2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Toasted malt aroma, medium sweet taste, very mild bitterness. Honestly not bad considering the artificial flavor, but I definitely wouldn’t classify it with the craft brews in the area.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich dark amber in color that has a thick frothy head that never completely diminishes. Has a light hoppy scent with a hint of spiced malt. Taste is a medium bitter hop with a light malty finish. Goes down very light for a dark beer.

Can. Brown body, opaque, with a medium light brown head. The aroma is licorice, with a nice ale hop touch. The taste is strong of licorice, salty with a full malt finish. Very pleasant!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Chocolate syrup, malt, and herbal hay aroma. Dark brown with large light tan head. Sweet chocolate, roasted barley, and mildly bitter hay and ash flavor. Good body. Kind of dark for a Vienna - seems more like a dunkel in both appearance and flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark, ruby-lit brown/black with a frothy beige head.
Dark, roasty caramel, chocolate aroma.
Flavour is roasted and rich....slightly black-pepper accented caramel malt..chocolate, cola.....maybe even a slight whiff of smokiness.
Light, but not watered-down...
Curious about the low ratings on this....I thought it was a bit dark for the style, but pretty tasty.

Can in Toronto. Pretty typical dark lager (per ’schwarz’ over in SEE), lighter brown-black body, clear. Light sipper, clean with some caramel and roast. Ok.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle.
Nice smooth feel, judge right amount of soft carbonation, and good looking, with a large pillowy head.
The aroma is only acceptable but the flavor is fine.
Good dark lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
473 ml can. Full transparency, I don’t know how long this has been in my fridge. Pours a clear, light, nutty brown with a large beige head. Aromas were bread and chalk. Tastes are grainy, roasty, and on the dry side. Light bodied with a short, mild tinny finish. Not offensive but not much in the way of character either, it is a lager after all.

Very dark ruby red-brown colour with a tan head. Good retention and moderate lacing. Aroma of toasty nuts & earthy. Tastes of bread with a trace of nuts and caramel. Medium body & carbonation. Just ok.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2015 Sweet aroma of caramel and dark roasted malt. Clear mahogany colour. Sweet front with short bitter finish; more malt and caramel flavour. Light body with high carbonation. More interesting than the average typical lager.

Enjoyable drink. Nice smell. sweety taste. However, it needs something more intense, I assume.
