Stupid beer! as i was taking a pic of this brew for the beer sites, my camera slipped, and i dropped the bitch and the screen busted, fuck! .. So this beer will will have to drown my sorrows .. . Pours a dark tan, with amazing head (which actually overflowed all over my side table) .. . aroma is not all that good, dusty and brown .. . Um... is it right to buy a Chrysler? .. . very smooth stuff, taste of light grain, caramel and nuts .. . A pretty nice brew, and quite a well made example of the style .. . Hello. Hello? Anybody there? What’s this, I hear the phone ring, and suddenly there’s nothing. I’m listening and there’s no talking. Hello, mister, who are you? Why would they call if they don’t want to talk to you?

Thanks to Cavie for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the grain and grass, with not too much else going on. The flavor is similar. The toffee and grain notes really stand out, with some grass from the hops thrown in. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a nice orange copper color with a nice respectable head. The nose is fluffy and toasty with some crisp clean malts, ample biscuit and a light sweet underlying caramel note. Chewy mouthfeel with a nice moderate body and a clean crisp maltiness and lingering hop note in the finish. Very well put together and a balanced tail. Refreshing and big bodied all in one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 6/22/201. This Vienna pours a medium copper amber color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel malt, toast, touch of fruit and some hops. A medium bodied Vienna. The malts are caramel and semi sweet. The hops are floral and grapefruity. Decent carbonation. A little drier than most Viennas, with a nice crisp finish. A surprisingly refreshing beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with a hint of bitterness.
