Orange amber with a small light tan head. Nutty marzen aroma. Flavor is quite nutty and malty. Hops are subdued. Medium body with a livel fizzy mouth-feel. Overall not too bad for what it is. walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Draft, Luigi’s Downtown, Harrisonburg VA. Reddish gold color with off-white head. Light sweet malt nose with a bit of astringency. Flavor follows: light sweetish malt with a bit of crisp underlying bitterness. Smooth texture. A solid drinkin’ beer, and we gotta like those.... bubbleflubber (2227) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2006
Draught from the brewer. Pours amber to the glass with a nice medium head which leaves little lace. A caramel citrus nose, the flavors are similar. This is decently hopped, with notes of caramel, orange, citrus and maybe a hint of grapefruit. A medium-lingering bitter finish introduces a slight pine hop, cleansing the palate well. This beer feels a little more complex as the brew warms, indicating the initial pour may have served a bit too cold. Honestly, this doesn’t remind me much of a Vienna. It is extremely indicative of an "IPA light". GuinnessGal (93) - Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2008
This is one of my favorite local beers. Great taste for the price and easy to find in Central Virginia stores! vadavid (142) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Pours a bright amber-orange with a think white long lasting head. Aroma is very light, grainy malt. Toasted malt flavor. Sharp hop bitterness. Very carbonated. Easy to drink.

Aroma - Straw, grass, faint floral hops
Appearance - Bright, clear orange/gold, medium white head and some decent lace
Flavor - Solid malt base with light caramel and toffee, very subdued and indistinct bitterness is secondary
Palate - Light to medium body, medium carbonation, very slight stickiness
Overall - The typical maltiness of a Vienna, some good flavors, and a good representative of the style.
On tap at The Biltmore in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a dark orange with minimal to no head. Light carbonation with caramel and some orange aroma. Bittersweet flavor, but smooth finish. Not too bad. biznizness (1128) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Had this on tap at the Brickhouse in Davidson. I see they are bottling now, which is cool. V and I visited the pub in Charlottesville last year. Enjoyed this lager. beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2009
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with dkachur. Pours a hazy amber with a moderate yellow/white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Mild aroma of malt along with a few notes of orange. The flavor is again mild malt with just a bit of orange. A pleasant fresh bread flavor emerges in the aftertaste and lingers for a few seconds beyond the swallow. Mild-medium bitterness.
