2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured from big bottle. Aroma of raisin, molasses, vanilla cake. Opaque amber, beige head. Flavor surprisingly off - sour apple, white wine, roasted malt. Metallic and bitter. Drain pour.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tampa, FL - Total Wine - 22 oz bomber. Pleasant light copper colored pour with a thin light white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a small trace of lacing. A bit of a malty aroma uponing opening but fades quickly. Hard to pin down the flavor - a little bit of caramel sweetness - but slightly artificial, some ripening vegetable notes. Mouthfeel is a bit "off" - overall - had much better Viennas.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bomber pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some thin spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains with some hints of caramel and light fruits. Taste is a light fruity and grainy malty sweetness with a light grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with some decent carbonation. A nicely done brew for the style and quite refreshing and flavorful.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber pour with a khaki head. Nose is sweet bread and toasted malt, a bit of cardboard, some orange peel, and an interesting fruity character. Esters, perhaps? Tastes of caramel, bread, and toast. Some cardboard, orange peel, grass, and sweet fruits. Just kind of sweet and not much else going on.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Apple aroma, light bodied amber Vienna with grainy malt flavor, and sour aftertaste. Paired with Danish Blue and Philly Soft Pretzel the thin palate of the Vienna was evident. I picked up a bomber @ Total Wine Claymont, De for about five bucks, deduct a two dollars and I believe we have come to a fair price for a bomber.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white frothy head. Slight, yet malty nose to this. Taste is also malty, like a fermented cereal. Meh.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Moderate cereal and nutty for the malt, light orange and dough for the hops and yeast, with cardboard and faint dried dark fruit in the background. Head is small, fizzy turning creamy, beige with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy, light orangey-brown. Flavor starts moderately acidic and a bit salty, then finishes lightly acidic and faintly bitter. Palalte is medium, watery with a soft carbonation. Smells nice, complex but there is not a lot of flavor in this Vienna.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden color, low head, aroma is light malt. Flavor is crisp clean malt, not sweet not thin. There is some hop bitterness and just a touch of malt complexity in there to keep make this a reasonably satisfying beer. Among lagers, this works for me pretty well, and I would buy it again.
