A: Orange with a white head and nice lacing and retention.
S: Sweet, caramel notes and very clean.
T: Sweet yet dry on the finish with caramel and toffee notes.
M: Full and creamy with a clean, dry finish.
D: The dryness balances the sweetness very weel. It is something that I will keep going back to for more.

On tap at the VBC on 8/29/08.
Pours a clear copper amber with a 1/2 finger of brite-white head. A solid 1/2 finger of retention that flares up well, leaving a nice cascade of lacing down the sides of the glass. The aroma is light toasted malts, caramel sweetness, and floral notes with just a touch of citrus in the back.
The taste is sweet caramel malts well balanced by a firm hop profile that is all encapsulated in an overall toasty feel that lingers on the palette. The mouthfeel is medium modied with a nice crisp bite and firm carbonation.
Nice take on the Vienna Lager style, with good balance between the sweetness, hops, and toasted malts. Fresh and crisp, I drank this 20 oz pint in no time flat. It looks like this is going to be a new year-around on draft. I'm looking forward to many more pints of this.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub.
Served as a deep amber colored beer with moderate white puffy head.
Smell demonstrates some navice caramel notes, with a touch of floral hops.
Taste combines a nice caramel backbone, with a light hoppiness and a firm crisp character.
Leaves a light refreshing feeling in the mouth.
Graet drinkabilty, refreshing, paired well with my meal.

Pours a clear burnt honey color with a two-finger sandy head into a pint glass from my first growler! Lacing throughout the drink. Aroma is sweet caramel, nuts, a a bit of dark fruit. Mouthfeel is a little slick, medium-bodied with good carbonation. Taste is nuts, bread, caramel, very little hop presence. Overall this is a rather bland brew. Much better at the Victory brewery where I had it with the nacho platter (this was pretty good). Not a good score for my first growler-fill.
Edit: the Victory beer menu listed Almost Anton's with an ABV of 6.2%. Not 5.3%.

Draught @ Victory: This one pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma is of caramel malts and a hint of floral. The taste is mainly caramel malts, with some light spiciness. Nicely balanced with hops. Very smooth. This is a very drinkable beer. This might be a new name for the Sunnybrook Auburn.

Reviewed on 7/10/08. On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a dark, clear amber with a small head. Aroma of light fruits and butter. Flavor is all buttered toast with raspberry jam. Also some roasted/burnt malt and buttery popcorn. Very toasty. An interesting and tasty beer.

I had this on-tap at the Victory Brewpub in Downingtown, PA.
Appearance: The body is a clear amber color with a good sized white head that has good retention and ok lacing.
Smell: The aroma is close to being roasty complemented with an earthy hop smell.
Taste: The taste is dominated by sweet malt and has no noticeable hop flavor.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is crisp.
Drinkability: The drinkability is pretty good.
Don' t drink and review.

On tap at Victory on 10/26/08.
A - Clear medium copper/dark amber body with ruby red highlights and one-finger off-white head that receded into a patchy film but left lots of lacing on the glass. Sparse amount of carbonation present.
S - Caramel malt with bready and grainy notes and a touch of floral hops. Hints of honey sweetness and very mild tea-like hops in the back.
T - Quite malty with plenty of sweet caramel and bread at the forefront. Hints of floral and noble hops follow, offering a very light bitterness. Finishes with some mild toasted grains and dark malts.
M - Medium body with syrupy texture and moderate carbonation resulting in a pretty crisp mouthfeel. Minimal bitter finish with plenty of sweetness on the palate.
D - Solid, quaffable lager that's a bit on the dark malty side. Lots of malt flavor ranging from sweet to dark and toasted. Nothing off the charts, but quite drinkable and flavorful.
