4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Transfer from BA review from 7-3-12 -
\Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a lovely amber color with a big off white head that has a wonderful retention. The head faded very slowly over time to give a good level of lacing.
Smell – The smell is heaviest in a bready and biscuit aroma. These are mixed some lighter sweet caramel a mild citrus hop aroma.
Taste – A smooth lightly roasted and bready flavor meets the tongue. This is mixed with some light nutty flavors as well as a very light caramel flavor. The carmel fades and the nuttiness gets a bit stronger as the taste advances. While these flavors transition, notes of a citrus hop also come to the tongue. At the very end, the taste bitters ever so slightly leaving a rather nice bready-lighty bitter flavor on the tongue. Very pleasing.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is just above average in creaminesss with a carbonation level that is just below average to average. Both are great for the lighter roasted flavors, but niehter are too intense to take away from the flavors and drinkability.
Overall – One fantastic easy drinking brew with great flavors. A great drinking experience for this Vienna.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours a clear red-amber color with a nice off white foamy head. Decent lacing. Aroma of malt and a little hop character. Sweet malt backbone with a crisp light hop finish. Still, and sweet aftertaste. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
Several times poured into a pilsener and a couple times poured into a pint glass - there really wasn’t much noticeable difference.
The appearance was a nice golden amber hazy sort of color with a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Once the head died, there was some light stringy lacing sticking to both glasses for the most part.
The smell had a nice roasty maltiness running all about the nose. I’d say it was a decent caramel of sorts that made everything seem right about it.
The taste was slightly sweet, but not bitter. It was somewhat roasty, but also a bit nutty.
On the palate, it sat about a light to medium in body with a decent sessionable quality about it.
Overall, I say this was a good Vienna Lager well worthy of having again if I ever saw it again.

From bottle. Clear amber color. Aroma is bready malt, caramel, and grass. Taste is honey, caramel, nutty bread, grass, and a hint of pitted fruit. Full mouthfeel, with an aftertaste that actually builds on the flavor notes and lingers.

Pours a dark amber with frothy white head. Smells kind of like vegetables and malt. Tastes of hops, vegetables, nuts, and bread. Medium palate. Ok beer for my taste.
