It pours a nice amber with not much of a head and very little lacing. The aroma is very faint and nothing really stands out. The flavor is very much the same. It’s clean but that’s about it. No flavors stand out but it’s not dreadful. Just blah to me. Completely unmemorable and not recommended! rougeau13 (3282) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Clear, pale amber with a small head. Not much to it, sweet malt, water, and light grass. Boring. musinj6 (510) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Pours a very clear dark gold with small head and no lacing. Toasted malt with slight caramel. Mild lemon and pine hop notes. Lively carbonation. sticky mouth feel medium body. Brief malt finish. Nothing extremely exciting, but very drinkable. Zymurgeist2 (2440) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Out of a bottle. Pours a clear amber with nice enough head. The aroma is weird - almost showing an alcohol, but maybe more like band-aid. No real malt detectable. Taste is thin and uninteresting with the malt again not showing any of the Vienna characteristics. Mariusz (12304) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2012
Grainy malt nose, with a light hint of grassy hops. Slightly bittersweet, with a grainy malt texture, light hints of caramel and toffee. Not very impressive.

Clear golden color. Fizzy sweet with bitter overtones and thick, bittery syrupy aftertaste.

Pours a clear amber with a medium off-white head with some light lacing. Aroma and Taste is sweet lightly toasted caramel malt and grains, some yeast, fruity, light grass notes and light bitterness. Palate is a medium body, crisp with good carbonation. Finishes with sweet lightly toasted caramel malt and grains, some grassy notes, fruity with some light bitterness. Overall an ok brew, crisp and refreshing.

My favorite bottle for home brew and it comes filled with a pale brown beer that is great for drinking after mowing the lawn, but otherwise boring. Bottle good...beer inside not-so-much. gizmo_ber (221) - Steinwenden, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2012
Bought this because it was cheap and I wanted the bottle. It’s not a dark amber like i was expecting, and is really sweet. Was hopeful for better, but ready to expect it to be not as good as I hoped. Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Always had this pegged for a low end ale, but it makes more sense as Vienna or light marzen. Mild roasty aroma, dark orange with lots of liveliness and one finger head. Tastes caramel sweet with a grainy aftertaste. Slick body, yet strangely filling. There’s a poster at Sunset tap with this beer pictured in front of Strasbourg Cathedral that says "Monuments of Alsace." Nice try Heineken. Nicer bottle at least. Might be okay for cheaper beer, but not worth the import price.
