2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2011 Fairly spicy and moderately roasted with a touch of hops are the primary characteristics of this medium bodied beer. I was surprised they called it a Vienna on here. Also somewhat strong alcohol note for its somewhat restrained ABV.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours a lightly hazed, golden-copper colored body with a thin, beige head that dissipates quickly and leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma is sweet, bready caramels and toffees with floral fruits and some toast. Some cookies and a very light hop. Flavor is similar. Sweeter caramel cookies and bready toffees with some toast, floral fruits, and a light, earthy bitterness. Clean and dry with a short aftertaste following a light to medium body and soft carbonation. Overall, a pleasant enough vienna. Solid, sweet malts with some toast, fruit, and light bitterness for balance. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted 6/17/10. 12oz bottle. Filtered with a dark golden hue. White lacing head. Aromas of faint caramel and citrus. Medium bodied with a toasty malt character. Subtle bitterness mixed with a slight nuttiness. Really holds up for the lower alcohol percentage.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with hints of amber. No real head, aroma is strong of malts and carmel sweetness with some spicy hops. It doesn’t taste nearly as malty sweet as it smells. More of a smooth, slow, broad bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose is that of toasted bread, some caramel malts, and a hint of iced tea. Don’t get much in the hop department except a light earthy note perhaps. Pours golden amber with a decently lasting head, no lace, but with nice big visible carbonation. Caramel up front, toast on the mid palate, light earthy and tea like notes in the finish. Drinks easily and has no flaws.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice, clear, amber with good lacing. Mild citrus ( grapefruit) gives it a pleasant bitter flavor. No bitter aftertaste with a good hop/malt balance. Dont always find that. First Skal for me. Very drinkable.
