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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to GT2. Light toffee colored pour. Nose and flavor bring caramel and light spicy hop profile. Drinkable, but to be expected for a <4% brew. Definitely a Vienna and true to style, but not really captivating in any way. I could crush a bomber, but I didn’t really love the stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
651mL thanks to brainlair. Pours a clear, orange with soapy, white foam. Okay to weak formation and soapy lacing. Nose is celery, tomato, whole wheat cracker, German malt, some soap. Taste is lemon detergent, some oil, mild wheat cracker, strange. Palate is densely malty, light grassy bitterness. Feels extremely German, but not necessary complete, fresh, or very good.
