3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours with a clear deep copper body that has gold edges and supports a dirty white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up a bit of roasted malts, a slight spice note and sweet lagery fruity esters. The taste has a pleasing mix of roasted malts, lagery fruity esters and some vague modest bitter hoppiness. To midway and into the finish the lager yeast notes ride you into the after taste on a thin bed of fruity esters. Tasty Lager.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Read some of the previous descriptions and surprised to see how many people don’t know this style of beer. I am at a beer pairing now and the Cicerone described the Vienna Style lager perfectly. Malty, slightly breaded, with a slight roast. This beer is not supposed to be complex. I was impressed.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: 0.5l mug
From: World Market in Las Mesa (San Diego), Calif.
Purchased: Aug. 1, 2013
Consumed: Aug. 3, 2013
Poured a dark copper red murky color with 1-to-2 fingers of white head. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Above average retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled caramel malts, rye notes, iced tea, dates, skunky broccoli and faint vomit.
Tasted much better than the smell. Very malty. Also got caramel malts, rye notes, dates and some toasty bread.
Medium-to-light body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Long finish.
Was hoping for a bit more, but I wasn’t terribly happy about this beer. Definitely decent for the style, but that’s it.
