2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear with a deep amber color. Malt / grainy light aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet and some noticable bitterness in the finish. Watery texture and all in all weaker than I would have liked. Drinkable but unremarkable

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Features a malty aroma and thick head. The flavor has a nice hop/malt balance but the color wasn't very amber.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very thin for a Vienna. They seem to emphasize the "Spring Water" thing a lot on the packaging. Perhaps they should try putting more of the "other" ingredients too! I suppose this lighter version of the European classic is more refreshing for those Southern palates, but I am not impressed.

Bottled. Not a bad beer. Little weak for a vienna but very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice roasted aroma, minimal head. Clean, sharp aftertaste, smooth and drinkable, but not overly great. A good amber.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Just boring. Amber appearance, very nice head. Smelled a bit roasty, but not much overall nose. The flavor was uneventful. Not too malty, not to hoppy, just sort of there.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It has a clear, amber colored body with a thin, white head. Faint aroma of malts with no hop presence. Medium to light body with moderate carbonation. The flavor is malty with some caramel notes and a faint burnt flavor. The finish is malty and toffeeish. Not bad, just an average amber ale that doesn't really impress.

2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
I had this on tap in New Orleans at the Bubba Gump Shrimp company. It has a nice aroma and color, and the flavor starts off smacking of caramel.
A really bad taste in the finish assaults the palate. I don't know what it is. Bad water? Rotten hops? There is a flavor in the background of this beer that I can't describe. But it's not good. In fact, it total ruins an otherwise good beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber color and lively carbonation. Distinct caramel malt aroma and flavor with some hops detected in the finish. However, the body feels a bit thin. Better than Dixie is the standard line for this beer in New Orleans. True, but that's not saying much.
