3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark copper in color, with little head. Malty aroma with a little yeast in the background. Good bitterness yet still malty. This is a beer I could drink all night.

This was a very fruity beer. Beautiful color. Almost reminded me of an IPA. Very refreshing.

Bottle. Light amber, tarnished color. Some mildly oat roasted malt flavors. Mostly a hoppy-ish beer in the end. Watery texture. It’s a lager.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear reddish appearance, good head formation. Fairly clean malty aroma, mildly toasty. Sweet smooth creamy malt palate, mild spiciness. Fairly bitter citric finish seems a little out of place but pretty good beer overall.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2004 My first "Vienna", tried this after actually driving through the Riverwest area on the way to a friends..
Pours a beautiful dark red/amber color. Aroma is malt with a hint of something else there. Flavor is dominated by Malt, with caramel and roasted tones to it with a crisp citrus hop aftertaste. Overall a bit malty to me, but a damn fine beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle: dark red-orange, clear liquid. Creamy head and elegant lacing…malty aroma with some honey & fresh flowers. Nice hoppiness on the palate…surprisingly clean and tasty – a light caramel stickiness rounds out the hop/malt combination of flavours. I could have had several more – a first from Lakefront.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark ruby amber with a thick diminishing off white head. Lightly floral aroma of caramel, dried fruit - apple and orange, and bread with a hint of spice. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. This could be a decent session beer. Flavor of dried fruit - apple, plum and orange, toasted bread, caramel and hints of spice and smoke. Nicely balanced. Good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This brew pours with a deep amber/ Red body topped by a meidum thick off-white head with some lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty with a flowery hoppiness, a slight breadiness and a touch of caramel. Nothing special. The flavor is slighlty sweet yet well balanced with bitterness, with a touch of flowery hoppiness and a slight breadiness. Again nothing special. Meidum bodied and smooth.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good amber/red color,small off white head that managed to have a decent hangtime,and leave a little at the sides.Nice malty semi-sweet aroma with a little fruit and hops.Very nice flavor,light malt with a very decent amount of hops coming through but not over poweringly enough to make it bitter.The fruit is a nice mild grapefruit.This is almost a light version of a pale ale IMO and very drinkable,makes me wish i could get this stuff up here because i could definately go through alot of these this summer.Thanks to Jcapriotti for sending this up to me.
