2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Amber. Your average Vienna, but a bit acidic and something seemed a bit off. Nothing spectacular. Drinkable, but I won’t bother buying it again.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, many thanks DSG, smallish creamy bubbley head, clear and a bit deep golden colour, very lught bready fruity nose with a strange yeasty hint, sugary malty fruity flavour, bitterness present but too light, quite sweet.
Also quite clean and drinkable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Clear deep golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of some malt, a bit of caramel and a vegetal note. Sweetish flavor, malty, a bit bready and caramelly, with a faint vegetal hint and and a faint hint of metallic bitterness in the finish. Rather light-bodied. Pretty clean.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Dark golden body (too light to be a Vienna lager), small head. Aroma has a modest dose of sweet German hops. Mouthfeel is not too thin but the flavours are all muted. Mostly sweet malt, followed by a hint of hops. If I try very hard, I can almost detect some caramel in the finish. Or maybe it’s there because I desperately want it to be there?

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not very intensive malty aroma. Small quickly disappearing head. Clear dark golden body. Only malty sweetness in taste with almost no bitterness. Rather boring.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
50 cl bottle @ wPBF’14, no BBE info
Aroma is sweetish with strong grainy notes, some honey and apricot typical to Belgian blondes. Flavour is unpleasant with cardboard, wet paper, grainy malt and honey. Also some potato cellar notes. Not so clean. And not so vienna.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Good example of vienna lager. One of the best russian beer. Flower aroma with caramel notes. Amber color. Well balanced taste with hops in aftertaste. Recommended.
