4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the best lagers on the market. Good malty taste. Not too smooth but not too bitter. Better on tap, but still very good in bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Off-white head is medium and bit heterogenous, leaves small lacing. Color is faintly hazy, yellowish copper. Aroma is very nicely bloomy hoppy, toffy and a bit berried. A bit berried flavor is sweety malty and very much flowery hoppy for a lager. Nicely bitter. Quite light-bodied and tingly carbonated palate.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle on 4/23/2008. Very attractive tawny amber body with a firm, well developed off white head that leaves behind some thick bands of lace. Maltiness in the aroma comes through as dark toffee and caramel, complemented by a distinctly floral hop aroma. Medium body with an effervescence to match, and a round, smooth mouthfeel. Fairly assertive bitterness for the style, but the malt base provides sufficient balance. Finishes nicely dry and fairly clean. Certainly one of the better Viennas, at the hoppy end of the scale for the style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2008 Bottle. Pours amber, clear, with a two fingered off white head int a Sam Adams lager glass. Aroma is a bit of sweet malt mixed in with a nice hoppy floral aroma, though understated. Flavor is nice and basic: very drinkable balance of malt, caramel up front fading into a nice dry, hoppy bite at the end. Versatile, drinkable beer.
