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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
That label...Man, that’s 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 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.

3.6 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 don’t know who brought it but thanks.

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.

3.6 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.

3.2 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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Citrus hops blend nicely with rich toasty, bready, biscuity malt character in the nose along with a touch of cabbage. Hazy deep amber coloured body is topped by a decent, fizzy, tan head that recedes rapidly to a lasting cover. Fairly sweet up front with some citrus and floral hops and moderate, offsetting bitterness. Sweetness lingers in the aftertaste. Medium light body feels a bit thin and carbonation is underwhelming, Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in Jul-09.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big bottle and a small bottle. Dark copper tinted amber with almost a finger of white-ish foam. They pack a lot of ingredients into some of these beers. Kind of a cedary woody malt scent. Lots of spice, caramel, nut, wood and biscuit with a lasting hop aftertaste. Pretty solid.
