3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big olí bottle. Pours light amber wtih a big pock-marked head. The nose is quite aromatic ... almost Saazy, almost Northwesty. It drinks with a mellow smoothness not uncommon to a "Vienna" but this has more built-in character than that, hinting at the more Americanized stylistic twists of hoppiness, hinting at a floral brew. Intersting brew. Bring on the hot dogs. (#3264, 1/1/2008)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear amber with a thin white head. Smells a bit like fresh corn tortillas, fresh baked biscuits, and maybe a bit of grassy hops. Taste was crisp and biscuity with rye, toast, and more rye, more tortillas...not my thing. But a good lager with a lot of flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
That label...Man, thatís just good old fashioned nightmare fuel right there. Copper, with a decent sized head. Grainy, rye-ish aroma. Some malty notes at first, then a few smokey, peaty notes. very clean tasting. Would be a pretty good summer beer. Thanks to Springslicker for sharing this one at Stevofest!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber colored pour. Tall foamy off-white head. Nose is caramel, soft citrus, light earthy and floral hops, some spicy notes and toasted malt. Taste is caramel, sweet malts, fruit flavors (mostly citrus but a hint of pear in there), spicy and earthy hops, light floral notes and some nuttiness. The body on this is a bit chewy for a vienna with a moderate carbonation and a medium overall feel. Ends with more caramel, sweet malts, fruit notes, peanuts, spicy and floral hops and bready notes.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This has a pour that makes one want to drink the beer, a rich amber/orange body highlighted in gols with a tall, dense ecru head. Great lacing. The aroma is caramel and a bit of toffee topped with sturdy hop scents of tart citrus fruits, flowers, and a bit of earthiness. This is well carbonated and spicy warm on the tongue. Itís got rich malty flavors balanced with the aforementioned hops, the latter leading to a crisp, dry, and lightly bitter finish. Interesting interpretation of a Vienna... and quite tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep orange/amber pour with white head. Aroma of peat and light malt. Nice maltiness and light hints of hops. Slightly thin but excellent carbonation. Over all a pretty solid drinker. I gave it one point for the label. I will say that were this beer available here I would drink it often. I donít know who brought it but thanks.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Copper gold, light head and lacing. Nose of toasted caramel and toffee with some subtle grassy hop notes. The flavor is somewhat dry with a bitter overtone, a ripe melon hint in the finish. Nice chewy body and a creamy tail. Good flavorful vienna, I might almost peg this for an ale with all of the malt complexities.
