3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grain and toasted malt aroma with some faint apricot and apple and a very slight touch of ethanol. Clear amber under a thick, off-white ring. Toasty and very malty flavour with faint cardboard and a clean dry finish. Low bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation, very slight bitter finish.

Pours a golden clear with a thin white top and good lacing. Aroma is mostly malt and light hop. Taste is a good malt but overall fairly boring.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber colour with an off-white head that stays a while and gives out a little lace. Perfumy nose with some caramel malts and light roasted one. Nice sweetness in the taste, but not overly, well-balanced with some fruity and caramel malts, very mild hops and hints of grain and vanilla. I really enjoyed this one a few months back (purchased in a 6-pack), but not sure about the one I am having tonight (from the discovery pack). Maybe it is what I ate, but I know I would get some more of this. A good vienna.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Beer Bistro.
Appearance : Clear amber with medium foamy white head.
Aroma : Nice malt with light citrusy hops. Nice fruity notes.
Taste : Nice fruits with nice malt and light citrusy hops. Finish malty and citrusy with light fruits.
Overall : Nothing fancy but malt is quite nice. Chewy and bready. Hops are also nice. I don’t really get why the ratings are so low... I guess I love this style. Really drinkable and refreshing. Quaffable!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample. Dark gold with medium carbonation. Aromas are of toasted malts and nuts. A bit malty sweet in the mouth, but gets nutty on the back end. A touch of herbal hop on the finish. Clean finishing. Basic, but not too bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
341 mL bottle. Copper-orange with a very small, filmy, off-white head. There is a hint of the expected maltiness in the nose, but there is also an almost alcoholic sharpness, and a very slight, vegetal, off-note. The flavour is better: mostly bready malt, and a touch of fruit. Perhaps a touch on the sweet side. Almost feels like an ale.

as usual King makes a nice version, nothing bad about it, but nothing really stands out. amberish color some foam dissapears quick. nose is grassy and somewhat sweet. flavor is similar. also found the mouthfeel a tad thin.
