3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can, 5% a/v
Surprisingly deep orange with a thin offwhite head. Aroma is of caramel malt, just a bare hint of hops. The taste is tremendously well balanced, hints of nuts, caramel, and just a bit of fruityness. The mouthfeel is pleasantly full.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
473ml can. Pours a clear reddish copper colour with an off-white head. Visibly, very carbonated. Aroma is sweet malt, slight metallic notes, and some light hops. Tastes a bit like a watered down Fullers London Pride. Thin caramel, molasses, faint tropical fruit, with some nice hops (though thin) in the finish. It’s not bad, but it is a little too sweet, and light bodied to be successful...and not cheap either. $2.65 a can. Skip it.

Can shared by a friend. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of malty sweetness, lager yeast and mild hop. Malty flavor with lager yeast character and a crisp hop finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample from can at the Strange Brew Tasting on 02/18/2012. Pours a clear orange color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and mild hops. Light body with flavors of sweet malt, caramel and grassy hops. The finish is sweet with a short malt aftertaste. Barely average overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Okay small head and brown-copper body. Aroma of sweet hops mixed with malts, some swampwater hints in there. Flavour has strong nuttiness in it, sweetness, with a dry hoppy finish. In fact, this one works quite well - worth trying and would make a good session beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The oddest tasting beer I have ever had. It is half one of the best tasting beers I have had, and half one of the worst tasting beers. I would recommend trying it just for the pure absurdity of its taste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, Amber with a white head. Aroma of malt, floral hops, and a little citrus. minimal bitterness. I’m a big fan of the Vienna style but this does not compete even with the likes of King Vienna Lager. Probably one of the best beers on tap at Jack Astor’s but nothing really special.

can. Poured clear dark amber with a creamy tan head. Grassy aroma. Buttery mouthfeel, smooooth. Perfect weight, not too light. Caramel, nutty, a touch peppery.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark copper with a soapy off white head. I could smell it all day and not really pick up an aroma of any sort. Prickly carbonation. Bigger than the average vienna mouthfeel. Brown Bread crust, grassy hops, faint caramel. Very dry finish.
