Bottle [12oz] shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev. Pours a clear golden-amber with a small white head. Nice aroma of caramel malt, fruit and bit of toffee. Slightly watery flavour of grain, caramel malt and light grassy hops. Average bodied. Pretty good, a well done version of a style I enjoy.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2010 Fresh bottle from brewery: Decants as a clear deep amber with orange highlights. Creamy 3 finger cap that laces well. Well carbonated. Nose is rich in toasty-bready Vienna malts, little detectable sweetness, some earthy-woody noble hop tones ,nice fresh aroma and true to style. Medium bodied smooth mouth feel clean malty character. Taste profile is on style as well...bready-toasty wiith very light sweeness in front, hops sit back, mid palate the noble hops give off heir earthy woody bittering as the clean finish dries right out and provides a small hop bite in the end. A very good (true to style) rendition of the Vienna style, the first we have in the Ontario market at least. With a few minor tweeks this would be on par with Great Lakes Eliot Ness. Satisfying, quenching yet flavorful with a decent malt discernment and hop bite....this is a keeper. Hope it’’s not just a one off.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2010
341ml bottle shared with blankboy & tupalev. Slightly hazy/oily deep gold with a decent white head. Smells very "Ontario" - clean, grainy, a nice bit of honey and fresh grassy bitterness. Clean taste - simple grain, honey & light grass. Average to light body, carbonation and linger, finishes clean. Not bad, but needs at least one of the promising characteristics to push to the fore (grassiness, grain, even the honey character).

On tap @ Volo. Aroma is candied malt, amber, tiny custard head. Taste is a milder malt than the nose. Light bodied, balanced, sweetish. Fair.
