Amber color, obviously. there were certinaly malt traces, but I found the hops stood out more and stole the show. It made for an interesting taste; not sure I like it.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle is clear red with thin white head, aroma brought notes of caramel some slight grass and grainy notes to it, hints of biscuit, yeast, some spice as well. Taste is pretty caramel forward, hints of spice and grass, touch of yeasty notes finishing fairly clean, slight hop bite as well.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, amber body encircled by a thin ring of white bubbles.
Smell: Simply a light aroma of sweaty grains, bruised citrus fruits, and perhaps a slight floral touch.
Taste: Light toasted maltiness with a mild sweetness. Very, very slight nuttiness. Floral hint. Spicy hop character with a medium bitterness to balance. Fairly clean finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: There’s not much to say except that it’s a nice, easy-drinking lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice deep golden amber pour with slight off white head and lace. Aroma of light caramel malt and a hint of spiced hop. Sweet caramel malt followed by a very mild hop bitter. A lingering sweet to bitter taste. A bit over carbonated for me. Still a decent beer.

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.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2004 Looks good, huge cream colored head. Beer is amber. Fruit aroma is ruined by alcohol. Some malt in the flavor with a a little hops. Being a Vienna, I wasn’t expecting much, and this beer didn’t offer anything.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orangish amber with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is slightly sweet toasty and vienna malts with just a touch of hops. Sweet and clean malty flavor with a fairly decent amount of hops for the style on the finish. There’s a bit of huskiness to it, but it’s pretty minimal. Medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. A nice lingering bitterness keeps it from being too sweet and one dimensional. Prettty damn good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper color with orange tinted foam. Caramel aroma. Flavor offers plenty of unmalted barley along with toffee and fruit. Hops increase as the beer warms as do spices. Dry bitterness. Enjoyable and easy to drink. Nice beer.
