3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beer from 22-oz bottle sampled at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits Friday tasting, pours a clear copper amber brew with an average off-white head. Dissolves to a fine film and foam ring. Aroma of multi-grain, some cotton candy, and floral hops. Taste is lightly carbonated with a light fruit character. Finish is a clean and crisp with a slight watery aftertaste.

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Light amber body with a light off white head. The aroma is light orange soda with some roasted peanuts. There is also some Juicy Fruit gum. The taste is light bread crust with some orange peel notes. A very light body that is slick and thin. Soft carbonation. This is unlike any other Vienna I have tried, more like a Premium lager or maybe even a watered down American Dark Lager. Decent stuff that I would not mind having as a session beer.

A light golden yellow color with a thick head. This was a pleasant lager to drink had some good charatcers and great flavors. Liked the beers underlying spicy flavor and finished quite nice.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a deep amber color lager with a nice foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of lightly caramelized malt is quite enjoyable. Taste of biscuit malt is very refreshing with limited complexity. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation as well. Well brewed and easily drinkable which I bet was the goal of this one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber colour with a good creamy head. Citrus hops, especially orange. Citrus meets toffee flavours, some hints of metal. Thirst-quenching.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy softly carbonated orange brown colored body. The aroma was malty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thick flavor contained notes of dark malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice deep hazy golden coloured body with a thinnish white head. Aroma of strong malt - seemingly rye? with some good hops and nice yeast thrown in the mix. Medium-bodied; Strong rye flavoured malty taste with some mild hops and a bit of nuts. Aftertaste shows more rye, alcohol, hops and a good alcohol overtone. Overall, a good spring/summery beer with the malt sticking out most. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from K&E Discount Beverage in New Paltz, New York on 19-April-2008.

Reviewed from notes.
Pours light copper with a nice white head and a good deal of lacing. The nose brings forward a pretty good amount of biscuit malt as well as some light hops. Good bready flavors throughout. Light to medium body with good carbonation. In the end, a nice craft example of the style and drinks quite well. Very good for what it is.
