3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber consumed at the Freak Bar at Coney Island. Pours copper with a tan head. Smells of sweet malt and some corn with some peppery splashes. Tastes very refreshing with some tea like elements and earthy hints. A fun beer at a fun and unusual place. Consumed with some of the freaks from the 10 in 1 freak show.

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)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to my brother for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a hazy brown/orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the toffee and caramel malts with some grass notes mixed in. The beer also smells a little bit like iced tea. The flavor is tea, earth, grass and biscuit malts. Very easy to drink and the alcohol is completely hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap. Pour clear amber with a small off-white head and minimal lacing. Aroma belies color; pilsnery dominated by grain and perhaps caramel. Pilsnery in flavor as well, with some caramel/roasted notes and a little bitterness in the body and finish, although I could not detect any hops-related flavor notes to go along with the bitter. Watery in mouthfeel. Its hard to believe that this color was not helped along given the lack of character in the beer (although perhaps the contract brewer screwed up?)

Very nice, rich lager. Bit of hops to it. Nice deep taste, unlike other lagers which feel too light. Well done.

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.

3.5 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!

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle, via EDA. Pours a clear copper body with a rather large foamy off-white head that retained fairly long due to the fizzy carbonation. The nose is slightly grainy and dry toasty malt with some caramel and a touch of floral hops. The flavor is slightly sweet with some toasty malt and huskiness. Some bright hoppiness on the back end makes for a fairly crisp finish. Doesnít really make me think Vienna too much, but itís pretty drinkable. Light to medium bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper beer, with a pillowy white head that is well-sustained by the bubbly body - spicy european hop aroma, with notes of butter and bread - the flavor is fairly robust - crisp hop bite up front, followed by some biscuit and gingerbread, then some butter and caramel come into play - some light peppery hints and a long-lingering hop profile - it gets a bit sweet near the end, but the hops do a nice job of keeping it in check - this seems more like a Vienna than anything else, and a fairly tasty one at that.
