3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden-copper body. Malty nose of bread crusts and light spice. Nice malty character, medium sweet with moderate bitterness in the finish. Fairly complex in subtle ways and not at all cloying. A nice, subtle Vienna. Not bad for the requisite brewpub amber.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2005 Amber with thick white head. Aroma of sweet malts, cereal grains, and bready lager yeast. Taste is grainy, with a chewy bready character. Well crafted and balanced lager.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear sparkling amber, creamy white head. Nose of toasted caramel and toffee malt, touches of bread throughout. Nice balance with toasty flavors of more caramel and toffee, and a light bitterness keeping the sweet malt in check. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, clean toasted malt finish. A good session brew…

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewery: Poured golden yellow/amber with a small white head. Light earthy aroma with some fruit. Mild earthy hop flavor with a lightly bitter finish. Very well done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft, tall lager mug. Caramel malt (M); flowery, citric hops (L). Straightforward, clean lager aroma. Light ruby-red color with a thin eggshell colored head. Moderately sweet flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: tasty, but a little watery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at brewery - Aroma of toasty lager malts with a touch of hops. Pours copper with a small head and decent lacing. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is crisp and clean. An easy drinking brew.

not my favorite beer, but also not my fave style either. virtually no hops to speak of, with some carmel and malt and some earthy flavors. blah, take it or leave it, just very basic for 5 seasons IMO

Pretty enjoyable, I am glad this is on tap everytime I visit Atlanta. This is always a good first beer of the evening at the brewery. Hoppy, somewhat herbal nose and just a hint of sweet caramel as well. Pretty savory on the palate, with some sweet breadiness, but could have just a bit more fruit characters.
