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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Unclear orange copper, creamy off-white head lasts, leaving messy definitive stepped lacing. Aroma is muted sweet malt, citric. Sour lemon citrus, mild sweet caramel malt taste. Soft carbonation, lighter bodied, low hopped. Buttery slick citric finish. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: lightly hazy orange brown, with a short light khaki head. Aroma: malty cereal and caramel, with earthy, slightly musty hops, and hot cardboard. Taste: sweet caramel malts, with some minerality, loamy hops, and a bit of balsamic vinegar. Finish: ended with a surprising bit of sour, tangy funk, completely atypical for the style. Notes: Not very good.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper tinted body. Some caramel and toast. Doughy and a bit sour. Really not much to say about this one.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sour bready aroma. Light amber/yellow color with a small but persistent white head. Sour flavor follows into the taste and not in a good way. There’s a bit of caramel sweetness and toasted bread, but the pungent sour flavor dominates. I’m not sure if I got an infected bottle or not, but this is not to style for a Vienna ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is very faint and of malts. Flavor is sweet malts, bread, and light fruit. A strange tart/sour finish.

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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bomber pours a hazy brownish amber color with a medium off white head with light lacing. Smells of toasted nuts, lemon and toffee. Tastes sweet but a little tart as well. Seems off or slightly infected. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation. I had a hard time finishing this. I’ll have to taste the next batch to make a true review.
