Pour out of 12 oz bottle, did not know it was a vienna style...dark reddish brown pour with thin white head, aroma has notes of dark roasted nuts, some hints of caramel, toffee, touch of biscuit, earthy notes, slight crisp and grassy hops, hints of earthy grain and husky notes. Taste is sweet caramel, toffee, hints of earthy grain, nice snappy grass and spicy hops, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter.

Hood River, Or - on tap at the brewpub after the excellent tour. Dark amber pour, off-white head, thick lacing. Worty aroma with some fruity accents. Flavor has a hint of caramel, some bubble gum, some nutty notes. Thick enough mouthfeel.

This beer is crazy good. I haven’t enjoyed the last couple of editions of the ltd but this is exceptional. The malts are smooth and the hops are mild and crisp. So good.

The aroma is not very strong it is malty with a little roasted scent. Pours brown with frothy tan head that diminishes quickly and lots of carbonation. Taste is a weird vegetable flavor up front and then goes into a malty coffee yeasty flavor. Not my favorite. Im not sure why I keep buying these full sail ltd series.

Easily one of the lamest attempts at this style that I have had in a while. This is as about as close to Vienna as Shiner Bock is to Bock.

12oz bottle 7/25/12 Tulip¨Pours a clear medium amber witha small off white head. Aroma of roasted malt and cardboard. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is bot too shabby. Nice job.

Bottle: beautiful dark amber color, with a small off white head. Sweet, malty aromas help the well rounded flavor. It’s got a great body and finishes nice and clean.

On tap at Full Sail Hood River. Colour... Truly amber with a slight garnet hue and no head. Nose... Butterscotch candies and Malt-o-Meal with brown sugar. Palate... Light CO2, followed by a nearly candy like malt character and slight spent grain flavour that also has a bit of a tang to it. Finish is lightly sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Definitely pours darker than the image shown on ratebeer however it is only by a little. Pours light-amber bordering on dark golden with amber highlights, decent white head, and clear as a filter. Head wafts of lager-like esters, sweet malt and slightly floral. Tastes right on for an amber lager, malty sweet but not heavy bodied. A decent amount of smooth bittering rounds out the palate. Hops are definitely of the noble variety with no ctirus or distinctly american hop characteristics present. Medium-light bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a malty vienna lager that has more malt sweetness and a touch more bitterness than most amber lagers that aren’t Oktoberfest style.

Out of the bottle. Pours a brilliant caramel color with a white head. Smell is mild and malty. Taste is smooth and sweet. The sweetness lingers and provides a full mouth feel. Very good.
