b3shine (8795) - Indiana, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Draft to taster at the downtown brewpub. Looks decent; a transparent light copperish orange with off-white lacing. Smells of caramel and lager yeast with a bit of toastiness. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright.

3.3
PorterPounder (7888) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Had on tap at their Buford location. Pours a light copper with a nice foamy off-white head and excellent lacing. Sweet maple syrup-like aroma. Flavor has some caramel notes with a wee bit of honey sneaking in the back door. Maple syrup notes come through in the flavor as well. Decently thick mouthfeel. Very good.

ben4321 (6391) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2013
Location: Draft at Max Lagers, 4/17/13

Aroma: The nose has some caramel, toast, a bit of spice, and some hops
Appearance: It pours a clear orange-amber color, with an off-white head, drippy lace
Flavor: The flavor is pretty good for the style, balanced, medium sweet and medium bitter
Palate: This is a clean and drinkable Vienna, with an average carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought that this was a pretty nice example of the style with a pretty good flavor profile to it. Another good house brew on this trip to Max Lagers.
