3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fresh bomber. Dark, hazy, slightly ruddy brownish-amber body. Small, quickly fading blanket of cream colored foam for a head. Skinny, drippy arches and flares of lace. The nose is malty, showing nicely caramelized sugars and baking bread dough. I get a hint of crusty cookie, and there’s a slightly odd alkaline note. It’s very slightly tinny/metallic, but not annoyingly so. Hops are floral and herbaceous, suggesting of sage and maybe some drying grass. Flavors largely follow suit, mostly malty, but sufficiently hopped with unique green herbal notes. There’s a mildly acidic tang that tends to cut through the doughy, bready maltiness. The palate is moderate in stature and well carbonated, drinking fairly easy, and finishing with crop, cleaning action. Decent little beer here, but nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a cloudy amber color with a small but persistent head of off white foam. The nose has light fruit and malt notes. The flavor has some cracker, more fruit than it should, and a faint hint of both caramel and metallic notes. A hint of sweetness up front, a faint bitterness in the back, evening out in the end for a medium finish. Light to medium body, you could certainly have a few of these. Not entirely bad, but it seems to be wandering aimlessly.

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.

2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a thin head on a cloudy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is spicy biscuits and lemon. Really nice.
The taste is sweet upfront with a sour middle and finish. I’m not sure if it’s intended to be sour... After a few more drinks I find it difficult to continue to consume. A bad batch?
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
I’ll wait a year or two to try again.
