2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2004 Nice sized white head. Very smooth with some bread and malt taste. However, as hopscotch said, thin and somewhat bland. Overall, a decent beer for drinking quickly. Better than most macros. Has notes of wheat bread in the aorma. Nice light taste with bread and metallic notes. Not a bad session brew.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Crystal clear, amber lager with a medium-sized, fizzy, off-white head. Good retention and good lacing.
The nose is of steak, butter and light, fluffy bisquits.
Very bland flavor, but well-balanced and refreshing. Some very light toffee and straw notes.
Thin, watery beer with a fizzy mouthfeel and a short, crisp, clean finish.

Amber coloured with malty nose. But the beer as defaults. DMS in mouth with some vegetable (celery) taste to it. My recollection of this beer is that it was better.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2010 (rerate - draught at Gumbo Shop) amber with small off white head. Aroma of caramel malt. Flavor is crisp malt, hint of sweetness. Very refreshing. Liked it better than I had the bottle I’d previously rated.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Really very mediocre. Slight caramel malt aroma when well warmed, but otherwise little aroma, little flavor (malty mineral water), slightly flat body, and only a reddish-amber color to recommend for it. Insipid.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a nice amber color with a thin, somewhat fizzy, nonlasting head. Virtually no aroma and very little flavor. I did have a small taste of malt but very little else. On the plus side, it is refreshing, but water usually is.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nice light copper colour with a proper one centimetre thick off-white head. Mild malty aroma, nothing too superb. Medium-bodied; Creamy mouthful; Short malty taste showing a few other characteristics, but really...not much. Aftertaste has just about nothing, only a subtle maltiness. Overall, this is one of my least favourite Viennas, and it's not recommended by me! I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber colored with a small diminishing head. Aroma is faint malts and hint of raspberries. Flavor is quite weak with a slightly sour lemony background and some malt present but not making themselves known. This is just too watery. Its ok but overall color me unimpressed.
