3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark, hazy golden-orange color. Thick, foamy, sticky off-white head. Sweet citrusy, grapefruit, caramel aroma. Flavors were nicely balanced between sweet malts, citrusy/grapefruity hops, caramel, and brown sugar. Soft, sticky mouthfeel that finishes very dry. Really good, well balanced, complex and interesting stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Quite simply one of the most pleasurable beers to drink. Probably the hoppiest lager I’ve had in a while. I drink this all the time. One of the few beers that can mix great taste with a "i could drink 8 of these" drinkability

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I had this on tap and I have a funny feeling it was either a bad keg or dirty lines as it had an odd odor and a very bizarre taste. I will have to try again!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden color with foamy light-tan head. Has sweet (like honey) and hoppy aroma. Nicely balanced and finishes with a lingering bitterness. By far the hoppiest and most flavorful lager I’ve had.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light amber color with one finger head. Not much aroma here, a little malt and a little floral. Taste is spicy hops with some lemon. Finish is dry and bitter. Biterness does not make me want to take another sip. Not my idea of a sessionable beer. I would pick it over the macros but probably will not seek this one out again.

[218-20060303] 355mL. Sweet citrus hops and lightly earthy aroma with hints of apple and lychee. Clear, light amber orange body with a small off-white head. Very grassy hops flavour with a bitter aftertaste, subtle apple lychee fruit. Medium body, fairly smooth. Nice hops, great blending.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A bit shy aroma. Great balance between hops and caramel in flavor. Smooth and tasy. Yummy. But is a Vienna?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap, at LGA’s NYSB. Pour is golden, though a deep golden. Aroma is citrus and a bit of hop. Taste is a fairly normal lager taste, nothing too special - though a bit more fruit - citrus than expected. Refreshing.

out of a can! Huge off-white head and a clear copper body. Pretty big saaz hop in the nose and flavor. noticeably malty, more than a pilsner but not as rich and sweet as the only other vienna i can think of, GL eliot ness. A really good beer and cheap too. good sessioning. you can’t beat a craft beer in a can, but i think i might like Pikeland pils a little more than this.
