Bottle. Pour dark amber. Good taste. Full bodied and what an amber lager should be. Very enjoyable. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 6, 2009
Pours brown with a large white head. Smells of sweet malt, citrus, tea. Tastes tarte and sweet with soe sugary hints on the finish. Braudog (6669) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2009
One more carted by my wife from NY for me. First impression: Dark! It pours reddish brown, syrupy almost. As I drink, this to me borders more on a brown ale or Irish ale with a robust flavor ... quite good, not really what I’d call an Amber lager. (#3469, 11/2008)
kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2008
12 oz bottle, from the brewery. Pours a clear dark amber, maybe even a bit too dark for a Vienna, with a small fizzy beige head that vanished completely. The nose is dry toasty malt with a certain amount of huskiness, a little dark caramel, very slight floral hops. Malt forward flavor, sweet, toasty, caramel, even a little nuttiness Finishes a little on the husky side for being a lager, minimal hoppiness from from to back. The flavor and the mouth feel are not especially clean or crisp like I want from a Lager, and there’s really not a whole lot of Vienna malt character. Medium bodied with fizzy moderate carbonation. This is certainly drinkable, and not a bad beer per se, but it pretty well misses the mark for a good Vienna to me. beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 18, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with a thin-moderate off-white head that lasted through the first two sips and left no lace. Mild aroma of malt and not much else. The flavor is weak malt that is both bready and a bit grainy. Flat would be the best way to describe the flavor. There is some very minor hops at the finish. I would not call this a bad beer, but I would say that it is dull.

Bottle. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Sweet nutty with german style malts. Caramel, toffee, and a thin body. Not for me. can8ianben (1538) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2012
I don’t remember much about this one - other than that it was pretty sweet for my taste. Had on tap at the brewery/vineyard. Most of their beer was pretty forgettable. j12601 (10871) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby amber with a thin beige head. A touch of paper and old malt, hints of prune. A bit papery, old plum and prune, touches of malt. Medium bodied, toasty, warm malt. The paper notes kill it though. I’d imagine this was decently crisp and tasty a few months back. Alas. BrewBoxer (2632) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Draft at the guilty goose. Deep amber color. Reddish. Malty sticky flavor. No head. Eh ben4321 (6389) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2017
12 oz bottle from the brewery.
Amber pour, fizzy tan head. Light, bready malt aroma. Bit of grain. Milder taste. Lively feel. Fine.
