin tan head. The taste has a full, open marzen-ish leaning, ’cept w/a quick hop bitterness concluding. Overall, I like it pretty goodly and it’s an autumn afternoon, too, so it goes ok w/that, too.

snoworsummer (5956) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2015
Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear amber with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like toasted malt, nutty, with a hint of citrus hops. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like toasted malt, nutty, and faint citrus hops.

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2014
12 oz. bottle thanks to Jeff. Appearance: finger light tan head, copper gold color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: caramel, earthy malt, German hops, pilsner. Palate: light-medium body, average carbonation, bitter finish, lightly sticky. Taste: sweet caramel malts with growing grassy hops bitterness that grows. Overall, pretty drinkable, but a bit cloying and not super well balanced.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Amber pour with a frothy head. I am not sure when it was brewed but holds its flavor well in January/14. Good aroma of malts and the autumn woods. Dry mouth with a well balanced hop and malt mix, Not over spicy.

ajnepple (6967) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2013
12 oz bottled three months ago from Evergreen Discount. Lighter shade of amber with a nice looking white head that lingers and laces the glass. Fairly mild aroma of toasted malts, toffee, caramel, light chocolate and earthy hops. Similar flavor, bitter and sweet with a light to medium, thinner body. Smooth, dry feel with a lingering, bitter finish.

drjay44 (3796) - Salida, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin ivory head, with slight laacing, over a slightly hazy dark amber (SRM 15) body....nose is cereal, hints of toffee/caramel, minimal esters or hops.......taste is cereal, light toffee/caramel, finishing bitter.......mouth feel medium, carbonation medium, with a light acid finish. The label say s this is a Vienna style Lager. This misses that style most emphatically. The malt back bone is not big enough and the hop bitterness dominates the finish over much. This need an increase in both malt strength and depth while maintaining attenuation to avoid sweetness. BJCP 6/3/10/4/5

onceblind (10294) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Slightly hazy dark copper with a medium rocky head that leaves loads of lace. Nose is a bit more hoppy than I expect, but its very pleasant. Kinda grassy and a wee bit piney, as if it were dry hopped, with an earthy biscuity caramelly undertone. The flavor is not as exciting as the nose, bringing pale malt and marzen biscuit, a lot of dryness, and a grassy herbal sort of hop resin on the finish with no maltiness to clean it up.
