2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(33cl bottle) Clear, amber colour with a short beige foamy head. Sweet malty nose with notes of caramel, marzipan and vanilla. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Malt-accented taste with notes of caramel and nettle-like spice; dry and slim, slightly bitter finish with a tinge of metal. Initially a promising brew but later a bit bland (11.XI.08).

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light orange-brown (dull copper) body, thin off-white head. Aroma of toffee and fig, thin and acidic, even soapy, with toasty notes. Thin, lightly tart body with notes of tobacco, toast, and fig. Decent complexity for such a thin beer, but the watery body and acidity are underwhelming.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lightly hazed copper color with a moderate light beige head. Caramel and spaghettio aromas. Something about the sweetness and toasted malt smells that come together and for the Chef Boyardee nose that do not make this very appealing. Not a real DMS scent, just an oddity. Thinner feel with light caramel, dried fruit, pipe tobacco and toasted rye flavors. Some grassy hops in the middle. A thin vienna.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330mL bottle, pours a clear amber with a small beige head. Nose is of sweet treacly, caramel malts, toasted nuts, bread, and some honey-ish accents. Flavour is fairly light, with the same treacly caramel malts and honey notes dominating, but they are very weak. A bit of bread as well. Kind of sweet, but the body is not strong enough for it to come through much. Decent, inoffensive beer, but nothing special.

(0,33cl bottle) 202 Advent Calendar. Pours a quick dissipating off-white head atop a clear light brown body. Nose of bready malt. Decent carbonation, nice mouthfeel and good enough flavour...

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.
