Bottle, OBX, NC. Amber lager - good oily copper color, foamy white head initially, disappers quickly, solid mellow taste, slightly sweet malt and tracing of hops followed by a fairly crisp finish. Pretty darn good. GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Draught at the brewpub. Medium brown color with thin head. Prominent malty aroma. Malt flavor is also prominent with licorice and caramel in there somewhere. Tastes and smells very similar to the brewery’s Black Radish offering. Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2005
strong carbonation. went down smooth. reminded me of drinking a soda. Taste isnt’ very distinct. not a bad beer all in all. DocLock (11025) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2005
Pours copper with medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, some hops, and spice. Tastes caramel malty, with some hops and spice. Decent complexity. lamas (1655) - Washington DC, USA - APR 21, 2005
Bottle. Best before date: 06/05. Different label than that in the picture. Copper pour with thick and fluffy light-tan head. Slightly spicy, sweet and crispy aroma. Touches of caramel and some spices in the taste. Mellow sweetness with a bit of bitterness at the end. Light to medium-bodied. Fairly forgettable.

12 oz bottle. Clear amber-copper, frother moderately stable head...lightly spiced corn-sweet nose is fairly vapid...bit of floral character and a touch of woodiness in the caramel-laden, light and effervescent body...dull but drinkable, doesn’t seem close to a Vienna to me. crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Nice smooth and balanced malt flavors. No incredibly robust flavors here, just an enjoyable brew. Nothing wrong with a simple good beer. maltdog (626) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 9, 2004
BBD April ’04! Clear copper/amber, nicely carbonated, leaves a smallish dimpled camel head with poor retention and no lace. Nutty, maple-y autumn aromas... pecan pie, butter cookies, baked yams. Malt flavor is scoured by tongue-nipping carbonation. Green apple and some distracting acidity. Mild, well-balanced bitterness. Silky mouthfeel. Aftertaste of challah bread and tannins. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2004
On tap. Poured a medium golden color with a small white head. Couldn’t really pick anything special out of the aroma and tastes. Vienna is another style I don’t care too much for. Lighter and watery body. DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - OCT 15, 2004
This beer pours a dark copper color, perhaps amber and red with a slightly thick tanned head which faded off quickly after the pour. The aroma was funky with matted wet dog hair, malt, cardboard and spices being the predominant smell. Not the best aroma, but somewhat enticing. Flavor-wise we had the same scenario. This reminded me heavily of a winter beer as it is dominated by spices in the finish. It seems like a sickening degree of coriander and ginger in the finish...long lasting and cardboard dryness. Some malt, a hint of fruity peel, but it seems more like the spices than anything. I just couldnt get into all the spices this beer had to offer...it was dry and it just didnt have a degree of balance i would look for..
