nice amber/gold pour with a white head. nose is caramel, dough, bread, and light toffee. smooth palate, flavors are the same as the nose, rather malt heavy with dough and toffee. badgerben (5388) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Dark gold color with no head. Aroma of cotton candy and corn. More of the same in the flavor along with a very musty hop taste. Slightly sour finish. heemer77 (5361) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Bomber. Light amber body with a light off white head. The aroma is light orange soda with some roasted peanuts. There is also some Juicy Fruit gum. The taste is light bread crust with some orange peel notes. A very light body that is slick and thin. Soft carbonation. This is unlike any other Vienna I have tried, more like a Premium lager or maybe even a watered down American Dark Lager. Decent stuff that I would not mind having as a session beer. hotstuff (5289) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 11, 2008
Bottle. Poured a small, fizzy off-whte head that mostly diminished, transparent, carbonation observed, fair amount of lacing, and a dark straw hue. Nose was hoppy, citrus, malty, and citrus. Ditto for the flavor along with some pine taste. Tingly mouthfeel and medium in body. I was pleasantly surprised that this was tastier than what I was anticipating for some unknown reason. Hoppier than I thought it would be and in a good way. Very quaffable and worthy of a try IMO. I would drink this again as it is a nice, easy drink.

From an old rating note - bomber. Nice lager. Light caramel aroma. Smooth. Well-balanced. Slight nuttiness with some dark fruits. All I’ve got other than a score.

Bottle. Amber colour with a good creamy head. Citrus hops, especially orange. Citrus meets toffee flavours, some hints of metal. Thirst-quenching. Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Reviewed from notes.
Pours light copper with a nice white head and a good deal of lacing. The nose brings forward a pretty good amount of biscuit malt as well as some light hops. Good bready flavors throughout. Light to medium body with good carbonation. In the end, a nice craft example of the style and drinks quite well. Very good for what it is.

Hoppy Vienna lager from the same mold as Brooklyn Lager. Amber color with an off-white head. Piney and floral. Crisp and lagery on the mouthfeel. Makes you want to eat 60 Nathan’s hot dogs in one sitting. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2008
