Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2006
Bottled. Poured a clear lighter shade of caramel with a rather short-lived cap of off-white head. Nose was sweet with lightly-toasted caramel and some floral hops. Flavor was about the same, but felt like there was some artificial sweetener in there... lightly-toasted caramel stuck a bit at the finish. Lighter-bodied and smooth... cept for the finish. Bitterness rose toward the end, leaving a citrus and floral impression. Powerfully mediocre brew.

bytemesis (7419) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear copper, small beige head, decent residual and lacing. Aroma is a bit unappetizing, caramel, rotting grass, corn syrup. Flavor is much better, medium sweet, light bitter, corn and caramel. Medium body.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7161) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a large foamy beige head that left good lacing. The aroma was faintly tart with a note of cherries. The flavor was caramel, nut and sweet malts with light notes of cherry and berry. The finish was long and tangy with notes of nut and berry lingering. Medium body. Decent.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Pours a transparent copper orange with a nice, frothy off-white head. Toasted sugary caramel malty aroma has a touch of grainy Vienna malt and subtle lager yeast. Body starts with a pleasant malty sweetness revealing some earthy noble hoppy bitterness toward a smooth, bittersweet toasty finish. Fairly well-balanced and true to style, just not all that interesting.

drfabulous (7099) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Very basic lager. While a Vienna is the Rolls-Royce of lagers, it never impresses me. A rich marzen is much better. Not a beer Id buy.

Strykzone (6941) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2007
You gotta love that malty aroma. Amber in color with a nice thick head that stays around enough to provide a smoothness as it is sipped. A nice little zing to the flavor. Perhaps some hops sneaked in to give it a hint of a tart bite. This is primarily a malty beer with a nice roasted flavor. I like a sweet malty beer and this one pitches to my wheelhouse.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Bottle: Golden hue with a small fading head and no lace. The aroma has notes of vanilla, bready malts, toffee, aromatic german hops (Saaz anyone?), and apple peel. The taste has a smooth malty note with a light bitter and fruity finish. Not too complex but easy to drink. The feel has a soft velvety texture which added to the overall enjoyment. A solid brew and pure Vienna.

BuckeyeBoy (6545) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 1, 2006
On Tap. Pours a nice amber color topped off with a nice cream head. there is a hint of citrus and a hint of hops.

Pailhead (6525) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is very sweet and malty. Caramel and brown sugar. Pours a transparent brownish-orange with a white head that is short lasting. Malty caramel and brown sugar taste with some slight bitterness, sourness, and acidity in the finish. Overall a decent beer.

Braudog (6493) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 Rerate, 5/07 from a can aboard NW Airlines: sweet and starchy, this basically comes across as a colored macro crap lager. Original notes: [Orange-amber color with quickly surrendering head. Sweet juicy aroma. Flavors not as sweet as anticipated, but still predominately sweet malts with virtually no finish. OK.]
