on tap-pours a white head and amber color. Aroma is faint sweet grain. Taste is sweet grain/light malt-sweet, faint hops. Smooth, mild, nice. OK carbonation. dmac (6259) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Draft at New Hope location. No Sir I didn’t really care for this one. Poured a clear orange/amber with a small white head. Aroma is very grainy with some sweetness from amber malts. Thinner body with overly aggressive carbonation. Flavor reminds me of stale bread. Oh well I guess they all can’t be Oatmeal Cookie Stouts. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Draft. Pours a copper body with a white head. Stinky grain y apples tones, malty body thin and sweet with a lightly bitter finish. I remember at the time thinking this was a better version of yuengling despite their difference in styles. Okay. Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Looks like water from a rusty bucket. Slightly toasty, slightly sweet aroma - all malt. Medium sweet, medium bittering. A little too bocky for my taste. Burnt toast aftertaste hangs around a little too long. Not bad, but not my style. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Tap at Princeton. Pours a perfect light amber/orangey copper with a nice sticky off white head and some great lace. Aroma is toasty, vienna malts- light caramelly and a nice earthy spicy hop balance. Fresh bready and toasted malts, light sugary sweetness, faint nuttiness and a nice crisp hop bitterness in the end. Smooth and refreshing. Great example of a hard style to brew.

On tap at the brewpub in Philadelphia. Pours a clear light brown with a thick light tan head. Aroma is quite fruity with raspberry, strawberry and light malts. Flavor is rather astringent. There is a general sweetness, apple and melon notes, but the flavors are muffled. Sweet for a vienna. Pretty decent but on the sweet/astringent side.

Handbottle shared by Paul. Nice pour, golden, decent head. Very very toasty aroma, a touch of wheat and veggies, nutty. Lots more toastiness in the flavor, sweet and veggies and great German malts. A very solid Vienna, dead on style. Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Light brownish gold color with aromas of toast and light caramel. The flavor has a nice vanilla and green hoppiness. Nice crispness and mellow, tasty roastiness. Good shit. PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Hand bottled by Dickinsonbeer. Pours a deep copper with an off white film of head. Nice lightly spicy Vienna malt nose with notes of fresh bread crust and a touch of underlying anise? Creamy body, with a firm clean malt flavor. Crackery Vienna malt presence with a touch of bread character. It stays nice and dry throughout with a smooth and dry finish as well. This is an awesome German-style session.
