This beer had a large sized ivory head that contained fine-small bubbles.The body was cloudy and carbonation was observed.The hue was copper and the nose was malty.The flavor was malty and the mouthfeel was very smooth, delicate, easy on the palate, somewhat thin, and light bodied.This beer left a good lacing appearance.This was a beer that was very enjoyable to not only drink, but to rate as well.

I had this a few nights ago- I cant remember too much about it becuase i was a little drunk- but I do remember liking it. Lots of malt character but maybe lacking in the hop chategory- viennas are supposed to have a good balance and hop bitterness and flavor are suppposed to be noticable. Very smooth malty finish. Very nice.

Huge rocky head tops a smooth clear copper body. Nose is weak; some maltines, some fruitiness (berries) but pretty underwhelming. Im not all that impressed with the flavor, either. Reasonably malty and with a hint of hops, but really nothing stands out; moderately sweet, slightly thin on the body, hint of smokiness and earth tones, but just not much going on. I guess this is par for the course for SA these days, sigh.

Deep amber out of the bottle with an almost malt nose. Strong malty body with lots of caramel sweetness.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle] Pours a rich red color with a nice thick head and light carbonation. Very faint malty aroma. Nice malt flavor with a smooth and bitterless finish to it. A bit watery body however.

Not a bad offering, just not the best Jim Koch has to give. Nonetheless, its a mild beer that should entertain a few wannabe beer drinkers for a while. Heck, it entertained me for a little while.

Nice copper-orange-red color; big-bubbled, rocky head. Palate was fairly nice: appropriate carbonation, rich malts and a clean, non-cloying finish. Malts were surprisingly complex. Elements of roasted nuts, toasted bread, some burntness, a hint of sweetness and some sour milk (sounds bad, but it was a nice touch). Some bitterness comes through in the finish and carries into the aftertaste. Malt flavors overlap into the aroma somewhat. Have to say, this beer was much better than I expected it to be.

Nice amber color with smallish tan head. Nice raosted malt aroma. Medium bodied with a lively carbonation, which is surprising considering there wasnt much head. Finish is slightly bitter but I like it. Nicely done.

Medium sized tan head, good retention and lace. Clear amber color. Malty, grainy nose with hints of berries. Medium body. Medium sweet malt flavors, grainyness. Finish is medium sweet. A mediocre beer.

A huge surprise. This is a fairly hard brew to find, often sold in sampler packs, so I assumed it wasn't exactly the Boston Beer Company's finest product. Looking almost reddish in the wine glass I'm sipping it from (my mugs need washing) this Vienna is a remarkable pleasure to drink. I don't detect much hop action since the vienna malt does the heavy lifting. Loved it!
