2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very malty with a bit of a strange taste at the end. Maybe that is the roast nuts but I am not entirely sure. Not terribly exciting.

Draft. Amber with offwhite head. Aroma has malt and bread. Taste is roasty and malty, very little hops. Pretty smooth, drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromas of toast, apple butter, and toffee. Clear, dark gold, with low retaining white head. Toasty, nutty, and dry, with prevalent, tannic, hop bitterness. Light-medium body, decent carbonation, finishes with clean, dry malty tones.

Faint smell I’d expect from a lighter style lager. Malty raisins with little hop finish.

The aroma is almost non existent with sweet toasted malt, cola, and grass. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The taste is true to the style. The palate is smooth. Overall a good Vienna with an American touch.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Finally, a vienna that is not cloying, yet very fresh. Copper collored lager. Nice head. Smell is neither cloying nor sweet, just palin decent beer. Has a tad of that slaggy thing going on but overall this is a decent tasting well behaved beer. Fairly mild and easy to get along with. Goes down well. Appeals to the lager lover in me. Nice overall beer experience.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 11/21/12
Aroma: This one has a fairly malty nose, with toast and caramel being the main components
Appearance: It pours a clear caramel color, with a white head that leaves medium-heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is much like the nose, fairly malty, on the sweet side, with caramel and toast
Palate: This one has a light-medium body, with an alright mouthfeel, and a fairly clean finish
The pours was probably the stand-out component of this beer, otherwise, it is fine, but kind of unexciting and kind of run-of-the-mill. Even so, it is certainly drinkable and worth trying.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz bottle from Whole Foods Foggy Bottom. Lotso malts. If lotso malts, lotso bread, mucho nut flavor is your thing, you will probably like this. It does have a surprisingly full heavy flavor. For me, the 20 IBU tasted like 10. No hop presence, and not much bittering going on at all. Need a Victory Prima pils to balance all the bread. Slightly better than a Bud. Sorry if I drag down the ratings. Not my thing.
