3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In the aroma its caramel malts and a noticeable hoppiness. The flavor is hoppy and slightly grainy with a lingering caramel malty finish. A very good amber, easy to drink but also with a pretty good flavor.

this beer has a great balance. malts are hops complement each other while not being overpower on either side. palate is thin with fizz and a mild softness. good session.

12 ounce bottle from Woodman’s West Madison. Pours a clear amber color with a thin fizzy head that fades quickly. Aroma of caramel with some fruity notes. The taste is sweet malts, caramel, floral hops and a slightly bitter, earthy finish. Medium bodied.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is dust and hoppy with a grassy/herbal hop. The malt is subtle and has a slight caramel quality. The appearance is light amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth from carbonation. Overall it’s a bit off style and sort of a mess but not bad.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

Listen, Wisconsin. I KNOW you can do better than this. New glarus. Ale asylum. Belgian red. Enough pale lagers and ambers. I don’t have time for this nonsense.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Dark honey pour with thin off white head and decent lacing. Nose is pretty benign with very little hops but some of that typical lager funk. Taste is more malty and not much hop profile. Bottle came as a trade extra so maybe it is a bit old. Fresh might bump up the rating by .3

Had on tap at the brass tap, served in a pint glass. Had an amazing amber hue that made my mouth water. Smell of some sweet malt and some caramel. Tated just like the smell, caramel at first then some bitterness and hops after. Solid brew, would have again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Steve’s Liquor and More in Madison, WI. Pours a crystal clear, slightly deeper golden colored body with a finger-width, frothy and fizzy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is a bit grainy with a light caramel sweetness, some bread, and a touch of floral hops. Flavor is similar. A light caramel up front with some bready, grainy cereals. A light floral and grass balances nicely before this dries cleanly with a light bitterness and medium length aftertaste. Medium-light, smooth body and fairly crisp, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty standard Vienna Lager. Not the most exciting, but well balanced and easy drinking. Enjoyable enough.
