2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light amber with a small white head. Aroma is of light cereal malts, general sweet malts, and some grassy hops. Taste is of toasted cereal malts, some light sweet malts, and grassy hops. Has a medium-light body with a watery mouthfeel and a sweet, not bitter, short, malty finish. Overall, a rather bland Vienna.

Poured from bottle. Made in Utica, NY according to the bottle. Hop aroma with malt. Amber, white head. A good amount of floral hops here, along with toasted malt. Tiny bit of sweetness. Crisp and clean Drinkability gets better as it warms Not sure what makes this German style, but I like it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle pours a very pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains and grass. Taste is a grainy malt sweetness with some grassy hop bitterness. Only slightly better than a typical American macro lager. Nothing special and not recommended.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Metal infused caramel malt aroma. Light copper color, and oddly enough light copper taste as well. Aside from that it’s mainly corn syrupy sweet malt. Smooth and overall refreshing, aside from pinging a tad on the finish. Passable in the Vienna range, does not stack up against favorites Boston Lager and Brooklyn Lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Kyoto Cosco. Deep gold to light amber. Fine, medium head. Malty nose, some caramel, a bit of diacetyl, light hop. Sweet and malty, but not overly so, grassy hops complement., with nice bitterness. Actually, it’s pretty decent. Full bodied. Balanced, great for the price.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
pretty weak offering, the least enjoyable of this mix pack. Missing the maltiness I was expecting. it will do the job but I expected better.

Nope. This is atrocious. Chew on a piece of tin foil and pour yourself a bud. Same thing. Terrible!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2012 bottle 12 oz, clear, golden/copper with ample lt beige head. The flavor is rather malty up front with a definite metallic taste followed by a rather pleasant, dry, hop bitterness (with some hop flavor) that lasts into the long finish. Not bad for cheapo beer. I’d probably buy it if I could get it without the other ales in the mixed case.
