3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Oto Market in Sacramento, CA. Pours light golden amber with a slight white head. Aroma is light fruit - melon? grape? Med body or nearly. Flavor is grapey with a touch of citrus, plus breadiness. Certainly much tastier than the average sweet Vienna.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355mL thanks to MrChopin’s little sister. Pours a clear, bright golden. Weak white head. Weak carbonation. Nose is thick orange candies, cheesecloth, some IPA style aromatics, American style citrus hops, fresh dough, bread crust. Taste is quite nice- bitter, grassy, sugar cube, fresh bread, flour, so much snappy pils malt. Long, bitter, dusty finish. Actually very enjoyable, bitter, dry. Impressive. Some rustic grain flavor is quite nice making this pilsener instead of IPA in profile.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Molto. Pretty medium amber-orange color with lace. Grassy hop nose, light Vienna malt and citrus. Light and clean flavor, crackers, with bread, light caramel and big grassy hop. Very drinkable and nice. A bit of Nelson-esque catpiss too, but just a touch. Much better than the old recipe.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sort of APA-ish. Sweet malts and a bit of citric hops. Sticky sweet but balanced by firm bitterness. Kind of overly heavy but pretty decent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
5.5%. Vienna. Dark straw colour. Soft malty run off on the nose. Medium full body. Rich though generic malt body with soft but firm bitterness. Ok.
