Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Bottle: Kind of a grassy and lightly malty aroma. Pours a transparent amber with a decent size white head with fair retention. Nice lacing. Initial big caramel flavor is followed by very light bitterness in the finish. Has a little euro lager/pilsner character to it. Light to below moderate caramel aftertaste.

Thanks to Pailhead for the bottle! Pours a ruddy amber with a small off-white head. Nose is malty and sweet with citrusy notes (orange marmalade?). Taste is a big disappointment. Malty but laden with more citrus - lemon peel and tangerine. A littel bit too overdone for a vienna. The hops are there and aren’t overdone but the light spice and caramel are pushed too far into the backgorund by the citrus. Body is light and has a mild carbonation feel to it. Finishes with some light citrus fruit, caramel, and thinned malt. Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Warehouse Liquors in Duluth, Minnesota. Pours a clear light copper amber brew with a thin off-white head that slowly dissipates to a white ring. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, some lemon citrus zest, roasted nuts and a touch of cardboard. Taste is medium bodied, some caramel malt and lemon skin. Finish is slightly dry, metallic with a slight acidic vinegar finish which may be an old bottle. ganache (6065) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2008
Bottle. Caramel and thick malt aroma with some luscious toffee and biscuit note, a bit of grapey fruit. Deep dark amber body with a lacing, creamy white head. Taste is big on caramel and bready notes, with toffee and a nice contribution from the pale malts. MMM! Medium body is lastingly crisp and refreshing, with a bit of grapey stickiness. Nice rounding hops for balance, but the taste wears thin and plays too sweet after about six ounces. Other than that, a nice surprise. rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 7, 2013

From a 12 oz bottle obtained in a trade dated 8-1-09 which is two weeks from now so this must be the expiration date, rather than the bottling date. This poured the color of strong tea, and left an off white head and decent lacing. Nose is of caramel malts. Mouthfeel is faiirly soft and smooth. Flavor is malty with not much else showing . Kind of one-dimensional but refreshing enough to drink. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2006

Good looking beer, pouring the color of a shiny new penny with a two-fingered, off-white head. The aroma is a sweet malt, almost worty, with a touch of herbal bitterness. These balance out nicely in the flavor, creating a tasty, sessionable lager.

This brew poured a quick dissolving head. There was no lacing on the sides of my glass. There was no carbonation seen rising to the top. It had a fruity aroma along with a bitter taste. Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - APR 12, 2008
Bottled at Bishops Arms, Helsingborg. Amber coloured. Malty aroma with some unclean fruitiness and cardboard notes. Sweet malty flavour, again with a touch of cardboard and dust. patrick767 (4352) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 10, 2009
bottle - Pours light amber with a one finger head. It has a mild, malt aroma. The flavor is lightly toasted caramel malt and a bit of hops. It’s light bodied and while drinkable and not offensive at all, quite unremarkable.
