Red-amber. Malty, soft & balanced. Well made, but not the most complex of festbiers. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 4, 2002
Pours a deep amber with a nice beige head. Aroma is strongly caramel. Flavor is watery caramel, with some German-style bitterness carrying through to the swallow. Decidedly bland. Drake (13741) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2008
16.9 oz. bottle from Wine Warehouse. Golden-red color with a thin head that disappears quickly. Faint fruity and grainy aroma. Tart and nutty taste with fruity notes. Possibly infected. Dogbrick (13026) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Courtesy of City Beverage in Winston-Salem. Pours a rather dark amber color with a medium light tan head. Fair lacing throughout the glass. Lots of malt as well as some toffee in the aroma. Kind of thin-bodied and a little on the watery side, with some malt in the flavor. However it is not as much as the nose indicates you should expect. There are also touches of caramel and hops but again not in any great amount. The finish holds some sharpness on the tongue but it isn't all that flavorful. Overall this beer was a bit of a disappointment. hopdog (12584) - 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.

Tap. Light raspberry malt aroma. Dark amber color with moderate head. Light sweet malt flavor. Light body. Very light but tastes good - nice for the style. hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2003
Hazy, dark amber lager with a copper tint. Small, creamy, khaki-colored head with great retention.
The aroma is fruity and sweet. Maple syrup, toffee and red apple.
Very malty, rich and buttery flavor with some light notes of fuzzy fruit. Well-balanced regarding malt versus hops.
Medium-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Short, astringent, dry finish. Reminiscent of some of the better Scottish ales I've tasted. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007
