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. Doesn’t really make me think Vienna too much, but it’s pretty drinkable. Light to medium bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation.

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.

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.

3.5 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 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very good for the style. Light hop aroma. Flavor has malt and enough hops that I might call this an English pale ale, almost. Creepy label.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. A little more complex than I had assumed. Deep bronze amber color. Rich and malty, with the sweetness pleasantly balanced by the subtle dryness and complexity of the hops.

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.

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

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 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.
