3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
As always these guys hit it on the mark once again. Beautiful wet grass filled nose, hints of German malts. Wet at first on the palate, moving into a bittered grass note, and ending with a soured barnyard touch, all blending very well. The aged bitter note is beautiful. Quite a nice representation of the Vienne style!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Horse Brass. Nice clear amber pour with a nice bone-white head. Nice malt and bread aromas and flavors with a bit of a hop grassiness. Not a bad beer, but probably my least favorite from Heater-Allen so far.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bomber that I picked up at Belmont last Saturday. Pours a clear bright light amber with a orange/copper tint and decent size bright white head that is medium to loose in bubble size and settles down to a small loose layer. Bright lightly malted nose, ample amounts of grassy hop, some light orange and caramel. Crisp and light in the mouth feel and ample carbonation. Some bready malt, touch of caramel and bright grassy hop character. A touch vegital but still enjoyable to drink.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Copper pour, clear and bright, with a nice white head. Fresh ’field-grass’ hops, wholesome biscuit-like vienna malt, and a touch of nutty caramel in the nose. Flavor is hearth-baked bread, light caramel and spice, with pleasantly herbal hops layered throughout. The malt is not like ’modern’ bread ... but a little more coarse, like hand-ground grain straight from the earth. Body is light, carb is creamy, with lingering but mellow bitterness in the finish. Rustic, charming, and wholly rewarding after a day of outdoor endeavors. This beer is like a firm handshake from a well-trusted friend ... 3.8% seals the deal ... simple, honest, and true.

A bit of a dry finish. Perhaps I shouldn’t have tried this for the first time whilst sick. Anyhow, my least favourite out of the Heater Allen beers I’ve tried - but that says more about the quality of HA than this beer - which is not bad.
