madsberg (11613) - Sborg, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2006
Bottled: Mrk gylden farve. Tget. Beige tt skum. Sd, frugtig, sukret honning aroma. Smagen er ogs frugtig og sd. Ret tynd krop og tendens til at vre vandet. Lette urte og blomsternoter, men dog overdvet at maltnoterne. Lidt karamel. Er let bittersd i enden. Let at drikke.

shrubber85 (10959) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 15, 2007
Bottle. Sugary apple/cherry malt aroma. Amber with nice head and lacing. Sugary caramel malt flavor. Not horrible for a Vienna - par for the course for Matt.

Bottle. Yellow port. Light head. Malty and grainy aroma. Nothing amazing here. Grains, boring hops, bitter. Meh.

slowrunner77 (10785) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 2, 2014
another rather thin and lightly flavored beer from Saranac, but the body is crisp and the beer well balanced between carmel malt and spicy hops. it still comes off a little bland, but not bad."

hopscotch (10769) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Clear, orange ale. Small, fizzy, white head. Good lacing. The nose is soapy and beefy. Well-balanced, crisp, tangy flavor. A bit grassy. Light-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Not a bad example of the style, but not a good one either. Not one of my favorite styles to begin with, but a good Summer thirst quencher!

adnielsen (10573) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle @ home, courtesy of BLACKIPA!!!!!! EYE OF THE SPONGER!!! FUCKEN A BRO!!!! Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with a lasting cream colored head. Toasted malty, caramel, fairly dry, herbal, lightly grainy aroma. Lightly fruity, caramel, a touch nutty, mildly hoppy flavor. Cool name, not so cool flavor. Cheers Michael James!

faroeviking (10295) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 18, 2007
Bottle. Nice amber colour with a medium fair lasting head. Aroma of malt, hoppy with a bit of caramel. Nice flavour of malt, nice fruitiness, some caramel. Little bitterness in the malty finish. Fresh and tasty brew.

DocLock (10215) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2004
A standard amber, with typical amber taste overtones. Not great, not bad, middle of the road. Subtle caramel, toffee, and malt flavors. Good complexity.
