2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
It pours a dark ruby red with a thin white head that leaves some significant lacing. The aroma has some semi-sweet malt flavors. The taste is fairly heavy on the malt but still pretty well balanced. It’s clean, crisp, and certainly drinkable at 6.5%. Not all that bad!

This dark Vienna has a nice taste of hard roasted malt, good notes of dark chocolate and a little hint of coffee. It tastes a bit of a sugary sweetness and have little character of a dark mild ale. Hop bitterness is very discreet. It is a successful dark storage leaning close to the Czech types, which obviously has been the inspiration for this stock. Tasty and lovely.

Clear brown with a quickly fading big white head, decent lacing.... Sweet malty aroma, smells sticky, not a hop presence at all... Flavor is not bad at all for what it is, not as sweet as it smells, a small touch of hops, decent flavor... Easy drinking, sweetness cuts the alcohol nicely...

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pretty much just a pale lager that’s not...pale...Light notes of caramel and pale malts. Grainy and bready on the nose and taste. Quite drinkable and different but not the best by any means.

Well I enjoy the Beerlao Pale lager despite not caring for that style much, and I love love love Viennas, but unfortunately I think they dropped the ball on this. It’s hard to swallow it down, really. Nice that they tried, at least.

Had this one bottled. Hazy, medium brownish pour topped with a one finger eggshell head and an earthy malty nose. Surprisingly grassy and vegetal, a little offputting. Muddy finish.

Poured from bottle to glass. Dark copper brown hue with tan head that settled. Aroma is bready, grain, cereal, toffee, caramel. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet with a clean finish. Overall this beer is ok.

I had this beer poured from the bottle while in Luang Prabang, Laos. The beer had a dark brown color with a very small off-white head which quickly disappeared without cling. It had a grainy, malty aroma with some touches of earthy hops as well. The flavor was slight sweet and malty, but also had a strong bitter grainy component. It had low carbonation and very little fizz, and was fairly smooth with a light, wet mouthfeel.
