ChainGangGuy (4941) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, reddish-brown body with a small, white head.
Smell: Somewhat meager aroma of toasted malts and watered down apple juice.
Taste: Toasted malts with a mild caramel sweetness. Mild spicy bitterness. Mild hint of fruit. Abrupt, drying finish. You get the idea.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body with a decidedly watery texture. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Not exactly something deserving of the label of "classic", but it’s alright as long as you fully understand you’re getting a light, though easy-drinking amber lager. FROTHINGSLOSH (8308) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark red-amber color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma was sweet, malty and nutty with a sour and lightly vegetal undertone. The flavor was very malty yet sour and tangy with a hint of caramel and raisin. The finish was long, malty and tangy. jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottle, pours a red brown color, with a thin white head, light malts followed by light hops both in aroma and taste. Nothing very remarkable, easily drinkable but nothing special. lucke13 (91) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - APR 1, 2008
Pours an orange-amber with white head. Aroma is toasted malts. Flavor is well-balanced and is dominated by malts. Finishes dry and clean. Light to medium-bodied, moderately carbonated and creamy. esjaygee (3902) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Amber with thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts & a little doughy. Light palate though decently balanced. Tastes of caramel and bread with a medium bitter finish.

On tap at Murphy’s on the U of Illinois campus. Amber colored pour. Lightly malty aroma. Lightly malty and spicy flavor, a little grainy as well. A pretty one-dimensional beer. Not offensive, but not exciting either. prosqtor (408) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Sampled at Food and Froth. A nice Vienna, which is not a flavor for everyone. A little stronger in flavor than most Ambers, with a nice nose and appearance. Pretty good. jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Bottle, not a great Vienna. Tried this after having knowledge that Stevens Point beers are not that great, so I probably learned my lesson on this one. It was pleasant enough for one bottle, but I will not purchase this one again. Once is enough. BrianHagmeier (299) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Beautiful red beer with a nice foamy head that hold well. Very wine/malt nose, like a wheat. Lite sweet malt flavor with a very wet finish that helps the malt flavor linger.
