500 ml bottle at Krah-Krah in Vienna. The point here is that this is an Austrian Wiener (or Vienna) lager, deriving from the ruddy-blond style pioneered by Anton Dreher at Schwechat, one of the early lager-brewing greats. Ans Austrian don’t do many of these. It is the lager equivalent of a red ale. Not to everyone’s taste or mine but well made and worth finding.. pintbypint (3831) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 17, 2012
330ml brown bottle, from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Deep gold coloured and clear. Small layer of white foam on top, nice lacing. Nose is toasty, bit of caramel sweetness. Taste has toasty grains, bread, slight caramel sweetness. A little grassy at the end, light bitterness. Light body, decent mouthfeel and carbonation. Better than expected, a nice vienna.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 Coldtrüb amber colour, with fast gone yellowish head. Very sweet bready nose, like a German Bock, smells also like active caramelisation. Taste is much more neutral to slight bitterish; leafy & earthy flavours, virtually no sweetness, with the exception of some retronasal caramel. Light to medium bodied, light grist slickness. Special, even taken into account the Vienna characteristics. Marcus, thanks! rederic (3344) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2008
Cloudy amber hue, with a small beige head, but falling quickly, and leaving laces, toasted, caramelized, grainy, malt nose with an earthy maltiness, some toffee, cookie dough accents, with a subtle floral hop aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp grainy, toasty, biscuity malt character, with some caramel, toffee flavors, with some faint fruity dried raisins, with a mild flowery hop leafiness, leading towards a malty, lingering hop bitterness finish.

Bottle I got at some supermarket in Graz. Poured a red-brown body with a small off white head that went away too fast. A strong sweet grainy, bready aroma with some light caramel promises a solid beer and it delivers. A flowery and caramelly sweetness on top a grainy chalky maltiness... woody and honeyish too. Very light aftertaste hop that stays a little in the aftertaste. A solid, nice Vienna.

Bottle. Poured a chestnut brown colour with a red hue. Medium sized beige head. Aroma of malt, toffee, honey and hops. Roasted malt, toffee and honeyish flavours with some dried raisins also. Quite smooth with a light hop finish. Slight metallic aftertaste. Very lightly bodied and softly carbonated. Not bad for a vienna. wiosna (591) - - JUN 27, 2015

café Einstein Vienna. Kirkas kullankeltainen. Tuoksussa lievästi paahteisuutta, makeutta ja hunajaista mallasta. Maussa paahteista ja hunajaista mallasta, humalaa, leipää. Hyvää.
Licht roodbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en ietwat kruidig met sporen van karamel, chocolade en rozijn. Verrassend goed. heavy (2904) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 5, 2008
29/07 Draught in Bard Celtic Pub in Rijeka. I think this is the one, as waitress told me it’s Vienna style. Poured clear red body with medium sized ebony head. Rather weak aroma but pleasantly, caramel malted. Flavor is somehow different than I’ve excpected - bitterish hoppy but malty at the same time, largely in form of sweet caramel. Pretty thin bodied, but still nice. It was interesting how the first sips revealed bitterness which was not quite representative alone, later moving into caramel sweetness which is felt specially on its long finish. Fine, interesting, but nothing great again. Ungstrup (38384) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2010
Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a dry malty and lightly bitter finish.
