main impression...not enough flavor. slightly sweet, slightly malty nose. a tiny bit of bitterness in the flavor and finish. that’s it. how can their amber be so good, and the rest so boring?" mjg74 (3182) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Bottle from Ely, NV. Light golden pour, a hint of orange. Tart and somewhat citric aroma. Slightly sour flavor with a few hops. heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Bottle. The body was dark amber with a light khaki head. The aroma was sweet cake donuts with some fall leaves. There was also some fresh wood and caramel. The taste was toffee with some tea and bread crust. I thought that this was a nice example of the style. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Picked up a bottle of this while at Booze Bros., in Reno, NV. The beer pours out a medium gold color, slightly hazy with an off-white 1-finger cap. An arom of subtle sweet malt, with just a touch of floralness to it. It’s flavor is mostly an undefined sweetness with just a bit of citrus-like hops. Easy drinking beer.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy, orangey body with a thin, white head.
Smell: Vague pale and caramel maltiness with some light floral hints.
Taste: Hint of caramel malt and sweetness, and nothing more maltwise. Bit of spicy hops. Disappointing non-finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Not really much of a vienna and even that likeable for that matter.

Bucket of Blood (Skeleton Biker): Pours a transparent orange bronze with a well-lacing frothy white head. Crisp citrusy hoppy nose has a hint of pale maltiness. Body starts thinner and semi-sweet with an earthy bittering hop presence toward a drier bittersweet finish. BuckeyeBoy (8466) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2007
12oz bottle pours out a nice amber topped with a small white head. Aroma of light malt and a touch of hops. A little hop and some malt. not bad IndianaRed (5030) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle pours a slightly hazy light yellow amber. medium sized sandy colored head with spotty lacing. Light malt and papery aroma. Lightly toasted flavor, woody, slightly sweet and little hop bitterness. Like a somewhat watery amber.
Thanks to Buckeyeboy for this one.

Light brown with little head. Nutty and warm aroma. Biscuity with fruity hops. The flavor is a pleasing blend of citrus and warm malts. Finishes mostly fruit with a bitter hint.
