3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep amber woody copper with a thin lasting off white head- slight lace. Aroma is nutty, toffee, slight vege with green grassy hops, slight mint, then more slightly burnt or toasted malts, and some bread. Flavor is toast, biscuit, slight burnt hint, grass, mineral, slight metallic off hoppy twang and a mild bitterness. Gets a bit better as it warms up. Ok.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body under a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring pretty quickly. The nose is sweet vienna malt with a bit of light fruitiness and minimal to no hops. The flavor is fairly sweet with that little bit of fruitiness emerging on the back end that’s a bit of a problem in a Vienna Lager. Minimal to no hops to balance out the sweetness from the malt. Not quite as clean as I’d like. Light to medium bodied with a bit of cling to the finish and minimal soft carbonation. Meh, this is one I could pass on were I faced with the choice of having it again.
