Shared by MrFacto at Pre-Sex - thanks, Matt! Deep russet color on the pour, with a nice creamy head. Soft toasted caramel in the nose, along with a bit of bitter hops. Maybe a faint touch of wood in the taste. A nice balanced beer.

This is the best vienna ive had. Nice balance of the malts and the hops resulting in a refreshingly smooth beer. Nice option for a slightly warm and sessionable vienna

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Pours a clear amber, moderate white head that fades to a ring. Aroma of malt and grain husks. Flavor is very husky and biscuity on the first sip, but this mellows. Still very earthy and dusty, with a bit of nutmeg. Grassy, just tending slightly towards the metallic. Coarse mouthfeel, dusty finish.

3.5
IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Bottle: Pour is medium clear golden. Aroma is of malt, corn, caramel, and a hing ot nutmeg. Beer is well blended with medium malty flavors in the beginning moving towards a spicy finish with nutmeg and some other earthy spices. Very well blended and medium to full bodied.

jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Clear amber with good, foamy off-white head / Minimal nose of corn syrup / Medium body, sweet, with some syrupy malts, with decent finish / Flavors of corn syrup and artificial caramel / Below average.

amber colour witha thin head. Earthy dusty aroma, some roasted malt and fruit tones. Nice crisp bready malt flavour with molasses and dark fruit.

Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Beer has a nice copper color but has very little head and low, very fine carbonation. Aroma has caramel notes and is a very candy sweet with a bit of apple/pear fruitiness. The beer starting has a lot of caramel flavor, middle has bitter earthy and citrus hops flavor and finishes with a sweet fruity-dry flavor. Medium mouth feel. Overall, this beer is pretty but something I would buy every once in a while.

12 oz bottle from Steve’s in WI. Pours a clear copper amber color with a creamy beige head. Lots of malt in the nose, bready, and sweet. Simple lightly sweet and malty flavors that follow the nose. Nothing bad but nothing too good about it either. There may be a trace of hops in the finish, but its hardly noticeable, in fact I don’t even know if it notice it.

drank this a while ago. I remeber it being fairly smooth. Drinkable for sure. Poured a light amber color with a white head, aroma was pleasing. Some hops but not a ton. I enjoyed this beer but didn’t blow me away!
