UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 Bottled August 8 and tasted October 20. Pretty beer, nice head, perfectly clear amber color. Aroma of sweet malt, taste is more of the same with perfectly balanced hopping. Much less hoppy than SABL of course, but this is a very fine example of a Vienna. If you want a beer with some character but don’t like an overdose of hops, this is a great beer for you. Had it a couple of times on draft .... OK for a Vienna, but light most of the way around.

This is a tasty Vienna. Aroma was a little weak. Could pick up some caramel in there but very faint. Pour was a beautiful light brown with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was a lot better than the aroma. Nice full flavored caramel flavor in the front and hints of toffee in the finish.

Rich and perfect . First taste is smooth as is the last. Nutty brews are a favorite ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Simple malty lager, flat, medium body. Serve it at a BBQ and nobody would mind.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2017 Pours a weak looking clear rust color w/ a fizzy head that dies. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel. Reminds me of cream soda a little bit. Sweet tasting; caramel, toast, metal. No discernable bitterness. Watery thin in the mouth. Meh

Pretty solid heavy lager. Big caramel and malty body. Pretty sweet, but with a decent bite in the finish. A little bit weirdly fruity. Not a bad gas station sixer,

Bacchus66 (347) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2017
12oz bottle. Pours clear amber with a finger of off-white head that fades to a thin cap. Biscuity, wheaty aroma with a hint of brown sugar. Light body, some citrus flavors balanced with light malt. Creamy texture, pleasant grainy finish. Nicely done.

On draft at 11th Street Taphouse in Virginia Beach. The pour is a darker amber color, quite clear and thin without any head or lace. There is a few bubbles rising up from the bottom. The aroma is also really thin and light. There is a sweet maltiness and a light caramel, but that’s about it. It’s sweet and caramel dominated. I like that there isn’t any metallic to it as some others have. The flavor is much of the same. Very light and single-dimensional. Caramel malts and a light toast up front and a relatively sharp fall off from that to nothing. The mouth feel is watery and not very carbonated at all with a lingering sweetness. This isn’t terrible, but I wish it had more staying power.

Decent lager, with a strong sweet malt backbone. Difficult/unique taste to describe, it's slightly vanilla and slightly caramel. Decent, but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Pours a clear reddish amber with a thin white head. Aroma of burnt toast, toasted malts, light fruits. Flavor of roasted malts, earthy malt, light fruits. Simple, malty, tasty. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)
