Had this on tap at the brewhouse. Everyone inside seemed pretty excited that the first sixpack of Vienna Lager was on display. The appearance was a dark golden and there was a little bit of rye in the nose along with some mild sweetness. The taste was pretty similar, although nothing was very overpowering with it. Mouthfeel was pretty tame, and it was fairly drinkable--low abv and not too much complexity.

On tap at Old Hat. Average frothy white head with fair lacing and short longevity. Aroma of moderate beady malt and hints of butter. Initial flavor of smooth banana rye, had a metallic taste to it and the finish was sweet and smooth. Body is medium and slightly creamy texture. Finish taste was metallic and I could slightly taste the alcohol. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - DEC 15, 2004
On tap at Old Hat. Listed as "Amber Rhy" on the scoreboard but I’m inclined to think this was a spelling error by the brewpub staff. Cloudy orange-red body, thin light cream head. Sweet grainy aroma with notes of caramel. Flavor had the same caramely, fruity sweetness their stout and doppelbock had, but this beer was boring by comparison. Little rye character permeated the unrefined sweetness. Sharp carbonation, bland beer. Something for the uninitiated, I suppose.
