3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Blind Tiger. Amber-orange beer. Aroma is a bit sweet and viennaish. There is sort of a sticky sweetness and a bit of candyish sweetness. A hint of caramel and a bit of toastiness. Not bad per se, but it is kind of strange.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at BT. Pours a nice mostly clear bright reddish amber with a nice fluffy yet short lived head. Aroma is nutty, sweet caramel, sharp sweet brown sugar, and the modelo yeast kick - but not as herbal or spicy as the golden- just more sweetness. Flavor is also honey sweet with some straight forward crystal malts, light toasty character- but not enough of that and no nutty hint. About between an american amber lager and a mexican amber- quite far from a real vienna. Not a bad mexican lager.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom... Poured amber/orange with an off-white head, nice lacing. Malty, cracker-like aroma. Foamy palate with citrus fruit flavors. Candy-like and a subtle, vegetable earthiness from the hops. Finished grainy and malty.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Seraveza. Amber body with a small white head. Grainy sweetness throughout. I don’t remember the last time I had Modelo, so it is a bit hard to compare, but sure, tastes kinda like that. Sides sweeter, but I didn’t really enjoy much of this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted 4/7/11. Pint from The Royale (St. Louis). Filtered with an amber hue. Spotty off-white head. Aromasof mild cereal grains. Medium bodied with a really nice toasty, nutty flavor. A somewhat ebbed effervescence only adds to the malty richness. A nice rolling palate with this awesome shortbread cookie flavor. A really nice body and solid flavors! This was WAY better than I expected or anticipated! Mild and tame, but spot on for what it is!

Draught. Poured red with thick white head. Much lacing. Malty and biscuity aroma with a hop edge. Malty flavour, tasted like a good helles despite the colour. Finish a bit thin, some hop in there. Parts didn’t quite marry/
