2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer reminds me of it’s near cousin, nay, it’s twin, Corky’s Ale Memphis Brew. I find them quite similar, except that the palate is less creamy, the aftertaste is less smoky, and the flavor tends to wear on a bit. This one is much more available than the Corky’s brew, so check it out. However, there are a lot better lagers out there...strange how a "lager" can taste so much like an "ale" from the same brewer....I wonder...

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Really pretty straightforward. There’s not much here. Pretty carbonated, but the head doesn’t last long. Kind of malty and all and yet not in the same way as say, Colt 45. There’s not much taste and it seems kind of watered down.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very refreshing. Pretty malty. A slightly bitterness in the end but not complex enough. Not hoppy at all.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very average beer, amber in color, decent white head, very little retention, a slight hint of roasted malt in the nose, malty flavor with very little hop character, a bit unbalanced

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber colored, medium white head. Caramel and roasty malt in the aroma. Flavor is malty and slightly saccharin. Sweetness is strong but could be worse. Finish is weak and unbalanced. Not one that I would recommend.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Not a ver exciting beer. Does have an amber yellow color, but slightly reddish as well. Small whitish head. Not much taste or palate. Not a beer that I would seek out.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This one has the biggest battle in that a lager is so difficult to have come out CLEAN. Well, I think it’s pretty rare that this one ever does.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Amber, with a small head. Very average looking. Smells coppery and bready. Tastes of copper... with not much else going on. Bland, boring, run-of-the-mill anyman’s beer here.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear light copper color with foamy off white head. Aroma is of beautiful malty goodness and a slight tin smell also. I'm not sure if I've had a Vienna before, but it5's crisp, light and refreshing. Although not usually a big fan of Abita beers, this one's okay.
