3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Some vaguely saazy hop stink to it (not skunky, but nowhere as clean and pure as the nose on the blonde) Vaguely sweet thick maltiness, some modified malt astringency. Well bittered but the finish is a bit sweet and lacking in focus. This behaves much more like a 6% alcohol lager than the sublime blonde does.

hazy copper, no head. Malty sweet aroma. Hoppy flavour, medium body. Tame aftertaste. I think this is my first 'vienna' and I have to say it was quite good!
