egajdzis (6556) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Poured an amber color with a large, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of nuts, dark grains, and caramel malts. Taste of sweet caramel malts, nuts, toffee malts, and toasted dough. Certainly one of the more solid Mexican beers.

riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Malty with notes of chocolate and toffee. A little earthy hops too. Light bodied with not a ton of flavor. Just subtle sweetness and a lightly crisp finish.

Smells a little caramel/chocolate. This is a pretty tasty beer, with some chocolate malts and a little hops. I always seem to prefer viennas to the regular ambers. Pretty good.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2006
This poured a dark orange/brown with a beige head that didn’t last too long. Nice aroma of caramel and slightly burnt toast. That burnt toast picks up perhaps a notch too much in the flavor, but this remains an enjoyable, sessionable Vienna.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 16, 2006
Bottle: Dark amber mahogany color, light head and lacing. Nose of sweet plum and toffee, light roast and rye. The flavor is very nutty and toasty, a bit of plum and cherry. The finish is sweet, a bit husky and decently plain in the mouthfeel and body.

3.2
KansaiBeerLvrs (5141) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle at the Sky Bldg Mexican festival. A cola brown pour with a plum and caramel aroma. Chewy grains, a bit of ash and nuts. Very thin bodied but overall ok.

3.6
FlacoAlto (4182) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 23, 2006
Pours with a dark brown body that shows brilliantly clear, deep ruby highlights when held up to the window. The head is initially three fingers thick and is a light brown tinged, tan color. As the head falls back into the beer it leaves a touch of lacing on the sides of my glass. Rich, sweet, concentrated malt notes great my scent receptors as I take my first draught of the aroma. Caramelized sugars and toffee notes yield to toasted malt notes that remind me of richly browned fresh from the oven bread crust. This beer has a nice hearty aroma, that makes me anticipate a rich chewy flavor while still being light and quaffable.

The taste is only lightly sweet up front, it becomes a touch more sweet towards the middle and this lingers on into the finish. The sweetness is rich and complex, quite focused on caramelized malt sugars and Mallard products. The beer finishes with a touch of toasted, almost roasted, character that helps to balance the rich sweeter malt notes. A light herbal hop spiciness rides throughout the flavor profile; it is light enough that it just provides a backdrop to the focused malt notes. It also finishes with a touch of hop bitterness, again just enough to let you know it is there. This beer remains light and quaffable on the palate, yet at the same time is chewy and richly malty.

I am really enjoying this beer right now, it really has nailed the quaffability & richness of a good Munich Dunkel. This is a beer I can see buying more of.

Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JAN 9, 2010
Nice beer this, but a little watery, very aromatic, but although a little smoky it was perhaps incipit. I expected a little more.

3.3
Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2009
12oz bottle 4/2/09 (Binny’s Naperville)-Pours a dark brown with a small covering for a head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste of the same with a bit of hops and caramel thrown in. This medium bodied brew is quite tasty and better than I expected.
