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.

TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 20. This draft brew was enjoyed at the brewery in Atlanta Georgia. This brew poured a medium sized head of mostly lasting fine to large sized light brown colored bubbles that left behind a good lace and a transparent red brown colored uncarbonated body. It had a very mild red malt aroma. The mouthfeel was thin flat, old and uncarbonated. The flavor was also thin with only a slight red malt flavor to it. It vas very one-dimensional.

Cybercat (6153) - Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2007
It pours a beautiful transparent reddish brown. Aroma is not strong but invitingly malty and spicy. Flavor is rich and malty, with hoppy hints and a touch of cinnamon.

Aurelius (5572) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2002
A fruit-juicy, sweet aroma. Sweet, tart and clean without a whole lot of hopping. Reminded me of sloe plums that I used to eat as a kid. A bright orange-red.

Clear copper red with a fizzy white head. Malty and toffee aroma and taste with a hint of vanilla to the finish.

jbruner (5287) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pours a clear copper on tap with nice fluffy tan head that displays to leave light lace. Aroma of nice bready grain and lager crispness. Taste is more toward the fruity esters of the yeast, nice and clean. Well done for the style, easy.

2.4
hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2003
Draft at Max Lager's in downtown Atlanta. This beer had a small sized tan head with fine-large bubbles that was mostly lasting. There was no carbonation observed and the body was transparent with a red hue. The nose was malty, sweet and spicy with a light hoppy and mild spice taste to it. The mouthfeel was smooth, thin and watery. This was a light bodied beer with good lacing. This beer lacks character, flavor and it was a rather boring beer to drink and rate.

2.9
Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2010
GABF 2010 as Max Vienna. Pours a clear dull copper/ light orange with a thinning head. Aroma is diacetyl, butter, vanilla, marshmellow, toasted malts, light grass. Flavor is herbal, dusty crackery malts, toffee, biscuit, some flowery hops, with more butter and a touch of vanilla. Slight slick finish., Some off things here.
