1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Copper in appearance. A bit of head and a few spots of lace. Nose is very malty and slightly dusty. Overly sweet, sticky and a bit flat. I must say I am not digging this, not in the least.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Got this on a trip to minnesota, the only place i have ever seen it. With choices of only buds and millers, this was the best there(except for guiness). It has a nice reddish color, good taste with little head. This is an average beer but better tthan the competition at this bar.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated at 35,000 feet on a Northwest flight from Detroit to DC. Hey...it was better then ordering the Bud Light. Sparkling amber, thick creamy off-white head. All light aromas of toasted caramel, white bread, hint of butter, with a very slight roasty, fruity undertone. Decent balance, somewhat sweet though with toasted caramel and honey being predominate. No bitternees unfortunately. Medium bodied, smooth soft carbonation, lightly toasted, semi-sweet finish. Nothing great obviously, but it beat the alternative.....

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Aroma is a bit off. First sips were not pleasant, but I had previously been having a Fosters, which is different enough to require a palate adjustment period. Light amber in color. No lace and small head. Some bitterness on the tongue but too much malty off-ness. With the exception of Finnegans, my experience with James Page's beers has been less than stellar.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear amber body with little head. This is definitely a malty beer, as the Vienna style was meant to be. The aroma is sweet with caramel, but there are significant notes of grain — and as it warmed, some hints of canned corn. The flavor is just as malty sweet as the aroma. The finish did present a very slight bitterness. Medium body and syrupy texture. This was more enjoyable colder than warmer, which tells me something.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Decent beer overall, this one pours a brownish amber colour with a nice soft sticky beige head. Noticeabley sweet malts midpalate. with prevalent aromas of balanced hops, cranberries and red licorice.

Pretty amber near headless pour. Clean. Hops and bit of berries in the nose. Interesting full hopping on a fairly mild sweet body. The Led Zep guitarist still rocks!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A sandy head doesn’t last long over a bright amber body. Malted aroma to be sure, starting sweet with a hint of non-descript fruitiness yet finishing with a drier grain profile. Malted flavor, bittersweet, with a nice body. Finishes with a hint of sourness.

Love the rich amber color of this, looks like a very dark orange/amber. Not much head or lacing. Nose is lacking as well. A bit of cookies, some maltiness, some sugary sweetness. Palate is graham crackers, mostly malt, not much else. But this is a drinkable beer.
