On tap @ the brewpub. Light copper, lasting creamy head. Lightly caramelized grains, soft fruity accents, clean finish with low bitterness. This is sessionable as hell! For whatever reason, I really dug this.

I was disappointed with this one. Not a lot going on. Some sweetness as per the style, but kind of bland.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle purchased at the brewery pours a pale amber color with a small off-white head that leaves some spots of lacing on the glass. Aromas are subtle grains and hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with some fruity esters and nuts finishing with a mild grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. One of the better lagers I have sampled.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at the pub in Regina. The pour is a pale golden orange with nice sparkly carbonation and a finger of yellowish head. The nose is bready, toasty and fruity with nice floral and citrus hop notes. Toasted bread and nutty malts in the middle with sweet fruits and a light hop on the finish. A bit of a lingering hop aftertaste. The body is medium with a nice smooth mouthfeel. overall, this is a great Vienna.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rich amber colour with a medium off-white head, fairly clear. Aroma is of bread and caramel malts, and slight fruit scents, reminds me of orange and banana. Taste is matly and slightly sweet with a mild bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation and smooth mouth feel. Overall and enjoyable brew, quite enjoy the style too.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled sample via paco. Pale orange in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of toasted bread, munich malt, orange marmalade, and light floral hops. The toast flavors are more toasted-nutlike. The bread element in the mouth is a bit more untoasted. A bit of spice, and a bit more of the malty orange thing. More hop flavor than expected, but still within style guidelines. Medium to light bodied. Very well executed, and very drinkable. Well done!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light bready malt forward aroma is pleasant if simple. Clear deep copper coloured body topped by an almond coloured head that recedes to partial cover with some lacing. Bready and toasted malt flavour with decent botterness and lightly spicy, earthy hop flavours. Piquante carbonation is quite assertive. Rather dry medium body. Sampled on tap at the brewpub before the Als/Riders game.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2006 650ml Bomber filled fresh from the brewery 1 week ago. Pour puts a beautiful red-copper lager in the glass with a very slight protien haze...has a puffy, clinging 2 finger sandy colored cap which lasts well and laces. Moderate carbonation. Aromas of rich toasty-sweet red Munich type malts and just the slightest whisp of herbal noble hopping. Meduim bodied, gentle creamyness to the mouth feel....wunderbar! Starts out with a nice infusion of toasty-nutty, bread- like malts that give a impression of liquid Bavarian walnut loaf then the attenuated nobels give some herbal buffering to the rich toasty malts midway and produces a soft elegant mix of maltiness and herbs that dries out and bitters the crisp finish just enough to keep the drink from being sweet.... appetising biscuit snap in the after taste as well as slow hop bittering... A great Canadian Vienna true to style and infinately drinkable. Absolutely no technical flaws. Bravo to the brewer for recreating this elegant, subtle and increasingly uncommon lager style!

(Draught) 5 oz sampler tasted at the brewpub on December 29, 2005, for $1.50. Lasting large white head with a golden-orange body. Roasted and filling bready nose - yet the flavour was somewhat thin and mildly buttery and acidic. I definitely enjoyed the Classic Vienna more...
