Well, it’s better than ok. Pours light brown, getting a bit of a floral aroma, possibly because I just washed my hands with pretty floral smelling soap. This beer is just a bit different, taste is interesting, that’s all I have right now, not a bad thing though.......

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Advent Calendar #17. Starting to bounce around now. In my mind this is not in the top 13% of Viennas, there was very little toasty flavour, like Duffman I did find it a bit metallic, but most importantly it was just weak. Mildly refreshing, but if I wanted that I’d go for a Dortmunder.

Bottle, Dec. 17th Beer Adent Calendar. Clear medium amber colour with an average white head. The character of this beer is sweet grains that are equally lightly bready and lightly toasty. Metallic note in the finish. WTF? A lot of these euro lagers possess a distinct metallic aftertaste to me. I’ve been blaming the nobel hops, but I don’t know. Another "whatever" beer for me.

Pours a reddish gold color with a beige top that leaves some sticky lacing. Aroma of bread, biscuit and light caramel. Taste is caramel and Vienna malts up front before a bit of a tangy and mildly spicy finish. Nice mouth feel to this beer, I think not would be a bit thin but the mouth feel makes every flavor jump out.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml brown bottle, from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Deep gold coloured and clear. Small layer of white foam on top, nice lacing. Nose is toasty, bit of caramel sweetness. Taste has toasty grains, bread, slight caramel sweetness. A little grassy at the end, light bitterness. Light body, decent mouthfeel and carbonation. Better than expected, a nice vienna.

Dec 17 CBAC. Dark amber with a nice head. Smells of some bready mid-roast grain. Flavour tries but does not jump over the bar. Mellow body and a doughy grain flavour.
