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. cubs (10745) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a touch hazy, copper, burnt orange appearance with a light brown head. Pretty tame, light caramel, herbal, straw, a touch spicy, but boring aroma. Somewhat spicy, grassy hoppy, toasty malty, kind of watery, uninspired flavor. Not offensive and not overly hard to drink, but there’s just not a ton going on. douglas88 (9857) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Drank in Denver for GABF 2012. Pours a cloudy brown color with a small white head. A nice toasted malt nose with some chocolate. The flavor is a sweet and easy Vienna with toasted malts, some light dusty leaves, caramel. Good. Skinnyviking (9823) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2016
Sample at the brewery. High creamy lasting white head. Clear amber golden body. Weak roasted malt straw caramel aroma and flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a short finish. Ernest (7918) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing.

Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel), lightly hoppy (apricot).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation.
Simple, overly sweet, syrupy, very beginner-homebrew-like.

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. snoworsummer (6404) - 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. hayduke (5752) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Sampled at GABF 2015. In tasting glass as amber. White foam. Nose of caramel malts and nuts. Medium body. Flavor is malty with floral hops and the nuts are in the finish. OK drjay44 (3929) - 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 zoucrew102 (2320) - - OCT 4, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2017 Bottle. Caramel malt aroma with notes of grainy malt, earthy and grassy hops. Pours clear copper colored with one finger of off white head that has excellent retention but little lacing. Starts with caramel and grainy malt flavors. Finishes smooth with earthy and grassy hops with a hint of bitterness. Decent.
10/4/13: Tap at powers old Chicago, COS. Malty aroma with a bit of caramel and earthy hops. Pours copper colored with a medium, white head. Caramel malt sweetness to start followed by a dry, earthy, hoppy finish.
