ganache (6050) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle. Nose lightly dusty with a sprinkling of sweet earth, Munich with the muted earthy-spiciness of English hops. Pours a beautiful dark copper-amber with a rocky beige head. Spicy English hops [aha! It must be the Nugget] and crystal malt with a little sweet darkness of Munich and some nice rolling malt depth, lightly woody; bitterness is very light and more nutty-earthy than bitter, also overwhelmed by the sticky sweetness. Light fruity edge-rounders and a pleasant buttery undercurrent. Love the toasty character here. Medium-fullish body, aftertaste dries a bit. This is my vision of a traditionalist Englishman brewing an Alt for his Rhenish guests with what was at hand; it has a wonderful balance between malt and hops and would do very well in multiple seasons, best late at night.

Decent light brew, on tap at brewery in Boston, amber color, white head, smooth, decent brew rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Slightly hazy medium amber, persistent heavy head cover, swaths of lace. Taste opens with sweet malt and light toast, joined by mild bittering midway through the palate, slowly dissolving to sweet malt again at the finish. Refreshing, easy to drink, good with seafood. jbruner (5273) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle thanks to trade with phatdog1! Pours a clear amber brown with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma of bready malts and a hint of astringency. Taste follows, nice caramel notes with a hint of spice. Solid Vienna lager. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle:   Amberish, a bit hazy, thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Soft grassy nose, slight biscuit.   Notes of caramel, soft soil, grains, and toasted malts on the tongue.   Seems pretty clean too.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Seems more hearty than your normal Vienna, darker, and with more caramel.   Better than expected.

(From notes 2011)
Poured from bottle at Durgin Park in Boston, Massachusetts. Pours a cloudy honey color with a minor head and almost no lacing. Nice aroma of hopiness with a touch of citrus, not too overwhelming but certainly present.
Sweet and slightly spicy in taste, very enjoyable. Average mouthfeel of a lager, good drink-ability. A very good session beer. jkwood04 (5463) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 20, 2012
12oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours copper with a beige head. Aroma of pale and caramel malts with some light hops and hints of toast. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer. puboflyons (3488) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 9, 2012
From an undated 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is medium to dark amber that can be otherwise described as bronze with a short-lived head. The aroma has a pleasant ester of dark malts, nutty notes, and candied sugar. The body is medium. The taste is sweet with low bitterness and a smooth finish. Very drinkable. crajun (1260) - , Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2012
bottle to glass; amber pour - not much aroma. taste starts malty but then an odd metallic flavor takes over - finishes dry and hoppy - slightly below average...
