3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Light amber with a thin, but nice topping. Little aroma at first, but this has a nice caramel-malt flavor, and nicely bittered on the swallow. Excellent Vienna-style lager.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Light copper amber in color with a thin off white head. Aroma is a sweet doughy caramel, but not strongly pronounced. Carbonation level is high making the beer have an unpleasanrt palate when coupled to the thin body. Drinkable, but not memorable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Clear and deep amber with a tinge of copper. Head almost completely disappeared, but it had a lively carbonation. Malts were very bready, grainy and husky. Minuscule amount of sweetness. Finished with a healthy amount of dry bitterness. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Not too bad, though it did seem a little unbalanced.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
4 oz taster draft at the brew pub in Dillon, Colorado. The pour is a clear golden, with a smallish off white head. Aroma is not much, maybe a hint of sweet malt. Taste is lightly clean malt sweetness, some nice floral, even a touch of lemon in the back. Much more flavor than I was expecting from the soft nose. Palate is thin to medium, coats mouth a touch, the after taste lingers some. Overall a tasty Amber Lager.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nothing really going on in this beer. A little more maltiness is needed to provide a flavor that catches up with it's appearance. No real faults just rather plain and unexciting. Proabably much better on a ski trip in the Colorado Rockies than from the bottle in TN.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Arapahoe Basin, tap: Pours amber/brown with an off-white head. Aroma is lightly roasted malts, caramel, lager-smell, hops, and a teenth of fruitiness. Taste is mostly similar. Slightly sweet, but nothing close to cloying. Nice underlying hop taste. Well-balanced and easy to drink (especially after a day of skiing).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery while dining sans kiddos. Sometimes Viennas can get a little boring but this is not one of those times. Nice, sweeter malt character. Good.
