Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom... Poured amber with a white head. Aroma of malt grains. Smooth, subtly carbonated palate with flavors of malted grains and caramel and/or toffee, A little hop bitterness for balance making this a very drinkable brew. Grainy, biscuit-like finish. bhensonb (15242) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle from Craft Beer King. Pours copper with a beige head. Caramel aroma. Near med body. Flavor is caramel with noble hop. Nice, but not exciting. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2011
bottle. 3.8% vienna, thank you heater allen. clear light chestnut colored body. light grassy noble hop notes in the nose with a toasty / biscuit vienna-like character. light body and thinner than it should be, so it’s a bit out of balance and has a watery feeling to it, and the malt is rougher than the other Heater Allen lagers. grassy and green flavor with an herbal tea nature. pleasant and interesting but ultimately it’s just simple field beer, and doesn’t match the quality of the coastal and the pilsner. troopie (2341) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Bottle. Reddish with a thin white head and lots of lacing. Fuller flavoured than you would expect. Rather speedy and soon gone finish marcus (10231) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours golden brown with a modest off-white head and a sweet malt aroma. There is a watery smoked mslt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish.

On tap at Horse Brass. Nice clear amber pour with a nice bone-white head. Nice malt and bread aromas and flavors with a bit of a hop grassiness. Not a bad beer, but probably my least favorite from Heater-Allen so far. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle thanks to GT2. Light toffee colored pour. Nose and flavor bring caramel and light spicy hop profile. Drinkable, but to be expected for a <4% brew. Definitely a Vienna and true to style, but not really captivating in any way. I could crush a bomber, but I didn’t really love the stuff. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2013
651mL thanks to brainlair. Pours a clear, orange with soapy, white foam. Okay to weak formation and soapy lacing. Nose is celery, tomato, whole wheat cracker, German malt, some soap. Taste is lemon detergent, some oil, mild wheat cracker, strange. Palate is densely malty, light grassy bitterness. Feels extremely German, but not necessary complete, fresh, or very good.
