2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Biscuity, caramel on aroma and pallette. Middle of the road variation on the style. Not bad but not great either. Rather this than Bud.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty good for a Virginia microbrew, with almost none of the overhopped elements and a good balance between caramel sweetness and everything else (the vagueness of the latter is a big reason for the score being relatively low). Nice find at the LH lounge in Dulles

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vienna lager. "Vienna" is bit churched up though, like Joe Dirt trying to go by Joseph Dirtë. The Viennese, or Wieners, call it Wien, and this style is therefore called a Wienerlager, or maybe just "weenie" for short. For a weenie, this is in the upper ech’. The color is a clear deep penny copper, and there is a layer of whitish foam. The aroma is of caramel apple, nuts, and mild roast. The flavor is at the right sweetness level, and the bitterness is mild but there. Medium-bodied and slick on the palate. This one is a wiener - I mean a winner - but a wiener too.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Clear golden pour with copper glimmers and a tiny, fleeting, white head. I can’t pull anything from the aroma other than a malty, toasty note. Medium-bodied and thin with lively carbonation. The flavor is excellently balanced, but it’s also the dictionary definition of “mundane.” Crisp, clean, watery finish. Goes well with Mexican food.

12 ounce bottle poured into a teku. Pours a clear copper with a beige head of foam. Not much retention. The aroma is lightly bready and grassy. The taste is crisp grassy notes with a touch of spice and a caramely sweetness . Medium body and higher carbonation.

Malty, caramel sweet and papery dry aroma. The flavour is sweet caramel malt, dry graininess and some papery notes. A bit unbalanced.
